We all know what comes along with winter…falling temperatures, higher heating bills, snow and ice. In Minnesota, preparing for winter is crucial and it can ensure that you get through the season safely and comfortably. Experts recommend that you spend time in the fall having your heating system, roof, doors and windows checked so that once winter sets in, you will be able to stay warm. Another very important step for getting ready for winter is getting your yard ready by inspecting gutters, removing debris from under porches and stairs and surveying your property for any vulnerable trees that could be brought down by high winds and heavy snow.
Protecting Your Home From Falling Trees
Each year there are countless insurance claims by homeowners in our area that have damage to their home as a result of a fallen tree during a winter storm. Heavy and ice and snow can really weigh a tree down and if it is not strong enough, it can come down easily during a Minnesota winter. You can prevent this potential problem by having a professional tree care service come to your property in the fall and take a look at each of your trees. This is particularly important for older and larger trees on your property or ones that you have noticed have lost limbs recently or have noticeable cracks. It is wise to have a professional tree service take a look at the trees on your property as they will be able to determine for sure whether a particular tree is showing signs of distress, weakness and they will know how to even project how the tree may fall during a storm, should it be hit.
