Clean Up Damaged Trees

With high winds and heavy rains or snows come downed trees, one of the most dangerous and damaging outcomes of a powerful storm.

First figure out how bad the situation is by following the advice in Assessing Tree Damage. If you find you'll need to remove a tree, call in a certified arborist to do any major removal; taking down trees is a scary job that can cause terrible injury if not done right, as is clear in How to Take Down a Dangerous Tree.

Smaller ornamental trees and foundation plantings may just need some cleanup to broken branches. Learn the best methods for How to Prune Small Trees and Shrubs.
