Dealing With Storm Damaged Trees
Although they’re usually considered as being really solid and permanent, trees can certainly come to be defenceless in extreme weather such as storms & strong winds. Powerful storms and extreme winds have been seen to annihilate trees and uplift even the healthiest & sturdiest trees from the soil, sending them plunging to the ground, or onto buildings, power lines, vehicles and neighbours’ gardens.
How many times soon after strong winds have you heard about dislodged branches and storm-damaged trees blocking the road or damaging property. Aside from the inconvenience and danger it also may cause costly repair work.
The most difficult decision after a storm isn’t specifically how to dispose of the trees that are definitely down, that’s pretty easy. The tougher possibility is whether or not some of the trees remaining upright are salvageable.
Various trees that have been partly affected in the storm may well pose a potential future threat and might need to be chopped down and disposed of to avoid placing people and property in danger in many months or even years in the future.
Other trees can be preserved by being pruned back, with their most damaged parts being ‘severed’ similar to how a surgeon would amputate a gangrenous limb. Others will need to be staked with guy wires or held up with various other supports up until they can re-develop the root system they need to have to stand on their own.
If a storm has caused trees to land on premises, our tree specialists can be trusted to get rid of the affected trees safely, quickly and efficiently to allow the construction crews easy access to the property to begin restorations on the damaged structures and power lines.

Different Sorts Of Storm Damage
Every one of these sorts of damage leads to an unique outlook for the trees’ long term survival, but making a prognosis is a job ideally entrusted to a fully certified arborist. An unqualified nonprofessional is far more liable to fail to notice a small detail that may differentiate one verdict from another, such as finding the splinters from a crown twist but missing the slight lean that indicates that the roots also failed.
There are generally 6 sorts of storm damage that a tree can’t typically sustain:
- Blowovers – this is where the full tree is uprooted.
- Stem Failures – this is where the trunk of the tree cracks above the ground, making the crown to fall or to angle strongly even though the bottom part continues to be standing normally.
- Root Failures – is when the root systems of the tree split underneath the ground, leading to the tree bending or swaying considerably.
- Branch Failures – is where several branches of the tree detach.
- Crown Twists – is when the trunk of the tree turns enough to split, but stays up. This occurs most typically on trees with extremely disproportionate crowns. The full crown effectively becomes a weathervane in a storm, twisting to follow the wind flow in a way that the trunk can not.
- Lightening Strikes – When lightening strikes the tree gets burned and electrocuted, but stays up, at the moment. 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 always at a substantially greater risk to drop even if it survived the original storm.
