Storm Proofing Your Property: The Effects of Wind, Ice and Snow on Trees, People and Property
On December 11th from 6:30 – 8:00 at the Newmarket Public Library, Fred Borman, Rockingham County Field Specialist in Natural Resources for the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension, will present Storm Proofing Your Property: The Effects of Wind, Ice and Snow on Trees, People and Property.
In the past few years, New Hampshire has sustained severe tree damage from hurricanes, wind storms, ice and snow storms, and the tornado of July 2008. Homeowners and businesses lost electric power for days at a time. Buildings and property were damaged or destroyed by falling trees and branches. This presentation will cover basic tree biology as well as provide property owners with information they can use to plant and maintain healthy trees and what defects to look for in trees that may result in the failure of a tree or branches during a significant storm.
Fred Borman has been with UNH Cooperative Extension for six years. Prior to that, he was Urban Forestry Coordinator for the State of Connecticut for more than 18 years. His experience includes assisting communities with street tree inventories, planning, storm damage preparedness and volunteer organization and training. In addition, he is a team leader with the U.S. Forest Service’s Urban Forest Strike Team. Strike Teams in the northeast conducted tree damage assessments in Springfield, MA after the June 2011 tornado and in Manchester, NH after the October 2011 snow storm. Fred has a Bachelor’s degree in Forest Management from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and a Master’s in Public Administration from the University of New Hampshire. He has more than 33 years’ experience managing public and private forests.
