Arboriculture is a tree surgeon’s speciality. Years of training culminate in expert knowledge of tree species, health and the use of equipment to maintain them.
It’s important this trade is maintained, especially as the value of trees is becoming more and more apparent as time goes by. Not only do they serve a purpose in the cycle of this planet, but they’re a beautiful life form that we’ve cultivated, maintained and sustained ourselves on for thousands of years.
As a result, you’ll often need an expert for the trees on your property. So we’ve created this useful set of tips for situations where a tree surgeon may be necessary.
Use An Arborist To Remove Sick & Diseased Trees
Just as we suffer from sickness and ailments, so do trees. Phytophthora, dieback and dutch elm disease are ravaging the UK’s tree population. With the prevalence of such virulent strains, more and more trees are being removed for safety purposes.
It’s a sad time when a favourite tree needs to be removed. However, sometimes there’s no avoiding it. That’s why it’s important to have it taken care of by professional tree surgeons. Not only can they be dangerous to take down, but it’s very important that it’s done safely in order to stop the spread of tree sicknesses.
Intrusive Roots In Your Home
Occasionally, a tree is planted without forward planning. At the time it seemed like a good idea, but as time goes on, it grows much larger than anticipated. These roots beneath the ground then start to cause issues. If you’re experiencing tree roots pushing up against paths and concrete or threatening the foundation of your home, it’s vital you hire a professional tree surgeon to remove it before lasting damage is caused.
Branches Above Your Property
Beautiful trees towering around your property can create a magical atmosphere and provide habitats for nature to flourish. However, there comes a time when trees overstep their mark and grow in places they shouldn’t – like over your home. If a branch is putting your property at risk of damage or has grown past the boundary of your property, then we recommend hiring expert tree surgeons to tame the beast back to its former glory.
Maintaining Ornamental Trees With Qualified Surgeons
If you own any rare, slow-growing or specimen trees, you’ll want to make sure they’re maintained by professionals. Specialist techniques are involved with pruning trees, which needs to occur at certain times of year to ensure productive, healthy growth. Without certification and knowledge, it’s difficult to do this yourself. So, we advise you to hire a local professional to do this for you, to ensure that glorious ornamental cherry or silver birch stays looking good for years to come.
