Have you noticed the blocks of ice along sides of I-40, I-65 and 1-440? Just imagine what havoc that ice could cause on trees. Even though trees are bare and brittle during the winter months, it’s important to keep them happy and healthy during their hibernation state. Tree care is vital to the livelihood of your trees all year long. And some people don’t understand how important it is to keep your trees healthy and have proper tree care done even during the bitter, cold months of winter. Even living in Nashville, weather can get bad. Ice, snow and freezing temperatures are all possibilities, so it’s important to prepare your trees for this possible severe weather with a few necessary tree services.
It’s important to note that tree care should be done by professionals. Even though it might cost a bit more money on the front end, you are saving your valuable time and ensuring the job is done correctly to avoid any possible emergency situations. Having a professional by your side to take care of your trees, you’re reducing the risk of property damage, emergency tree service situations or harming yourself and others.
Services to consider when preparing for winter storms or extreme weather include:
Remove deadwood and loose branches to create better airflow. Even winter storms can create high winds causing branches to fly off tree and damage property.
Pruning trees keep trees strong through any possible ice storms. If trees have too many branches, the trees or branches could break from carrying too much ice. Not only does this damage the tree, but it can also damage property, knock out power lines or cause road hazards.
Leaning trees can also be another cause for concern. Just like a summer storm, strong winds, heavy ice or snow could affect the tree’s position. If the trees are leaning toward a home or other type of property, it’s important to contact the Parke Company right away for an evaluation.
