After a typhoon, hurricane and other natural disaster, we realize that the extent of the damage and the casualties brought about by the natural disaster is partly attributable to our lack of the necessary preparations. I was once an advocate of disaster preparedness programs that seeks to inform the community of the practical ways to do before and after nature castigates a place.
There are so many ways to prepare for an upcoming typhoon. Way before its landing, news reports would flood the news on TV or on the radio. Warnings are issued and steps to prepare outlined by the proper government authorities. One of the constant reminders would be to cut the tall trees within your vicinity. Some people would take that big tree in the yard among the things to consider as part of the disaster preparation plans. However, others just take it for granted. I noticed that those shallow-rooted trees in the park and other public areas are overlooked even in the disaster and risk management plans of some communities.
Even the big old trees in your front or backyard may get toppled down by the strong winds. The shallow-rooted trees that failed to anchor on solid ground would definitely fall down. Thus, preemptive measures should be done before a big typhoon. In public roads, park or village, one should consider pruning trees to avoid causing damage to people, parked cars and utility cables.
Almost every year, a big typhoon would ravage a certain country or region on the Earth’s surface. Therefore it is important to prepare the trees that surround you by providing support when typhoon comes. Felled trees could add to the damage that typhoon brings. It could damage cars, cause injuries to people and crash on electrical power lines causing power interruptions in various places. If you think you need help with your tree, you may seek the help of tree clearing services and don’t take chances otherwise, you might have to call them to clear off trees that felled after damaging a great deal of your property. I bet you won’t let that happen. Will you?
