What Should You Do If a Tree Falls On Your Property?

Fallen Tree

Coming home to a fallen tree can be scary for homeowners but there are a few basic steps to take immediately.

Storms have been a regular occurrence as of late and that can mean big damage to trees. There’s nothing more daunting than coming home to a downed tree on your property or even watching one be struck by lightning and then topple. The safest, best course of action is to call a professional tree care service, but there are a few steps to take. If you’re unsure of what to do once a tree falls on your property, take these steps first.

Be Safe

First, you will want to avoid using the area impacted at all costs so as to avoid someone getting hurt. You may even want to go so far as to block or rope the area off so as to prevent access. Until someone can get out there to remedy the situation, you don’t want anyone getting hurt. If there are damaged entrances to your home, you may want to block those off as well.

Look at Power Lines

From a safe place, take a look and see if you notice any damage to your power lines. Even any trees are laying against power lines, you may need to contact your local utility company. This ensures that your service will go undisrupted and can even help tree care professionals.

Call a Pro

Once you notice a fallen tree on your property, you should immediately seek professional help. By working with a professional service, you can ensure that further damage won’t occur to your property or home. They will be able to take advantage of the proper equipment and their experience to safely remove any hazards and keep your home safe. If there has been damage to your home, be sure to take photos of any damage and keep receipts of anything you purchase to handle that emergency situation. This information could be necessary when you file an insurance claim.
