Winter is coming whether you want it to or not. This year’s spring and summer seasons started out cold for most parts of the country. The summer did not have much in the way of those hot days. Then in late August it dried up and stayed hot. There were 90 degree days in September up in the Northeast! Plants took a big hit with the lack of rain. This leaves a lot of limbs on trees needing felled before winter. We called a company that does tree pruning in Asheville NC to come out and trim our trees.
We know that the fall and winter is going to bring some bad weather. We also know that is when a lot of those limbs that are dead are going to come down. If not during the winter storms and winds, then they will come down during the spring. Here in North Carolina we still have some time to go for the active hurricane season too. I am proactive about things rather than being reactive. Let me tell you what the difference is when it comes to tree problems.
My neighbor tells me that is what he has insurance for when I mentioned trimming back the trees to prevent limb and tree falls. That does not even make sense to me. Trees look better when they are pruned, and they are safer. Our trees get pruned, and one that was in bad shape was cut down. He had a tall straggly tree on his property that had a large limb break off in a wind storm. It fell and smashed a section of fence. The repair cost was just over a grand. He had a $500 deductible on his insurance, and he had the inconvenience of not being able to let his dogs out because of the fence damage. We get our trees pruned and do not have any problems.
