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.

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.
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 Felling And Tree Removal
Tree felling and tree removal is the main type of task that our Ilkley tree surgeons are called upon to perform. If you have a dead or decaying tree or a tree that has been damaged in a storm then there is a danger that limbs may fall off or the entire tree may fall down. 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.

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.

Actual Estimates on Tree and Stump Removal Cost
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.

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:
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!
