Trimming your trees prior to storm season is strongly recommended to ensure you remove potential hazards that could cause damage to your property or family once the storm season hits. Due to our climate, the Sunshine Coast can experience heavy rain and strong winds that combine to cause trees to be blown over. Fierce winds alone can break off large branches allowing them to fall on your assets. Overhanging branches contribute to clogging of gutters with leaves. A professional thinning of vegetation in late spring can reduce these risks.
