JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The ground is soaked and most of older trees branches are huge and experts say it doesn't take much for them to fall.
"There is a lot of dangerous trees still standing. There are a lot of trees that have been weakened by the storm," said Rick Warming.
It's the clean-up after the storm. Homeowners may still be clearing up debris after Tropical Storm Beryl, but local tree surgeons say this may only be the start.
"They weigh thousands of pounds. So if you happen to be underneath them when they come down or your car or house, they do a lot of damage," he said.
Most massive oaks were left standing after the storm, but Rick Warming with Warming Tree Service says it won't take nearly as much to take them down during a second storm.
"With a lot of rain, it has saturated the ground and the root systems are weak," he said.
Many homeowners in Jacksonville learned that the hard way after Thursday's thunderstorms. But it's not to late to keep gravity from wreaking havoc on your yard.
"If you see any upset roots or see the ground lifted a little bit, those are the trees that you want to watch out for. Those are the ones that are going to fall," said Warming.
"We are lucky that we didn't have any trees knocked down," said Steve Issacs.
Steve says with water oaks this old, he makes sure all of the dead branches on his lot are trimmed. "You have to take it down before the wind does it for you," said Issacs.
Experts say if your tree caused a lot of yard debris this week, that may be another sign that it needs to come down.
