Taller trees, especially those that stand alone, on hills or ridges, or above surrounding trees, are prone to lightning strikes. When this happens, trees can be severely damaged or even killed with a single strike. Protecting your trees from this is easy to do with a lightning protection system. The lightning protection system consists of conductive metal rods installed at the top of the canopy. This system is connected through a cable to a grounding rod buried at the base of the tree. When lightning strikes a protected tree, the bulk of the electricity is now directed along the conductive cable. Lightning is directed away from the tree and into the ground.
