Storms are a fact of life here in Florida. Between the months of June through November we can experience tornadoes and hurricanes and can see a lot of lightning. Many times trees are damaged and actually destroyed in these storms.
If you have "split trunks", which means the whole tree is split down the middle, that kind of damage is the highest level of damage next to the tree lying on the ground with its roots in the air! If you want to know if the tree can be saved, a good question to ask would be: What percentage of your crown, what percentage of the tree that produces leaves is actually left? If more than 50 percent of the crown is damaged, it would be wise to consider taking that tree out of your landscape.
This method of thinking involves keeping up with problems before they become serious problems. If there is a large tree limb that is broken, damaged or dead it should be taken down immediately to prevent further damage to something else. During storms, this potential problem could become a health risk to whoever is in the wrong place at the wrong time. Preventive maintenance is a good way to save money by simply doing what is needed to cut unnecessary spending …like paying someone to remove a tree limb off your car, boat or house.
During the 2004 storm season, our storm damage cleanup teams stayed very busy removing trees that were damaged or blown down as a result of hurricane winds or lightning strike. This type of work is extremely hazardous and should be left to a skilled professional. Tree removal is unpredictable even in the best scenario, but after a storm the smallest tree job can become out-right dangerous!
