Tropical Storm Beryl hit Jacksonville last night. She brought quite a bit of much needed rain and strong enough winds to bring down a few trees and a good number of tree limbs. Although Tropical Storm Beryl was technically a tropical storm, Jacksonville often gets northeasters (nor’easters) and typical summer thunderstorms that pack high winds and cause extensive damage too.
Our oldest daughter has a couple of large oak trees in her front yard in Mandarin (see recently listed homes for sale in Mandarin below this post) that has quite a few dead limbs that need trimming. Her husband has been “planning” to get them trimmed for several months but hadn’t gotten around to it yet. They were out of town for the holiday weekend so I went over to check on their home to see if Tropical Storm Beryl had caused any damage there.Below is a video showing that Tropical Storm Beryl began the tree trimming job for them. Fortunately, no limbs fell on the house or vehicles but they may not be so lucky the next time. As you can see in the video, one limb did fall on the power line going to the house.
Tropical Storm Beryl offered a timely reminder for Northeast Florida area home owners to use precaution and take care of trimming dead limbs from their trees before a strong wind brings them down on houses, cars or people. Every year we hear about serious damage being caused by falling trees and/or limbs. It seems that every year we hear about someone being severely injured or killed by them also. We want to encourage everyone to take a few minutes this week to carefully examine the trees on their own properties and call a qualified tree surgeon sooner than later to take care of any potentially dangerous situations.
This definitely comes under the adage, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!”
