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 or uprooted. Strong winds alone can break off large branches allowing them to fall on your house or shed forcing costly repairs. Branches which overhang property will contribute to the clogging of gutters with leaves and in a heavy storm this could create overflowing and possible flooding in or around the home. A professional thinning of vegetation and removal of deadwood or overhanging trees can reduce these risks.
