Hurricane Proofing Trees & When It Needs to Be Done

Hurricane Proofing Trees & When It Needs to Be Done

During a hurricane, it’s very easy for trees to be damaged or even lost due to extremely high, intense cyclonic winds. A hurricane’s strong winds and heavy rains can cause many problems for a tree, especially ones with poor branch structure, weak root system, and overgrown limbs.

In our area of Florida, it’s important to take the necessary steps to hurricane-proof your trees to minimize damage and help save your trees. Here is how to hurricane proof your trees and when it needs to be done in Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Lee County, and the surrounding areas.


Protect Your Trees’ Root Systems

Your trees’ roots aren’t just a means of transferring nutrients and food to the core of your tree; they are critical to the overall stability and strength of the tree. The root system is like an anchor for your trees, securely holding it down during high winds. Laying mulch around your tree roots helps preserve nutrients and water in the soil while protecting the roots from damage. Roots are susceptible to damage from mowing, foot traffic, and daily wear and tear of weather and other elements. You should keep a layer of mulch around the base of your trees year-round, and periodically replace the mulch with a fresh batch.

Why Trees Need to Be Trimmed

Much like your lawn and landscape, trees require routine maintenance to keep them healthy and looking nice on your property. Regularly trimming trees ensures they are healthy, eliminates safety hazards, and increases the curb appeal and value of your home.

Trimming Your Trees Keeps Them Healthy

Keeping your trees trimmed is vital to their health and structural support. Proper trimming improves the health of your trees by eliminating branches that are dead or dying. These branches compete with healthier branches and steal necessary nutrition from the rest of your tree. Rather than feeding only the lively, healthy parts of your tree, nutrients such as fertilizer, water, food, and light are being split amongst the healthy and dead branches. Trimming these branches off your tree will increase the amount of nutrients and food your healthy branches get and cut down on waste.

Trimming also improves the overall structure and support of your trees, keeping it from developing broad or weak branches. Trimming your tree prevents limbs from growing weak crotches and crossing over each other and causing wounds in the bark. When branches grow out of hand and cross over each other, they compete for space and light in the crown. Trimming your trees will increase sun exposure and air circulation throughout the tree and underlying landscape,...
