Dealing With Storm Damaged Trees

Tree Contractors Formby

Though they’re often considered as being really solid 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 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. In addition to the inconvenience and danger it also may result in costly repair work.

The most difficult option after a windstorm 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.

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 placing people and property in danger in 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 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 land on buildings, our tree specialists 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 affected structures and power lines.

Different Sorts Of Storm Damage

Arborist MaghullTree Felling MaghullEvery one of these sorts of damage leads to a different 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 likely to fail to notice a small detail that may differentiate one verdict from another, such as finding the splinters from a crown twist but failing to see the slight lean that indicates that the roots also snapped.

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 violently while the bottom part continues to be standing normally.
  • Root Failures – is when the root systems of the tree split below 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 turns enough to split, but stays up. This happens most typically on trees with extremely disproportionate crowns. The full crown essentially becomes a weathervane in a windstorm, 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 lightening-hit tree is always at a substantially greater risk to drop even if it survived the original storm.
