The harsh winter freeze of 2021 here in the Abilene area has left a lasting impact on trees and shrubs. While the visible signs of damage may have lessened as trees filled out with leaves over the summer, the effects of that freeze on trees could still be lingering, posing potential hazards to your property. It’s crucial for you to inspect your trees and have dead trees and damaged branches promptly removed to ensure safety and maintain a healthy, vibrant landscape.
The Aftermath of the Big Freeze
The winter freeze of 2021 brought record-low temperatures and unusual weather patterns across Texas and the Abilene area was not immune, causing significant stress and damage to trees. The freezing temperatures and icy conditions led to the weakening and even death of numerous trees and branches.
Why It’s Important to Remove Dead Trees and Branches
- Safety First
Dead trees and branches are a safety hazard. They can fall unexpectedly, endangering people, pets, structures, and other plants in their vicinity. As time passes, dead wood becomes brittle and prone to breaking, making it even more critical to remove them before they cause harm.
- Protect Your Property
A fallen tree or branch can cause severe damage to your home, vehicles, fences, and other valuable assets. Removing dead trees and branches can prevent costly repairs and insurance claims, saving you both money and stress in the long run.
- Promote Overall Tree Health
Dead trees and branches are not only unsightly but also detrimental to the health of your landscape. They can attract pests and diseases that can spread to healthy trees nearby. Removing dead wood allows the remaining trees to flourish, promoting a robust landscape.
