This shows the high importance of preparing the trees on your property for such massive events. It is also extremely import to check trees that did not fall down to ensure that they are still structurally stable and not dangerous to people or property. There is something we call “residual failure” which refers to tree damages that have occurred during a storm, but have not yet fallen down. These can be extremely dangerous and require attention.
