Lightning Damage to Trees


A big lightning storm just passed through and I can't imagine that landscape trees didn't get hit. If you are one of the unlucky ones in any part of the country, I have tips on what do do after a strike. Good news: it's not always fatal!

    Cool post! The trees at our cabin have been overtaken by pine beetles and had to be cut down, it makes me so sad!!
