Preparing for Hurricane Season

The 2019 Official “Atlantic Hurricane Season” is just starting and the early predictions are for an active tropical season of 9 to 15 named storms with 4 to 8 of those expected to develop into hurricanes with winds of 75 miles an hour or greater, and 2 to 4 of them becoming major hurricanes with 111 mph sustained winds or higher. There is what is called a hurricane preparedness kit that involves everything from items you might need in the event you are directly in the path of a hurricane, to things you want to accomplish if in fact the storm affects you and your property. Eagerton Tree Service, a recognized and highly successful tree service company in Jacksonville Florida, understands how important it is to have a 24-hour emergency tree removal service available in the event you experience a downed tree. A professional and experienced tree surgeon is always available, 24 hours a day to answer your questions and if needed, respond to an issue if the situation warrants it.
