Dealing With Storm Damaged Trees
Despite the fact they’re usually taken as being really solid and permanent, trees can come to be at risk in extreme weather such as 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 about dislodged branches & storm-damaged trees blocking the road or damaging property. Apart from the inconvenience & danger it also can cause 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 tougher decision is if any of the trees still upright are salvageable.
Various trees that have been partly affected in the windstorm may well present a potential future threat and may need to be disassembled and removed to prevent putting people and property in danger in many months or even years to come.
Some 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. Some other might need to get staked with guy ropes or supported with additional supports up until they can re-develop the root structure they need to stand on their own.
If a windstorm has caused trees to land on buildings, our tree professionals can be trusted to remove the broken trees efficiently, safely and quickly to allow the building companies easy access to the property to begin restorations 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, but forming a diagnosis is a job ideally left to a fully trained arborist. An unqualified nonprofessional is far more liable to miss a small detail that may well separate one verdict from another, such as seeing the splinters from a crown twist but missing the slight lean that suggests that the roots also failed.
There are generally 6 types of storm damage that a tree can’t usually 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 break underneath the earth, leading to the tree pitching or swinging 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 becomes a weather vane in a windstorm, turning to follow the wind flow in a manner in which 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.
