Good morning, forum,

                Can anyone point me at figures for the side-loads generated
by wind on tree crowns, and how this translates into loading on to the
root-zone and lower trunk?  I assumed there would be something in Mattheck,
but cannot find anything in my books.

It may be that I 'll need to look at figures from the world of buildings and
structures, but any pointers would be most useful

 

All the best
