ATLANTA, GA, June 09, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to Atlanta tree service Yellow Ribbon, trees should be examined several times a year to make sure that they do not pose a threat to your property. During storms, dead limbs can break and trees that are unstable can topple. Each year, Georgia trees cause millions of dollars in damage.

Inspect Your Soil
Look around your tree and examine the soil. Make sure that the soil is compact and helps keep the tree stable and well fed. If you find holes or cavities, they should be filled. Look for fungal growth such as mushrooms. This could indicate a larger problem. If you suspect fungal growth or disease, contact your Atlanta tree service.

Inspect Your Tree's Trunk
You should inspect your trees often for evidence of lightening strikes, unusual cavities or missing bark, which could indicate a disease or fungal growth. If a tree is unhealthy, a damaged or diseased trunk can also be a great haven for harmful insects. A tree's bark is a protective layer, and if it is damaged, the tree's overall health can be affected. Make sure that your tree's trunk is firmly supported by the root system. If the tree is dead or dying, you should call an Atlanta tree removal service to see what can be done to save or remove the tree.

Inspect Your Tree's Branches
Tree branches can become dangerous missiles during heavy storms. Your tree should be pruned and the health of the branches should be evaluated a couple of times a year. This is most often done in the spring and fall. Look for dead, diseased, cracked or split branches and deal with them accordingly. Take time to examine your tree's branches before and after a storm.

"The best way to ensure that your property remains safe as heavy spring and summer storms roll through the Atlanta area is to properly maintain your tree's health. Every year we are called upon to remove trees and branches that have caused avoidable damage to homes, automobiles and other property," says Gary Robertson, Owner of Yellow Ribbon Tree Experts.

Properly caring for your trees can save you money and time in the long run. Check on your tree's overall health at least twice a year. To learn more about keeping your trees healthy, visit
