See our three new guides on Tree Risk Assessment, Standing Contracts and Debris Management to meet FEMA requirements and ensure communities are ready for the next storm. A Community Forest Storm Mitigation Plan can be made part of the community’s existing emergency plan or can be a standalone plan. Such a plan should focus specifically on ways to avoid or mitigate the damage trees may cause during a storm or other catastrophic event.
Tree Risk Assessment: Get ready for storms by first identifying and treating risky trees and limbs to reduce storm damages and tree failure later.
Standing Contracts: Prepare advance or standing contracts to ensure you have the most qualified professionals to help you during a disaster and ensure faster cleanup
Debris Management Sites: Be ready to manage the significant debris from a storm so that roads and emergency services can be cleared and ready to function faster.
