Safety advice

When trees or branches are damaged or have fallen, it places enormous stress on the rest of the tree. When the tree or branch is moved or cut, the remaining wood can react violently and unexpectedly to the change in forces acting on it. Fallen trees can roll (crushing anyone standing nearby), branches can spring back or sideways (hitting anything nearby), and additional pieces can drop (hitting whatever is below).

Dealing with damaged trees is definitely not a DIY job. It requires specialized equipment, including safety equipment, and extensive skills and training to do it efficiently, properly and safely.

Nearly every month we hear about a homeowner who has been killed trying to remove a storm-damaged tree. Please don't let that happen to you. Leave it to the tree service pros!

Call Us Today

Tree emergencies should usually be dealt with as quickly as possible to avoid further damage to nearby buildings and reduce safety risks.

For that reason, we ask you to give us a call if you find yourself in need of emergency tree service, rather than using our online contact form. 

That way, we'll be able to get all the necessary details from you and answer your questions more quickly.

What to Expect

During business hours, there's always someone to answer the phone. However, when extreme weather causes extensive tree damage throughout the area, we're often swamped with phone calls and may ask you to leave a message.

Our arborists will assess the situation with your tree and determine the best way to fix the problem. They'll provide a detailed quote for the work.

Depending on the situation, trucks and heavy equipment may need to access your property. If there are other trees down in the area and blocking roads, there may be a delay in reaching your property.

We take great care to have as little impact on the surrounding area as possible while safely addressing your tree emergency. Experienced safety professionals will be on site to ensure staff follow the highest safety standards.

Storm Damage FAQs

When your trees, property, or home are damaged due to a storm or high winds, it can be quite a shock. While the only question running through your mind might be “how do I get this repaired as quickly as possible?”, eventually you might have other questions. We answer many of those questions below.

Call us for emergency tree service at any time, 24/7.

As soon as possible. Once the adverse weather has passed and you have ensured that everyone is safe, call an arborist to assess the situation. Time is of the essence, as storm-damaged trees are often unstable and can cause additional damage if not dealt with by a professional quickly.

Dangerous situations abound with storm-damaged trees, so please keep a safe distance when surveying the damage.

Sometimes a fallen or broken tree may not seem dangerous, but there are certain things that make the situation more precarious, including:

  • Broken branches (some may be hidden from view)
  • Branches that have broken off but are wedged in the tree
  • Any level of tree decay that can make the tree unstable
  • Loose ground or heaving soil around the tree roots
  • Slight lean to the tree
  • Cracks or breaks in the tree

If you notice any of these signs on your tree after a storm, contact Rayzor’s Edge as soon as possible.

No. Do not attempt to move or remove trees or branches yourself. They can be very unstable and dangerous for anyone nearby. We have the skills, knowledge, and equipment to quickly and safely remove the danger.

Using a crane for storm damage clean-up is often faster and safer than other options. A crane can help us reach otherwise inaccessible areas and remove trees from wherever they have fallen.

Learn more about tree removal with a crane 

We often utilize crane-mounted grapple saws, which are even more time-efficient and safe than regular cranes. They are run remotely and allow us to efficiently dismantle any tree within reach.

While not all damage can be avoided, it can be lessened. Contact Rayzor’s Edge Tree Service to learn about tree inspections that can identify:

  • any weak spots in your tree,
  • tree decay
  • dead limbs,
  • or other matters of concern.

We can also help by

  • pruning out any dead branches,
  • cabling any weak limbs,
  • treating for pests or diseases that can weaken trees,
  • or any other tree maintenance that may be required.

Wet snow and ice are much heavier than you may think. Both can cause branches to break, sections of a tree to fall, or even an entire tree to come crashing down.

If the snow or ice storm happens late in the season, when trees and shrubs are starting to bud or flower, the cold can kill the buds. It’s unlikely to kill the tree but there probably won’t be many flowers (or fruit) that year.

Stay well away from the tree and call the tree care professionals at Rayzor’s Edge Tree Service for an inspection. Depending on the severity of the damage, you may not need to do anything right away. In other cases, dangerous branches will need to be removed quickly.

Some damage may not be noticeable until the spring, when leaves began to appear and sections of your tree turn out to be broken, damaged, or dead. When that happens, contact us for a professional tree pruning.

What to do with a fallen or severely damaged tree depends on the situation. Here are some general guidelines:

  • If the tree or sections of the tree are blocking a roadway, call your local municipal services.
  • If the tree is touching or has brought down utility lines, call your utility company. Never go near a tree that is touching power lines!
  • If your tree or large branches have fallen on your driveway (so you can’t get out) or on a building, call us for emergency tree removal.
  • If sections of a tree have fallen in your yard, or if there are broken branches that don’t appear to be in danger of falling or causing any further damage, schedule a professional tree consultation.
  • Do NOT try to cut or remove ice-covered branches yourself, especially with a chainsaw. It’s easy to be injured by a chainsaw slipping on the ice or a branch under load reacting forcefully and unexpectedly when cut.

It depends. It’s best to schedule an inspection with a tree service professional who can assess the damage to your tree. In some cases, the damage may be too extensive and the tree will need to be removed. In other cases, structural pruning, cabling or bracing, or extra care and attention may do the trick.

I am completely satisfied with the service that was provided. The tree was in bad shape and a difficult place in the yard with limited access. They took care of the tree safely, efficiently, and professionally.

I’m so impressed! Our tree fell onto our house and they were out in a flash. So grateful they were able to come out in such a timely manner and take care of the situation especially during a wind storm where they were extremely busy. Thank you Ray and staff!
