Help protect your trees from lightning damage through the installation of a lightning protection system. Better knowledge of how lightning interacts with trees has led to technological advances in protection.
Davey’s lightning protection system is innovative in the use of heavier copper cable and innovative hardware that pushes the conductor cable away from the trunk as the tree grows to prevent embedding. We also use a fuse attached to the conductor cable that provides a critical measurement function, allowing arborists to know when a lightning strike has taken place so that the system can be fully inspected for damage.
Watch this quick video with ISA Board Certified Master Arborist and Davey expert R.J. Laverne about how lightning protection systems can protect your trees.
