Emergency Tree Work Aldershot

There might be some situations when you need to call a tree surgeon in an emergency, if you've got sizeable trees growing in your Aldershot garden. Aldershot tree surgeons expect to receive a huge spike in emergency call-outs when there are strong winds and storms, which is why many of them offer a 24 hour service for this eventuality. In gusty weather there's an increased potential for branches snapping off and falling onto property or passers-by, and even possibly the risk of an entire tree toppling over. When branches and tree limbs start falling squashed sheds, busted garden furniture, cracked greenhouses and damaged fences are a common result, so avoidance is preferable to having to contend with the aftermath.

When sizeable branches break of and crash onto railway tracks, public paths and streets, the local council in the Aldershot area will also often need emergency tree surgery services.

When a tree has lost some large limbs it can become lopsided or uneven, with more branches and weight on one side. This can often be both hazardous and unsightly, therefore the tree might have to undergo a "re-balancing" procedure. To take care of all of these various issues, you must get in touch with a local Aldershot tree surgeon who offers emergency 24/7 services.

Logs & Firewood Aldershot

Firewood Logs Aldershot

Tree surgeons are normally an excellent source for logs or firewood in Aldershot, if you're searching for this particular commodity. As tree surgeons spend a good deal or their time cutting down branches and trees, I guess this is hardly surprising.

Some tree surgeons in and around Aldershot might be prepared to let you have branches and logs free of charge, as they always have an excess of them to get rid of, while others will require paying for chopped and seasoned logs which are fully dried out and ready to burn.

Bunging "wet" logs on your open fire or wood burner is not a good idea, and will produce lots of smoke and clog up your flue. Only use logs which have been dried out for a minimum of 12 months and have a moisture level of 20% or less. Tree surgeons in Aldershot will mostly have supplies of assorted hardwood logs and these are really good for a long, sustained burn that will throw out heat for 3 or 4 hours. If you are also able to lay your hands on a few softwood logs, these are fantastic for starting a fire, and upon which you can throw your dry hardwood logs once the fire is roaring.

Eco-Plugging Aldershot

Stump grinding is the conventional strategy employed by most tree surgeons in Aldershot for removing large stumps. However, nowadays "eco-plugging" is is becoming more popular as a less expensive alternative to this strategy. Eco-plugging isn't only less expensive, but it is also useful for use in hard-to-reach locations where there are stump grinding accessibility problems.

Eco-plugging is an incredibly effective treatment for eliminating tree stumps and doesn't affect the surrounding vegetation and trees. Eco-plugs can be utilised during any season of the year and in all weather, and they destroy the whole root system of a stump. Containing a kind of granular glyphosate herbicide which is effective on a variety of tree species, eco-plugs give good results in 95-100% of cases.

Dutch Elm Disease

Destroying tree stocks and killing many millions of elm trees throughout Britain during the last 50 years or more, Dutch Elm Disease (Ophiostoma novo-ulmi) is not so prevalent now, as it was in the past. Unintentionally brought into Great Britain, in infected elm logs imported from Canada in the 1960's, Dutch Elm Disease (DED) is caused by a fungus called Ophiostoma novo-ulmi which is spread by the elm bark beetle (particularly the Scolytus genus).

After arriving in Great Britain, it was spread quickly through the nationwide movement of elm products such as crates, saplings, mulching bark, and firewood logs with the bark on. This terrible disease did not only impact elms in the UK, but also destroyed tree stocks in mainland Europe, North America and New Zealand. Whilst the origins of Dutch Elm Disease are as yet unproven, the suspicion is that it first originated in Asia (possibly Japan).

The signs of DED normally show up first in early summer, and manifest themselves as:

  • Twigs that turn into a "shepherd's crook" shape.
  • Affected shoots dying back from the tips.
  • Clusters of leaves that turn yellow, wilt and fall.
  • Dark spots or rings in the cross-section of twigs.

Since there are now very few large elms in the UK countryside, the beetle's habitat has been pretty much decimated, the result of which has been a slowing down of DED. The propagation of young trees that are so far resistant to DED is an ongoing project.

You could request a diagnosis from the Tree Health Diagnostic and Advisory Service, or you can get in touch with your neighbourhood tree surgeon for advice and guidance, if you have elm trees on your property in Aldershot, and suspect they might be afflicted with Dutch Elm Disease.

Tree families affected: Ulmacae and Zelkova.

Spread by - small beetles of the Scolytus genera.

Cause - fungi Ophiostoma Novo-Ulmi & Ophiostoma Ulmi.

Tree Surgery Injuries

As was mentioned earlier, the work that tree surgeons in Aldershot do, involves a significant level of danger. All possible safety measures should be implemented when working on trees, because tree work involves a high risk of injuries to both operatives and passers-by.

It would appear (according to the HSE), that falls from trees, the use of chainsaws, and being hit by a falling tree or branch are the cause of the majority of fatal and major injuries that are linked to tree work. In actual fact, arborists and tree surgeons are more at risk of being seriously injured than workers involved in the construction sector.

The most common tree surgery accidents in terms of insurance claims, involve being struck by objects (grapple hooks, branches, cranes, ropes, trees etc), slipping from ladders and lifting injuries.

All of this highlights the need for employing an experienced Aldershot tree surgeon to work on your trees. Most accidents that occur in the tree care sector are down to inexperienced workers trying to tackle tasks that they're not fully trained in. Therefore, to avoid this sort of issue, always use an established and trustworthy Aldershot company who have been working in the area for a good few years.

Protecting Trees in Winter

Whilst the winter weather conditions are seldom severe enough to justify protecting your shrubs and trees, it's always worth thinking about as a precaution. Even the most hardy of trees, shrubs and plants can find it tough during the winter months, and a bit of extra protection during times of severe cold will unquestionably be a benefit.

When you have trees in your garden in Aldershot, it is strong winds and storms that cause the biggest concerns, and they might still be at risk even though the majority of them will already have shed their leaves come winter, thus being less wind resistant. If the weather in Aldershot has been windy, and a tree in your garden seems to be weakened or at risk of toppling over, it is a good idea to bring in a tree surgeon to assess whether any remedial action is required. You can also have problems with trees due to heavy snow, so when weather like this is predicted, keep your eyes peeled for potential damage. A deep layer of mulch around the base of shrubs and trees (in particular recently planted ones), can help in keeping the roots frost-free and preventing them from becoming dehydrated.

Storm Damaged Trees Aldershot

At first glance, trees seem strong, sturdy and able to withstand just about anything that Mother Nature can inflict on them. The lifespan of most tree species far exceeds that of us humans, and in fact some types such as yews, oaks and sweet chestnuts can survive for hundreds of years.

However, trees can be quite vulnerable to the elements when facing a certain set of conditions, and it isn't merely the danger of falling tree limbs or branches, but in extreme circumstances the whole tree can fall down. The main danger to, and enemy of trees, is high winds, and with the ever increasing frequency of violent storms and extreme weather events this kind of damage is becoming more commonplace in Aldershot. Soil that becomes saturated during flooding or extended periods of rainfall can be another issue, as can heavy snow in winter.

It's recommended that you get a certified Aldershot tree surgeon to check out your trees to lessen the chance of issues with your trees in severe weather conditions, they will prune and remove any dead or overhanging branches that could be an issue.

Taller trees can also be fitted with copper conductors, lightning rods, or other protection systems, to stop them being struck by lightning and to prevent nearby property and buildings being affected by jumps or "arcs". A lightning strike could kill a tree, or severely weaken it, making it more susceptible to pest attacks or disease. You may not believe that lightning strikes are that common, however in the UK alone there are approximately 300,000 lightning strikes recorded each year.

If you're anxious about the chance of storm damage to your trees in Aldershot, you should ask what your local tree care specialist can do to protect them, and lessen the risk of accidents occurring.
