Tree Contractors West Yorkshire

Sometimes a tree gets to a point where trimming and pruning it are no longer adequate and it no longer fits in with your garden or it becomes necessary to have it removed before it causes untold damage to your property or injures someone.

When Is It Time To Remove A Tree?

Some of the main causes for tree removal are

  • The foliage of the tree has lost its visual appeal due to disease, or bugs destroying its limbs and leaves.
  • Limbs, branches and leaves have grown too close to your buildings and are now blocking the sunlight from coming into your premises, and causing moisture build up on the walls and roof due to blocking the sun from them.
  • The tree has been battered by a storm and sustained some structural damage. The tree could now cause damage to your property or injure someone with falling branches or it could completely fall over, causing even more serious damage.
  • You are wanting to change the landscaped outlook of your garden and the old tree does not fit in with the aesthetics of your new look garden.
  • The tree’s roots are starting to pose a threat to your property’s foundation or to the underground pipe work.

Felling The Tree Yourself

Sometime people who have a tree that they want removing attempt to remove the tree themselves or they use unqualified contractors. Tree removal is a complex and potentially dangerous job and should only be carried out by tree surgeons because:

  • If the roots are not removed correctly then the tree can grow again.
  • Old tree stumps which have not been removed correctly are not just an eyesore they are also potentially dangerous.
  • Our tree surgeons know how to use the latest equipment to help them climb and access difficult areas.
  • Using the wrong tools or techniques when dismantling a tree can cause untold damages to your property or even severely injure someone.

Tree Maintenance

Regular pruning helps to improve the growth of a developing tree and it also corrects the shape of mature ones. Every cut that we make to a tree has a lasting effect, which can be good or bad. This is why a professional maintenance plan for your trees is a wise investment.

Most Important Tree Trimming Services For The Home

Everyone loves the "tropical" feel of a palm tree. A palm tree is one of the most recognized tropical trees. A tropical tree is very different in structure from a Northern tree. A tropical tree is usually long and skinny. Most tropical trees have green leaves that seem to hang from the tree much like a person's hair. If you are landscaping your yard nothing give s a "tropical" feel like a palm tree. Many beginners are bewildered about the proper care and maintenance that a palm tree requires. What type of tropical tree should you choose?

The above question can be answered in three separate parts. One of the factors you must consider is that palm trees cold hardiness, sunlight and height requirements. For example if you live in a very cold part of the country you would not be able to plant a tropical tree outdoors because the tree would not receive enough sunlight or warm temperatures. The cold will eventually kill the tropical tree. If you live in a colder environment you may want to consider investing in a tropical tree that can be grown indoors.

There are several different types of palm trees. Some of the most popular types of palm trees are lady palm trees, Puerto Rican thatch palm trees and silver saw palmetto palm trees. Each of these types of palm trees has palmate leaves. A palmate leaf has lobes that fan out from one common point. The structure of the palmate leaf resembles an open hand. The leaves radiate from the Palm so to speak.

The other types of palm trees that are found in a tropical climate have pinnate leaves. The types of palm trees with pinnate leaves are mountain cabbage palm trees, queen palm trees and date palm trees. Now, there are certain tropical trees that can be kept indoors. Indoor tropical trees include the bamboo tree, lady palm tree and the Kentia tree.

A tropical tree tends to conjure images in ones head of sunny, bright blue skies, warm temperatures and a sandy beach. When one thinks of paradise an image of a tropical tree may appear. This is a false statement though. There are tropical trees that can grow beautifully under sunny skies or partial to full shade.

A taller tropical tree tends to be a sun lover while a shorter tropical tree can grow in the shade. If you want to plant both types of tropical trees in your backyard you may want to plant a taller tropical tree next to a shorter tropical tree. This way the taller tropical tree will provide adequate shade for the shorter tree.

A tropical tree is a symbol that we all recognize. Many of us who have fond memories of the Pacific Ocean remember the tall, skinny tropical trees that dotted the landscape. A tropical tree is a remembrance of warm weather, fun in the sun and a hint of paradise. A tropical tree is a great landscaping idea, outdoors and indoors, no matter where you live. Bring paradise to your home even in the winter months.

Tree Trimming Costs - What Factors In?

tree falling

A tree trimmer is a landscape profession who prunes trees to promote the health of the tree, for safety if it is in danger of it falling on a person or property, and to promote aesthetics. In their line of work, they use many specialized power and hand tools to trip, dispose of tree branches, shape, and cut trees.

When working as a tree trimmer it is very important that they use the proper tree trimming equipment. What equipment the tree trimmer chooses to use depends on the type of job they are doing. Some of the different, important tree trimming equipment that they might use can include:

• Safety harness-this is an important piece of equipment that a tree trimmer needs for their job. This piece of equipment ensures the tree climbers safety if they should fall. The most common type of safety harness is called the climbing saddle. It has nylon straps that securely fit about their thighs and waist along with an anchor in which to attach a rope with a carabineer. A carabineer is a coupling link with a safety closure.


• Chipper-this machine s used to chip brush and branches into bark size pieces for easier disposal or for resale. A chipper comes in two styles for industrial or personal use. The personal size chipper is compact, small and can be towed behind a regular truck for doing small jobs. For industrial size jobs, the tree trimmer should have a chip truck. With this type of chipper the brush can be chipped directly, back in the truck. This will allow for easier clean and transport.

4 Things to Look for In Your Tree Removal Estimate

Trees then and now
When I was a boy I was surrounded by trees. One step out my back door and there they were, trees of all sizes and shapes.. But where are those trees now? New homes have so much stone, so much grey, and so little green, they are surrounded by walls, brick fortresses, built to keep us safe. Trees aren't safe, there fun, they're beautiful, they don't tell others to keep out, not like a brick wall does. A tree is welcoming, and that does not seem to be popular these days. They take time to care for, time to water, time to prune. Stone
doesn't need us to care for it, stone is happy alone.

My father and trees
My father was always so enthusiastic about the trees in our yard, he took special care to explain the different varieties to anyone who would listen. He would tell them about a certain tree and where it came from, when he planted it, and how much fruit it had given to him. I dare say he spoke more about the trees than he did me. Of course I didn't give him buckets of fresh fruit, and I cost a lot more to raise than the few dollars it took to fertilize a tree. Dad would often arrive home from the office, change out of his stuffy suit, grab his pruning shears, and head outside to give his trees a little trim. He was at his happiest then.

Why plant more trees?
We all know how trees benefit the environment and how they give us clean air to breathe. Did you know that one tree releases enough oxygen into the atmosphere to support two people? Other than clean air, trees supply us with food in the form of fruit. One apple tree in your back yard can supply an apple a day to a family of five. Apples are just the beginning though, depending on your local climate, you can plant plum trees, apricot trees, citrus or pear trees, and a host of others. As well, a fruit tree will feed the local bird population and keep small animals fed and happy. Besides providing fruit, trees give us shade, privacy, and nesting areas for the local bird population. There is so much a tree can offer to you and your family. We need trees to feel something softer than stone, something only a tree can give, a connection to something outside of ourselves. So today I am going to plant a tree, and I hope you'll do the same.
