Lightning Damage

Can A Tree Survive A Lightning Strike?

A tree’s ability to recover after a lightning strike depends on the tree’s:

  • Species
  • Health
  • Moisture levels
  • The lightning’s power

In some cases, lightning wounds will heal themselves over time. More severe gashes in the trunk leave the tree vulnerable to harsh weather or insect and disease entrance, which can lead to tree decline.

A certified arborist can share their expert opinion on the health of a tree and perform an in-depth tree risk assessment.

Lightning Protection

How To Prepare Your Trees For A Storm

Heavy snow, freezing rain, lightning, high winds or a combination of any of these severe weather outbreaks can stress your trees.

Proper tree maintenance can reduce damage to your trees and property and maximize your safety, including:

  • Preventative pruning
  • Mulching
  • Lightning protection
  • Watch for cavities
