The Dangers of Toppled Trees in Decatur
When people visit our beautiful city, they rave about all the big beautiful trees. They are indeed gorgeous, but they can also cause major damage to our Decatur homes. After a strong storm, we get many calls from homeowners dealing with toppled trees in their yards and homes.
Ground saturation is mostly to blame. A rainy Georgia summer can leave the ground extremely saturated. The roots of the trees are weakened and are not strong enough to support their massive weight, and wind gusts can cause them to come crashing down on homes and vehicles.
Homeowners should inspect their yards and remove any damaged or rotten trees to prevent property damage, but even perfectly healthy trees can be uprooted during a storm.
If a tree has fallen and damaged your property, call a restoration company with the experience, resources and skills to handle any size disaster. Call SERVPRO of Decatur rapid response crew at 404-378-9998.
