The state government has a program to help householders prepare this year. It is supported by the RACQ. For those who have a lot of experience this is nothing new but we do need to remember that every year more & more young people and new home owners are living independently for the first time and need to know what we have known forever.

Tree preparation is too often overlooked. Anything can help from removing that tree you know has too much deadwood to a light prune above those power lines. I have seen branches whip a power line in a storm that were metres away without the wind.
If you are not sure call for a professional opinion. An Arborist report can cost as little as $180+gst for a residential block. It could save you a great deal in anguish during this next storm season. Call us.
