Trees often lose some branches as a result of the strong winds that accompany a weather storm. Pruning is strongly recommended to preserve the plants. Let’s take stock.
Branches broken by high winds usually have wounds and tears that, without proper care, may attract insects or promote fungus. The presence of these pests weakens the tree in the long term.
The sanitation pruning is precisely an intervention that aims to adjust the cuts of the branches so that they are more neat and clean in order to preserve the tree as well as to ensure its good development on the long term. Depending on the case, it is only afterwards that the necessary treatments should be applied. Pruning is also a good way to trim the tree to improve its appearance.
Pruning, especially sanitation pruning, is a complex procedure that requires specific techniques in order not to aggravate the damage and to preserve the tree. On the other hand, this is a dangerous mission that exposes you to the risk of falling from heights, especially since the storm has probably weakened several branches.
Therefore, it is highly recommended that a qualified professional be called in to prune a tree following a weather storm. He has the knowledge and skills necessary to perform the mission according to the standards and without aggravating the damage.
Also, he has the appropriate equipment to intervene safely and without putting you in danger.
At Arboxygène, we offer pruning services in Granby and its surroundings as well as in Montreal and on the South Shore. Why choose us? On the one hand, all the solutions we propose as well as our interventions are respectful of the environment and nature. In addition, we have experience in the field.
On the other hand, we systematically proceed to a diagnosis of the general state of the trees before intervening in order to identify all the damages to be corrected and to find the most adapted solutions. Some plants may be too old or too diseased, which means that felling is the most reasonable option. This is also how we can define the treatments to be applied, if necessary.
Falling branches, or even trees, following a strong wind can cause human and material damage of varying severity. It is therefore highly recommended to call a professional for safety pruning, or emergency felling if necessary, when a weather storm is announced.
