Dealing With Trees Damaged In A Storm

Tree Surgeon OldhamEven though they’re generally viewed as being sturdy and permanent, trees can easily become vulnerable in extreme weather conditions like storms and strong winds. Intense storms and extreme winds have been known to wipe out trees and rip even the healthiest and sturdiest trees from the soil, sending them plunging to the earth, or onto neighbours’ gardens, power lines, vehicles, and buildings.

How many times after strong winds have you heard about dislodged branches & storm-damaged trees damaging property or blocking the road. Apart from the inconvenience and danger it additionally will lead to costly renovations.

The hardest decision following a windstorm is not how to deal with the trees that are definitely down, that is pretty easy. The tougher possibility is whether or not any of the trees left upright are salvageable.

Some trees that have been moderately affected in the storm might pose a future risk and might need to be disassembled and removed to avoid placing people and property in danger in many months or even years to come.

Other trees maybe preserved by being pruned back, with their most affected sections being ‘cut off’ just like how an operating surgeon might take off a gangrenous leg. Others will need to get staked with guy cables or supported with various other supports up until they are able to re-develop the root structure they require to stand on their own.

Various Kinds Of Storm Damage

Each one of these sorts of damage results in a distinct outlook for the trees’ potential survival, but forming a diagnosis is a job ideally left to a fully trained arborist. An unqualified nonprofessional is far more likely to overlook a small detail that may well differentiate one decision from another, such as finding the splinters from a crown twist but overlooking the slight lean which shows that the roots also snapped.

There are basically 6 sorts of storm damage which a tree can not typically endure:

  • Blowovers – these are where the whole tree is uprooted.
  • Stem Failures – this is where the trunk of the tree cracks above the soil, causing the crown to fall or lean strongly whilst the lower part stays standing normally.
  • Root Failures – is where the root systems of the tree tear underneath the soil, resulting in the tree leaning or swaying significantly.
  • Branch Failures – is where several branches of the tree break off.
  • Crown Twists – is where the trunk of the tree turns enough to split, but stays up. This happens most commonly on trees with extremely disproportionate crowns. The whole crown basically becomes a weathervane in a windstorm, turning to follow the wind flow in a way that the trunk can not.
  • Lightening Hits – When lightening strikes the tree gets burned and electrocuted, but stays up, at the moment. Lightening strikes have a number of secondary 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 considerably higher risk to fall despite the fact that it got through the initial storm.
