How to Handle Inclement Weather and Your Scheduled Seasonal Tree Care Service

As an expert in the field of seasonal tree care services, I have seen firsthand the impact that inclement weather can have on scheduled appointments. While we always hope for clear skies and ideal conditions, Mother Nature doesn't always cooperate. So, what happens if you have a tree care service scheduled and the weather takes a turn for the worse? Before we dive into the potential effects of inclement weather, let's first discuss why seasonal tree care services are so important. Trees are an essential part of our environment, providing us with clean air, shade, and beauty.

However, they also require proper care and maintenance to thrive. Seasonal tree care services, such as pruning, trimming, and fertilizing, help keep trees healthy and strong. They also prevent potential hazards, such as dead or diseased branches, from causing harm to people or property. Regular tree care can also improve the overall appearance of your landscape and increase your property value.

The Impact of Inclement Weather on Tree Care Services

Inclement weather can come in many forms, from heavy rain and strong winds to extreme temperatures and snowstorms. Each type of weather can have a different effect on your scheduled tree care service.


Rain is a common occurrence in many parts of the country, and it can have both positive and negative effects on trees.

On one hand, rain provides much-needed moisture for trees to grow and thrive. However, heavy rain can also cause soil erosion and waterlogging, which can be harmful to trees. In some cases, it may be necessary to reschedule your tree care service if the ground is too wet for our equipment to safely access your trees.


Strong winds can be a significant concern for tree care services. Not only can they make it difficult for our team to safely work on trees, but they can also cause damage to branches and even uproot entire trees.

If there are high winds in the forecast, we may need to reschedule your appointment for a calmer day.

Extreme Temperatures:

Extreme temperatures, whether hot or cold, can also impact tree care services. In extreme heat, trees may become stressed and more susceptible to disease and pests. On the other hand, extreme cold can cause damage to branches and leaves. If temperatures are too extreme, we may need to postpone your tree care service until conditions improve.


Snow can be a beautiful sight, but it can also cause problems for tree care services.

Heavy snow can weigh down branches and cause them to break, potentially causing damage to your property or posing a safety hazard. Additionally, snow and ice can make it challenging for our team to access your trees safely. In these cases, we may need to reschedule your appointment for a later date.

What You Can Do if Inclement Weather Affects Your Tree Care Service

If you have a tree care service scheduled and inclement weather is in the forecast, there are a few things you can do to prepare:
  • Stay in communication: If you know that bad weather is on the way, stay in touch with your tree care service provider. They will likely be monitoring the weather as well and can keep you updated on any potential changes to your appointment.
  • Be flexible: While we always try to stick to our scheduled appointments, sometimes weather conditions make it impossible.

    Be understanding and flexible if your tree care service needs to be rescheduled.

  • Take precautions: If you have trees that are particularly vulnerable to certain types of weather, such as high winds or heavy snow, take precautions to protect them. This could include pruning weak branches or covering delicate trees with a tarp.

The Bottom Line

Inclement weather can be frustrating, especially when it affects your scheduled seasonal tree care service. However, it's essential to remember that the safety of our team and your trees is our top priority. We will always do our best to work around the weather and provide you with the best possible service. If you have any concerns or questions about how inclement weather may impact your tree care service, don't hesitate to reach out to your tree care provider.
