What diseases commonly affect trees in Great Wakering?
We always conduct a thorough appraisal of all trees ahead of crown lifting so that we can be certain there is no disease or infestation present that could affect the health or safety of the tree.
Some species of trees are more prone to disease, fungi and pest infestations than others. Some of the most widespread UK tree diseases are ash dieback, chestnut blight, Dutch elm disease and oak decline. This is not an exhaustive list, however.
If you are worried that your tree may be struck by some sort of disease, fungus or pest infestation, our guide to common tree diseases should prove a useful read. If you have any specific concerns, be sure to contact us directly for tailored advice. The faster your tree is treated, the greater chance it will have of making a complete recovery.
When is the best time for tree crown reduction?
Tree crown reduction should be avoided during the active growing phase of the tree. For most trees this will run from late spring to early winter.
During their active growing cycle, trees bleed sap when they are cut. Sap acts as a beacon for bugs, which in turn bring diseases.
If there is an immediate need for tree work, such as to prevent branches falling or to protect the health of the tree, then work can usually go ahead.
The bird nesting season is another period which should be avoided for tree crown reduction. The season runs from February to August. By law, no tree work can be undertaken unless there are emergency requirements such as dangerous branches to be removed or there is a need to treat a tree for disease or infestation.
It is important to bear in mind that certain tree species are active at varying times of the year. For this reason it is a good idea to check the right pruning time for your particular tree. Take a look at our news and tree ID pages for expert guidance on the best time to prune your particular tree, or contact us for tailored advice.
It is also necessary to consult the local authority TPO register if your tree is protected by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO). If it is, then the amount of crown reduction allowed will be limited and you will need to gain permission from your local authority to proceed. Be prepared as this can take up to eight weeks to be granted.
