Central Indiana has been subject to insect infestations (ex: the Emerald Ash Borer), high winds and extreme weather conditions. All of these factors can cause otherwise strong, mature trees to weaken.
Regular inspections can help you spot a tree problem early, before it becomes a safety hazard. Spring is a great time to inspect mature trees. Leaf canopies are not completely filled in and you can get a good look at the tree structure. IPL encourages property owners to inspect trees following major storms as well.
By inspecting trees and addressing potential problems, you can protect your home, save lives, and reduce lengthy power outages for your neighborhood.
IPL is offering these tips to provide helpful information for our customers. If you have a question about trees on your property, please consult a certified arborist for professional advice.
