Mother Nature can be quite temperamental in her weather extremes and Tennessee is often a prime target for her fury. The mixture of warm, slow-moving air combines with the high-pressure system coming up from the Gulf of Mexico to create dangerous down drafts and tornado-like winds. As a result, Mister Tree is usually the first to be found on roadways performing storm/wind damage work.
Why do trees take such a beating in the storms? The answer is a combination of factors:
  • The soil – The condition of the soil as a base for the tree and the root system plays a huge part in the stability of the tree. If the soil is shallow, dry, or unstable then the tree suffers.
  • The condition of the tree – If the tree is not healthy, it very likely won’t need much help to fall.
  • The company of the tree – Trees nestled together in a copse stand a much better chance of withstanding the winds since the roots interlock and support one another. Stand-alone trees often are the ones to fall.
