Various Types Of Storm Damage

Tree Surgeons GrantonEach one of these types of problem leads to an unique outlook for the trees’ future survival, however forming a prognosis is a task ideally entrusted to a fully qualified arborist. An unqualified nonprofessional is much more likely to disregard a small detail that may separate one verdict from another, such as seeing the splinters from a crown twist but failing to see the slight lean which suggests that the roots also failed.

There are generally 6 kinds of storm damage which a tree can not typically sustain:

  • Blowovers – this is where the complete tree falls down.
  • Stem Failures – this is where the trunk of the tree breaks above the earth, making the crown to come down or to angle violently 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 swaying dramatically.
  • Limb Failures – is where several limbs of the tree break off.
  • Crown Twists – is where the trunk of the tree rotates enough to split, but stays up. This happens most often on trees with extremely lopsided crowns. The complete crown ultimately becomes a weather vane in a storm, twisting to follow the wind flow in a manner in which 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 including opening a large amount of surface area up to pests and vermin and massive water loss, so a tree hit by lightening is always at a very much greater risk to fall even if it made it through the original windstorm.
