ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The recent heavy rains in South Georgia might have put the trees in your yard at risk of falling.

Experts said Wednesday that there are things you can watch for.

Certified Arborist David Edwards with D & D Tree Service said to look for limbs pointing toward the ground or leaning one way.

Edwards said trees in South Georgia's storm damaged areas are at risk.

The high winds back in January damaged many trees that could still fall.

"The residual from those storms alone a lot of people thought maybe a year or whatever," said Edwards. "My estimate would be more like five years before we catch up to it."

Edwards said if you notice changes in your trees or aren't sure about the risk, you should call your local tree specialist.
