Managing Storm Damaged Trees

tree preservation order Clifton

Despite the fact they are generally considered as being really durable and eternal, trees can easily come to be vulnerable in adverse weather such as strong winds and storms. Fierce storms and extreme winds have been known to wipe out trees and tear even the healthiest & sturdiest trees from the soil, sending them crashing to the ground, 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. In addition to the inconvenience & danger it also can cause expensive renovations.

The most difficult decision following a windstorm is not how to deal with the trees that are definitely down, that is more or less simple. The harder possibility is if some of the trees still upright can be saved.

Certain trees that have been in part damaged in the windstorm can present a potential risk and might have to be chopped down and took out to prevent placing people and property at risk in several months or even years to come.

Other trees maybe conserved by being pruned back, with their worst cracked sections being ‘amputated’ exactly like how an operating surgeon would amputate a gangrenous limb. Some other will need to be staked down with guy wires or held up with various other supports up until they are able to re-develop the root structure they have to have to stand on their own.

If a storm has caused trees to fall on property, our tree specialists can be trusted to remove the affected trees efficiently, quickly and safely to allow the building and construction crews access to the property to begin maintenance and repairs on the affected buildings and power lines.

Various Sorts Of Storm Damage

Clifton tree uprooted after a stormEach of these kinds of damage results in a distinct outlook for the trees’ potential survival, however forming a diagnosis is a task best entrusted to a fully certified arborist. An unqualified nonprofessional is far more liable to disregard a small detail that might separate one conclusion from another, like noticing the splinters from a crown twist but missing the slight lean which signifies that the roots also failed.

There are generally 6 kinds of storm damage which a tree can’t usually endure:

  • Blowovers – these are where the entire tree comes down.
  • Stem Failures – this is where the trunk of the tree cracks above the ground, making the trees crown to fall or to angle strongly even though the lower part remains standing normally.
  • Root Failures – is when the root systems of the tree tear beneath the ground, leading to the tree bending or swinging noticeably.
  • Limb Failures – is where several branches of the tree fall off.
  • Crown Twists – is when the trunk of the tree rotates enough to split, but stays up. This happens most often on trees with very unbalanced crowns. The entire crown essentially ends up being a weather vane in a windstorm, twisting to follow the wind in a way that the trunk is unable to.
  • Lightening Strikes – When lightening strikes the tree gets burned and electrocuted, but stays up, for now. Lightening hits have a number of secondary effects such as massive water loss and opening a large amount of surface area up to pests and vermin, so a tree hit by lightening is typically at a substantially increased danger to drop even if it got through the initial windstorm.
