BEDFORD HILLS, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 07/06/11 -- The storms that impacted the east coast through the spring and early summer of 2011 were both catastrophic and record-breaking. Government estimates say there were more tornadoes in a single day in late May 2011 than any other day in history. To put things in perspective, during one weeklong outbreak, government analysts say there were 312 tornadoes, including a record-setting 226 in one day. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said the largest previous number on record in one event occurred in 1974, with 148 tornadoes over a 24 hour period.
In their wake, these storms left homeowners and property managers with unprecedented and costly tree damage. SavATree, a leading provider of eco-friendly tree and lawncare services, is currently helping customers take preventive measures to increase their trees' chances of surviving extreme weather in the future.
By conducting thorough Risk Audits that look at factors such as visual evidence of root rot, signs of root plate lifting, space issues, transverse or longitudinal cracks, unbalanced canopies or excessive lean, SavATree experts are able to identify conditions that might cause trees to fail and work with customers to establish a plan of action.
'Our Risk Audit system has proven very effective in the diagnosis and correction of the problems that affect the strength and viability of our customers' trees,' said Dane Buell, Director of General Tree Care at SavATree. 'While we can't make guarantees, our system allows us to make an informed recommendation to the homeowner or property manager that may give their trees a fighting chance going forward.'
