Here in South Carolina, our ancient live oaks and tall pines are a part of our heritage. Not only do we want to protect these magnificent trees from lightning, but once they do become damaged, these trees can become a significant hazard to life and property. It can be hard to judge where a tall pine might fall, and our gracious live oaks cover such a large area that a single tree can damage several buildings at one time. On top of all this, a dead, charred, lightning-struck tree can really detract from the appeal of your home or business. Preventing lightning damage to your trees can help you avoid this damage.
