Nashville summer storms are nothing new. So you probably already know that one minute it can be sunny and the next it is stormy with flash floods and fallen branches. This is a common occurrence in Middle Tennessee, so it is important to be cautious and prepared if disaster strikes your own landscape. If the worst occurs and a tree or a large branch falls and causes damage or obstruct a driveway or road, stay level-headed and have an action plan.
Keep these things in mind during those volatile summer thunderstorms:
It is easier said than done, we know! But staying calm will keep things running smoothly from the moment the tree falls until the damage has been fixed and things are back to normal. Remember that we are here to help! Our team of experienced arborists knows how to quickly and efficiently resolve the problem.
Assess the damage
Check to see what damage has been done. Ultimately, assess the situation and the damage to ensure everyone’s safety. Your family’s safety is our number one priority. If there is structural damage to your home, call for help immediately. If the trees are obstructing a roadway, check to see if any alternate routes are available. If power lines are down, call the Nashville Electric Service to report an outage. Insurance companies will need to be called if there is property damage, so make sure you have the correct number handy.
Call the Emergency Team Service
Our tree service can take care of multiple emergency needs such as removing trees and large branches from roadways and other structures. Licensed and insured, our team of emergency experts will remove the fallen tree from your landscape or roadway so your life can get back to normal quickly.
Schedule follow-ups for other trees
One of the biggest recommendations we make to our clients is to schedule regular tree service check-ups. While some emergency situations are out of our hands, a lot of fallen trees can be avoided if an arborist had previously come out to check on the trees. An arborist would be able to alert Nashvillians if trees are at risk of falling due to decay, disease or other issues.
Nashville weather is fickle, which is why it is important to stay prepared! When in doubt, contact our emergency team and they can assist you with any issues you might come across.
