Tree Surgeon Grays – Our Qualifications

At T.H. Tree Services we guarantee total peace of mind, and this is backed up by our long list of official tree surgeon qualifications.

All our Grays tree surgeons are qualified to N.P.T.C. and LANTRA standards which are the industry’s standard certifications and prove that a tree surgeon has achieved a minimum standard of proficiency.

When hiring a tree surgeon in Grays, you should always be sure to check that they possess the qualifications relevant to the work they are carrying out for you. Be aware that not all tree surgeons will have ALL the right certificates which could result in insurance related problems for you.

At T.H. Tree Services, our Grays tree surgeons have as many as ten different N.P.T.C. qualifications as well as two LANTRA qualifications. All our tree surgeons undergo regular refresher training.  We work to British Standard BS 3998 2010 and we adhere to all the associated legislation including the Work at Height Regulations, the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act and the Manual Handling Operations, all of which we have a totally unblemished record in.

Grays Tree Surgeons: Our Services

Our Grays tree surgeons offer the following services:

Tree pollarding

When a tree is situated on a roadside or close to overhead cables, it is useful to keep its canopy under control using the pruning method known as pollarding. This is a popular service for local authorities where it is important to ensure a safe environment.

Crown reduction

Crown reduction is all about bringing the size of the tree’s crown down. This is good for the tree as it boosts light and air flow, plus it improves the surrounding environment.

Dead wood pruning

Dead wood occurs naturally as a tree grows. It is important to check trees for dead wood regularly and remove it so that it doesn’t pose a risk. If you have spotted loose branches within your tree, our Grays tree surgeons will investigate the situation to ensure there is no disease or pest infestations present.

Tree removal

If a tree is hazardous, diseased and cannot be saved, or is causing access or root related issues, tree removal may be the best course of action. Because this type of work has to be carried out at height, it must be undertaken by professionals using the right equipment and with relevant qualifications so as to avoid injury or damage to property.

Tree Surgeons in Grays – Our Specialities

At T.H. Tree Services we offer a fully comprehensive range of services including the pruning services listed above. In addition to these, we also have a list of specialist services including hedge trimming and removal; ivy trimming and removal; bamboo removal and storm damaged tree removal.

Our Grays tree surgeons have extensive knowledge of all the species of trees that are common in the UK, including native and non-native species.

Our expertise and in-depth experience means we are able to deal with trees of even the greatest heights and spreads such as the oak tree which grows to 40 metres; the willow tree that is often situated on the banks of a body of water; the Leyland cypress which often reaches heights of 40 metres; the eucalyptus tree which needs expert pruning otherwise its health could be adversely affected and the cherry tree which again needs a particular approach when it comes to pruning so as to encourage a strong branch structure to support its heavy fruit crops. These are just a small selection of the trees we are able to deal with.

When to Prune your Tree

Our Grays tree surgeons will always advise you on the best time to prune your particular tree. If you’d like to read up about it yourself, you will find plenty of information amongst our news and tree ID pages.

The general rule of thumb when it comes to tree pruning is to avoid the growing season. In the majority of cases this will be late spring to early winter. The reason for this is that when a tree is pruned during its active growing phase, it bleeds sap. Sap attracts bugs and these tend to spread disease.

The best pruning times and methods for individual tree species will be subject to variation though, so ensure you consult our resources or contact us for tailored advice. Remember: when it comes to the health of your valued trees, there is no substitute for professional assistance.

You should also note that it is an offence to undertake any kind of non-emergency tree work during the bird nesting season, i.e. February to August. Always check for nesting birds before going ahead with any tree work. Any emergency tree surgery such as the removal of dangerous branches that are posing a hazard can be undertaken at any time of year.

Tree Preservation Orders – What you Need to Know

You should be aware that trees of notable interest are usually protected by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO). This means that the level of pruning allowed will be subject to restrictions and permission will be required to undertake works. You’ll need to talk to the arboriculture department of your local authority to check the TPO register before you proceed with any work. If permission is needed you are likely to have a wait of up to eight weeks ahead of you.

If your tree is situated in a conservation area then special permission will be required before proceeding.

The good news is that our Grays tree surgeons have forged strong relationships with local authority tree officers which means we are able to liaise efficiently for you so that your tree surgery work can be authorised as swiftly as possible.

Common Tree Diseases

Some trees are more prone to disease and pest infestations than others. No doubt you have heard of some of the most common tree diseases, such as ash dieback, chestnut blight, Dutch elm disease and oak decline, but there are several others to look out for.

A vital aspect of our Grays tree surgeon services is detecting and treating diseases, fungi and pest infestations. If you are concerned that your tree may be diseased or infested, read our guide to common tree diseases and pests and do not hesitate to contact us for personalised advice if you have any concerns.
