Grays Tree Pruning: All Species and Sizes of Trees Covered
Our Grays tree pruning service covers a vast range of tree species and sizes. Whether your tree or trees are located on public land, in a domestic garden, on business premises or somewhere dangerous such as a railway line or close to a body of water, the specialists at T.H. Tree Services possess the knowhow and experience needed to deal with them.
Over the past 15 years we have pruned probably every species of tree commonly found across the UK. Our knowledge of when and how to carry out tree pruning Grays wide using the correct methods means you can rest assured that your tree will not only look great but will also be healthy.
The following are just some of the species of trees we have expertise in pruning:
- Oak trees. We are able to prune all types of oak tree including the English or common oak, the sessile oak and the holm oak. Whilst Oak trees can grow to heights of 40 metres sometimes with a spread of the same width, this poses no problem for our qualified specialists who have the necessary skills to work safely at height.
- Willow trees. Our expertise extends to willow tree pruning of all types including willows located on the banks of lakes or ponds where they typically reside. With their swaying, cascading branches, willow trees benefit from regular pruning and it is helpful to trim back the branches periodically so that people are able to sit underneath the tree and enjoy the shade. Pruning allows more light to penetrate and makes it easier to maintain the grounds beneath.
- Ash trees. Sadly the ash tree is prone to the common disease ash dieback, so it is important to be on the lookout for this. The ash tree can grow to 35 metres in height: no problem for our qualified tree surgeons who are specifically trained to work at height. If we detect any signs of ash dieback or any other disease during the pruning process, we will let you know.
- Fruit trees including pear, plum, cherry and apple. It is essential that fruit trees undergo expert pruning so that they develop a robust branch structure. This enables the trees to support their heavy fruit crops when the time comes.
- Conifers and pines including yew, cedar and Leyland cypress. Conifers and pines are renowned for growing to towering heights, sometimes up to 100 metres. Our experience, knowledge and specialist equipment however mean pruning these mighty trees really is no problem.
- Thorny trees and spiky trees including hawthorn, holly and monkey puzzle. You may find that some tree care companies refuse to deal with pruning thorny trees. Not us though! Whatever tree you have in Grays, thorns, spikes and all, if it needs pruning, consider it done.
- Eucalyptus trees of all varieties, including the cider gum tree found along the Essex coast in large numbers. Eucalyptus trees will often grow to 30 metres in height and this tree will often be found growing on the banks of lakes. Again, no problem for T.H. Tree Services thanks to our specialist equipment and training.
- Beech trees. The beech tree tends to grow quite a large sized canopy and reach heights of 30-40 metres. Whether you have a regular beech tree or a beech hedge, we can take care of pruning it for you. Regular pruning is beneficial for the beech tree as it helps it maintain its leaves throughout the year: useful if you use your beech tree as privacy hedging.
- Other deciduous and evergreen trees including silver birch trees, hornbeam trees, lime trees, maple trees, sycamore trees, rowan trees, elm trees, whitebeam trees, spindle trees and aspen trees. We can also professionally prune ornamental and flowering trees such as lilac, magnolia, false acacia (Robinia) and bay laurel.
If you need to identify a tree on your land or in your garden, our comprehensive Tree ID pages should prove very helpful.
Common diseases affecting trees in Grays
When we undertake Grays tree pruning, an important element of our work is to assess the tree for any signs of disease or decay that could be causing the branches to weaken, or that could be affecting the tree’s health.
Some species of trees are more prone to disease, fungi and pest infestations than others. You have probably heard of some of the most common tree diseases like ash dieback, chestnut blight, Dutch elm disease and oak decline. The list of common diseases and pests however sadly goes on further than this.
A vital part of our Grays tree pruning services is identifying and dealing with diseases, fungi and pest infestations. If you are concerned that your tree may be suffering from disease or could be infested, our guide to common tree diseases and pests should prove helpful. If you have any worries be sure to contact us without delay for tailored advice.
When is the best time for tree pruning in Grays?
Tree pruning should be avoided at certain times of the year and in certain situations.
The bird nesting season, February to August, is one of them. It is forbidden by law to disturb nesting birds, so we will always check for them before going ahead with any pruning, even outside of the nesting seasons. This rule applies only to non-emergency tree pruning. If there are hazardous branches threatening to fall from the tree, or the tree requires urgent attention because it is diseased or ingested, then it is usually permissible to proceed.
It is also inadvisable to undertake tree pruning whilst the tree is within its active growing season. This usually runs from late spring to early winter. During the active growing season, trees will bleed sap when cut and this sap will attract all sorts of bugs. These bugs flock to the sap bearing a host of diseases which get inside the tree and cause all sorts of problems. Emergency tree pruning is different, but if possible it is always advisable to leave it until late winter to early spring, in most cases.
We say in most cases, because some species of tree do vary outside of this generalised rule. Make sure you read our news and tree ID pages for advice on the best time to prune your particular tree, or contact us for individual advice.
You will also need to check the TPO register if your tree is of notable interest. If the tree is protected by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) then the amount of tree pruning allowable will be restricted and you will require permission from your local authority to go ahead. Be prepared, as this can take up to eight weeks to be provided and you must not do anything until you have the official go-ahead.
