Immediate Storm Aftermath—
Please remember the final wind effects of any storm may not arrive and pass until well after the first effects are felt. Please do not risk walking outside and under tree canopies until the storm is well over and streets have been safely cleared.
In the aftermath of any storm which requires the removal of damaged or threatening trees from a private yard, before engaging any tree removal contractor, please (1) ask for company contact information and confirm references, (2) ask for evidence of insurance, and (3) get several quotes from different companies. Please be wary of any “hard sale” or pressure techniques.
