Storm Damage on Trees – November 21

November 27, 2013 Updated Nov 27, 2013 at 3:26 PM CDT

With the tornados affecting Washington & Pekin along with other surrounding communities, Ella Maxwell (who is a Washington resident) says most trees at this time are dormant, so you are in no rush to do tree work because there are no insects or potential threats to worry about for the health of your trees. The Evergreen Trees took a lot of damage from the tornado/storms because their leaves took a lot of the wind force, and it’s nearly impossible for them to survive. If 50% of the tree or more is damaged or gone, the tree should be removed and a new one can be re-planted.
