What to Do with Storm-Damaged Trees

Posted on July 18, 2017

We are well into summer here in New England, and though it’s been a mild summer, there are always tree removal nhchances of severe storms brought on by changes in temperature. As a business that specializes in tree removal, land clearing, and logging in NH, we have a few suggestions on how to handle the storm-damaged trees that end up in your yard.

Be on alert

It can be difficult to determine all of the broken branches and limbs on a tree when it was healthy and full, so there is always a chance there are parts of a tree that can fall off at any second. You never want to risk your safety to learn the specifics. Keep your family and pets away from the tree until you can call a professional to take a look at it.

Assess the damage

Did the tree or its branches hit your home, garage, car, or another person’s property? Documenting these instances for insurance is essential. From a safe distance, take pictures of the damage and call the appropriate organizations to ensure these claims are filed away quickly and correctly.

Do not attempt to repair or remove it yourself
