Falling trees and limbs causes millions of dollars in damage each year according to the insurance industry. Trees can cause underground damage when uprooted as well. If you own a home with trees on your property, look for these signs of potential problems:
Cracks in trunks or large limbs
Hollow or decayed trees
Trees that are leaning
Branches hanging over your roof line or screen enclosure
Limbs in contact with power lines
Good landscaping can prevent many problems. Pruning can be a big job so hire a professional if the job is too big (or dangerous) for you to handle alone. And make sure to take preventative measures now before the next hurricane season becomes active!
