Should Trees with Storm Damage be Removed?

Crane removal of Hickory tree that had storm damage and was starting to uproot.

Whether a tree with storm damage should be removed or not depends on the extent and severity of the damage. Today we removed this Hickory tree in New Hartford, CT that incurred storm damage and was starting to uproot.

If a tree has suffered significant damage, such as having large limbs broken or split, the trunk or main branches split, or the roots compromised, it may be best to remove the tree. A severely damaged tree may be hazardous and pose a safety risk to people or property if it were to fall or drop branches.

On the other hand, if the damage is minimal, such as a few small branches broken or stripped of leaves, the tree may be able to recover and continue to thrive. It’s important to have a professional arborist or tree specialist assess the damage and recommend the best course of action.

In any case, safety should always be the top priority when dealing with storm-damaged trees. If you have any concerns about a tree on your property after a storm, it’s best to consult with an expert to assess the damage and determine the best course of action.
