Title: Trees aid in flood prevention

By: A. Pasma, 2012-11-07 10:56:13

With the recent events of Superstorm Sandy, its hard not to notice all of the damage fallen trees have left. However, studies have shown that trees aid in flood prevention both in forests and in an urban setting. The tree roots help push the soil grains apart, which creates pore spaces into which the water can flow. They also create an obstruction for the water as it flows across the surface. This obstruction helps to slow the flow of the water down, allowing for more time to soak into the ground. Leaves of a tree play a part as well, decreasing the force at which the rain water hits the ground, causing less erosion in the process. Many U.S cities, including New Orleans, are now looking to re-establish green space in some of their most environmentally sensitive areas. Re-foresting not only adds to the protection against changing climates, but increases air quality, and provides an excellent place for outdoor recreation.

Title: Oakville Parks and Forests

The Town of Oakville is shutting down a few of the woodlots over the next couple weeks, in order to clean up the trees. There are many Ash trees that will need to be removed due to the Emerald Ash Borer. These trees are either dead, or dying and can become a hazard. For more information, please check out the article below. http://www.insidehalton.com/community/oakvillebeaver/article/1530308

While we ended up being quite lucky in comparison to the USA, we still suffered some storm damage due to Hurricane Sandy. Attached, is a picture of one of the many emergency tree removals we were called in to clean up. Just a reminder, if you notice you have a tree on your property with a crack down the truck, or what looks like weak limbs, give us a call. It's better to be prepared.

Title: High Winds and Rain

By: A. Pasma, 2012-10-29 12:22:19

Hi Everyone, As we all know, we are expected to get high winds and a large amount of rain this evening and into the night. It is the perfect recipe for weak rooted trees to fall. Please contact us immediately if you have a fallen tree. Do not try to manage it yourself, as it could be highly dangerous if the tree has fallen onto a house, fence or other obstruction. You can reach us via email, at info@treework.ca or Call or text 905.208.2635
