Do you have a tree emergency?
Tree damage is considered an emergency situation when a broken limb has fallen onto your property, is blocking your property, or appears to be in danger of falling. Any large debris blocking roadways or sidewalks, or posing a threat to power lines and utilities must also be remediated for everyone’s safety. Falling limbs are unpredictable and sometimes unexpected. When a storm hits, we recommend inspecting your trees from a safe distance. If there is obvious damage, or if you suspect damage may have occurred, don’t hesitate to call us! Our tree care pros will assess your property and recommend the best course of action.

Preventative Care: Removing Dead or Broken Limbs
Being proactive with your tree care can make a huge difference! Regular tree trimming and professional tree care means less compromised branches that could become dangerous when storms hit. Healthy and strong trees are more resilient and less likely to sustain damage. Tree Services Erie PA offers ongoing tree trimming services at affordable rates. This is the best way to protect your property and hopefully avoid tree emergencies altogether.
If you know you have a tree that may be at risk of falling onto your house during a storm, or if damage has already occurred, it’s important to use caution and be aware of your surroundings. You may need to go into the basement or another part of your home to avoid a tree that could fall. If a tree or limb has fallen onto a power line, ALWAYS assume that the power is still live, and steer clear. Under certain conditions, broken power lines can send power through the ground and cause electrocution if you get too close. If you’re in the house or car when a tree falls on a power line, stay inside and wait until help arrives. We never recommend trying to move a fallen tree or limb by yourself, or attempting to break off a cracked limb. When the structural integrity of a tree is compromised by storm damage, it’s hard to know the extent of the damage, and further breakage can be very unpredictable. Our crews are equipped with the proper knowledge and tools to remove damaged trees safely and quickly, so don’t hesitate to call for help!
