Grays Tree Surgery: Our Services
Our Grays tree surgery service is all-inclusive. We would be pleased to provide you with a written quotation for the particular service you require, and will always offer professional, qualified guidance on the most appropriate method or process depending on your tree’s species, size, age, situation and condition. There is no obligation to proceed with our quotations.
The following is a guide to our core tree surgery services:
Different trees and varying situations require different types of tree pruning. Should you be uncertain which service you require, feel free to hand over to our expert guidance.
For example, some species of tree have naturally bushy, dense canopies. For these trees, it is beneficial for the tree to have its crown periodically thinned. This allows valuable light and air to get through to where it is needed, boosting the health of the tree and improving its overall appearance. Crown thinning is also useful where a tree is blocking light.
Some trees grow to soaring heights. These will usually benefit from regular crown lifting or pollarding. These processes will ensure the tree does not present a hazard within its surroundings. Trees situated on roadsides and close to overhead cables in particular benefit from pollarding.
Fruit bearing trees such as the apple, plum or pear tree must be pruned in a particular way so that they develop a nice strong branch system. This is vital to support the heavy fruit crops.
In some situations you may want to keep your tree maintained at a certain height or spread so that it does not outgrow its space.
Whichever of the tree pruning services you require from our Grays tree surgery specialists, you can rest assured it will be carried out with the utmost in expert professionalism.
If you are seeking advice on the best time to prune your tree, take a look our news pages. We have created many articles on the subject of tree pruning for all the UK’s most common trees. Our tree ID pages should also prove helpful if you want to learn more about your particular species of tree.
Our Grays tree care services include dead wood removal. This is essential where the health and safety of your tree is concerned. Dead wood comes about naturally as part of the tree’s growth cycle, but it can also signal disease or decay. If you request that we attend to remove dead wood from your tree, then we will also run an inspection of the tree to make certain there are no symptoms of disease or pest infestation that need to be taken care of. If we do find any such symptoms then we let you know what can be done and any associated costs which you will have the opportunity to agree to before we go ahead.
Another aspect of our Grays tree surgery service is treating disease, fungi such as honey fungus, and infestations of common pests such as scale insects, gall wasps, aphids and weevils. Depending on the individual problem, there are numerous biological and non-biological processes we can use. It is crucial to use the right treatment, because an unsuitable method could lead to disastrous results.
If you are concerned that your tree may be diseased or infested with pests or fungi, our article covering the subject of common tree diseases should prove helpful. If you detect anything that you don’t like the look of, don’t hesitate in taking action. The faster you have it seen to, the greater the chance of your tree making a complete recovery back to full health.
Useful Information on Tree Preservation Orders
It is important to know that trees of notable interest are usually subject to protection by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO). This means that the amount of pruning permitted will be limited, and you will require official permission to carry out works. The arboriculture department of your local authority will assist you in checking the TPO register in this respect. If it emerges that permission is required then you will need to make an application through the local authority which could take up to eight weeks to be approved.
If your tree is located in a conservation area then special permission will be required before going ahead with any works.
With T.H. Tree Services, you can have total peace of mind that our long-established relationships with local authority tree officers mean that we can liaise smoothly on your behalf so that your tree surgery work can be authorised as quickly as possible.
