Hail is a phenomenon that can make your witness how your plants and home landscape is destroyed in minutes. It is disheartening and sometimes it takes a long time to redesign everything as it was before the storm.
Here are the most common ways hail might damage your home landscape.
Hail may shake the branches ripping down the bark, leaves and fruits and even knocking some branches to the ground, if the hail stones are large in diameter.
Once the storm is over, you must prune broken branches (broken, not defoliated!), but allow the remaining leaves to stay on the tree, even if they are shredded, because they will help its recovery. The process of growing new leaves may take quite a long time, but it will happen eventually, so be patient.
