What is essential to consider when engaging tree workers in Thurrock? What services do tree workers offer and what species of trees do they deal with? And vitally, how do you know you are hiring a genuine, fully qualified tree worker that offers top value for money? All these questions and more will be answered as you read on.
Identifying genuine Thurrock tree workers
You’ve probably had leaflets through your door in the past touting services such as ‘garden clearance and ‘lopping and topping’. Beware though, because unless the leaflet says otherwise, this usually indicates general, unqualified labour.
Tree workers who are adequately qualified to deal safely with all types and sizes of trees in EVERY situation, hazardous included, will present a checkable list of qualifications. They will also be able to prove they have relevant insurance and talk about their experience, which should span a number of years. They will also quote named specialist tree surgery services and demonstrate their knowledge of pruning methods and tree species.
Thurrock tree workers that can be trusted will happily provide evidence of testimonials, quality standards and compliance with regulations.
For the most part, tree work is undertaken in risky conditions. Trees are usually of great height with some situated in challenging locations, such as overhanging bodies of water or close to overhead power cables or public roads. Qualified, experienced tree workers, more commonly known as tree surgeons, will have the skill to deal with such situations with ease.

Thurrock tree workers: Our Services
There is no tree service we don’t offer here at TH Trees. The most popular ones are as follows:
Trees located by public highways or close to overhead cables need their canopies maintained using the pruning process known as pollarding. We often undertake this service for local authorities and private land and estate owners.
Crown reduction is basically the reduction of the size of a tree’s crown. It is beneficial to the tree because it promotes light and air flow. It also opens up the view, and lets light through to the ground below to help plants and grass to thrive.
Dead wood is a natural part of the growth cycle of a tree. It must be regularly removed so it doesn’t fall and injure someone or damage property unexpectedly. We will always ensure that disease or pest infestations were not responsible for the dead wood.
If a tree is diseased, dangerous or just beyond salvaging, is blocking access or its roots are causing issues, tree removal may be necessary. Tree removal involves working at height, therefore it must be done by professionals with the right equipment and qualifications so as to make sure risks are avoided.

Tree pruning: a helpful guide to getting the timing right
Avoiding the active growing season is the key rule with tree pruning. This usually falls between late spring and early winter. Avoiding this season is important because when a tree is pruned whilst it is growing, it bleeds sap and this attracts bugs which bring disease.
The best pruning seasons and methods for individual trees is prone to variation, which is why it is crucial to study our resources or contact us for tailored advice.
Any non-emergency tree work is also banned during the bird nesting season, running from February to August in the UK. Always check for nesting birds before proceeding with any tree work, even outside of this period. Any emergency tree surgery, such as the removal of dangerous branches or disease treatment can be usually undertaken any time during the year.
What you need to know about Tree Preservation Orders
Trees of notable interest are protected by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO). This places restrictions on tree work and requires permission to proceed, which can take around eight weeks to come through. You’ll need to talk to the arboriculture department of your local authority and check the TPO register before going ahead.
If your tree is located in a conservation area then you will need permission for any sort of tree work.
Our Thurrock tree workers have developed excellent relationships with local authority tree officers, meaning we are in the best positon to get your tree work authorised as quickly as possible.
Common Tree Diseases
Some trees are more prone to disease and pest infestations than others. The most common tree diseases are ash dieback, chestnut blight, Dutch elm disease and oak decline, but these are just a few of many.
Our Thurrock tree workers are qualified to assess and treat diseases, fungi and pest infestations. If you are concerned that your tree may be suffering from disease or infestation, have a read of our guide to common tree diseases and pests and do not waste any time in contacting us for individual advice.
