Decatur Residents and Visitors –
There is a possibility of trees being blown down during the thunderstorms moving through our area in the next couple of days.
After a long period of drought, some tree roots are lost. As the ground becomes saturated by rain, the remaining roots are left in loosened soils. This makes the trees susceptible to being blown down by wind gusts.
For this reason, please use caution around mature trees. Do not park under trees if it can be avoided.
If you have any concerns about the condition of your trees, please contact a certified arborist for an inspection.
