Arborists – also known as ‘tree surgeons’ or ‘tree doctors’ – are trained professionals in arboriculture who have studied the art and science of planting, caring for, maintaining and diagnosing issues with all types of trees, shrubs and other woody plant life.
While some trees will require little or no maintenance, others may need a little help along the way to stay healthy and safe. Here are three ways you can help ensure your trees thrive for many years to come.
Difficult, dangerous and large tree removals should not be handled by any old tree removal company. These are situations where you should call in an expert tree surgeon like Heritage Tree Surgeons.
The most common cause of injury when it comes to DIY jobs is falls, including from ladders. Working at heights always includes some risk – especially if you are not fitted out with all the necessary safety equipment and lack the expertise.
If you are planning to remove a tree from your garden – or have recently done so using Heritage Tree Surgeons – you might be wondering how to fill the space. The removal or a tree, whether big or small, could leave a feeling of emptiness in your garden.
The price of tree removal can vary greatly, because trees come in all shapes, sizes and heights. Naturally, the larger the tree, the more it is going to cost to have it cut down. The best way to establish how much it is going to cost you to have a tree cut down is to contact Heritage Tree Surgeons
There are many mistakes to be made when pruning. That’s why we suggest leaving pruning to the experts, like qualified arborists. Here are a few easy mistakes to make when pruning a tree. The right way to prune a tree is quite simple: leave it to the professionals.
Some tree cavities indicate that there’s a serious risk of your tree falling over. A hole in your tree can be a sign that its structural integrity is compromised and that even a strong gust of wind could send it toppling over. Before you get yourself in a frenzy, don’t panic: not all tree cavities imply that your tree is at risk of falling. Here are some tell-tale signs that your tree cavity is serious
Tree colour is one of the main indicators of whether or not your tree is healthy. For most deciduous trees, or trees that shed their leaves annually, the leaves should be green in spring and summer, and yellow, orange of red in autumn. If your tree has a dead branch or two, it’s a sign that it needs care. Dead branches never grow back; instead, they invite insects and pests to make a home out of your tree, possibly damaging it further.
The start of winter is generally the best time to get any tree work done. This is because autumn has just passed and your trees are dormant – the leaves have already fallen off and there’s less work to do in terms of cleaning up after pruning or tree removal. There are many reasons to get tree work done at the start of winter.
