Tree Maintenance

Tree maintenance plays a vital role in sustaining the health of your trees and ensure reduction in risk to fell trees. Floods and storms affect trees in many ways, their effect is greatly influenced by many factors such as wind speed, wind direction, rain intensity and duration, location, water type tree species, age and health.

Trees can adapt to changing conditions but this adaptation is slow and may take many decades to occur. Storm damage can be very different to flood damage and one can occur without the other, although they will often happen together.

Trees in made or urban environments can certainly benefit from proactive tree care and soil management. Such work would significantly improve and maintain tree vitality making them more resistant to both natural and man-made events. A lightning strike to trees can result in large bark wounds, loss of vitality or total destruction depending on the species and weather conditions at the time of the strike. Once a tree has been subject to a lightning strike little can be done to improve its chances of survival. Lightning is very unpredictable but it is possible to protect tall, high-value trees with lightning conductors.

Tree Pollarding

Traditionally, Pollarding was used to harvest the wood for fuel, posts, fencing etc. and new shoots were used as fodder for livestock. Nowadays, Pollarding is done to maintain the health of a tree and reduce a range of possible risks.

Pollarding is generally the removal of all smaller branches and shoots. The remaining larger limbs are often seen with a knuckle like finish. This technique keeps trees healthy and prevents them from growing out of control, maintaining balance. Pollarding can be carried out annually depending on species but is more often performed at multiple year intervals. Frequent pollarding will also slow down root growth and can prevent sub level damage.

Pollarding is often essential to bring a tree back to a healthy state and reduce excessive weight and vulnerability to high winds.

Tree Crown Reduction

Crown Reduction is where you bring an overall shape to the crown of the tree. Crown reduction is one of the common techniques used today in pruning trees. This is where you cut the foliage from the outer edge into the crown, reducing the overall shape and size of the tree. When doing this type of reduction, ideally all cuts should be made to a bud or as close as you can to a partnering limb.

By doing this you can ensure that the tree has maintained its health and will not be as prone to limbs dying off or diseases. It reduces the weight of the tree and can potentially prevent limbs from becoming dangerous and snapping in adverse weather conditions. When Crown Reducing, the tree should always be balanced.

Dead Wooding

Dead Wooding is where branches or limbs die off within a tree and can either break-off or become vulnerable. These limbs can then fall over time or during periods of high winds. If dead limbs are left, they will affect the overall health of the tree as rot can set in and spread to healthy areas. This can eventually lead to fungus issues and further damage, rendering the tree beyond help.

Dead wooding is mainly used for safety and for the continued health of a tree, though there are other benefits too. A lot of dead wood in a tree reduces its aesthetic appearance and this, in turn, reduces the amount of light that can pass through and makes the tree more susceptible to high winds.

Dead Wooding Service

If dead wooding is left unattended, it attracts pests and diseases. The removal of dead wood reduces the weight of a tree and so reduces the risk of limbs breaking off. Dead Wooding is often carried out hand in hand with Crown Thinning. Reducing the risk of avoidable accidents caused by falling branches, we highly recommend that this is assessed properly and the required maintenance to be carried out rather sooner than later.
