Various Sorts Of Storm Damage
All of these types of problem leads to an unique prognosis for the trees’ long term survival, however forming a prognosis is a task ideally left to a fully trained arborist. An unqualified nonprofessional is far more going to miss a small detail that might differentiate one decision from another, such as observing the splinters from a crown twist but missing the slight lean which suggests that the roots also snapped.
There are essentially 6 forms of storm damage which a tree can not typically sustain:
- Blowovers – these are where the full tree comes down.
- Stem Failures – this is where the trunk of the tree splits above the earth, causing the trees crown to come down or to sag strongly whilst the lower section continues to be standing normally.
- Root Failures – is when the root systems of the tree break below the earth, leading to the tree leaning or swaying significantly.
- Limb Failures – is where several branches of the tree break off.
- Crown Twists – is when the trunk of the tree rotates enough to splinter, but stays standing. This occurs most frequently on trees with very lopsided crowns. The full crown effectively transforms into a weathervane in a storm, twisting to follow the wind in a way that the trunk can not.
- Lightening Hits – When lightening strikes the tree gets burned and electrocuted, but stays standing, for now. Lightening strikes have a number of secondary effects including 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 substantially higher danger to drop even if it endured the initial storm.
