Planting Trees

If you are thinking of planting a tree in your garden then a tree surgeon would initially give you advice on the best type of tree for you to buy and the best area of your garden to plant the tree in. We can then will work to prepare the area the tree is going to be planted in by handling such things as the types of mulch and dirt preparation areas for the tree. This is important because the first few days of when a tree has been re-planted is one of the most important times of the tree’s life.

Mulching Services

Our tree surgery team can also advise you and help you with the correct type and amount of mulch required to keep your garden in tip top condition. We will deliver the mulch to your home and lay it for you. Mulch is ideal to be used around a tree to support its growth and stability.

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.

Tree Trimming Equipment

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!
