Dealing With Storm Damaged Trees
Though they’re typically taken as being really strong and permanent, trees can come to be at risk in extreme weather like storms & strong winds. Fierce storms and very high winds have been known to annihilate trees and tear even the sturdiest and healthiest trees from the ground, sending them plunging to the ground, or onto neighbours’ gardens, power lines, vehicles, and buildings.
How many times following a storm have you heard of dislodged branches & storm-damaged trees damaging property or blocking the road. Aside from the danger and inconvenience it also can lead to costly repairs.
The most difficult decision following a windstorm is not specifically how to deal with the trees that are definitely down, that is more or less easy. The more challenging decision is if any of the trees still upright can be saved.
Various trees that have been partly affected in the windstorm may well present a potential future threat and may have to be disassembled and removed to prevent putting people and property in danger in many months or even years to come.
Other trees might be preserved by being pruned back, with their worst damaged sections being ‘severed’ much like how a surgeon would take off a gangrenous limb. Others might need to get staked with guy ropes or supported with additional supports until they can re-develop the root structure they have to have to stand on their own.
If a storm has caused trees to land on buildings, our tree professionals can be trusted to get rid of the broken trees efficiently, quickly and safely to allow the building teams easy access to the property to begin repairs on the affected structures and power cables.

Different Kinds Of Storm Damage
Each of these kinds of damage creates a varied prognosis for the trees’ future survival, however forming a diagnosis is a task ideally entrusted to a fully qualified arborist. An unqualified nonprofessional is far more liable to overlook a small detail that may well differentiate one verdict from another, like seeing the splinters from a crown twist but missing the slight lean which suggests that the roots also failed.
There are generally 6 types of storm damage which a tree can’t normally sustain:
- Blowovers – this is 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 to sag strongly while the bottom section continues to be standing normally.
- Root Failures – is where the root systems of the tree crack underneath the earth, leading to the tree pitching or swaying considerably.
- Branch Failures – is where one or more limbs of the tree detach.
- Crown Twists – is where the trunk of the tree rotates enough to split, but stays standing. This takes place most typically on trees with extremely disproportionate crowns. The entire crown essentially transforms into a weather vane in a windstorm, turning to follow the wind flow in a way that the trunk is unable to.
- Lightening Strikes – When lightening strikes the tree gets burned and electrocuted, but stays standing, for now. Lightening strikes have a several additional effects such as 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 greater danger to drop despite the fact that it got through the original windstorm.
