Winter is fast approaching and with it comes the potential to bring severe winter weather and storm damage to your property.  Before this happens to you and your family, come and learn to prepare for the worst and to protect your trees and property from the effects storm damage due to wind, ice, and snow on trees.

In the past few years, New Hampshire has sustained severe tree damage from hurricanes, wind storms, ice and snow storms, and the tornado of July 2008.  Homeowners and businesses lost electric power for days at a time. Buildings and property were damaged or destroyed by falling trees and branches.  This presentation will cover basic tree biology as well as provide property owners with information they can use to plant and maintain healthy trees and what defects to look for in trees that may result in the failure of a tree or branches during a significant storm.

Join us on December 3rd at 6:00 PM in the Winchell Room of the Manchester City Library as Fred Borman, Rockingham County Field Specialist in Natural Resources for the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension, presents Storm Proofing Your Property:  The Effects of Wind, Ice and Snow on Trees, People and Property.
