What are the common diseases affecting trees in Thurrock?

An expert assessment of a tree for signs of decay or disease is vital, as branch weakness could pose a risk, and the health of the tree could be in danger. We always carry this out before we start on tree crown reduction.

Certain species of trees are more susceptible to disease, fungi and pest infestations. Some of the most prevalent tree diseases in the UK are ash dieback, chestnut blight, Dutch elm disease and oak decline, however this is not a limited list.

If you are concerned that your tree may be suffering from disease, fungus or pest infestation, our guide to common tree diseases should prove helpful. Should you have any particular concerns, don’t waste any time in getting in touch with us for tailored advice. The faster your tree undergoes treatment, the better chance it will have of making a complete recovery.

When should tree crown reduction be undertaken?

Let’s take a look now at the good and not so good times to carry out tree crown reduction in Thurrock

Tree crown reduction should be avoided whilst the tree is actively growing. This for most trees occurs during the late spring to early winter period. The reason for this is that, during their active growing cycle, trees bleed sap when they are cut and this attracts bugs which in turn bring diseases. If however there is an urgent 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. This season runs from February to August and by law, no tree work is permitted to be undertaken unless again there are emergency requirements such as dangerous branches threatening to fall or treatment required for disease or pest infestation.

Be aware that certain tree species are dormant at different times of the year, so it is a good idea to verify the ideal timing for your particular tree. Check out our news and tree ID pages for advice on the best time to prune your particular tree, or contact us for bespoke advice.

There is also a requirement to consult the local authority TPO register if your tree is of notable interest. If it is protected by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) then the volume of crown reduction permitted will be limited and you will need to obtain permission from your local authority to go ahead. Be prepared as this can take up to eight weeks to be granted.
