Surviving the Winter in Derby CT

The town of Derby is an old, historic town located in New Haven County, CT. Many old factories, such as the Derby Silver Company, made Derby what it is today. It was a big manufacturing town, and gave the town much of its history. Since it is known as the “valley” area, it is a very wooded area. It is a small town with 5 square miles of land, boasting with a large wooded area.


Unfortunately, being in a heavily wooded area often poses danger in the winter. Trees in the valley are liable to become weakened by strong winds or heavy snow. Since Derby has many hills, transportation will be more difficult during winter. If trees fall on hills, more destruction can be done than a town with a flat landscape.


Winter can damage trees in many ways, and some of the signs to look for are: frost cracks in the tree, falling branches, bark discoloration, bark peeling off, etc. These are some of the signs that trees are weak and their health needs to be double checked. If these problems persist for too long, than the tree can potentially fall over and cause some serious hazards.

Luckily, Precision Cutting Services is here for all of you tree removal needs. With over 20 years of tree service experience, we bring knowledge in design, installation, landscaping and tree service. We do many tree services from stump grinding to complete tree removal to ensure that your town has a safe winter this year.

Upcoming Winter Events in Monroe CT


An upcoming event near Monroe CT for this holiday season will be the 13th annual Save the Children Star Shine Plunge. For this event, a Polar Plunge will take place at Jennings beach on January 1st at 9:30 AM, 880 south Benson Road in Fairfield. Money will be raised for Save the children. Celebrate this fun, annual winter event for a good cause!


Since outdoor activities are always a concern in the winter, we advice people to look out for signs of tree damage to prevent a hazardous condition. Many trees become weak from the frigid cold weather, and could develop frost cracks. If you find frost cracks or areas of a tree with missing bark, then it may be time to analyze your trees.


Heavy winds and snow can threaten outdoor events since winds can loosen branches, and heavy snow can make trees fall.  Severe winter weather can damage trees in a few ways. Trees can become discolored, roots can become damaged, branches can bend and break, and salt can also damage the tree.

So if you think that you have trees in danger of falling this winter, contact Precision Cutting Services today. We are the tree specialists, and can safely and quickly remove any hazardous tree. For emergency tree removal services, we are available 24 hours. From stump grind and limb cutting to removing fallen trees - we are there for all of your tree needs.
