Storm Damage Prevention using Horticulture
Storm damage prevention and treatment: reducing damage from storms with preventive action using horticulture
Damage to trees from storms can be minimized by designing and implementing a tree management plan. Designing and executing a plan can help prevent problems. There is no doubt trees can cause damage and be damaged in storms. However, appropriately placed and well-maintained trees can help to reduce storm damage to structures by deflecting wind, as well as reduce damage to the tree itself. Appropriate actions include: proper placement and planting, structural pruning prior to the storm, and proper species selection. Actions in the weeks and years following a strong storm can help bring damaged trees back to health.
