Billy Broussard has been in the tree trimming service for a long time. Before Hurricane Isaac, he was already getting calls to come and trim trees for precautionary reasons.
He suggests that people take good care of the larger trees in their yard well before a storm develops. The more leaves and unnecessary branches on trees, the more likely strong wind can bring them to the ground. Trees near your home especially need to be taken care of. One tree on your house can cost you thousands of dollars, even after insurance.
Larger trees with branches act as a big glove when the wind blows. They can only take so much stress before subduing to the stress of the wind.
Broussard's company has worked in Texas all the way up to Virginia Beach providing services after disasters.
