Lightning Protection in Lynchburg, Virginia is absolutely critical. Every year, more than one million trees are struck by lightning in the United States. Lightning can severely weaken a tree, making it a danger, or kill them instantly.

Above Ground Tree Service offers a lightning protection system and plan that minimizes the risk of damage from a lightning strike. These systems involve a ground rod that is placed to reduce the damage and divert the electrical charge.

When these systems are applied by a professional, certified team, they have excellent track records.

However, if they are applied by people who don’t have the training and certifications, they can do, at best, nothing at all, and at worst, make your yard a powder keg waiting to explode.

Chemicals of any kind can be damaging to your health, the health of your pets, and the health of your other plants, which is why it is so critical that you have someone who understands how, when, and where to apply chemicals.

In Virginia, we see a fair share of thunderstorms that threaten our trees. As a homeowner, it is your responsibility to yourself, your family, and your neighbors to insure that you are protects.

Tall trees are the most susceptible to getting struck, and according to Colorado State, oaks, elms, pines, spruce, poplars, maples and ash are the most common species to get hit.
