Dealing With Storm Damaged Trees

{}Despite the fact that they’re often taken as being durable and timeless, trees may become vulnerable in adverse weather conditions like storms and strong winds. Fierce storms and strong winds have been seen to annihilate trees and uplift even the healthiest & sturdiest trees out of 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 dislodged branches & storm-damaged trees damaging property or blocking the road. Aside from the danger & inconvenience it also can cause costly repairs.

The most difficult decision after a storm is not how to deal with the trees that have definitely fallen down, that is pretty simple. The tougher choice is if any of the trees still standing are salvageable.

Various trees that have been partially harmed in the windstorm may pose a possible future risk and may have to be chopped down and disposed of to avoid placing people and property in danger in many months or years ahead.

Some other trees can be conserved by being trimmed back, with their worst affected sections being ‘cut off’ much like how an operating surgeon might take off a gangrenous leg. Others may require to be staked with guy ropes 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 windstorm has caused trees to fall on buildings, our tree contractors can be relied upon to take away the injured trees efficiently, quickly and safely to allow the building and construction crews easy access to the building to begin maintenance and repairs on the damaged buildings and power lines.

Different Kinds Of Storm Damage

Every one of these types of problem results in a varied diagnosis for the trees’ long term survival, but forming a diagnosis is a task best left to a fully trained arborist. An unqualified nonprofessional is much more likely to fail to notice a small detail that might just separate one conclusion from another, such as observing the splinters from a crown twist but failing to see the slight lean that signifies that the roots also failed.

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

  • Blowovers – this is where the whole tree falls down.
  • Stem Failures – this is where the trunk of the tree splits above the ground, leading to the trees crown to come down or lean strongly even though the bottom part remains standing normally.
  • Root Failures – is when the roots of the tree break under the ground, resulting in the tree leaning or swaying considerably.
  • Limb Failures – is where several limbs of the tree break off.
  • Crown Twists – is when the trunk of the tree turns enough to split, but stays standing. This occurs most typically on trees with extremely disproportionate crowns. The whole crown effectively transforms into a weather vane in a storm, twisting to follow the wind flow in a way that the trunk can’t.
  • Lightening Hits – When lightening strikes the tree gets burned and electrocuted, but stays standing, for now. Lightening hits have a many additional 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 typically at a much increased risk to drop despite the fact that it made it through the initial windstorm.
