If a tree wasn't properly prepared for a storm, it may experience considerable damage. Mature hardwood trees like Live Oaks found in Merritt Island can be susceptible to intense winds produced by many Florida storms. Especially if they are diseased or improperly maintained. These strong winds can be detrimental, severely harming trees. Depending on the severity of a storm, trees can lose a considerable number of branches. The crown of a tree can experience notable thinning and breakage. Tough storms can even blow trees down completely. They can break under the weight of the crown and the pressure of wind, splitting at the trunk. Some trees can even be uprooted, falling down completely and leaving large holes and rips in the landscape.
