Taking Care Of Storm Damaged Trees

{}Although they’re usually seen as being sturdy and eternal, trees can certainly end up being vulnerable in extreme weather like storms and strong winds. Intense storms and strong winds have been seen to decimate trees and rip even the healthiest & sturdiest trees out of the soil, sending them toppling to the earth, or onto power lines, buildings, neighbours’ gardens and vehicles.

How many times following strong winds have you heard of storm-damaged trees & dislodged branches damaging property or blocking the road. Apart from the danger and inconvenience it also may cause costly restorations.

The hardest option following a storm isn’t how to get rid of the trees that have definitely fallen down, that’s fairly easy. The tougher decision is whether any of the trees left upright are salvageable.

Various trees that have been moderately damaged in the storm might pose a potential risk and might have to be disassembled and took out to avoid placing property & people in danger in several months or even years to come.

Various Sorts Of Storm Damage

Each of these types of damage results in a distinct prognosis for the trees’ potential survival, however forming a prognosis is a job ideally left to a fully trained arborist. An unqualified amateur is far more going to miss a small detail that might just separate one verdict from another, such as finding the splinters from a crown twist but failing to see the slight lean that indicates that the roots also snapped.

There are generally 6 sorts of storm damage that a tree can’t usually sustain:

  • Blowovers – this is where the entire tree falls down.
  • Stem Failures – this is where the trunk of the tree splits above the ground, causing the crown to come down or to angle strongly whilst the lower section stays standing normally.
  • Root Failures – is where the root systems of the tree tear under the ground, leading to the tree pitching or swaying considerably.
  • Branch Failures – is where several branches of the tree fall off.
  • Crown Twists – is where the trunk of the tree turns enough to split, but stays up. This occurs most commonly on trees with highly unbalanced crowns. The entire crown ultimately transforms into a weathervane in a storm, twisting to follow the wind flow in a way that the trunk can’t.
  • Lightening Strikes – When lightening strikes the tree gets burned and electrocuted, but stays up, at the moment. Lightening strikes have a lot of secondary effects like opening a large amount of surface area up to pests and vermin and massive water loss, so a tree hit by lightening is always at a considerably increased risk to fall even if it made it through the initial storm.
