TIFTON, Ga. (WALB) – On days when fallen trees can lead to power outages and home damage, experts say it’s important to maintain the height of tree felling to prevent deadly danger.
South Georgia Tree Services has been in business for over 10 years. They serve Tift County, Irvine County, and Coffee County. Owner Charlie Barnes told WALB how they pruned the trees to deal with the harsh weather conditions. He said their phone kept ringing.
Barnes wants the community to know that if a tree falls in your home or vehicle, it is usually covered by insurance.
“We work directly with your insurance company. We’ll bill them directly in the unfortunate event that if a tree does land on your home or vehicle, it’s like it’s insured,” he said.
By studying previous storms, this allows them to prepare for future severe weather conditions, Barnes said. During these hours, calls are usually uninterrupted, he said.
“Every time a hurricane is declared, the storm itself is named, the call gets answered a little bit. Then when the warning comes, it picks up. Especially for customers who are already on the books, rest assured, we want to take care of everyone who calls us ,” Barnes said.
Barnes encouraged people to maintain trees and damaged limbs. He said that sooner or later they would have to be cut. Doing so will avoid injury to yourself and damage to your home.
