Fallen trees, branches and limbs can wrack up a significant amount of damage during storm season.

Experts say you should have your trees evaluated every year and make sure they have been trimmed and pruned properly.

Information about how to properly prune your trees is available through the University Of Florida's Agriculture Extensions.

It is important to have trees evaluated every few years by a certified arborist.  You can find a list of companies by calling the Orange County Extension Office at (407) 254-9200.
