Identify and Manage Hazardous Tree Defects and Tree Damage
Posted on: December 1,2013
High-risk defects are signs of tree failure. Look for seven important tree defects: dead wood, cracks, weak branch unions, decay, cankers, root problems, and poor tree form. These tree defects will be described in the next several sections. Remember: a tree with defects is not hazardous unless some portion of it is within striking distance of a target.
• #1- Dead wood: Dead trees and branches are unpredictable and can break and fall at any time. Dead wood is often dry and brittle and cannot bend in the wind like a living tree or branch. A dead branch and treetop that is already broken off (“hanger” or “widow maker”) is especially dangerous.
