HURRICANE SEASON PREP
Hurricanes are a part of life here in Florida, and you should prepare your landscaping along with your home. Not all damage occurring during a storm is a result of high winds alone. Flying landscape debris and uprooted trees have the potential to cause damage to homes, vehicles, and pool cages. Storm preparedness can help you reduce the risks.
While there is no such thing as hurricane-proof landscaping, a little preparation can help minimize your risk. Our team can help create an open branch structure that allows wind to pass thru, preventing uprooting the tree - think screen door, not sailboat! And while a strong, deep rooted tree may survive a storm, dead branches and other heavy objects like coconuts may not. Bringing them down before storms hit helps you avoid risk.
Call Us today to learn more about how Modern Cuts can prep your trees for hurricane season.
Quick tip: Plan Ahead!
Don't wait until the last minute to trim your trees. Once a hurricane watch or warning is issued, curbside pickup may be halted, and all that dead wood you took to the curb could cause you more problems than it solves.
Modern Cuts has prep options that include removal of all debris. Call us today and have your trees professionally trimmed and cleaned away.
Hurricane Aftershock - watch out for dead trees
When you think aftershock, you may think "earthquake", but hurricanes can mean aftershocks, too. After the movement and trauma of a hurricane, some trees may still be standing, but with enough damage that eventually causes them to die.
In the weeks following a hurricane, keep an eye on your surviving landscape for signs of bad health. Dead branches and trees are an accident waiting to happen, but Modern Cuts team of professionals can help with cleanup and removal to get you back to normal.
