Before all of the leaves fall, have a look at your trees and make sure they’re still healthy.
A dead branch covered in snow can easily snap, and could potentially cause thousands of dollars worth of
damage if it strikes a roof, a porch, or siding. Sometimes you really won’t notice if a tree is dying,
especially if you have a lot of trees.
If there are branches up against your house, it’s a good idea to trim them away before winter so you
don’t have ice-coated branches against your siding or windows. Before the first snow, have a reputable
tree service, landscape contractor, or arborist remove any dead or ailing limbs.
