Taking Care Of Storm Damaged Trees

{}Though they’re generally taken as being sturdy and everlasting, trees can easily end up being vulnerable in extreme weather conditions such as storms and strong winds. Violent storms and extreme winds have been known to wipe out trees and uplift even the sturdiest & healthiest trees out of the soil, sending them plunging to the earth, or onto neighbours’ gardens, power lines, vehicles, and buildings.

How many times shortly after strong winds have you heard about dislodged branches & storm-damaged trees damaging property or blocking the road. Aside from the inconvenience and danger it also will lead to expensive restorations.

The toughest decision following a storm is not how to remove the trees that have definitely fallen down, that’s pretty straightforward. The more challenging choice is if any of the trees still standing are salvageable.

Some trees that have been partially injured in the storm may well present a future hazard and may need to be disassembled and disposed of to avoid placing people and property at risk in several months or even years in the future.

Some other trees maybe preserved by being trimmed back, with their most injured parts being ‘cut off’ much like how an operating surgeon would amputate a gangrenous leg. Others may need to be staked with guy ropes or supported with other supports up until they are able to re-develop the root system they need to have to stand on their own.

Various Types Of Storm Damage

Each one of these types of damage results in a distinct outlook for the trees’ potential survival, however making a diagnosis is a job ideally entrusted to a fully trained arborist. An unqualified amateur is much more likely to overlook a small detail that might differentiate one conclusion from another, like finding the splinters from a crown twist but failing to see the slight lean that shows that the roots also failed.

There are generally 6 types of storm damage that a tree can’t generally stand up to:

  • Blowovers – these are where the whole tree comes down.
  • Stem Failures – this is where the trunk of the tree cracks above the soil, causing the crown to fall or sag violently whilst the lower section remains standing normally.
  • Root Failures – is when the root systems of the tree tear under the soil, leading to the tree pitching or swinging considerably.
  • Branch Failures – is where one or more limbs of the tree break off.
  • Crown Twists – is when the trunk of the tree rotates enough to split, but stays up. This takes place most typically on trees with very disproportionate crowns. The whole crown effectively ends up being a weather vane in a storm, twisting to follow the wind in a way that the trunk can not.
  • Lightening Hits – When lightening strikes the tree gets burned and electrocuted, but stays up, at the moment. Lightening strikes have a lot of additional effects like opening a large amount of surface area up to pests and vermin and massive water loss, so a lightening-hit tree is always at a considerably higher risk to fall despite the fact that it made it through the initial storm.
