What maintaining your property’s trees and your Los Angeles, CA homeowners insurance does for your home’s protection.
Whether a little sapling or a towering, decades-old beauty, you probably love the trees on your property. They add color, visual interest, and life to your property, offering your home shade and protection from driving winds.
The problem, though, is that without proper maintenance, your trees can cause some pretty serious property damage.
To help you stay up on your tree maintenance, here are three signs that could indicate your tree is posing a danger to your property.
- Cracks: If you notice cracking in a branch, prune that branch from your tree. If you can’t safely remove it, have a professional come handle the situation or you could have serious damage come from the limb when it falls. If you see cracks in the trunk, consult an arborist to determine if you tree is dying.
- Limb Positioning: Do you have branches that are near a power line or hanging over the roof of your house? While they may not look dangerous on a clear day, in the face of a storm they can crack or bend and cause major damage. Remove any limbs that overhang your home or are near power lines.
- Trunk Trouble: If you notice that your tree’s trunk looks like it has begun hollowing out, is decaying, or has mushrooms growing from it, have an arborist come look at your tree. These are all signs its health could be compromised.
