6 Tips On What To Do After A Storm Has Damaged Your Trees

This section paraphrases the advice given the article Tree First Aid After A Storm by Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the USDA Forest Service and the International Society of Arboriculture

Doing the right things after trees have been damaged can make the difference between giving your trees a good chance of survival and losing them unnecessarily. The Arbor Day Foundation urges home and property owners to follow a few simple rules in administering tree first aid after a storm:

  1. Don’t try to do it all yourself – use a professional Tree Service
  2. Take safety precautions. Be on the alert for downed powerlines or branches that are hanging or look like they are ready to fall.
  3. Remove any broken branches still attached to the tree.  Removing the jagged remains of smaller sized broken limbs is one common repair that property owners can make after a storm.  Again, leave the larger more dangerous items for the professionals.
  4. Repair torn bark.  To improve the tree’s appearance and eliminate hiding places for insects, carefully use a chisel or sharp knife to smooth the ragged edges of wounds where the bark has been torn away. 
  5. Resist the urge to over prune.  Remember that improper trimming can damage and even kill your tree.  So, don’t worry if the appearance is not perfect.  The new foliage with return as long as the tree is healthy. 
  6. Don’t top your trees! Untrained individuals may urge you to cut back all of the branches, on the mistaken assumption that reducing the length of branches will help avoid breakage in future storms.
