When an area has been free of hurricane-strength winds for a number of years, there is a possibility of severe damage to trees and to the structures near them when a storm finally hits. Trees and shrubs, even those native to an area, can grow too massive or unbalanced to be able to stand windstorms. This document explains how to prune and shape trees in order to minimize the risks of damage. First published in Sept. 1985.
