This photo guide contains a number of pictures of trees of a number of species common to woodlands in Kentucky with a range of damage. 

Recommendations are provided for each photo regarding the loss of timber value, if timber should be salvaged and when, and a recommendation about the potential of the tree as it relates to long-term management. 

Trees in a stand will be damaged by ice to different degrees. To determine the loss of value or whether a tree can be expected to recover you must look at each tree and determine what type of damage has occurred. Acceptable growing stock evaluation must include current condition, length of time for recovery, and current market conditions.
