Experts: Tree pruning can help prevent damage during storms
Tree limbs brought down by recent summer storms have been the cause of lot of damage and power outages across the Garden State.
Tree experts say that there are some ways homeowners can prevent major damage from happening on their property during a severe storm.
"We've seen a lot of trees on top of cars...those branches on top of the roof of the houses from trees that have not been maintained," says Maurcio Fallas, owner of Amazing Tree Services.
Fallas says that preventative tree pruning can help prevent a disaster. He says his company helps homeowners remove tree limbs that are hanging over houses and power lines. He says that he also helps make trees stronger.
Experts also say that homeowners should make sure any trees on their property are assessed every two to three years to determine if they are healthy or in danger of falling down.
