Saturated Soils Lead To Ground Failures


The Bay Area has received about 5 days of straight rain after a winter that barely produced any significant rain fall. These saturated soil conditions coupled with strong winds can lead to an increased chance of ground failure incidents. Things to watch for include the following:

  • Trees that are leaning
  • Fractured or cracked soil near the trunk of the tree
  • Mounded or uplifted soil or roots near the trunk of the tree

Please contact our certified arborist for an assessment if you see any of the above conditions or if you think your tree could be unstable.
