With winter and spring storms on the horizon, you may already be worrying about how your property is going to hold up and who will take care of the storm damage cleanup.
While the storms themselves may not pose much risk to you and your family’s well-being, severe weather can really do a number on your landscape.
From trees and shrubs to your carefully planted flowers, the winds and rain that come from hurricanes, snow storms, and thunderstorms often leave a lot of damage in their wake.
Fortunately, Beautiful Country Tree Services is here to help you and your property recover quickly with our essential storm damage cleanup services.
Below, we’re breaking down the kinds of impact each storm can have, as well as the storm cleanup services you may find useful to get your property back into tip-top shape.
How Different Storms Cause Different Types Of Damage
Thunderstorms, snow storms, and hurricanes can all cause damage to trees and landscaping.
While it’s true each storm causes damage, the way they cause damage is different.
In that sense, what Tolstoy said about families (“All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way…”) can also be applied to storms!
Thunderstorms can damage trees and landscaping in a number of ways. Strong winds associated with thunderstorms can break branches, uproot trees, or knock over shrubs and other plants. Lightning can also strike trees, causing damage or even starting fires. Heavy rain or hail can damage plants and trees by causing bruises or breaking branches.
Snow storms can also cause damage to trees and landscaping. Heavy snow can break branches or uproot trees, particularly if the snow is wet and heavy. Snow can also damage plants and shrubs if it is left on them for an extended period of time, as it can cause the plants to become weighed down and break.
Hurricanes can cause significant damage to trees and landscaping, particularly if the hurricane is strong and brings with it high winds and heavy rain. Hurricanes can uproot trees, break branches, and knock over plants and shrubs. In addition, the flooding that can occur during a hurricane can damage or kill plants and trees by causing them to become waterlogged.
It is important for homeowners to take steps to protect their trees and landscaping from storms, such as by pruning trees to remove dead or damaged branches, and by securing loose items in the yard that could be blown around in strong winds.
Our Storm Damage Cleanup Services
While homeowners can do some work to prepare their landscaping for a storm, there may come a point where a professional like Beautiful Country Tree Services is needed after the fact.
We offer a wide range of storm damage cleanup services. Below you’ll find how specific ones may be useful for your home:
Leaf and debris removal
After a storm, it is common for leaves and other debris to accumulate in yards and around homes. Removing these leaves and debris is important for a number of reasons.
First, it can help to prevent damage to lawns and other plants by preventing the leaves and debris from smothering them.
Second, removing leaves and debris can help to prevent tripping hazards and improve the overall appearance of the property.
Replanting and re-sodding
If a storm has damaged or killed plants or grass, replanting and re-sodding can help to restore the landscaping to its original condition.
This can be especially important if the damaged plants or grass were an important part of the overall design of the landscape.
Corrective tree pruning to damaged trees
Pruning damaged trees can help to remove dead or damaged branches and promote healthy growth. This can help to prevent further damage to the tree and improve its appearance.
Tree removal, stump removal, and grinding
If a storm has damaged or toppled a tree, it may need to be removed for safety reasons. Stump removal and grinding can help to remove any remaining roots and debris, which can make it easier to plant new trees or shrubs in the area.
Emergency tree services can be particularly important after a storm when time is of the essence.
