Each year, Tucson experiences a monsoon season associated with heavy rains, high winds, and spectacular lightning shows. While the monsoons bring much-needed rain to the desert, they can also cause damage to your landscaping that could put your home or your family at risk. As monsoon season reaches full swing, it’s important to consider the dangers of damaged tree branches and why it’s best to contact your landscaping service if you spot tree damage following a storm.
One of the biggest concerns associated with damaged branches is the risk of property damage they pose. Branches that have suffered storm damage could fall on your home, your car, your deck, or any other area of your property at any time, causing extensive damage to roofing, siding, windows, and more that will require costly repair. Even if a damaged branch looks stable, it’s best to contact a landscaping expert to assess its integrity and remove it if necessary before the branch has an opportunity to fall on your home or its occupants.
Damaged tree branches can also harm your home’s landscaping in many ways. When a tree suffers a damaged branch, the entire tree may become weakened and more susceptible to further damage, pest infestation, or disease. Alternatively, branches that fall on other areas of your landscaping can injure these plants beyond recovery, requiring you to replace these portions of your landscaping in addition to handling the damaged tree. Damaged branches can also fall on and affect irrigation systems and decorative landscaping features, increasing the costs associated with their removal as well.
