Winter doesn’t go away quietly here in Ontario. Heavy ice storms are a common late-season problem, and they can cause serious property damage. While your tree may have come this far without your help, the next big storm could be the tipping point that breaks a lot of branches, or even brings the whole tree down.
This damage isn’t restricted to your tree, of course; your car and home are susceptible to bearing the brunt of falling limbs. You should properly prepare your tree for the worst winter has to make sure it comes into spring intact!
