LITTLE ROCK, Ark.(KTHV)- Storms this past weekend caused all sorts of problems. One big one was the toppling of trees all over central Arkansas.
Terry James, owner of James Tree Service, says more rain, wind, and saturated soil creates a recipe for disaster.
"Today I've covered about 15 jobs."
James says the wet ground leaves trees with little to stand on.
"The root systems that are out there under the trees, they're supposed to stabilize the tree in all directions, so when you have a real watery situation and the ground is just so soft to walk on. Therefore the tree roots will just break and give way."
That's exactly what happened to a tree along Colonel Glenn, taking down power lines and barely missing a building.
James says the trees that toppled over already had issues.
