We’re heading toward the end of July and summer storms are hitting us full force. One minute the sun is shining, the next minute hail and rain hits Nashville hard. With severe storm weather comes the possibility of damaging winds and flooding that can harm your trees, property and landscape. And of course, there are certain areas in Middle Tennessee that are much more susceptible to tree damage, so it’s important to be aware of your landscape and know who to call in case of an emergency.
What qualifies as a tree care emergency? Areas with high flood plains, old trees or wooded areas are all susceptible to major damage. Trees with multiple trunks or old trees can cause problems during a severe storm. In addition, trees that grow in an open landscape such as on a lot can succumb to damage during storms, especially with straight-line winds or lightning. If these situations cause damage to homes, property or block roadways, you should call the Parke Company. If you find yourself in need of emergency tree care services, contact an arborist at the emergency line at 615-201-9999 for immediate assistance.
What qualifies regular service? While certain areas are more susceptible than others, it’s important to have an arborist come out to check your trees regularly to avoid any unnecessary damage throughout the year. This will not only save you time in the long run, but prevent a lot of stress. Tree care is crucial to the longevity of your trees, but check-ups are not an emergency. Regular maintenance includes health analysis, tree removal and crown thinning. Need tree care or landscape services but it’s not an emergency? Contact Dan Beasley directly at 615-405-6548 to book an appointment.
We are right in the thick of summer, which means we shouldn’t rule out more severe storms. If it’s been awhile since you’ve had regular maintenance done on your trees and landscape, we recommend you call an arborist to avoid any unnecessary damage in the future. However, sometimes the Parke Company knows it can’t always be avoided — that’s where emergency tree care comes in. For more information regarding both emergency tree services or regular tree care, contact the Parke Company.
