Trim Those Trees!

By
Real Estate Agent with Realtor DRE# 3163817

It's hard to believe while looking outside a window in sunny South Florida that it is hurricane season. But the truth of the matter is, a hurricane can sneak up in a day! The city of Coral Springs urges tree owners to prune and cut back any loose branches and discard right away. Believe it or not, a tree limb can be a dangerous object when caught up in the winds of a hurricane.

Have your regular landscaper come out and evaluate your landscaping to see if there are any trees that need pruning or cut down all together. A falling tree can cause serious damage to your home or you and anybody else that might be in this harms way. Have your contracter take the debri off your property but please know you may need a permit for this.

Good advice...any branches overhanging roofs should also be trimmed to extend the life of the roof.

Thanks Terry for your insight and reminder. In doing so the property will always be looking manicured and appealing. At least during the summer months.

It should be a summer "To do" item every year here in Florida.   Better ready and safe than to have a tree branch through windows on on your house WHEN the next hurricane hits!

Terri- good information.  Those branches are flying missiles and at some point our municipalities will not be able to pick them up!

Terri, this is a good reminder for people in other parts of the country as well.  In Dallas we have severe storms with high winds.  Pruning tree limbs is essential.

Great thoughts. All branches overhanging or touching the roof should be trimmed to extend the life of the roof and in many places to meet cod.

Excellent advice Terri. Better safe than sorry. You'll be glad you trimmed those trees when the winds start to pick up!

Terri,

Great advice. Preparation is key. Trim the branches and trees for safety and at the same time allowing more sunshine in.

Terri-With the high winds of a hurricane I can see how loose branches become unguided missiles causing lots of damage.
