Fallproof Your Roof

Fallproof Your Roof

As fall blows into town, take a look at your roof and see what needs to be pruned from nearby trees. Limbs that grew during the summer may be hanging down too close. If branches are actually hitting the roof, they can trap moisture and cause mildew. Even if branches are not actually touching but just hanging over the roof they could be dangerous since they will shed leaves and clog gutters--or worse yet, snap during storms and damage the roof. To help with this often tricky pruning, try a 12-foot telescoping pole pruner. Ask for one at your local store.
