Tips For Dealing With Storm Season

Storm Damage Tree Cleanup

Storm damages are on the rise in recent years for both homes and trees. As professional arborists, storm damage tree cleanup is something commonly deal with, we have a Storm and Emergency Response team set up to deal with tree storm damage quickly. We deal with everything from flooding to tree uprooting. By simply planning for precautions, you can protect yourself, your home and your trees.

We have compiled a basic five items checklist to help you get through any mess in the event of a storm.

1. Make Sure Your Insurance Policy Covers Storm Damage

If your existing home insurance policy does not include storm coverage, check with your insurance provider. A standard damage insurance policy will not cover storm damage, we consider choosing a policy that expressly covers storms and their impacts – a must.

2. Assess The Potential For Tree Damage In Your Yard

Inspect your trees for any potential damage regularly, regardless of storms or not. Branches that are too close to power wires or other structures should be pruned. If you haven’t had a check for a while – before the storm hits, hire us to come to your property to trim any branches and make a detailed assessment of the potential damage that a storm could cause.

3. Keep Outdoor Objects Safe

During a storm, any high winds have the potential to blow things around, even away. Take some time to secure any items that could be blown around, place small items in a safe area, larger items can be pegged – anchored in place.

4. Keep Gutters Clear

If you allow your gutters to become clogged, water will accumulate on the roof over time and leak into your home’s walls. This could result in leaks damaging internal and external walls. Regularly have your gutters created of leaves and other debris, make sure your drainage system is capable of removing water quickly.

5. Prepare An Emergency Kit

Storm damage can lead to long-term power outages, roads may become impassable, and you may need to evacuate your home on short notice. Obviously, this will make it difficult to go out and buy what you need—taking time to create an emergency kit that includes the bare essentials such as food, medicine, and emergency lights.

The trees on properties not only add some visual appeal, but they can also increase the value of properties. Regular tree pruning & maintenance will ensure that your trees remain healthy, book our professional, trained, licensed arborists. We have compiled a list of some of the benefits.

THE THOMASES, CASHMERE

We would like to thank the team of Affordable Tree Service for the work done on our property on Tuesday. We had obtained a number of quotes and your quote was more affordable than the other companies.

We had garden beds directly below the large trees and over the past few years these gardens had established themselves and were looking really good. We were putting off having the trees lopped for fear that the gardens would be ruined. When the team arrived I was assured that these gardens would not be damaged, looking at these huge trees I remained a bit skeptical. I was amazed how quickly and professionally these huge trees were lopped by the team, I was also astounded to see on completion of their hard work that the gardens remained unharmed and the property was left clean.

All we can say is thank you, thank you, for your professional service given by all, I would definitely use your company again and recommend you to all friends and acquaintances.

Kind regards,

MS LOMBARDI, ASPLEY

I wish to commend you on your staff and the service they provide. Earlier this year I had the pleasure of dealing with your firm. My initial contact was very pleasant. The woman who came to give the quote (which was true to your name – very affordable) was prompt, knowledgeable and friendly.

On the day that the trees were to be chopped down your employees arrived right on time, which I truly appreciated, as I have had many experiences when trades persons have not kept to their schedules. The fellows performed the job with the minimum of fuss and acted in a very professional manner. I appreciated that they also chopped down a branch from a tree, which was not part of the original quote, without any fuss. They left my yard so clean, that apart from the missing trees, you could not tell that they had been around.

I wish to compliment you and your employees on a job well done, I have no hesitation in recommending your company to any of my friends.

T. DISBROUGH, HENDRA

I would like to bring to your attention the fact that you are running a terrific service. The gentlemen who performed some branch cutting at my property yesterday were exceptional. They were polite and performed the work requested to a better level than expected. They really are a credit to your company. Please pass on my thanks to them for an exceptional job.

Congratulations on running such a wonderful business/service.

P.S. I was surprised your company put so much effort to leave the property tidy!!

CJ MACDONALD, GORDON PARK

I would like to thank you for the excellent job that was done!

I had been meaning to get those trees removed for some time but had been putting off for fear of the damage that would be done to the garden surrounding these trees. Having read your advertisement in the North West News which stated “Jobs always done Safely and Efficiently and gardens left Clean, Tidy and Undamaged”, I decided to risk it.

I was delighted with the result and am pleased that I selected your business. You lived up to your advertisement.

Please pass on my thanks to the workmen concerned, as they were working in an area confined by garden, fencing and a deck. They did an excellent job and did not damage any of the plants, fencing or deck.

I would have no hesitation in recommending your business to anyone and will be using you again in the future.
