WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The passing storms could mean a greater chance of fallen trees in our area.
Urban Forestry Specialist Lindsey Purcell says wet ground coupled with high wind speeds means more trees could fall over.
He says last summer's drought may also play a factor in the trees' potential to fall.
"Once the roots start to desiccate and dry out they start separating from the soil," Purcell said "Also, it causes a decline in tree health. I think all of that is going to play a part in potential failures. If we get some serious winds we may see potential for more failure."
Purcell says if you have a tree that looks like it may fall, contact an arborist to best handle the situation.
