St. Charles Hills subdivision, St. Charles, MO
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.
