Posted: February 08, 2024

Zach Wilkerson is a certified arborist who has cleared downed trees in the wake of hurricanes on the Gulf Coast and a tornado in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.Thunder, lightnings and rain during storm over forest.

Now the general manager of TreePro in Santa Rosa, he’s spent the last three days getting trees off homes and cars and property, following the bomb cyclone that raked the North Bay with gale- and hurricane-force winds Sunday.

Where Wilkerson and his crew might make five visits in a day on average, they looked at 20 properties Monday, when his workday started at 4 a.m. and ended 16 hours later.

“This is very much like that work back in the southeast, and the Gulf Coast. A lot of my crew has never experienced anything like this,” he said.

“I’ve been hearing from people around the county that they’ve never seen this kind of weather event here. It’s been insane.”
