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.
