ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany area tree cutters stayed busy during this winter storm, but not because of limbs broken by ice build-up.     

Harper Tree Service received dozens of calls from anxious homeowners, worried that trees might break because of the weight of ice on them.           

Lee Harper says his crews stayed busy trimming limbs above homes, but had few calls because of actual damage from icy trees.

"We didn't get as many calls as we did three years ago.  But we did still get some calls. Right now we got them in full force for us doing preventive work."     

Harper says people concerned about possible damage from trees need to call a tree service well before severe weather or an ice storm is forecast.
