Storm in a treetop? By Elizabeth Nicholls
Following the recent storms that have hit record levels within the UK, many people have been affected. One of the most common issues experienced is that of trees falling or broken branches. This can cause a multitude of problems including blocking passage of vehicles - preventing roads and homes from being accessed, disruption in communications or other services, causing large (and small) amounts of damage to property. Sadly, this may also lead to death, in some cases.
