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.
