Managing Storm Damaged Trees

York tree damaged by lightening

Even though they are generally seen as being sturdy and everlasting, trees can easily end up being at risk in extreme weather such as strong winds & storms. Violent storms and very high winds have been known to decimate trees and uplift even the sturdiest and healthiest trees out of the soil, sending them smashing to the ground, or onto power lines, buildings, neighbours’ gardens and vehicles.

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

The hardest decision following a storm is not specifically how to deal with the trees that are definitely down, that is pretty straightforward. The more difficult possibility is whether any of the trees left standing are salvageable.

Various trees that have been in part injured in the windstorm might pose a future risk and may well need to be chopped down and took out to prevent putting people and property at risk in several months or years to come.

Some other trees could be saved by being trimmed back, with their most cracked parts being ‘amputated’ just like how an operating surgeon may amputate a gangrenous limb. Others may require to get staked down with guy wires or held up with other supports up until they can re-develop the root system they need to stand on their own.

Various Types Of Storm Damage

tree uprooted after a storm YorkEach one of these kinds of problem results in a different diagnosis for the trees’ long term survival, however forming a diagnosis is a job ideally entrusted to a fully trained arborist. An unqualified nonprofessional is far more going to overlook a small detail that could differentiate one conclusion from another, such as noticing the splinters from a crown twist but failing to see the slight lean that reveals that the roots also snapped.

There are generally 6 sorts of storm damage that a tree can’t normally endure:

  • Blowovers – this is where the whole tree is uprooted.
  • Stem Failures – this is where the trunk of the tree cracks above the ground, leading to the crown to fall or to angle strongly even though the bottom part continues to be standing normally.
  • Root Failures – is when the roots of the tree tear beneath the ground, leading to the tree pitching or swinging significantly.
  • Branch Failures – is where several limbs of the tree fall off.
  • Crown Twists – is when the trunk of the tree rotates enough to splinter, but stays up. This takes place most frequently on trees with very lopsided crowns. The whole crown essentially turns into a weather vane in a storm, twisting to follow the wind flow in a manner in which the trunk can’t.
  • Lightening Strikes – When lightening strikes the tree gets burned and electrocuted, but stays up, at the moment. Lightening hits have a several additional effects including massive water loss and opening a large amount of surface area up to pests and vermin, so a lightening-hit tree is always at a much increased danger to drop even though it got through the initial windstorm.
