Trim Your Trees!

In January 2007 an ice storm hit St. Charles and deposited enough ice on many trees to make their long untrimmed brances snap, and to cause damage to homes, power lines, and other structures. A number of the falling branchs fell on power lines, causing a power outage in the entire subdivision for 3 and a half days! Almost all of this damage was completely preventable!

Homeowners must trim their trees so that the trees can withstand the weight of ice and the force of the wind, and not break. Sure, there is a cost involved, but the costs of the damage are far greater, for you and for your neighbor. Be a good neighbor. Trim your trees.

A nicely trimmed tree can withstand almost
any amount of ice without breaking.

Untrimmed trees however can cause damage and
can be dangerous to anything underneath them.
