Tucson landscaping companies are being called every day during the summer months because trees are suffering wind damage. If your trees have become damaged in a storm, take the following steps to repair your landscape and revive your trees.
Assess the Situation
After a Tucson monsoon, it is not difficult to see the aftermath, especially in your trees. Limbs, leaves, and bark are probably all over the yard, so it may be difficult to know the first step toward fixing your wind-damaged trees. Assess the state of your yard and the trees that have been affected. Look for dangerously-low branches that may soon break, and ensure there are no damages to the rest of your property.
Exercise Safety Precautions
When approaching your damaged tree, look out for downed power lines, unstable branches, or any exposed utility lines. If you choose to trim a few damaged branches back, then exercise extreme caution, and do not use tools you are unfamiliar with, and leave chainsaw and ladder work to your Tucson landscaping company.
Remove Small, Broken Branches
As long as you can do it safely, you may want to remove small branches that are noticeably broken. Do not tear these branches or sticks off of the tree, though. That can damage the tree or bark even further. Use pruning shears to remove these small, damaged branches. Pick up the branches as they fall and dispose of them safely and in an environmentally-friendly manner.
Call the Professionals
If your trees have sustained significant damage after a monsoon or heavy winds, then you must call a Tucson landscaping company. Experienced landscapers can safely and effectively treat your wind-damaged tree so it will regrow with healthy limbs. They also have the correct tools and training to repair and prune your tree without damage to your property or danger to your family.
