After a lightning strike on your property, you may find oneA healthy tree is damaged or killed.Installing lightning protection on trees that are most vulnerable to lightning strikes can protect your trees and limit the chances of lightning strikes in nearby areas.The most effective form of lightning protection for trees is to use the copper wire attached to the top of the tree to guide the Lightning from the tree to the grounding bar buried nearby.Trees that grow on top of a mountain or near a water body are most vulnerable to lightning strikes.Lightning is also more likely to hit a tree that is higher than other trees or buildings around it.Trees that grow on the edge of the Bush or next to the street are also vulnerable to lightning strikes.If there are no higher terrain features around, trees that grow separately in the open area usually attract lightning strikes.The National Fire Protection Association also recommends lightning protection for trees growing within 10 feet of the building to eliminate potential fire hazards.Lightning strikes can break the main branches and tear off the bark of the trunk.The breakdown of the trunk and branches will structurally weaken a tree, make it more susceptible to wind damage and shorten its life.The lightning that hits your tree will pass through the sap of the tree and cause damage to the camping tree.Extensive damage to the cambrium of the tree can prevent it from moving nutrients throughout the tree, and even if there is no obvious damage on the tree, it can lead to rapid decline and death.Heavy use of lightning protection-Measure the copper wire to keep the Lightning off the tree and enter the grounding bar or board buried near the tree.The best wire type for lightning protection is 17-Copper wire attached to the tree is measured using copper fasteners and coupler.In most cases, the grounding bar is copper.Composite steel bars at least 8 feet long and 1/2 in diameter.Can not accommodate 8-Foot sticks, you can use at least three-The area is 2 square feet inches a few percent thick.The correct installation of lightning protection on the big tree requires climbing the top of the tree to understand the lightning protection system.In most cases, this potentially dangerous job is best left to qualified tree experts with ANSI certification, as well as the training and safety equipment needed to safely complete the job.Trees protected by lightning protection systems do not provide safe shelters for people or pets during lightning strikes.Lightning protection systems installed on rapidly growing trees require annual inspections and regular maintenance to ensure they remain in normal working condition.For slower-growing trees, only one check is required every two to three years.
