Lightning Protection

International Society of Arboriculture, E. Thomas Smiley, A. William Graham Jr, and Scott Cullen

Trees sometimes get hit by lightning, and the damage is usually terminal.

If you have a tall, significant, or favorite tree that you do not want to lose, we can install lightning protection to prevent this kind of damage. This system consists of running copper conduit from the top of the tree down the trunk and out into the ground.

Lightning protection does not attract lightning; it merely provides a safe path for the current to travel down should the charges meet above a tree top. When we install the conductor, we choose a side of the tree that is less visible so that the work does not detract from the natural beauty of the tree. The cost of installing this system will always be less than the emotional and financial cost of losing a significant tree on your property.
