Summer Monsoon Safety

If you haven’t experienced summer in Arizona, get ready for the beginning of Monsoon Season. Did you know the earliest start date for the monsoon was June 16, 1925? Arizona storms are considered monsoons when the average dew point is 55 degrees or higher for three consecutive days. These storms bring severe winds, dust and towering thunder clouds. They can cause extensive damage to anything in their path too. We are more concerned with your safety during this season than the definition of a monsoon. If you have a tree management preventive plan in place you can prevent potential hazards.
Here are a few things that you can do to help protect yourself during monsoon season:

1.       Plan ahead
2.       Have a first aid kit ready
3.       Listen to the weather reports
4.       Stake your trees
5.       Stay away from downed power lines
