What to consider when engaging a tree surgeon for hedge trimming in Thurrock?

When you hire a tree surgeon for Thurrock hedge removal, it is vital to ascertain whether the qualifications they say they have are a match for the work being carried out.

This is because hedge trimming can be a hazardous undertaking, particularly when handling large hedging plants such as conifer or yew. Many years of experience are needed to hone the skills needed to safely trim a hedge of this size without causing property damage or personal injury.

Sadly there are far too many so-called hedge trimming companies that claim to be ‘specialists’. However, the fact of the matter is you will soon realise that many of them possess no qualifications, experience, training or insurance. A lot of them don’t even have the correct equipment to carry out the work safely. Think about what would happen if during the trimming of your hedge, part of it fell onto a neighbour’s property or injured someone passing by. With no valid insurance, the company would not be able to cover a claim for compensation and damages. Instead the liability would fall to you.

The importance of regular hedge trimming

Most hedging plants need regular pruning. It helps them to stay looking attractive, and also keeps them healthy. Many hedges are grown to fit set spaces, particularly those grown as boundary markers or as privacy screening. Regular pruning with right methods and tools and at the correct time will maintain the hedge at the desired size.

Hedge trimming Thurrock wide calls for experience, training and specialist knowledge, plus super-sharp, custom-designed cutters. Otherwise, quite simply, it will be impossible to achieve the best looking, healthiest hedges. This is exactly why engaging experts rather than attempting the job yourself is the wisest way forward.

Thurrock Hedge Trimming: All Hedging Species Covered

Our Thurrock hedge trimming service covers a wide variety of hedging species o. Whether your hedge is located on public land or in a domestic garden; on commercial land or in a hazardous location, the specialists at TH Trees Ltd have the skill and experience required to complete the job safely and professionally.

Here are just a few of the hedging species we regularly trim across Thurrock:

  • Common box (Buxus) – this UK native evergreen hedging species can grow to heights of 12 metres without regular pruning. It is also susceptible to many diseases and pests so important to keep it in check with regular inspections.
  • Privet (Ligustrum) – a very popular deciduous hedge species. Privet grows rapidly and will soon get out of control if left unpruned.
  • Alder (Alnus glutinosa) – alder hedges left to grow without regular pruning can grow as tall as 20 metres. Alder is also susceptible to alder dieback which can result in dead branches and bleeding from the bark. We can treat diseased alder, but early detection is vital.
  • Beech (Fagus sylvatica) – this is a popular specimen hedging tree with either green, purple or copper coloured leaves. Beech can be prone to diseases like coral spot, heart and root rot and beech bark disease, all of which can be treated by our experts.
  • Blackthorn (Prunus spinosa) – also known as ‘sloe’ after the purple summer fruits it produces. Blackthorn is a thorny hedging plant, although its white spring blossom is very beautiful. Silver leaf is a fungal disease that can affect the wood and leaves of the blackthorn and it can result in the death of branches. Our blackthorn hedge pruning service includes removing dead or diseased branches and treatment where required.
  • Hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna) – another commonly found deciduous hedging plant well known for its striking white blossom that appears in May and is more widely known as Mayflower. Hawthorn hedges that are not correctly pruned can produce shoots that cross over and become congested, causing health problems for the plant. Over-pruning can cause problems too. Hawthorn is prone to many pests as well as leaf spot and fireblight, a bacterial disease that makes the plant look like it’s been scorched by fire. These parts can be pruned out, but beware – if you have a hawthorn hedge – ensure it is cared for professionally.
  • Conifers and pines including yew, cedar and Leyland cypress make great privacy hedging. Whatever of the height of your conifer or pine hedge, we can prune it safely for you.
  • Other deciduous and evergreen hedging such as hornbeam, hazel, field maple, crab apple, bird cherry and wild cherry as well as ornamental and flowering hedges like holly, lilac, false acacia (Robinia) and bay laurel are all part of our regular hedge pruning repertoire.

If you need to identify your hedge species, our Tree ID pages should prove useful. In addition, if you need to identify a disease, fungi or pest infestation then our guide to common tree diseases will help. You are welcome to contact us if you are worried that your hedging is suffering from any of these diseases and we offer our professional opinion and suggested course of treatment.

When is the optimum time for Thurrock hedge trimming?

It is not advisable to prune hedges whenever the notion takes you. Any non-emergency hedge removal must be avoided during the bird nesting season. In the UK this runs from February to August, although a responsible tree surgeon will always check for nesting birds outside of this period. If a hedge is diseased or hazardous however then emergency work can be carried out at any time of the year.

Hedge pruning is also best avoided during the plant’s active growth period as this will cause sap bleeding which attracts bugs and in turn disease. Late spring to early winter is the time to avoid.

If you own or manage a countryside hedgerow then you will need to verify whether it is protected before you proceed with any work. If it is protected then you will have to make an application to undertake any sort of work on it. You can learn more by visiting the protection and management of countryside hedgerows web page.
