Westport, CT - Caution, Falling Trees

{EAV_BLOG_VER:c5902e4f9d316056}

Adding to the charm of Westport. CT are the stately trees that line our roads and grace our yards.  Along with the beauty of wooded properties, however, comes the potential disruption and danger caused by falling trees.  The most common occurrences happen during major storms, when fallen limbs routinely cause power outages.  Three times, early this summer, trees fell on motorists on the Merritt Parkway, in Stamford, Westport and Fairfield, in one instance resulting in a fatality.

Damaged Tree


Of course, trees can also fall on fair weather days, especially if they are diseased or damaged.  So, we were less than thrilled to notice a tall tree, in our front  yard, leaning at a precipitous angle.  On further inspection, we found that the trunk of the tree was split open.

On the one hand, we hoped that mother nature would take care of it, during the next storm, with the surrounding trees cradling it and breaking its fall. but, there were too many ifs in that scenario.  So, it was time to call in the tree service. 

In the bucket

 

  The first step was a ride, up in the bucket, to trim the extra branches.
