Look Up! Damage Still Looms From Nor’easter

The electricity may be back on and the downed branches may be stacked by the side of the road —  but Connecticut residents haven’t seen the last of the effects of the October nor’easter .

Forester Jeffrey Ward at the Connecticut Agriculture Experiment Station says homeowners should take a close look for cracked branches which haven’t fallen off trees near their houses.  He says the broken branches will likely come down sometime in the next year,  during a snowstorm or on a windy day.

He says if one is cracked,  or if the homeowner is uncertain,  it’s a good idea to call a licensed arborist to check the tree,  rather than risk damage to the roof or the power line this winter.
