Help Your Trees Bounce Back from Storm Damage

July 29th, 2020 · No Comments

Extreme heat, extreme cold, and during these last months of summer, extreme storms are all part of the Minnesota living experience. For Winona, MN, tree owners, such extreme weather can mean sudden, unexpected storm damage that leaves their trees injured or damaged beyond repair. However, storm damage doesn’t have to be a death sentence for any of your trees. With effective first aid, tree health can be preserved even after storm damage occurs. Maier Tree and Lawn’s tree health professionals can help you take action and start your trees on their road to recovery.

Storm damage to your trees can come in many forms, ranging from mild to severe. Sometimes hail and wind just knock some branches loose or shake some leaves to the ground, but in more extreme cases, you may be dealing with extensive tree injuries. Major damage to the tree trunk, large amounts of snapped or loose branches, or even uprooting can be consequences of intense weather. Yet, even if the damage looks deadly at first glance, you should know that it’s always a good idea to request a tree health consultation for a professional opinion. Depending on the type of tree in question and its condition prior to the storm, the tree still may be salvaged and restored to health.

Trees are more resilient than most people tend to realize. There are, of course, conditions that render them more vulnerable, but once they are grown and healthy, they can withstand a lot of what Mother Nature has to offer. If your tree was healthy prior to a storm occurring, it will more likely bounce back from minor storm damage. But it’s important to remember that without professional expertise, trying to treat a storm damaged tree on your own can result in further injuries to the tree—and maybe even yourself.

Minor tree injuries can sometimes heal without intervention, and trimming or sawing when it’s not needed can cause a tree undue stress. Plus, damaged trees can pose a physical hazard due to their heavy, unstable branches falling or their risk of tipping. If any of your trees were injured during a storm, our tree health professionals can help.

Our tree health experts examine each storm damaged tree, determine the best course of action, and employ appropriate measures and first aid in order to preserve the health of your trees for as long as possible. First aid may include careful, precise trunk cutting; stabilization’ strategic trimming; and more. But regardless of the steps needed, the health of your trees and the safety of your property are our primary goals.
