Taking Care Of Storm Damaged Trees

{}Though they’re generally taken as being sturdy and everlasting, trees can easily come to be 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 healthiest & sturdiest trees from the soil, sending them plunging to the earth, or onto neighbours’ gardens, power lines, vehicles, and buildings.

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

The toughest decision following a storm is not how to deal with the trees that have definitely fallen down, that’s pretty easy. The more challenging choice is if any of the trees left upright are salvageable.

Some trees that have been in part injured in the storm might pose a future risk and may need to be disassembled and disposed of to avoid placing people and property at risk in several months or even years to come.

Some other trees maybe conserved by being trimmed back, with their most injured sections being ‘cut off’ much like how an operating surgeon would take off a gangrenous leg. Others will need to be staked with guy cables or supported with other supports up until they are able to re-develop the root structure 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 just differentiate one conclusion from another, such as observing the splinters from a crown twist but failing to see the slight lean which shows that the roots also failed.

There are generally 6 types of storm damage which a tree can’t generally sustain:

  • Blowovers – these are where the whole tree is uprooted.
  • Stem Failures – this is where the trunk of the tree cracks above the soil, causing the crown to fall or lean strongly whilst the lower section remains standing normally.
  • Root Failures – is where the root systems of the tree tear under the soil, resulting in the tree pitching or swinging considerably.
  • Branch Failures – is where one or more limbs of the tree break off.
  • Crown Twists – is where the trunk of the tree turns enough to split, but stays up. This takes place most typically on trees with extremely disproportionate crowns. The whole crown effectively becomes a weathervane 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 number of secondary effects like massive water loss and opening a large amount of surface area up to pests and vermin, so a tree hit by lightening is always at a considerably higher risk to fall despite the fact that it made it through the original storm.
