Guarding Savannah's Green Giants: Essential Lightning Protection for Your Trees


In the stunning city of Savannah, where the landscape is as rich in history as it is in greenery, the threat of lightning strikes is a serious concern. Located in one of the highest lightning-strike densities in the U.S., Savannah's majestic trees require more than just the usual care—they need protection. At Kolcun Tree Care, we specialize in providing that safeguard through our advanced lightning protection systems for trees.

Why Lightning Protection is Vital

Lightning may not always kill a tree, but the damage it can inflict is often severe, leading to split trunks, unsightly scarring, structural weaknesses, and a significantly shortened lifespan. Protecting your trees from lightning is crucial to preserving not just the natural beauty of your environment, but also the safety of nearby structures that could suffer from falling branches or worse.

How Our Lightning Protection Worksstrong>

Our approach to lightning protection involves the installation of a system akin to a "lightning rod" designed specifically for trees. Here’s how it works:

  • Effective Channeling: We equip trees with a copper wire system featuring a blunt tip air terminal that is expertly placed high within the tree’s canopy. This system efficiently channels the lightning’s electric charge, directing it safely into the ground.
  • Subtle Design: Our installations are designed to be minimally intrusive. The copper wires and their attachments blend into the tree’s natural form, ensuring that they protect without detracting from the tree’s aesthetic or health.
  • Long-Term Investment: Installing a lightning protection system is a wise investment for your most valuable and cherished trees. It not only protects them from immediate threats but also preserves their health and beauty for future generations.
  • The Benefits Extend Beyond Protection: While the primary goal of our lightning protection services is safety, the benefits extend further.
  • Property Value: Healthy, well-protected trees enhance curb appeal and can increase property value.
  • Environmental Impact: By protecting your trees, you contribute to the local ecosystem's health and resilience, supporting wildlife and maintaining natural biodiversity.
  • Peace of Mind: Knowing your landscape is protected against severe weather lets you enjoy the beauty of your outdoor space without worry.


In Savannah, where every tree has a story, protecting these green giants from lightning is not just a precaution—it’s a necessity. At Kolcun Tree Care, our expertise and specialized services provide the best defense against nature’s unpredictabilities.
