Emergency Tree Removal and Property Cleanup Services after Storm Damage
For the most part, mature trees are reasonably resilient in nature, able to withstand the types of weather extremes that befall Toronto from one year to the next. In fact, there are many area homeowners who simply expect the trees in and around their properties to be in their customary places every day, plus or minus their foliage depending on the particular season/time of the year.
Regrettably, there will be instances when these mature trees will surrender to the forces of Mother Nature, and homeowners may subsequently need to deal with the aftermaths of severe and destructive summer or winter storms. When such tempests have passed, people may awaken and/or look out their windows to find:
- Major cracks in tree trunks
- Downed or broken branches
- Fully or partially uprooted trees
Sometimes, harsh storm damage is limited to a tree or trees only, but at other times, it can extend to home and property as well. In these latter situations, homeowners might face predicaments where toppled trees or downed/broken branches are found:
- Fallen across vehicles parked in the driveway
- Leaning against or displacing a brick wall or siding
- Resting on a collapsed fence, shed, or section of roof
- Poking through windows, entry doors, or the garage door
- Blocking the driveway or prohibiting egress from the home
Regardless of the type or extent of the devastation, it is likely that there will be ongoing personal safety risks/issues to be addressed as soon as possible, and that a professional tree service will be needed to determine whether tree removal or tree repairs will be the optimal course of action. And while it might be tempting, especially due to their sense of urgency, for homeowners to try and resolve these situations on their own, this is work that is better left in the hands of experts, like the team from DreamWorks Tree Services.
DreamWorks Tree Services offers 24/7 emergency tree cleanup/removal services to help homeowners alleviate any immediate safety issues and begin the process of returning to their daily routines quickly and with the minimum amount of inconvenience/disruption as possible.

Preventative Tree Care Can Help in Averting Unnecessary Damage after Storms
A popular idiom attributed to Benjamin Franklin suggests that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This essentially means that it is usually better to prevent/avert a potentially negative situation from happening rather than having to pay for any services or repairs after that situation occurs.
From the standpoint of tree care, an analogy can be made to the investment of time and effort in regular tree maintenance, including possible tree removal, instead of suffering the consequences and the expense of extensive home and property damage from severe storms/weather conditions in the future.
Based on a professional assessment by a DreamWorks Tree Services arborist, there are several maintenance options that could be applied or implemented to help prevent future storm-related damage. Such tree care services consist of:
- Crown Shaping
- Branch Thinning
- Spur-Free Pruning
- Cabling and Bracing
