Do Your Trees Need Pruning Or Trimming?
If you are like a number of people in Castleford then you will have either one or a number of trees in your garden. Trees just like the plants in your garden need looking after or they can not only become unsightly but they can also become dangerous.
When you see professional tree surgeon performing tree pruning and trimming services they make it seem easy, but there is lot more to maintaining your tree than just cutting and trimming a few branches here and there. While you can do some tasks with your pruners and a saw, most of the jobs are best left to qualified and experienced tree surgeons.
The terms trimming and pruning are often interchangeably used to denote cutting trees, but for clarification, trimming is for grooming the tree, whereas pruning has to do with the tree’s health, as well as the safety of people and structures near the tree. Correct pruning and trimming has to do with what portions to cut, how much, and when to do it.
Our Castleford tree surgeons team can play an important role in every area of your garden. They can not only advise you on the best practices to maintain the health and beauty of your trees but they can also diagnose and treat any illness your tree might sustain and also advise you on the best pest control methods for your situation. We also deal with the tree roots, soil maintenance and provide a 24 hour emergency tree removal service for if you think your tree has been badly damaged in a storm. Before going down the tree felling and tree removal route one of our tree surgeons will first check the tree for any splits, cracked limbs and any other storm damage. If it is possible we will repair the tree and remove any broken or cracked limbs to make the tree safe again. If he tree has fallen or is irreparable then we will safely remove the tree for you.
So whether you are looking at trimming a few branches from your tree, want your tree checked for diseases or storm damage, an entire tree removed, a stump ground down or removed or just some advise on how to best maintain your trees then call one of our Castleford tree surgery team today

Stump Grinding or Removal
If you have an old sump in your garden that has started to decay or is infested with bugs then we can remove the stump and treat the area if required. Depending on the size of the stump and the roots that are attached to it our tree surgeon will decide on whether to actually remove the stump completely or whether to grind the stump. In stump grinding your tree stump will be ground right down so that it is well below the surface of ur garden enabling you to develop any type of landscaping projects in that area.

Limbs breaking off or the tree falling down could severely injure somebody or damage property and cars. We can safely remove the tree for you. Depending on the size of the tree and the area it is in we might be able to fell the tree in one piece or we might have to dismantle the tree and remove it in pieces. We will also remove the stump.

Tree Trimming - Is Your Tree Diseased?
Do you know if one of those stunning trees in your yard is ready to fall when the next storm blows through? Unfortunately, this is a very real threat as falling trees or limbs can injure you, your children or your home. While tree removal is a last resort, it's still a good idea to regularly inspect the trees on your yard for hazards and know how to recognize a tree that needs to be removed. Once you understand these signs, you'll know when it's time to call a tree company.
Annual Tree Inspections are Important
At least once per year, inspect all of your trees for signs of disease, decay or structural problems. You'll also need to check the trees after each severe storm, as large trees can easily fall if their anchor roots are damaged or the ground becomes too soaked. If you catch the problem in time, a tree service company can remove it before serious damage occurs.
How to Inspect Your Trees
So, how should you inspect your trees for problems? Start by looking at the overall condition of the tree. Trees that are sick usually have off-color leaves or red pine needles. If the tree has green on the crown, it may still be hazardous or sick as the branches or trunk can be structurally weak due to disease or rot. Use binoculars to look at the high branches and try to spot any broken limbs or weak branch unions, which means the limbs are ready to fall at any time.
6 High-Risk Issues to Look For
Now, let's move on to identifying some of the biggest problems you need to look for. All of these problems represent a major safety hazard and may indicate it's time for a tree remova specialist to pay a visit.
Cracked bark. If your tree has bark that's starting to crack, this is a sign that the tree is sick or dying. Call a tree service company if you notice 2+ cracks in the same spot or very deep cracking.
Weak branch unions. Check how well the branches appear to be attached to the tree, as weak unions have no integrity and the branches may come falling down. This is a common issue with elm and maple.
Tree cankers. These sunken spots in the bark or areas where the bark is completely missing may either be a wound or a sign of disease.
Strange shape. Does your tree have a weird shape that seems poorly formed? These trees may require removal because they lack structural integrity.
Decay. Serious decay is a problem and you can usually spot it if there are mushrooms growing on your tree or right at the base. Dead branches. Dead wood is unpredictable and very brittle. Strong winds or a storm can easily send these branches crashing down onto your family or your home. Tree trimming is necessary to remove these hazards.
Common Tree Issues There are a number of tree diseases that are common throughout most tree species. Here's a look at some of them, along with symptoms you should look for. Most of these diseases require removal. Tree removal sometimes requires a permit so make sure you have this in order before you have the tree felled.
Oak Leaf Blister. This disease affects oak trees, causing the leaves to look blistered on the upper surface with depressions on the underside. The leaves will eventually start to curl and leaves may drop prematurely. This disease typically starts in the spring and spores are then spread in the rain or wind. This disease is treated with a fungicide.
Tubakia Leaf Spot. This disease causes brown spots to appear on the foliage, along with cankers on the twigs. Red oaks are particularly prone to catching this fungal infection and the best way to address it is to increase air flow on the tree.
Bacterial Leaf Scorch. This disease leaves red or yellow borders and makes leaves appear scorched. It's spread by insects and close contact to other trees and infected trees usually require removal.
Armillaria Root Rot. Finally, this fungi infects the roots of the tree and may be hard to detect unless you see mushrooms growing on the tree's base. It causes the crown to die, stunts the tree's growth and eventually kills the tree, requiring removal.
Remember, inspecting your trees annually is an important task for you to do. If your tree loses its leaves right before it gets them and right after it loses them are great times to inspect. Even if they don't lose their leaves those two times are usually in the beginning of Spring and the end of Fall.

What Can A Tree Service Do?
Despite your vigilance, the tell-tale signs are there: your tree is filled with dead limbs, hasn't developed buds despite the fact that it's late spring and looks a bit, well, dead. Before you call your local landscaper to tear down the tree, put down the phone and take a closer look. Is your tree really dead?
Perform this quick test to determine if your tree is dead or just sick: snap off a small tree branch. How difficult was it to break the branch? Did the limb snap right off, or did you have to put effort into it? Is the inside of the limb dry as dust, or is there still some moisture? Moisture means life - so if you've determined that your tree isn't dead, it's likely to be diseased. Get ready to put on your punching gloves, because here's how to fight back against tree disease:
Stop All Extra Maintenance. While this may seem contrary to your natural instincts, fertilizing and mulching a diseased tree is highly ineffective, and can even be dangerous. Most tree diseases can be fought against naturally, so give the roots of your tree room to breathe by refraining from fertilizing and mulching. After all, the point is to let your tree heal - not overwhelm it by encouraging extraordinary growth!
On The Other Hand... When you have a diseased tree on your hands, you will need to give it a little extra TLC than usual. Water your tree as often as possible, as a diseased tree will have more difficulty retaining moisture than a healthy tree. Additionally, don't mow around a diseased tree, as you'll put the tree at risk for wounds inflicted by the blades; hand clippers will work equally as well here.
Don't Over prune. Diseased trees will have plenty of dead limbs; however, don't get carried away with your pole pruner, as this will only exacerbate a bad thing. Prune any major dead limbs, but don't cut more than ¼ of the tree's limbs.
Call In The Professionals. Most trees can fight disease on their own with little assistance from you; however, there's one disease that needs the help of a professional to beat: Dutch Elm Disease. If you suspect that your tree has been inflicted with Dutch Elm, call a landscaper or arborist right away, as this serious disease can wipe out a whole forest in a matter of months.
Spray for bugs - along with removing dead limbs, its critical that there isn't infestation in the tree. Make sure the tree is treated for ANY infestation, because infestation will result in death if left untreated.
Tree trimming and pruning - Its important that you remove dead limbs, however you don't want to scalp the tree. If you have doubt as to your ability to trim it up nicely call in your local tree trimmer for help, the costs are insignificant when compared to the immediate and lasting results.
When it comes to tree disease, it's better to be safe than sorry. If following these expert tips hasn't helped, don't hesitate to call upon a professional to help you out - the health of your tree will thank you for it!
