    Can this tree be saved? [LIGHTNING DAMAGE PIX]

    Would like to know if you think ths tree can be saved... our tree guy
    is nowhere in sight...

    The blasts we heard last night were tremendous, ear shattering. Yet my
    2 yo son slept through all that! (around 3 am)

    Thankfully, both of my computers were protected by UPSes.

    The tree destroyed was a huge 200 year old oak.

    Pieces of that oak were strewn 50 yards away.

    You need to get your story straight. In an early post you say the tree was destroyed, now you say "only a strip of bark was blown away."
    I thought, in the beginning, that the tree was "destroyed", that is,
    not survivable. Now it appears that perhaps it is actually survivable.

    One thing about Igor's crossposting, I get such a kick out of seeing Tim May posting to alt.support.marriage.
    Yeah! I looked at Tim May posting and it looked funny to me too!

    That's true! Personally, i've never actually had a problem with cross
    posting but i know of those who have....can't remember the details but i
    think i even got 'scrutinized' for cross posting once! Gee. Some people can
    be so pedantic!

    I would let nature take its course (looks as though it already has now.) I
    wouldn't paint it, coat it, or do anything to it other than keep an eye on
    any type of disease it might be subject to during the healing process. If
    you have any signs of any of this - treat accordingly. After all - it's
    been around for over 200 years so far - and as the pictures tell the story -
    it appears that the bark was blown off. Keep an eye on infestation of
    insects on the white strips of exposed wood - this is the softest part of
    the oak and easily attacked.

    However, if anyone here cares to discuss the benefits of the divorce,
    marriage, or survivalism since that was greatly cross-posted - I'm all ears.
    :-)

    I'm well, Temily, thanks for asking. We've just had a short holiday away since the children are off school for these two weeks so I'm feeling rested - especially since I didn't change a single nappy the whole time! (Lovely man, my husband. ) )
    What have you been up to? I hope all is going well for you on your side
    of
    the "island".

    Victoria next week :-) so we're all being 'getabouts' !! Tis always good to
    have a break....and yup it's nice being on holiday!

    Hey, cool, Igor has his own "blasted oak"!

    You realise this is probably a message from God, warning you about your evil
    cross-posting habits, don't you?

    I think you should wait for the tree professional's opinion but if the tree
    wasn't fried outright, and it hasn't been ring-barked or structurally
    weakened then the main thing to worry about is preventing disease getting
    into the exposed wood. However, it looks as if the tree is pretty close to
    your house. You need to be sure it isn't going to weaken and fall on your
    house (or some innocent passerby).

    You have some grand trees around your property, I hope this one can be
    saved.

    NO!!!! tar would be far more damaging, most of the vascular system is
    in place. What borer attacks oak?

    Actually, that is NOT a good idea.
    Forestry people have told me it is best to let it heal by itself.
    Painting it with creosote or such isn't a good idea, in -their-
    opinion.

    Same with limbing a tree. Leave it exposed. Do not paint with
    anything. _according_ for U.S. Forest Service.

    Look it up for yourself if you don't believe me.
