Local Authority Contracts Essex: Our Services
We offer a wide variety of tree services suitable for local authorities including the following which are some of the most popular:
This service is commonly used to control roadside trees with canopies that are interfering with high sided traffic such as buses and lorries. It involves carefully taking out the upper branches and canopy of the tree, leaving only the main trunk system. Pollarded trees remain in a growing state, but the growth is slowed down which is something that makes the trees much more manageable for local authorities.
Tree reduction involves removing the outer crown of a tree, allowing more light to shine through. It works best where 20-30 per cent of the crown will be reduced. If more needs to be taken out then we would usually recommend pollarding instead.
We offer a professionally qualified service in local authority hedge trimming Essex wide. Our knowledge is such that we are able to take on hedges of any height or length, even the tallest and most unruly. We also offer a respected service in topiary and decorative hedge management for public spaces and estate land.
Our professional tree report service is called upon frequently by local authorities looking to determine the status of a tree on any given piece of public land, and also on behalf of insurers or legal representatives. Our service includes carrying out a visual inspection using specialist equipment to identify any weaknesses in the tree and then issue an official written report on our findings.
Crown lifting is the ideal service where there is a desire to maintain the overall height of a tree but the canopy is causing problems such as interfering with traffic or passers-by, blocking light or posing a danger because of low branches which are loose and threatening to be dislodged during a storm or high winds.
Trees produce dead wood as part of their natural growth cycle. This has to be removed regularly otherwise it could fall without warning leading to property damage or personal injury. In the name of safety it is vital to hire a tree surgeon to carry out frequent deadwood pruning of trees on public land.

The importance of making safe a site where a tree has been felled, fully or partially, or is threatening to shed large, heavy branches, cannot be stressed enough.
