Do you have trees that are growing over neighbour’s property? Trees that are starting to touch power cables or interfere with passing traffic? If so, you will benefit from tree reduction. Tilbury wide this is a service that the team here at TH Trees Ltd have called one of our most popular for over a decade and a half. If you’d prefer not to cut a tree down altogether, but at the same time need to deal with the issues we’ve mentioned, tree reduction is for you.

Across Tilbury tree reduction involves decreasing the width and height of a tree by 20 to 30 per cent. The benefits are immediate. If even better results are required then we may suggest tree pollarding or tree removal. The health of the tree and safety always come first.

Helpful advice on tree reduction Tilbury wide

When choosing a tree surgeon for tree reduction, be sure to always check the qualifications they have relate to the type of work being carried out.

There are many different qualifications and not all of them are relevant to certain types of tree work. Allow an unqualified tree worker to work on your tree and, if there’s an issue, you could find that their insurance doesn’t cover them for any damage or injury they have caused.

Tilbury tree reduction: species covered

The following are just some of the trees we work on regularly throughout Tilbury:

  • The oak tree – including the English or common oak, the sessile oak and the holm oak including those that grow up to 30 or 40 metres in height.
  • Willow trees – including those located on the banks of lakes, rivers or ponds. Whether you run a fishery and need to clear overgrown swims; you manage parks or gardens or you have a willow in your own private garden that could do with reducing in size, our experts can assist.
  • Ash trees – including those suffering from ash dieback. Ash trees suffering from this disease need extra special care and attention and we are able to provide expert advice on how best to proceed. It is crucial to present a solution that makes the tree safe, but at the same time reins in the spread the spores of the disease.
  • Fruit trees – including pear, plum, cherry and apple. Fruit trees enjoy regular pruning of the right kind as it helps them develop a strong branch structure to support their heavy fruit crops.
  • Conifers and pines – including yew, cedar and Leyland cypress. These trees can grow to towering heights but thankfully our experience, knowhow and skill and our specialist equipment and training in working at height mean we can provide our customers with total peace of mind whenever tackling trees of these species.
  • Thorny and spiky trees – unlike some tree companies, we are not opposed to working on hawthorn, holly or even monkey puzzle trees.
  • Eucalyptus trees – including the cider gum tree, popular along the Essex coast.
  • Beech trees – even if your beech tree has grown to 30 or 40 metres in height, we can reduce it for you without issue. Regular pruning works well for the beech tree as it helps in maintaining its leaves year-round which is good news if you use it as privacy hedging.
  • Ornamental and flowering trees – including lilac, magnolia, false acacia (Robinia) and bay laurel. We will ensure your ornamental tree is pruned at the optimum time and using the correct method to ensure you enjoy plenty of blooms the following year.
  • 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.

In other words, we can handle any tree you have on your land. Need to identify a tree? Our Tree ID pages should prove helpful to you.

Your tree and common diseases

An essential part of our Tilbury tree reduction service is recognising and treating diseases, fungi and pest infestations. If you are concerned that your tree could be suffering from disease or infestation, our guide to common tree diseases and pests should prove useful. Please do not hesitate to contact us for personalised advice if you are worried that your tree is suffering in any way.

Tilbury tree reduction: getting the timing right

There are certain times of year when tree reduction should be avoided.

Firstly, you are not allowed to prune any tree during the bird nesting season which runs from February to August. We will always check for nesting birds outside of this period, as sometimes you may find them nesting earlier or later in the year than usual.

During late spring to early winter, most trees are actively growing. Pruning during this time is not advised because trees that are growing bleed sap when they are cut. The sap attracts bugs and diseases.

The above rules only apply to non-emergency tree reduction work. If your tree requires immediate care due to disease or infestation however, or is presenting dangerous loose branches, then we can go ahead with care.

For further information on the optimum times to prune the various different species of trees, you are welcome to consult our news and tree ID pages, or contact us for individual advice.

A final piece of helpful advice… any tree that is protected by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) will subject to limits on the level of tree reduction allowed. Permission will be required from the local authority before proceeding which can take up to eight weeks to be granted. Always check the TPO register if you have reason to believe your tree is protected, or if you live in a conservation area.
