Oak Tree Rescue from Winter Storm Pax

Aiken, SC

While heavy ice and snow are expected in some parts of our country, Aiken, SC is certainly not one of them! During Winter Storm Pax, over an inch of ice accumulated on the leaves and limbs of our southern trees. Live Oaks (Quercas virginiana) were one species unable to sustain the added weight. In this project, our team of Certified Arborists are working with the Simmons family to save as many of these grand old trees as possible. Through restoration pruning and selective removal, the cleanup process will alleviate the incredible damage caused by the storm.

They were very professional. It was amazing to watch as they lifted large tree branches over my house with a crane.— Mary O., Aiken, SC
