When high winds arise, weak trees become a threat to people and property.
Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) February 29, 2012
Hurricane-force winds experienced recently along the Colorado Front Range have damaged roofs and kept Swingle Lawn, Tree and Landscape Care tree cutting and removal crews very busy.
“Property owners must be cognizant of the trees on their property, said Tom Tolkacz, Swingle CEO. They are responsible for them. "Often," Tolkacz continued, "property owners don't realize trees are weak. Not all weaknesses are evident. When high winds arise, weak trees become a threat to people and property." Tolkacz advised that the appearance of squirrels and woodpeckers were evidence of hollows in the tree. "The best course of action," he said, "is to keep your trees trimmed and have them inspected regularly by a professional."
Boulder and the northwestern Denver suburbs have suffered the most damage, with many homes losing power for extended periods due to downed power lines. Winds of over 20 MPH are expected to continue along the Colorado Front Range through Wednesday night.
