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 like storms and strong winds. Violent storms and extreme winds have been seen to wipe out trees and uplift even the sturdiest and healthiest trees from the soil, sending them plunging to the earth, or onto power lines, buildings, neighbours’ gardens and vehicles.

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 may lead to costly renovations.

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

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

Some other trees can be conserved by being trimmed back, with their most affected sections being ‘cut off’ much like how an operating surgeon might take off a gangrenous leg. Others will need to get staked with guy cables or supported with other supports up until they are able to re-develop the root structure they require to stand on their own.

If a storm has caused trees to fall on buildings, our tree professionals can be relied upon to clear away the injured trees efficiently, quickly and safely to allow the building and construction teams access to the property to begin restorations on the affected properties and power lines.

Various Kinds Of Storm Damage

Every one of these sorts of damage results in a distinct outlook for the trees’ potential survival, however making a diagnosis is a task ideally left to a fully trained arborist. An unqualified amateur is much more likely to overlook a small detail that might just separate one conclusion from another, such as finding 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 ground, causing the crown to fall or lean violently whilst the lower section stays standing normally.
  • Root Failures – is where the roots of the tree tear under the ground, resulting in the tree pitching or swaying 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 happens most typically on trees with extremely disproportionate crowns. The whole crown effectively transforms into 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 initial storm.
