Why do trees fall down?
On a rainy, windy day you may find yourself wondering “Why do trees fall down?”
While most trees won’t fall over, there are two common reasons why the rare tree will topple:
1. Soggy soil. In an area with poor drainage, strong winds, and frequent heavy rain, the soil can become waterlogged.
2. Root damage. Over time, roots can get damaged from construction, restricted by the installation of driveways, sidewalks, and roads, and compacted. The combination of routine wear-and-tear and human-caused damage can lead to a weak root system that will pull out of the ground in high winds.
If your tree shows signs of damage or has dead or dying limbs, it could be at risk of falling once heavy snow falls begin to accumulate. Have your tree checked or contact Woodchuck Tree Service today for premier trimming, pruning, and removal.
