Trees, especially very large ones, look like they’d be able to handle anything that comes at them.On the contrary, they’re often at risk of damage when it comes to harsh weather. But there are steps you can take to make sure yours can take the brunt of a storm before it happens.

Have your trees inspected by a certified arborist to make sure they’re as healthy as possible. Diseased trees could easily fall during a storm, which could be dangerous. The tree-care specialist might also remove limbs that are close to power lines, along with other pruning services.

After the storm hits, we will clean up the area and assess the damage to your trees, in order to predict any future problems. So for trusted storm damage cleanup in West Chicago or the area in general, call 1-800-TREE-GUY. We’ve been in business for more than 20 years and can handle every type of emergency tree care!

Evaluating tree damage

The first thing to remember when assessing your damage after a storm is to keep your safety in mind. Pay attention to branches that may be stuck in trees but could still fall on you.

A few other tips to consider:

  • You should avoid getting close to trees that are leaning against any power lines, because they can electrocute someone. Avoid power lines in general.
  • If limbs are hanging overhead, they may need to be taken down with a chainsaw. You should leave this type of work up to the professionals, because it could be dangerous.
  • Be wary of folks who just show up to help and call themselves professionals. Scam artists come out of the woodwork (no pun intended) after storms, so protect yourself.
  • If a trunk of the tree has been split open during a storm, it’s probably not going to be able to be saved. We’ll assess all damage and let you know what we’re looking at.
