Managing Storm Damaged Trees

Tree Removal Bonaly Although they’re often viewed as being really durable and permanent, trees may come to be defenceless in adverse weather such as strong winds and storms. Powerful storms and very high winds have been seen to decimate trees and tear even the healthiest and sturdiest trees out of the ground, sending them smashing to the ground, or onto power lines, buildings, neighbours’ gardens and vehicles. How many times following a storm have you heard about dislodged branches and storm-damaged trees blocking the road or damaging property. In addition to the inconvenience and danger it additionally may cause costly repairs. The toughest decision after a storm isn’t specifically how to dispose of the trees that have definitely fallen down, that’s pretty straightforward. The more difficult possibility is whether or not some of the trees remaining upright can be saved. Certain trees that have been moderately affected in the windstorm may pose a potential threat and might have to be cut down and took out to prevent putting people & property in danger in several months or even years ahead. Some other trees might be preserved by being pruned back, with their most damaged sections being ‘severed’ similar to how a surgeon may take off a gangrenous limb. Others will need to get staked with guy wires or supported with various other supports up until they can re-develop the root structure they need to stand on their own.

Different Types Of Storm Damage

Tree Surgeons GrantonAll of these kinds of damage leads to an unique outlook for the trees’ future survival, however forming a diagnosis is a task ideally entrusted to a fully certified arborist. An unqualified nonprofessional is much more likely to overlook a small detail that may separate one decision from another, like seeing the splinters from a crown twist but failing to see the slight lean which suggests that the roots also snapped.

There are generally 6 kinds of storm damage which a tree can’t generally sustain:

  • Blowovers – this is where the complete tree is uprooted.
  • Stem Failures – this is where the trunk of the tree breaks above the earth, making the crown to come down or to angle strongly whilst the bottom section stays standing normally.
  • Root Failures – is where the root systems of the tree tear beneath the earth, leading to the tree leaning or swinging noticeably.
  • Branch Failures – is where several limbs of the tree break off.
  • Crown Twists – is where the trunk of the tree rotates enough to splinter, but stays standing. This happens most often on trees with extremely lopsided crowns. The complete crown ultimately becomes 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 standing, at the moment. Lightening strikes have a lot of 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 typically at a substantially greater risk to fall even if it survived the original windstorm.
