Tree Well Safety – Prevention & Recovery

Posted on: January 26, 2023 | Mountain Safety

A tree well is a hole or depression that forms around the base of a coniferous (pine) tree. The holes are formed when low branches stop the snow from compacting and settling around the trunk. The hole is hidden from view by the other branches on the tree.

Therefore, treat any tree you cannot see the base of as a potentially dangerous tree well situation.
