Tree Damage Due to Winds and Storms
Trees may cause damage to property in various ways. For example, a tree root may grow into the pipes or fall because of the untreated cracks in tree trunks. Still, the most common type of damage is caused by trees and large branches falling on the property during storms and high winds. A tree may cloak drains, damage power lines, and block exits from the building creating a substantial safety hazard.
This is why it is important to attend to the warning signs and treat a tree susceptible to failure in a wind storm:
Mushrooms at the base of the tree, insect damage, and hollowed-out cavities may all signify tree decay. Dying and decaying trees may be easily uprooted or damaged during a storm. This increases the potential for tree damage to your property.
Excessive End Weight
Horizontal limbs of a tree are fighting both gravity and wind. They may be easily broken if not pruned or cut to the proper length. This is especially true during storms with high winds and heavy rains. Tree maintenance prevents this.
Some trees that are too thick or that have internal branches and branches rubbing on each other are also prone to failure. Attending to this problem now can save you hassle and money later by preventing storm tree damage on your property.
Poor Branch Structuring
Two limbs of equal size growing from the same union are weaker and may split at the union during a storm. Cutting one of the limbs, or fastening the two limbs with a cable system, may prevent tree damage, and thereby, structural damage.

Who is Responsible for Fallen Tree Removal?
What happens if your neighbor’s tree falls on your property? The first thing you should do is file a claim with your insurance company. The guidelines dictate that you are responsible for completing tree damage removal on your personal property. This is the case even if the fallen tree caused an injury.
On the other hand, your neighbor might be liable if they received prior warning of the tree being dangerous. For city-owned trees, the next step will vary based on the municipality in question. Should you ever have questions or concerns, contact your insurance company and/or a lawyer.
Every situation is unique of course, so you’ll want to speak with your insurance representative directly. Always check that the tree damage is covered by insurance before beginning tree damage cleanup and tree damage repairs.
Water Damage Restoration Process
As soon as you give us an emergency call, we come to your property to assess the damage and develop a viable tree damage restoration plan. If the damage is covered by insurance, we will work with an insurance adjuster to help you make a claim.
Specialists assess the damage done to the structure and remove the tree in the way that minimizes further damage. The trunk is often cut into pieces for safe removal. Trying to remove tree trunks on your own may result in injuries and further damage to the property.
If the fallen tree has compromised the roof, windows or walls, board-up services are needed to keep the area secure and prevent secondary water damage from sudden rain. Many years of experience help our crew board-up the damaged building and tarp the roof in just a few hours.
Once you discover water damage in your home, determining if the material can or should be dried is vital. Determining to either remove or dry in place can be the difference of additional cost and lengthy repairs.
