Managing Storm Damaged Trees

{}Despite the fact that they’re usually taken as being really solid and timeless, trees can easily become vulnerable in adverse weather such as storms and strong winds. Violent storms and extreme winds have been seen to decimate trees and tear even the sturdiest and healthiest trees from the soil, sending them crashing to the ground, or onto power lines, buildings, neighbours’ gardens and vehicles.

How many times after a storm have you heard about dislodged branches and storm-damaged trees damaging property or blocking the road. Aside from the danger and inconvenience it also may lead to expensive repairs.

The toughest decision following a windstorm isn’t how to deal with the trees that have definitely fallen down, that’s more or less easy. The tougher possibility is if any of the trees left standing can be saved.

Some trees that have been in part affected in the storm might pose a potential future hazard and might need to be disassembled and disposed of to prevent placing property and people in danger in months or even years ahead.

Some other trees maybe conserved by being pruned back, with their most injured sections being ‘amputated’ similar to how an operating surgeon might take off a gangrenous limb. Some other may require to get staked with guy cables or held up with other supports up until they are able to re-develop the root structure they need to have to stand on their own.

Various Sorts Of Storm Damage

Every one of these sorts of problem results in a distinct prognosis for the trees’ long term survival, however forming a diagnosis is a job ideally left to a fully trained arborist. An unqualified nonprofessional is much more likely to overlook a small detail that may well differentiate one conclusion from another, such as observing the splinters from a crown twist but overlooking the slight lean which signifies that the roots also snapped.

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

  • Blowovers – these are where the entire tree is uprooted.
  • Stem Failures – this is where the trunk of the tree splits above the earth, causing the trees crown to fall or angle strongly whilst the lower section continues to be standing normally.
  • Root Failures – is where the root systems of the tree tear beneath the earth, leading to the tree pitching or swaying significantly.
  • Limb Failures – is where one or more branches of the tree fall off.
  • Crown Twists – is where the trunk of the tree rotates enough to split, but stays up. This happens most typically on trees with extremely lopsided crowns. The entire crown effectively transforms into a weathervane in a windstorm, twisting to follow the wind in a manner in which the trunk is unable to.
  • Lightening Hits – When lightening strikes the tree gets burned and electrocuted, but stays up, for now. Lightening hits have a lot of secondary 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 higher danger to fall despite the fact that it got through the initial storm.
