In La Fontaine Park, Montreal, there is a huge tree lying on the ground. It will take the help of professionals to move the storm-stricken former giant.

Pruners also recommend that citizens do not dare to perform any operations that could cause injury.

We’ve received several calls. Simon Beaudry, tree expert at Élagage Proservice, explains that there are about 25 calls a day for ice emergencies.

Measures must also be taken to minimize damage and injury.

We also use load-bearing cables to really support the sections so they don’t damage surfaces anymore. It is definitely dangerous. There’s the issue of liability, all of this is insurance… People take with insurance, people who are competent, who have their hearts in pruning. The idea of ​​doing it yourself is not ideal,” explains Mr. Beaudry.
