Tips for clearing snow from trees:

  • Be aware that accumulation of snow, ice or wind can cause limbs to break and fall off at any time.
  • Make sure the tree is secure and clear of all power lines before clearing snow.
  • Do not attempt to shake snow from a tree if a power line crosses its branches or is within contact distance.
  • If the tree is clear of power lines, use a broom to remove as much snow as possible from the branches by gently brushing or shaking them. Avoid large and rapid movements as this could cause the limb to rupture.
  • Do not attempt to climb a tree or use a ladder to reach upper limbs.

If it appears that the tree has fallen on the power lines, it is best to leave it alone and wait for the utility to come and clean it up.
