Extension resources help homeowners cope with tree damage

Residential trees have been taking a beating during the recent outbreak of summer storms across Indiana. Homeowners will need to determine if they can take care of the damage themselves or if they will need the help of a professional tree service, says Purdue Extension’s consumer horticulturist.

“There are trees with just small limbs down, but there are a lot of trees that suffered major breakage,” said Rosie Lerner. “It can be hard for homeowners to decide whether trees with severe damage should be removed. Homeowners often are reluctant to cut down a tree, either because of sentimental attachment or because the tree provides shade or screening that won’t quickly be replaced. It can also be quite expensive to have a large tree removed.”

Safety is the top priority when evaluating a damaged tree, Lerner said. Homeowners should first determine if the tree or some of its branches are in danger of falling now or in the near future.

Small, lower branches can be removed with loppers or a pruning saw. Larger limbs, or those too far up to reach, should be left to arborists who have the appropriate tools and equipment to safely bring down large or high limbs.

Purdue Extension’s Education Store has publications available for free download to help homeowners assess storm-damaged trees, remove broken branches or find a professional arborist

“Trees that have decay, previous injury, infection with disease or insects, or have poor architecture have a higher likelihood of breaking up in a big storm,” said Lerner.

Trees such as ornamental pear, silver maple and river birch frequently have narrow angles between the main trunk and branches and/or soft wood that compromise their structure.

Just because a tree trunk has damage does not necessarily mean the tree will need to be removed right away, Lerner said. Large, split branches or trunks that have not broken off the tree may be braced and possibly saved by an arborist.

“Trees can live for quite some time with some massive holes in their trunks,” she said. “But the damage makes them more susceptible to disease, rotting, and insects and increases the likelihood they will come down in the next storm. Homeowners must assess the risk damaged trees pose to property, people and pets. It’s always best to err on the side of safety.”

State immunization tool reaches milestone

More than 50,000 records have now been accessed using MyVaxIndiana, the online tool launched by the Indiana State Department of Health in 2012. By visiting the secure website,, Hoosiers may download, print, email or fax their official immunization records as recorded in State’s immunization registry.

“Indiana was one of the first states to offer this service and I’m very pleased Hoosiers are taking advantage of it to get their immunization records,” said State Health Commissioner William VanNess, M.D.

MyVaxIndiana was created through a technology grant awarded to the Indiana State Department of Health from the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) in response to the ONC Consumer Innovation challenge to provide consumers access to their health information.

Access to MyVaxIndiana is easy. An individual may access their immunization record, or the record of a dependent minor, on the secure website by entering their date of birth and a personal identification number (PIN) which must be requested from their healthcare provider or local health department in advance. Immunization history, as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommended immunization schedule can be viewed.

All MyVaxIndiana records appear as they are maintained in the Indiana Children and Hoosiers Immunization Registry Program. MyVaxIndiana complements CHIRP, which is supported by the CDC. Approximately 4 million Hoosiers have “active” records in CHIRP, which is defined as having two or more vaccines entered.

“When we started MyVaxIndiana, one of our goals was to improve state immunization rates and empower Hoosiers to manage their immunization records,” said Dave McCormick, director of the Immunization Division at the Indiana State Department of Health. “Access to MyVaxIndiana keeps parents aware of what immunizations their children have and what they may need.”
