Whether it’s a thick blanket of wet white stuff in February or the squalls of summer, our trees and shrubs take a battering from Mother Nature. Inevitably, that leads to storm damage cleanup in the Kalamazoo, Michigan area, and our phones at American Arbor light up with worried residential and commercial owners calling about damage to their trees.
Weather often exposes problems that aren’t apparent to the untrained eye. Stressors such as heavy ice and snow, high winds, and prolonged frigid temperatures reveal apparent issues, like cracked tree limbs and broken branches. Extreme rainy periods leave soil saturated and shallow-rooted trees at risk of toppling.
But tree health is more than the obvious, and you don’t want to wait for a storm to expose the problems.

Why Storm Damage Cleanup is Important
As the Arbor Day Foundation notes, a homeowner or commercial business can sometimes assess the extent of tree damage on their own. Losing a couple of offsetting branches on opposite sides of the trunk won’t necessarily indicate a weakness. An otherwise healthy tree might survive loss and abuse, but not always.
Many property owners see evident concerns and assume they can correct them without the help of a professional. They cut off a cracked limb, but at a point where it stresses the tree further rather than saves it. A tree is topped unnecessarily, leaving its future growth stunted and uneven. Some could be saved with the right care but are instead removed.
Each Kalamazoo tree’s ability to recover from storm damage is unique. A young tree may fill in quickly from breakage and show no significant sign of injury. A single lost limb on an older tree may indicate other problems resulting in greater danger later.
That’s why customers call us. We take our time to thoroughly assess tree health and correctly prune it to restore growth when it’s possible.
