Storm Damage to an Ash Tree

Storm damage 1 Storm damage - branch reduction Storm damage 3 Storm damage - fence safe, plus some firewood!

These photos show a fairly common scenario we deal with. A client near Stonehaven called to say that one of his trees had failed in a storm and was hung up in a neighbouring tree.

We came out to site and assessed the tree, an ash. Major stem decay had weakened the tree resulting in failure. The client wanted the tree made safe without damaging the tree it was hung up in or the fence below. By using an anchor point high in the second tree we were able to rig a lowering line to the failed tree and after some careful branch reductions we slowly lowered the stem without damaging the fence. Another satisfied client.

It is worth noting that prevention is better than cure and if the tree hed been assessed earlier the storm failure could have been avoided. Please contact us if you would like a tree assessment or tree report..
