Tree Lighting Protection Services
Lightning is one great example of how disastrous nature can be. Besides the obvious property damage and fire-starting potential, lightning strikes are the second leading cause of weather-related deaths in the U.S.
About one-third of the lightning-related deaths in the U.S. occur near unprotected trees. A person doesn’t even need to be in direct contact with a struck tree to be impacted.
Trees can be irreversibly damaged and even killed from lightning strikes. Certified Arborists from reputable tree services recommend installing lightning protection in trees that are potential targets to lessen the impacts of lightning damage to nearby people and structures. However, they will not eliminate the potential of the tree itself being damaged.
Tree lightning protection systems are relatively unnoticeable, do not injure trees when installed, and also have proven to be very reliable to alleviate concerns of collateral damage.
