Protecting Your Trees Against Snow and IceJanuary 11, 2024
We may be biased, but we are proud to say that the beautiful state of Maryland is like no other place in the country. Spring is warm and renewing, while summer is hot and often humid. Fall in the Mid-Atlantic States is characterized by the vibrant foliage and crisp air, while winter brings incredibly low temperatures, snow, and ice. Winter presents a number of challenges where your landscape is concerned. The winter season can bring storms and subsequent tree damage. At Columbia Tree & Lawn Service, we’re here to help with all your tree care needs – no matter when those needs arise! Our 24/7 landscapers and tree experts are at your service, prioritizing your safety above all else.
The winter landscape in Maryland is a sight to behold – but your trees might have a differing opinion on the matter. Heavy snowfall and icy conditions pose a significant threat to your trees – especially if they were not properly pruned before the start of the winter season. Emergency tree services can prove essential during the colder months because heavy, overburdened branches can snap without warning. Our emergency tree service & landscaping team can assess the snow load on your trees, identify vulnerable branches, enhance safety with our helpful advice and assistance, and prune as needed to relieve stress and prevent limb breakage.
When trees are encased in a layer of ice or weighed down by thick layers of heavy snow, a number of hazards are involved. It can be dangerous to walk, stand, or park beneath any part of the tree. We are well-equipped to handle emergency situations of all kinds, whether you’re taking immediate preventative measures or you’re concerned about damage that has already begun to occur. We’ll remove any broken branches, trim the tree to prevent further damage, and put measures in place to safeguard your tree, your property, and your family against future risks. We are on standby at all times, and we promise a swift response to any urgent situation that might arise.
While winter is known to be particularly hard on trees, it is certainly not the only season during which you might need emergency landscaping or tree services. Proper, routinely scheduled inspections and pruning by our expert tree service and landscaping team is the best way to prevent tree-related emergencies. Our professional arborists will prune your trees to encourage healthy growth, remove deadwood, and improve aesthetics with careful shaping. However, Mother Nature can strike in the form of a damaging thunderstorm, pests can wreak havoc on your trees, and other accidents can occur that might cause damage to your landscaping. Simply keep our phone number handy and give us a call if you need our help in times of emergency. We are always happy to help alleviate stress and improve safety for our customers in Laurel, Clarksville, Columbia, Ellicott City, Elkridge, and all surrounding areas.
