You can take preventive measures to protect your home and property from falling trees.
You may want to take these steps to prevent storms from uprooting shrubs and trees which can cause a great deal of damage to your house:
Diseased or dead trees are less resistant to storms. If you suspect you have this issue have a qualified arborist inspect your trees or shrubs as they may need to be removed.
Branches hanging over power lines are not only a safety hazard but can cause damage to your house. You local power utility will usually clear over hanging branches at no charge.
Inspect your trees at the base of the trunk for fungus and mold which will also reduce the trees resistance to storms.
Several times a year check shrubs and trees for dead wood, rotted areas, and cracks.
