Storm Damaged Trees
Bad weather and storms can cause tremendous amounts of damage to trees and weaken them beyond repair or reversal. Storm damaged trees can be dangerous for a number of reasons.
One they can cause harm to you or the general public, two they can severely damage your property and three they can cause damage to your vehicles and even your home. Without proper tree care and maintenance, you run the risk of having any or all of these number of things happening to you or others in the affected area.
Storm damaged trees aren’t always obvious to the untrained eye, the tree doesn’t have to fall down to be affected and weakened by a storm. The tree could have weakened branches/limbs that are still a real danger to people, surrounding areas and buildings.
Removal of Fallen Trees
Removing a fallen tree can be a daunting task; this is especially true for home owners with insufficient tools and man power. You need all kinds of tree surgeon equipment from chainsaws to cut the tree into manageable sections, to trucks that take the waste away after the cutting is complete.
Our team has removed many fallen trees due to storm damage and has the ability to act quickly whilst ensuring the safety of all the surrounding areas. If you have a fallen tree in your property, GraftinGardeners are always willing to lend a hand and take all the necessary steps to asses and remove the tree.
