Periodically it becomes necessary to trim your trees. In spring and summer months when there is significant rainfall trees grow rather quickly causing an overgrowth. You will notice during these periods that tree limbs may hang low and touch the roof. It’s at this point when storms and strong winds occur that your overgrown trees are susceptible to limb damage or breakage.
