Managing Storm Damaged Trees in the Springtime

February 28th, 2020 · No Comments

Along with the changing of seasons comes some seasonal shifts in the tree care process in Rochester, MN. Regardless of the temperature outside or the green leaves sprouting in your neighborhood, keeping your trees safe from storm damage is just as important in the spring as it is in the winter.

Tumultuous spring weather and winds can lead to storm damaged trees. Knowing what to do and calling Maier Tree and Lawn’s tree care professionals in the aftermath may be the difference between trees that thrive and those that don’t survive.

Storm damage to trees comes in many forms. Some types of damage can be obvious, like uncharacteristic leaning or large, broken branches, while more subtle storm damage can be harder to spot with the naked eye. For instance, damage or wounds to the trunk may not seem especially dangerous, but if left unattended, may become entry points for pests, insects, or simply an avenue for further damage to occur.

Even if you can see the storm damage in question, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll be a quick and easy fix. Tree care requires a careful touch and a thoughtful eye. Without proper care even minor looking damage can be exacerbated. Storm damage may require a wide variety of treatments such as cabling, pruning, staking, wound repair, and more. Even if the damage seems unimpressive or easily fixable, that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s safe to tackle on your own.

When it comes to storm damage, significant or otherwise, consulting a tree care professional can protect your trees from further harm. In fact, post-storm tree care can save your trees from damage and keep you out of harm’s way as well. Storm damaged trees can be unpredictable, and trying to tackle the damage on your own can be hazardous in ways you may not expect. Tree care experts can provide the support, safety, and skills you need in order to guide your trees to a full recovery.
