Check Trees

If you have any young trees it is worth checking that the soil is tight around the base of their trunks. If they have worked loose because of wind and left a gap, with the frequency of heavy rain at this time of year and winter on its way, there is a danger that excess water will get straight to the roots and waterlog them, which could kill your tree.
