Below are photos of just a few of the downed trees we’ve encountered in the aftermath of last Friday’s wind storm. We’re dealing with damage at virtually all our properties, including the Dulles Toll Road where hazardous tree removal is a huge part of our job. The pictures below were taken in homeowners association communities, where tree damage is a growing problem. As trees growing near homes, walking paths, and recreational areas get bigger, so does the danger they pose. Blake Landscapes recommends hazardous tree assessments for all HOA’s as well as for commercial properties and any public area. If you choose to get such an assessment done in preparation for the next big weather event, make sure the individual doing the assessment is an ISA Certified Arborist. Feel free to contact us for more information.
