Lightning Protection For Trees in Linwood
Trees that have high value, whether historical or personal receive special care in areas frequently hit by lightening. Tom McDonald Contracting has been protecting trees in Linwood from lightning for many years. Here's how the system works. The very same method Tom McDonald Contracting technicians use for protecting buildings is applied to trees. Lightning protection systems installed in Linwood trees start with a lightening rod. From the rod, lightning travels through a highly conductive copper cable, and into a grounding rod, which sends the electricity many feet under the ground. The system diverts the strike down the tree, rather than through it.
It's Not Just for the Trees
When lightning rods are installed in Linwood trees near homes and other buildings, the tree is not the only thing that is protected. When the lightning rod is installed properly, electricity travels down it because it offers the path of least resistance. That strike may have been otherwise destined for your home or building, causing property damage in the form of fire or heat damage, and damage to outlets, appliances and other electric devices. Call (302) 266-1609 to have a Linwood lightning protection professional from Tom McDonald Contracting assess your land and buildings and help devise a lightning protection system to protect your family, your buildings and your trees.
