OKLAHOMA CITY -

The ice storm has had tree trimming companies working overtime to clear broken limbs on homes and power lines.

Rickert Landscaping and Tree Service had crews out this weekend taking care of homeowners who were in immediate danger of losing power or their homes from trees falling.

"There's a lot of tree limbs that have broken and it's taken out the dead tree branches first and the weaker-long tree branches second," said Todd Rickert.

"In the winter the trees are dormant so there's not as much sap flowing the wood to be able to make the tree as strong as it needs to be," said arborist, Shae Brown.

Also be sure any tree removal company you hire is a legit company.
