Thread: Look For Potential Hazards On Your Property.

    Default Look For Potential Hazards On Your Property.

    Hello,

    We spent a good part of the day with no power. Clear, calm skies – and then without warning….

    Thankfully nobody was hurt. This tree was very large, and limbs coming off of it have caused downed power lines at least twice in recent years. I know that my wife and I, along with others have commented over the years that they really need to take the tree down. Today the owner said – I knew this was coming down sooner or later. I guess I just gave him a blank stare.

    It should serve as a reminder to us all to take a look at potential hazards around our property and take care of them. This could have been much worse. One of the residents said they were about five minutes away from going for a drive.

    thanks

    Trees can be very dangerous. A good wind can cause damage even if the tree looks healthy.
