Winter Tree Care Inventory

There are many factors that determine if a tree needs care after a hard winter. Outside of injury, the age of the tree is a deciding factor in whether to trim or remove the tree.

When looking at your trees, remember that these are simply guidelines. When you call a professional, they’ll need to make their own evaluation to be sure of what course of action to take.


Things To Look For:

  • Are there breaks, cracks or splits in the limbs?
  • Are more than 50% of your tree’s large limbs damaged in some way?
  • Any wounds can not only cause branches to fall and damage people or property, but also allow in pests and diseases which can weaken your tree further.


  • Is the top of the main trunk still intact?
  • Is any portion of the trunk cracked or split open? Cracks can be very fatal to a tree, as well as to you and your property.


  • Has the tree been uprooted, where roots are fully coming out of the ground?
  • Has the tree been shaken, so roots have disturbed the soil?
