Tree Cleanup from Storm Damage

Arthur Ratliff offers dedicated storm damage cleanup in Columbia and Mid-Missouri

It shouldn’t come as any surprise how five of the country’s 25 most deadly tornadoes have occurred in Missouri. Residents know all too well how our peak tornado months can cause significant storm damage, but let’s not forget about all of the other storms which bring hail, strong wind and lighting. If you live in Columbia or mid-Missouri, you may need extra help cleaning up after a recent storm – and we can help with that.

Following a thunderstorm, our trained team of experts will visit you as soon as we can to assess the damage and get to work. Our process may include trimming broken limbs, grinding stumps from uprooted trees, and even removing fallen trees from your property. We guarantee to get your lot cleared up and want to make sure your home will be safe and protected from damaged trees during the next storm. We pride ourselves on leaving each yard in better condition than it was pre-storm.

Prevent Further Storm Damage with Regular Tree Trimming

Storm Damage FAQs

Do I really need to hire a professional company for cleanup?

It’s always a safer and better option to hire professionals for post-storm cleanup. If you’re trying to remove a fallen tree or perform cleanup yourself, you risk personal injury and additional damage to your property. If there are any power lines or other systems involved, leave cleanup to the professionals.

My trees seem damaged beyond repair. Is there anything I can do to save them?

One huge benefit to working with Arthur Ratliff is that we are certified arborists through the ISA (International Society of Arboriculture). We can assess the health and damage to any tree, and make recommendations and plans of action to remove or revive damaged trees.

Will my homeowners insurance cover tree cleanup?

It absolutely depends on your policy, but most policies will cover tree removal or cleanup if the tree has fallen on a fence, garage or home. We’ll work to keep costs below your coverage to avoid out-of-pocket fees.

What are the signs my tree is susceptible to storm damage?

If your tree has had issues with insects, weak roots, more branches on one side, previous damage and loose soil are all warning signs that your tree may be damaged during severe weather.
