With little or no notice, hurricanes and severe storms can wreak havoc on your home and property


Hurricanes and tropical storms hit Florida almost every year, often causing damage to homes and landscapes. You can help protect your home or business by making sure your trees and landscape are more hurricane-resistant, so it’s less likely you’ll suffer severe damage during any storm.

Each year hurricane season begins on June 1st and lasts five months, with storms typically peaking in August and September. Healthy, trimmed trees are critical to avoiding potential damage to your home or property due to flying debris. As with every hurricane season regardless of forecast, knowing the essentials of how and when to prepare could truly be a life saver.

“Those beautiful established trees that tower above many homes can be a cause for damage or downed power lines during a storm. So, now’s the time to prepare for a storm before it’s on the horizon. If you wait until a hurricane is on your doorstep, the odds are that you will be under stress and tree service businesses will be overwhelmed with service calls,” stated James Maltby, owner of Maltby’s Tree Service and Landscaping.

“It’s important to have your trees inspected and if needed, pruned by a professional right away. This can be done quickly and will save you money in the long run. In most cases, maintaining trees is far less expensive than removing or replacing them, and costs less than repairing structural damage to your home or business. This proactive measure can help assure your trees are healthy and reduce risk of storm damage to your home or property,” stated Maltby.

Trees at risk that need professional service can have:

• Branches that are rubbing each other or rubbing wires on your home or business

• Branches that are touching or laying on your rooftop

• Low hanging br-anches that obstruct the street or sidewalk

• Branches that appear diseased or insect infested
