Many trees are damaged throughout the year by windstorms, extremely cold weather, ice, snow accumalation, lightning, other mechanical sources such as vehicles, and vandalism. The type of damage usually consists of broken branches. However, more severe damage such as the splitting or pulling apart of branch forks, removal of large areas of bark, twisting and splitting of the trunk or even uprooting may occur. These injuries to your tree can result in a change of appearance of the tree, and will increase it''s susceptibility to a subsequent insect or disease attack. It is important that any damage to a tree is properly checked, treated and repaired to maintain the health of the tree. As with other aspects of Tree Care, it is advisable that damaged and dangerous trees are treated by the services of a tree specialist, particularly with regard to this type of work and the possible need for extensive bracing, cabling or removal of large branches being required. More often damage is relatively minor with only the smallest branches of the tree being injured. However, tree owners should be aware that both small amounts and large amounts of damage can result in further disease and deterisation of the tree at a later date. If trees are cared for after this type of damage correctly, there is a much more increased chance that the tree can continue to live a healthy life and mature without risk. The tree could require a general clean up and removal of broken branches and twigs, and possibly further light pruning to restore it''s shape.
