Managing Storm Damaged Trees

Even though they are generally taken as being really strong and permanent, trees may end up being at risk in adverse weather conditions like storms and strong winds. Fierce storms and high winds have been known to decimate trees and rip even the healthiest and sturdiest trees from the soil, sending them smashing to the ground, or onto buildings, power lines, vehicles and neighbours’ gardens.

How many times shortly after strong winds have you heard about storm-damaged trees & dislodged branches damaging property or blocking the road. In addition to the inconvenience & danger it also can cause expensive repair work.

The hardest decision after a storm is not how to get rid of the trees that have definitely fallen down, that is more or less straightforward. The harder possibility is whether some of the trees left upright are salvageable.

Various trees that have been in part affected in the storm may pose a potential future hazard and may need to be disassembled and took out to avoid placing people & property at risk in several months or years ahead.

Other trees could be preserved by being pruned back, with their most affected parts being ‘amputated’ just like how a surgeon would amputate a gangrenous leg. Some other will require to get staked with guy ropes or supported with additional supports until they can re-develop the root structure they require to stand on their own.

Various Kinds Of Storm Damage

Tree Surgeons WigtonEach of these kinds of damage results in an unique prognosis for the trees’ long term survival, however forming a diagnosis is a task best entrusted to a fully certified arborist. An unqualified amateur is much more liable to overlook a small detail that may well differentiate one conclusion from another, such as noticing the splinters from a crown twist but missing the slight lean which reveals that the roots also snapped.

There are basically 6 sorts of storm damage which a tree can not usually stand up to:

  • Blowovers – these are where the whole tree is uprooted.
  • Stem Failures – this is where the trunk of the tree cracks above the earth, making the trees crown to fall or to sag violently even though the bottom part continues to be standing normally.
  • Root Failures – is when the root systems of the tree crack beneath the earth, resulting in the tree pitching or swinging dramatically.
  • Branch Failures – is where one or more limbs of the tree break off.
  • Crown Twists – is when the trunk of the tree turns enough to split, but stays up. This occurs most typically on trees with highly unbalanced crowns. The whole crown ultimately transforms into a weather vane 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 up, for now. 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 tree hit by lightening is typically at a very much increased risk to fall even if it survived the initial storm.
