When should you prune your tree?
Part of our Tilbury tree surgeon service includes providing advice on the most appropriate time to prune a particular tree. If you’d like to find out more about your own tree and when to prune it, we have put together a range of guides amongst our news and tree ID pages.
The general rule on tree pruning is to avoid the active growing season because when a tree is growing, it will bleed sap when cut and in doing so attract bugs and diseases. In most cases the active growing phase falls between late spring to early winter.
Optimum pruning times and processes for individual tree species vary so it is important to consult our resources or contact us for individual advice. When it comes to the health of your valued trees, professional advice is essential.
It is also important to be aware that any type of non-emergency tree work must be avoided during the bird nesting season (February to August). Check for nesting birds before proceeding with any tree work.
A Word About Tree Preservation Orders
Trees of notable interest are usually protected by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) which restrict the level of pruning and require permission to carry out works. You’ll need to liaise with the arboriculture department of your local authority to check the TPO register. Permission usually takes around eight weeks to come through.
If your tree is situated in a conservation area then special permission is needed before proceeding with any works.
Our Tilbury tree surgeons hold long term relationships with local authority tree officers meaning we are in an advantageous position to help push your application through quickly in most cases.
Common Tree Diseases
Some trees are more prone to disease and pest infestations than others. The most common tree diseases such as ash dieback, chestnut blight, Dutch elm disease and oak decline are widely known, but there are many others that you should be aware of.
A very important aspect of our Tilbury tree surgeon service is identifying and treating diseases, fungi and pest infestations. If you are concerned that your tree may be disease or infested, take a look at our guide to common tree diseases and pests and do not waste any time in contacting us for individual advice should you deem it necessary.
