It's the day after Thanksgiving and what an eventful Turkey Day it was! I
hope everyone weathered the storm well. I know some trees that didn't!
There are a number of trees that don't fair good with winter storms. One is
Norway Maple (Acer platanoides) This invasive tree has very weak limbs.
Most of the trees that came down in hurricane that came through Eastport
were Norway Maples. If they continue to be a nuisance, think about having
them cut down. Get rid of the saplings before they become too big to
Another tree is Birches (Betula spp.) These often bend over due to heavy
Another problem that causes tree damage in a storm is improper pruning.
Improper pruning creates weak crotches and limbs that can't stand the snow
load. I know you hear it from me all the time, but get your trees healthy
by pruning correctly!
