NC Trees and Storms: Readiness, Response, Recovery

Page Title

Trees provide many benefits such as shade, reduced utility costs and improved water and air quality. To provide those benefits safely, trees require proper maintenance and good care. A healthy, well-maintained tree is better able to withstand weather events like ice storms, hurricanes, or strong winds that can cause some tree parts, or entire trees, to fail. Tree damage and tree failures can cause property damage, but the possibility can be managed through planning and proper maintenance before the storm. Knowing how to assess and manage storm-damaged trees can help retain or even regain the many benefits trees provide.
