What to Do if Your Trees Are Storm Damaged

After a storm, resist the urge to begin cleaning up before inspecting your trees for damage! Determine the type of storm that occurred, the conditions it presented, the commonplace kinds of damage such storms cause, and whether your trees were affected. Then, call a knowledgeable tree care service.

If you notice one or more trees have suffered some damage, consult an expert arborist to assess the scene. A tree you may deem damaged beyond repair could be saved by a skilled tree care specialist. Avoid making conclusions about trees’ fates before consulting professionals and determining what restorative measures they can implement.

The team at Timber Works can thoroughly inspect and address your storm-damaged trees. With prompt, attentive care, even severely damaged trees can recover. Moreover, we can remove all trees deemed unfit for revival and protect the rest of your trees from falling limbs, infection, and infestation.

Our Approach to Storm-Damaged Trees

Tree storm damage repair from Timber Works

On a storm-damage-response job, the Timber Works team first conducts a complete tree inspection service. We determine the extent of the tree damage from storm conditions. We then decide whether the affected tree should be saved or removed depending on the damage’s severity, the surrounding property, and the tree’s structural integrity.

If we determine that a tree can recover, we apply remedial tree pruning to remove damaged, dead, or otherwise problematic limbs. Doing so prevents falling branches, structural weakness, abnormal growth patterns, and the further spread of pests or diseases. After an initial pruning and several checkups, you can expect the tree to flourish.

If we deem a tree beyond saving, we remove it altogether. Although a difficult decision for landowners, tree removal is a last-resort effort to protect the surrounding property. Fortunately, Timber Works utilizes industry-leading safety and efficiency measures to remove hazardous trees and debris, leaving your property unscathed.

How to Protect Your Trees from Storm Damage

Beyond removing hazardous trees and branches, you can use a few preventative measures to protect your trees from storm damage:

  • Preventative pruning: Routine pruning helps to prevent storms from damaging trees. A thinner tree crown gives winds less surface area to catch and push. Moreover, preventative pruning removes the most exposed branches that may become dangerous in severe storm conditions.


  • Regular inspection and care: Carefully inspect and care for your trees. Keep track of their growth, wounds, decay, or other outstanding symptoms. Concerning signs may prove vulnerable to storms and point to issues like infection or infestation.


  • Professional mulching: Mulch serves as root protection from man-made wounds—from lawnmowers, weed whackers, and otherwise—and severe weather conditions such as storms and freezing temperatures. That said, forestry mulching allows trees the space and time to grow strong roots and avoid toppling during storms.
