Professional, Affordable Lightning Protection Services
It takes years to grow a large tree, but it takes only seconds for lightning to cut one down. Unfortunately, many trees hit by lightning eventually die. For some, the damage is visible in the form of cuts of missing bark on branches or trunks. On others, the damage is done to the roots and soon appears in the form of dying leaves.
Before we begin, we’ll assess the existing trees on your property and figure out the extent of lighting damage. This allows our skilled arborists to determine if we can salvage the tree with rod installation.
If possible, we’ll suggest the next steps to protecting your tree from further lightning damage. Our expert arborists will walk you through every step.
Seamless Lightning Rod Installation
We offer lightning protection systems that can minimize the risk of damage to your trees from a strike. Our systems use copper pieces connected to a ground rod to reduce tree damage and conduct an electrical charge to the earth. Copper rod systems are known to protect trees, and they reduce the risk of lightning striking nearby structures.
With our services, you can be sure your trees are protected from potential damage caused by lightning. Regular maintenance of lightning protection systems can prevent stress, as well as potential erosion.
Before we go, we’ll make sure your tree is secured in the event of another storm with cabling and bracing. We’ll implement safety measures to the rest of your property if needed or get rid of any remaining hazards that might attract lightning.
