Tree Lightening Protection

It takes years to grow a large, magnificent tree. Lightening can strike and destroy that tree in an instant. Although a tree lightning protection system does not prevent a tree from being struck by lightning, it is possible to equip a tree so that lightning will be conducted harmlessly into the soil. A system of heavy copper cables is installed from the highest point in the tree and from the ends of major branches, down the trunk, and into the soil beyond the tree's main root area. This will deflect any lightening strike and leave the tree unharmed.
