Various Types Of Storm Damage

Tree Surgeons GrantonEach one of these types of problem causes an unique outlook for the trees’ future survival, however forming a prognosis is a job ideally entrusted to a fully qualified arborist. An unqualified nonprofessional is much more likely to disregard a small detail that could separate one verdict from another, such as noticing the splinters from a crown twist but missing the slight lean which indicates that the roots also snapped.

There are essentially 6 kinds of storm damage which a tree can not usually sustain:

  • Blowovers – these are where the entire tree falls down.
  • Stem Failures – this is where the trunk of the tree splits above the earth, making the crown to come down or to angle violently while the bottom section stays standing normally.
  • Root Failures – is where the root systems of the tree tear beneath the earth, leading to the tree bending or swaying dramatically.
  • 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 up. This occurs most often on trees with extremely lopsided crowns. The entire crown essentially becomes a weather vane in a storm, turning to follow the wind flow in a way that the trunk is unable to.
  • Lightening Strikes – When lightening strikes the tree gets burned and electrocuted, but stays up, at the moment. Lightening strikes have a number of additional effects such as opening a large amount of surface area up to pests and vermin and massive water loss, so a tree hit by lightening is typically at a considerably greater danger to drop even if it made it through the initial windstorm.
