Over the years, Mountain West Arbor Care has seen plenty of tree and property damage throughout the Pacific Northwest that could have been prevented. While wind can easily pass through dormant trees during the winter, the added weight of new growth during the spring and summer months can cause the tops of your trees to act like sails during high wind storms.

Windsail reduction is a preventative tree care service that works to reduce wind resistance in a tree’s canopy. By selectively removing branches, a certified arborist can reduce a windsail effect by increasing wind penetration and passage throughout the crown of a tree. This, in turn, will make a tree less likely to bend or fail during heavy wind storms.

Trees are more likely to survive a windstorm if they are properly pruned and well maintained. Therefore, it’s important to be proactive and take the necessary steps to prevent wind and storm damage before it occurs. Doing so will reduce the risk of damage to your home and property while saving yourself a great hassle and expensive repairs in the long run.

At Mountain West Arbor Care, our certified arborist understands the principles of tree pruning and windsail reduction that lead to strong, wind-resistant trees. We offer a variety of preventative tree care services that can reduce the number of potential threats that can make your trees unpredictable.
