What To Do If A Storm Damaged My Tree?

During Storm Season your trees will face heavy rains, strong gusts of wind, and lightning. As a result, you may notice significant damage to your trees once the storm passes.

Once you notice storm damage to your trees, even if its light or severe, it becomes a hazard for you and your property. The best way to reduce the risk of an accident from your damaged tree is to contact an emergency tree service

After speaking to your local emergency tree service, an estimator will be sent to inspect the damage to your tree. In addition, they can suggest the best way to repair the tree or if necessary to remove the tree.

Repairing Storm Damaged Trees

Now that you have identified damage to your trees, you may want to fix the issue yourself. However, working with damaged trees is extremely dangerous and can lead to personal injuries and collateral damage. 

For this reason we recommend contacting a certified arborist and professional tree service to take care of the problem for you. A professional arborist can help you identify if the damage to your tree can lead to falling limbs or even splitting the tree trunk.


How to Fix A Tree With Broken Limbs

  1. Trim and Prune all broken or weak branches on your damaged tree. 
  2. Focus on the bottom of your tree canopy with trimming and prunning.
  3. When pruning broken limbs make sure to prune them all the way to the tree trunk.
  4. If the damage is high in the trees canopy or is a very large tree limb, contact a professional arborist with experience in removal. 

How To save A Tree That Has Split

  1. Small Splits on branches can a natural occurrence and will most likely heal on its own. 
  2. When a tree limb has a deep cut but has not split you can help the healing processes by smoothing out the bark in the area.
  3. Splits in large branches or the trees trunk is a severe problem and will take a lot of work to save. If your tree has split it is now time to contact an arborist and implement more aggressive methods like tree cabling and bracing

What To Do If My Trees Canopy Has Been Damaged

  1. Do not remove the top of a trees canopy as it will alter the structure of the tree and produce unnatural growth.
  2. Inspect the canopy and how determine how much of the trees crown is still intact.
  3. If you see that 50% of your trees canopy is still intact, then a professional tree trimming service to help maintain your tree while it heals itself. 
  4. If you see that 50% of your trees canopy is missing you many need to contact a tree removal expert to help you safely remove your storm damaged tree.

I highly recommend this company. We had a ton of trees and old shrubs around our home and interviewed many companies to help us out. Timber wood was efficient, wonderful to deal with, and all in all did a fantastic job perfecting my landscaping. On top of doing a great job, they also priced out less than others which is always a plus!!! Give them a call! You will be a very satisfied customer!
