Have you ever used professional services for your garden? If you have, you probably heard of tree surgery. It's one of the more complicated services provided. And since it's the near end of winter in London, I think you might need this procedure soon.
What does an arborist do? These people don't maintain whole forests. They mostly concentrate on individual trees. It's a tough job, because it needs a lot of practice, knowledge to work with the equipment, certificates, be fearless (or at least have head for heights). And why do we need such people? Look outside. What do you see? Bad weather, wind, rain, snow. This could be damaging for the trees and their branches.
A branch could fall and hurt a person or a property. That's why it's better to take care of the dangerous ones before the accident happens. But it is not only about the branches. A respectful tree surgeon, like a real doctor, can do all kinds of procedures on a tree. From removing the whole plant, to pruning and plastic surgery (crown shaping).
Arborists can even remove stumps or reduce the height.
Everything is done with some professional equipment. There are a few types of chain saws. There are safety ropes, hooks, eyeware. Safety always comes first, because you are not only operating with powerful cutting tools, you are using them at 10 feet height, hanging on ropes.
Let's check every sub-service a little more thorough.
If you have a small garden, but that big apple tree has grown far too much, you will need a crown reduction service. You will make the foliage smaller and better looking. This way your garden will be more tidy.
This is not just trimming, but you are keeping your trees healthy. You remove selected parts - branches, roots, to help the growth of the plant. Deadwood removal is one of the most popular segments of this. You are literally expanding the life of your sapling.
Dealing With Dangerous Trees
Specially after some winter storms or heavy snowing, trees can become a danger. A branch could easily hurt or even kill a man when falling. And it could cause tons of damage to property. You've probably seen smashed cars and roofs on the news. If you use this service, you will be preventing such events.
Here the surgeons remove big trees one part at a time. If you do it the old lumberjack way, the big tree might fall and cause damage to nearby houses. But if you dismantle it, the danger is zero.
And the biggest bonus in using London tree surgeons is that you don't have to lift a finger. Different companies have different prices, so you make your choice. But it's better to use professionals, because it might be too threatening for you to do it alone.
