Dealing With Storm Damaged Trees
Though they’re often considered as being strong and permanent, trees can certainly come to be at risk in extreme weather such as strong winds and storms. Powerful storms and very high winds have been known to annihilate trees and uplift even the healthiest & sturdiest trees from the ground, 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. In addition to the inconvenience & danger it also may cause costly repair work.
The most difficult option following a windstorm isn’t how to dispose of the trees that are definitely down, that is pretty easy. The tougher possibility is whether or not any of the trees remaining standing are salvageable.
Certain trees that have been partly affected in the storm may well pose a potential future threat and might need to be chopped down and took away to avoid putting people and property in danger in months or even years in the future.
Other trees might be preserved by being trimmed back, with their most damaged parts being ‘severed’ similar to how an operating surgeon would amputate a gangrenous limb. Others will need to be staked with guy wires or supported with additional 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 fall on buildings, our tree experts can be relied upon to take away the injured trees safely, quickly and efficiently to allow the construction crews 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 causes a different outlook for the trees’ long term survival, but forming a prognosis is a job best entrusted to a fully certified arborist. An unqualified amateur is far more likely to disregard a small detail that may separate one verdict from another, such as finding the splinters from a crown twist but failing to see the slight lean that shows that the roots also snapped.
There are generally 6 sorts of storm damage that a tree can’t typically stand up to:
- 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 while the bottom part continues to be standing normally.
- Root Failures – is when the root systems of the tree split beneath the ground, leading to the tree bending or swaying considerably.
- Limb Failures – is where one or more branches of the tree detach.
- Crown Twists – is when the trunk of the tree rotates enough to split, but stays standing. This happens most typically on trees with extremely unbalanced crowns. The full crown essentially becomes a weathervane in a windstorm, turning 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 standing, 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 lightening-hit tree is always at a substantially greater risk to drop even if it endured the original storm.
