Dealing With Storm Damaged Trees

Clifton tree damaged by lightening

Despite the fact they are generally considered as being 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 soon after 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 lead to expensive renovations.

The most difficult decision after a windstorm is not how to deal with the trees that are definitely down, that is pretty much simple. The harder possibility is whether some of the trees still upright can be saved.

Certain trees that have been partly damaged in the windstorm can present a possible future risk and may have to be chopped down and removed to prevent placing people and property in danger in several months or even years to come.

Other trees maybe saved 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 damaged 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 one of these kinds of damage results in a distinct outlook for the trees’ long term survival, however forming a diagnosis is a task best entrusted to a fully certified arborist. An unqualified nonprofessional is far more liable to overlook a small detail that may separate one conclusion from another, such as seeing the splinters from a crown twist but failing to see the slight lean that signifies that the roots also failed.

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

  • Blowovers – this is where the entire tree comes down.
  • Stem Failures – this is where the trunk of the tree cracks above the ground, making the crown to come down 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 swaying 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 standing. 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 standing, 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 lightening-hit tree is typically at a substantially increased danger to drop even if it got through the initial windstorm.
