What to do if your yard was destroyed by the summer snowstorm – Calgary

CALGARY- A sudden summer snowstorm that downed trees and power lines has left some Calgary homeowners with major property damage.

Falling trees and branches damaged some cars and homes, and obliterated plants and shrubs. The city says there have been nearly five thousand calls made to 311 since midnight Tuesday, and about 900 of those were in regards to damaged tree limbs.

“Clean up what you can, what’s damaged,” suggests Cheryl Trotter from Palliser Insurance. “Remove all the broken stuff now, because it’s just going to be an open wound for next year.”

While there is limited insurance coverage available for outdoor trees and plants, it can be hard to prove snow damage.

“It all depends on your type of shrub, how healthy it is, how much snow can accumulate,” explains John Duncan from Greengate Garden Centre. “There can be a lot of variables in there.”

He suggests shaking snow off of trees and shrubs to reduce the weight, and cutting away broken tree limbs.

City landfills are accepting broken tree limbs, and do not charge a disposal fee.
