HOW TO KEEP TREES HEALTHY DURING STORMS
Keeping trees healthy during storms is important for ensuring their long-term survival and reducing the risk of damage to surrounding property. Here are some ways to keep trees healthy during storms:
- Regular pruning of trees helps remove dead or weakened branches and maintain the tree’s overall structure. This reduces the risk of branches falling during storms and causing damage.
- Watering and fertilizing trees properly can help to keep them healthy and strong, making them more resistant to storm damage. Ensure that trees are watered deeply and frequently during periods of drought, and use a balanced fertilizer to provide them with the nutrients they need.
- Trees may sometimes be weakened or damaged, making them more susceptible to storm damage. Installing supports such as cables or braces can help to stabilize the tree and reduce the risk of damage.
- If a tree shows signs of decay, disease, or damage, it may be hazardous and should be removed before a storm. A certified arborist can help determine if a tree is dangerous and needs removal.
- During storms, trees are vulnerable to wind and other elements. Consider using windbreaks or other structures to help protect trees from these elements and reduce the risk of damage.
- Mulching around the base of trees helps to retain moisture in the soil and prevent damage to the tree’s root system. This can help to keep trees healthy and strong during storms.
- Regular monitoring of trees for signs of stress, such as wilting or leaf discoloration, can help to identify problems early and prevent damage during storms.
