Trees can cause severe damage when they fall during typhoons. They can shut down roads, hit buildings and vehicles, and in rare cases, even injure or kill people. In 2018, Typhoon Mangkhut toppled more than 100,000 trees in Hong Kong.
With over 10 years of experience in Hong Kong, ATP has developed a very clear method of typhoon preparation for trees.
We start by inspecting each tree for health and structural condition. We give our clients a map with tree locations and numbers and give clear recommendations for tree management.
Tree Pruning and Support Systems
Based upon research, the best method of reducing tree failure potential is pruning for tree height reduction. Shorter trees are impacted less by wind during typhoons. This can greatly reduce tree failure potential. However, this method of pruning is also challenging and requires experienced arborists to accomplish correctly and effectively. In some cases, tree support systems can also help reduce tree failure potential and increase safety for people and property.
