Taking Care Of Trees Damaged In A Storm
Despite the fact they are usually considered as being solid and permanent, trees can certainly become vulnerable in extreme weather like strong winds and storms. Powerful storms and very high winds have been known to annihilate trees and tear even the healthiest & sturdiest trees from the ground, sending them plunging to the ground, or onto neighbours’ gardens, power lines, vehicles, and buildings.
How many times after strong winds have you heard about storm-damaged trees and dislodged branches damaging property or blocking the road. In addition to the inconvenience and danger it also can result in costly repair work.
The most difficult option after a storm is not specifically how to deal with the trees that are definitely down, that is pretty much easy. The tougher possibility is whether any of the trees still standing can be saved.
Certain trees that have been in part affected in the storm may pose a future threat and may need to be disassembled and took out to prevent putting people & property in danger in months or years in the future.
Other trees can be conserved by being trimmed back, with their most damaged sections being ‘severed’ similar to how a surgeon may take off a gangrenous limb. Others might need to get staked with guy ropes or supported with various other supports up until they can re-develop the root system they need to stand on their own.

Different Sorts Of Storm Damage
Each one of these sorts of damage leads to a different outlook for the trees’ potential survival, however forming a prognosis is a task ideally entrusted to a fully certified arborist. An unqualified nonprofessional is far more liable to miss a small detail that may separate one verdict from another, like noticing the splinters from a crown twist but overlooking the slight lean that indicates that the roots also failed.
There are generally six forms of storm damage that a tree can not normally sustain:
- Blowovers – these are where the entire tree comes down.
- Stem Failures – this is where the trunk of the tree cracks above the earth, making the trees crown to fall or bend strongly whilst the bottom section continues to be standing normally.
- Root Failures – is when the root systems of the tree tear below the earth, leading to the tree pitching or swinging significantly.
- Branch Failures – is where one or more limbs of the tree detach.
- Crown Twists – is when the trunk of the tree rotates enough to split, but stays up. This takes place most typically on trees with extremely lopsided crowns. The entire crown basically becomes a weathervane in a storm, 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 lot 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 much greater risk to drop despite the fact that it survived the original storm.
