Safety in the woodlands is always your top priority. From widow makers to spring poles to lodged trees, there are many hazards in the woodlands following an ice storm. Please, always consider using professional services to assess and clear any hazards in your woodland.


If there are situations that look dangerous, they probably are. Running a chainsaw and felling damaged trees is extremely dangerous. Hire a trained logger (Kentucky Master Logger) or a professional tree care specialist to get danger trees on the ground. Make sure they carry liability insurance. Sometimes loggers may have mechanized equipment that can be very safely used in ice damaged woods.
