Lightning Protection

Tree Specialists has found that lightning damage to trees in our area is not uncommon. The National Fire Protection Association recommends that large trees that are within 10 feet of structures, are taller than the structure, or that have limbs extending over the structure, should have a lightning protection system installed. These systems not only protect the tree, they also reduce the chances of damage to the structure itself.

The total current in an average lightning strike is usually between 20,000 and 50,000 amps at about 100,000 volts! This amount of power can damage home appliances, wiring, and, in some cases, start a fire. The cost of a lightning protection system is reasonable, especially when compared to the potential cost of damage caused by lightning strikes to a home or business.
