As a home owner one of your main concerns is usually the safety of your house from damage. One of the most common risks that go unnoticed to home owners is the presence of tall trees, trees with long stalks or rotting trees on or near to their homes.
We are very blessed here in Barbados not to be affected by many serious storm systems carrying strong winds, however you never know when we may be faced with a serious storm, so it always pays to be prepared. Broken tree limbs can destroy roofs and windows as well as disrupt the electric and phone services of your neighbourhood. Will you be prepared and protected the next time high winds blow?
If you have neighbours with unkempt trees, it may pay to give a little positive peer pressure to get them trimmed.
