What to consider when hiring a tree surgeon for hedge trimming Great Wakering wide

When you hire a tree surgeon for Great Wakering hedge removal, it is essential to check whether their qualifications concur with the work being undertaken, because hedge trimming can be dangerous, especially when it involves tall or unruly plants.

Sadly there are too many self-professed hedge trimming outfits that claim to be experts. However, you will soon find out that a lot of them actually hold no qualifications, experience, training or insurance. Many don’t even have the appropriate equipment to undertake the work safely.

Consider what would happen if during the hedge trimming, part of it came into contact with a neighbour’s property, or injured a passer-by. With no acceptable insurance, the liability for the damages would then fall to you.

The importance of regular hedge trimming

Most hedging plants benefit from regular pruning which promotes their health and good aesthetics. A lot of hedges are designed to fit particular spaces, especially those grown as boundaries or as privacy screening. Frequent pruning using the correct procedures and specialist tools at the right time will allow the hedge to be maintained at the desired size.

Hedge trimming Great Wakering wide demands experience, training and specialist knowledge together with super-sharp, sterile custom-designed cutters for the best possible results. This is precisely why hiring experts rather than going down the DIY route is the best decision to make.

Great Wakering Hedge Trimming: All Species Included

Our Great Wakering hedge trimming service encompasses all hedging species, including:

  • Common box (Buxus) – this UK native evergreen hedging species can grow to 12 metres in height if not regularly pruned. It is also prone to various diseases and pests, so it is essential to check and prune on a regular basis.
  • Privet (Ligustrum) – a widely planted deciduous hedge. Privet grows very quickly and can soon get out of control if left unpruned.
  • Alder (Alnus glutinosa) – without regular pruning alder hedges can grow to heights of 20 metres. Alder is also susceptible to alder dieback which can lead to dead branches and bleeding from the bark. We can treat diseased alder as long as we are alerted to it early on.
  • Beech (Fagus sylvatica) – a popular specimen hedging tree with green, purple or copper coloured leaves. Beech can be susceptible to diseases like coral spot, heart and root rot and beech bark disease. Our tree surgeons can treat all of these.
  • Blackthorn (Prunus spinosa) – also known as ‘sloe’ after the purple summer fruits it produces. Blackthorn is a thorny hedging plant with stunning white spring blossom. Silver leaf is a fungal disease that can affect the wood and leaves of the blackthorn. If left untreated it can lead to the death of branches. Our blackthorn hedge pruning service covers removing dead or diseased branches and treatment where necessary.
  • Hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna) – another common deciduous hedging plant known for its spectacular white May blossom known as Mayflower. Hawthorn hedges that are not pruned in the correct way can produce crossing, congested shoots that are not good for the plant’s health. Over-pruning can prove problematic too. Hawthorn is susceptible to various pests plus leaf spot and fireblight, a bacterial disease that makes the plant look like it’s been scorched by fire. All of this can be treated using professional expertise.
  • Conifers and pines including yew, cedar and Leyland cypress are ideal as privacy hedging. Whatever of the height of your conifer or pine hedge, we can effectively prune it for you.
  • Other deciduous and evergreen hedging such as hornbeam, hazel, field maple, crab apple, bird cherry and wild cherry together with ornamental and flowering hedges like holly, lilac, false acacia (Robinia) and bay laurel are all included in our hedge pruning service.

Should you need to identify your hedge species, our Tree ID pages are worth a read, and to identify a disease, fungi or pest infestation, our guide to common tree diseases should prove helpful. You are welcome to contact us if you are concerned that your hedging is suffering from any of these diseases.

When is the best time for Great Wakering hedge trimming?

Any non-emergency hedge removal must be avoided during the bird nesting season which in the UK runs from February to August, we will always check for nesting birds outside of this period. If a hedge is diseased or posing a risk however, then emergency work can go ahead at any time of the year.

Hedge pruning should also be avoided during the plant’s active growing period which is usually during late spring to early winter. This can cause sap bleeding which attracts bugs which bring disease.

If you own or manage a countryside hedgerow then you will need to check whether it is protected before you go ahead with any work. If it is then you will need to apply to undertake any sort of work on it. You can learn more by visiting the protection and management of countryside hedgerows web page.
