With storm season fast approaching, the Wakulla County Extension Office is reminding Big Bend residents of the potential danger posed by trees. Falling trees can cause serious damage to homes, property, and people.
Director Les Harrison said residents should be aware of certain warning signs.
“Are there limbs at severe angles? Is there any obvious disease or insect pressure? Are trees rubbing up against structures – or against other trees? Any of these can speed the decline of the tree,” Harrison said.
