Dealing With Trees Damaged In A Storm

Tree Removal Wombwell

Though they’re often taken as being solid and timeless, trees can end up being at risk in extreme weather like storms and strong winds. Fierce storms and high winds have been known to annihilate trees and rip even the sturdiest and healthiest trees out of the ground, sending them smashing to the ground, or onto neighbours’ gardens, power lines, vehicles, and buildings.

How many times following strong winds have you heard of dislodged branches and storm-damaged trees damaging property or blocking the road. Aside from the danger and inconvenience it also can lead to expensive repairs.

The toughest decision following a windstorm is not specifically how to deal with the trees that have definitely fallen down, that is more or less easy. The more difficult decision is whether any of the trees still upright are salvageable.

Various trees that have been partly damaged in the windstorm may well present a future threat and may have to be disassembled and took out to prevent placing people and property at risk in months or even years to come.

Other trees may be saved by being pruned back, with their worst affected sections being ‘severed’ much like how an operating surgeon would take off a gangrenous leg. Others might need to get staked down with guy cables or supported with additional supports until they are able to re-develop the root system they need to stand on their own.

If a windstorm has caused trees to land on premises, our tree professionals can be trusted to remove the broken trees safely, quickly and efficiently to allow the building and construction teams access to the property to start repairs on the affected structures and power cables.

Different Kinds Of Storm Damage

Tree Pruning DinningtonEach of these kinds of problem causes a different prognosis for the trees’ future survival, however forming a diagnosis is a task ideally left to a fully qualified arborist. An unqualified nonprofessional is much more liable to fail to notice a small detail that may well differentiate one decision from another, like seeing the splinters from a crown twist but missing the slight lean which shows 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 complete tree falls down.
  • Stem Failures – this is where the trunk of the tree splits above the earth, causing the trees crown to fall or sag strongly while the bottom section stays standing normally.
  • Root Failures – is when the root systems of the tree crack underneath the earth, leading to the tree bending or swaying dramatically.
  • Limb 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 standing. This takes place most typically on trees with very disproportionate crowns. The complete 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, at the moment. Lightening strikes have a number of 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 risk to drop despite the fact that it endured the original windstorm.
