The Dangers of Winter Wind

Winter comes with all sorts of wonderful opportunities for activities like snowboarding, skiing, sledding, and snowshoeing, offering wholesome fun to families all across Medford, Oregon. Unfortunately, winter also comes with more than a few challenges to homeowners. And while most residents are prepared to deal with the usual hazards of snow and ice, not all are prepared for another big winter threat: the wind.

At first, wind may not seem like much of a threat. However, at high enough speeds, wind can be powerful enough to tear off elements of your home, such as segments of siding, gutters, and shingles from your roof. At high enough speeds, wind can actually carry large branches or even entire trees and bring them crashing down onto your home, causing significant amounts of damage. This is especially perilous in the winter when insulation and protection from the outside elements are so crucial to your health and safety.

While there is, unfortunately, no way to keep winter windstorms from occurring, there are other ways that you can prevent subsequent damage from taking place. At Quality Tree Service, we have experienced arborists capable of diagnosing the trees on your property, determining if any are diseased or dying, which makes them more likely to be uprooted in a storm. In some cases, even the mere proximity and placement of a tree could be hazardous to your home. Upon identifying any problem trees, we can then take care of removing them for you, mitigating the risks of damage in a windstorm.

Not only can our team assist in preventing such problems, but we can also actually help in the aftermath of storm damage as well. If your home has been struck by a fallen tree or limb, it must be removed before other service teams can work on repairs. We are prepared to handle such emergency situations and can be reached 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist with the immediate removal of tree debris.

Whether you’re looking to better prepare for the winter or need emergency assistance, you can contact us via telephone at 541-821-8594 or with our online contact form. Regardless of the issue, our team is standing by, ready to help.
