770 Arborist Emergency Tree & Crane Service - Canton & Atlanta GA

We Are Open 24/7


December 9, 2018

Going through old videos and realized I never published this great example of a large pocket of decay in a tree that never failed.

Many times customers will ask us which tree will fail first. A Lot of times we we can guess accurately, but then sometimes we have examples such as this pine tree. If put into a triage scenario, I would have guessed that this pine tree would have failed first. But in this case it did not.

Why is this? I believe that oftentimes the response growth around a Decay pocket can actually maintain a tree’s strength.

Also, Another possibility is that the canopy of this tree was not as full as the other trees around it. Thus it had less wind load put on it.

Anyway it is an interesting example of a tree with a lot of Decay still standing after a storm while being surrounded by failed trees all around it.
