When to Prune your Tree
If you are seeking advice on Essex tree care and the best time to prune your particular tree, you will find it amongst our news and tree ID pages. We have invested a great deal of time into creating these resources to help our customers with their own tree care so we hope you find them useful.
Generally, the rule of thumb with tree pruning is to avoid the growing season which in most cases is late spring to early winter. This is because when a tree is pruned whilst it is actively growing, it bleeds sap. Sap attracts bugs, which in turn bring disease. This is obviously not good tree care practice, hence avoiding the growing season.
Optimum pruning times – and methods – for individual tree species will vary though, so be sure to check our resources or contact us for tailored advice before proceeding. We are always happy to help. Remember: when it comes to the well-being of your precious trees, there is no substitute for professional advice.
It should also be remembered that it is an offence to carry out any sort of non-emergency tree work during the bird nesting season, i.e. February to August. Always be sure to check for nesting birds before proceeding with any tree work and respect wildlife.
Any emergency tree work such as the removal of dangerous branches that are posing a threat to safety can be carried out at any time of year.
Common Tree Diseases
Some trees are more susceptible than others where disease and pest infestations are concerned. You have probably heard of some of the most common tree diseases, such as ash dieback, chestnut blight, Dutch elm disease and oak decline, but there are many more to look out for.
A vital aspect of our Essex tree care services is identifying and treating diseases, fungi and pest infestations. If you are worried that your tree may be diseased or infested, check out our article on common tree diseases and pests and do not hesitate to get in touch for personalised advice if you have any concerns.
Tree Care and Tree Preservation Orders
Our long-established status means that we have developed excellent relationships with local authority tree officers. This allows us to liaise smoothly on your behalf so that your tree care work can be authorised without delay when a tree preservation order (TPO) is in place.
