What to Do If You Have Need for Emergency Tree Service

We may get a couple more glimpses of warm weather in the next month or so, but it won’t be long before the snow starts flying and the chance of winter storms will increase. While we make it through most of these storms unscathed, there may be times when the storms get bad enough that winds, ice, and snow can cause significant damage to a tree or branches on your property. When this happens, it’s important to leave the work in the hands of experienced professionals to ensure that no further damage occurs. Trying to handle this work yourself also increases the chances of personal injury. Emergency Tree Service is always available to handle these problems in a safe and effective manner. In today’s post, we will discuss things you should and should not do when you have tree damage on your property.

Stay Away From Downed Power Lines

This should be self-explanatory, but under no circumstances should you get near a downed power line in a storm. You have no way of knowing if it’s live or not, and one touch could result in serious injury or even death. If you see a downed power line, you should immediately contact your power company and let the experts handle it. Once they have deemed the area safe, the cleanup process can begin, but we cannot stress enough to keep your distance from any downed power line, whether spring, summer, fall, or winter.

Don’t Just Start Cutting Away

Many people own chainsaws and may be tempted to start cutting the tree themselves. This may be okay for smaller trees laying in your yard, but care must be taken for larger trees with larger branches, especially if they have crashed into your home. One wrong cut, and you could be looking at more serious damage and even possibly injury. Contact Emergency Tree Service as soon as possible, so we can inspect the damage and determine a safe strategy for removing the tree and/or branches. Not only can we remove the damaged tree, but we can provide tarping service to keep more water from entering your home before you can have a contractor come out to complete the repairs.
