Kiveton Park Tree Surgery and Tree Care Services

Kiveton Park Tree Surgeons (S26) South Yorkshire: Trees are an important feature of many gardens and properties in Kiveton Park, and they can often transform a largely 2 dimensional landscape by adding style, structure and substance. But problems can occur when trees have been poorly maintained or are affected by severe weather conditions such as flooding or storms. If your trees need attention, it is the best option to consult an established tree surgeon in Kiveton Park, for their advice and guidance prior to any work beginning.

Kiveton Park Tree Surgeon Quotes (S26)

Folks in Kiveton Park who attempt to do tree work on their own, or by using non-qualified personnel may cause a risk of damage to property, the trees and to life. But even hiring a seasoned tree surgeon who's aware of all the hazards does not mean that tree work is safe. In fact tree surgery is one of the most dangerous jobs in the United Kingdom, with an average of three deaths and a hundred and forty serious injuries annually within the industry, hence it's certainly not safe work for amateurs.

There is also a danger to life from neglected or damaged trees in Kiveton Park, since around five people a year are tragically killed in the United Kingdom by falling branches and trees. You may be liable to third-party compensation claims due to the consequences of your actions, if you employ someone to conduct tree work and property is damaged, or an injury occurs. This is why retaining the services of an experienced Kiveton Park tree surgeon to carry out the work on your trees is very important. (The source of the above figures was HSE UK).

There are two main professional trade bodies, one or both of which a competent tree surgeon in Kiveton Park should be a signed up member of. Both the International Society of Arboriculture and the Arboricultural Association offers a website where you can check out the membership and professional standing of any tree surgeon. Membership of either of these two bodies will give the tree surgeon ARB Approved Contractor status which can be checked on this website.

You will be able to contact these professional organisations for arbitration assistance and for help and guidance at any stage, if an issue arises during or after any work has been finished.

Approved Tree Surgeons Kiveton Park (01909)

If any tree surgeon who you're unable to find on this directory list offers you a quotation, you should respectfully decline their offer of work and carry on your search for an approved contractor. When their qualifications and professional memberships have been meticulously checked, you should try and get at least three price quotes from different companies in and around Kiveton Park. Whilst obtaining these quotations you must ask the following questions, stating you need to know the answers due to the risks involved with the work:

  • How much insurance cover is provided? Your tree surgeon should be able to show you an insurance certificate covering at the least five million pounds public liability, as stated by the AA and ISA.
  • Can you offer me a quotation in writing? Verbal quotes alone aren't acceptable. Always try to get a quote in writing.
  • Would it be possible for me to contact someone you have recently worked for, so that I can inspect your tree work? Doing an independent check on any recent work is always a good idea.
  • Have you got documentary evidence of your qualifications, professional membership and a NPTC/LANTRA certificate for the use of a chainsaw? Any tree surgeon using a chainsaw, must by law have a NPTC/LANTRA certificate. A professional tree surgeon in Kiveton Park could hold Certificates and National Diplomas in Arboriculture.

The written quote that you're provided with must include easy to follow details about the proposed work. It should mention who is responsible for the removal of waste, tree branches and stumps, and should also include specifics of any trees which may be protected in law, and the steps necessary to get permission to work on them. Unless you're a commercial entity, you should also make certain that VAT is included on the quotation. It is important that only skilled people are hired to work on your property and trees, and this is wholly down to you. This is laid out by the "Common law duty of care responsibilities and sometimes liabilities under the Occupier's Liability Acts of 1957 and 1984."

PRIOR TO WORK - Checking into the possibility of any of your trees having protected status, your chosen Kiveton Park tree surgeon should make sure that any work gets the green light from the appropriate local authorities. Finding that a tree has protected status does not mean that work cannot be carried out, since even protected trees need maintenance in order to cut back dead or dying wood and ensure the safety of the public.

If your property in Kiveton Park is inside a conservation area, the Local Planning Authority will need a minimum of six weeks written notice of any planned tree work. This notice isn't required if the stem of the tree is under seventy five millimetres in diameter when measured at 1.5m above ground level. If the branches of a protected tree need pruning or thinning to encourage and sustain growth, it is also not necessary to give notice.

Tree Surgery Kiveton Park (S26)

After fully assessing the health of the trees on your property, your chosen Kiveton Park tree surgeon will determine the necessary treatments and how the required outcome can best be accomplished. This will involve performing a full risk assessment to include your property, public areas and any parts of a neighbour's property that could be affected by falling debris and branches. The quantity of workers needed and the level of protection required, will also be determined at this stage. To keep the public and other property safe from harm or damage, this will include both PPE (personal protective equipment) and other safety measures.

ON THE DAY OF WORK - Cones, barriers and safety measures should be put in place before any tree felling, climbing or cutting of branches is started, to keep passers-by and unauthorised persons away from the area where work is going on. When there is the possibility of branches and debris crashing onto a road, it might be necessary to halt the traffic briefly.

Different kinds of tree work will demand that the tree surgeon has varying degrees of protection. As the bare minimum when doing chainsaw work they will be wearing specialist protective clothing to prevent cutting injuries to the legs, hands and torso. All operatives involved in the work should be wearing head and eye protection, and high visibility clothing, at all times.

Climbing equipment and ladders will be needed if working at height is involved, and to help with the safe removal of high branches and heavy pieces of tree trunk, additional workers will be needed. It's advisable to inform your neighbours of the need for access, since a skip or pickup truck for removing the waste will be stationed as close as possible to the work area.

AFTER COMPLETION OF WORK - Upon completion of all the tree work, the area can be cleared of all debris, and all of the branches and waste can be transported away. A certificate of work done should then be prepared by your tree surgeon, especially where the trees are covered by TPOs, which will be signed off and a copy given to you. If any public spaces required safety measures, this protection will be taken away and roads and pathways will be re-opened to the public.

If you've got any issues or problems with the finished work, you should first address them with your tree surgeon so that they can be put right immediately. If your tree surgeon is a registered member of a trade body, and there's any further dispute, you can get advice and guidance from the Arboricultural Association or the International Society of Arboriculture so as to arrive at an acceptable solution.

Ash Dieback

A highly infectious fungal disease of ash trees that was first reported in the UK in 2012, ash dieback is expected to wipe out about eighty percent of the current ash tree stock. Set to have a huge impact on our countryside, ash dieback is likely to be just as catastrophic as the preceding epidemic of Dutch Elm Disease.

A disease that affects trees of the Fraxinus genus, it has an especially devastating effect on Fraxinus excelsior, the common ash that is native to Britain. Originally coming from Asia, the fungus which causes the disease is named Hymenoscyphus fraxineus.

Now present in most regions of Britain, ash dieback is dispersed by wind blown spores which are able to travel for tens of miles.

Ash dieback has an effect on trees of all ages and has the following symptoms:

  • Leaves with dark patches that develop during mid to late summer.
  • Dark brown necrotic lesions (often diamond shaped) form where branches meet the trunk.
  • Dying leaves and shoots are visible in summer.
  • Leaves that wilt, turn black and fall early.
  • New epicormic growth appearing from buds that were previously seen to be dormant.

Stronger ash can fend off the infection to some extent, but ultimately succumb to continued attacks, year-after-year. There's currently no effective treatment for ash dieback, and no apparent method for stopping its spread.

While instances of ash dieback can be reported to the Forestry Commission's "Tree Alert Service", it's so widespread all over Britain that they're really only interested in cases which are found in locations not affected previously. If you think that you have a tree suffering from ash dieback on your property in Kiveton Park, you can still speak to a local tree surgeon, who can offer guidance and advice about how best to proceed - ultimately the tree will have to be removed.

Trees which are affected by ash dieback: Fraxinus excelsior, Fraxinus ornus, Fraxinus mandschurica, Fraxinus angustifolia, Fraxinus nigra, Fraxinus americana, Fraxinus pennsylvanica.

Dutch Elm Disease

Devastating tree stocks and killing millions of precious elm trees right through Great Britain during the last 50 years or more, Dutch Elm Disease (Ophiostoma novo-ulmi) isn't so widespread now, as it was in the past. Spread by the elm bark beetle and caused by the Ophiostoma novo-ulmi fungus, DED (Dutch Elm Disease) was inadvertently brought into Britain from Canada in the 1960s.

Through the transportation of elm products like bark mulch, crates, saplings, and firewood logs with the bark still attached, it was spread rapidly through the United Kingdom after first arriving. It was not just Great Britain that was affected by this awful disease, as the stocks of elm trees were also decimated in mainland Europe, North America and New Zealand.

DED normally first manifests in early summer, and the main symptoms are:

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

Due to disease and the chopping down of infected, dying and dead trees, there are not many large elms surviving in the British countryside, therefore the spread has slowed and the beetle's habitat essentially decimated. There's a continuing project for propagating young elms that are resistant to DED.

If you have elms in your garden in Kiveton Park, and have suspicions that they may be affected by Dutch Elm Disease, contact your local tree surgeon for advice, or ask for a diagnosis from the Tree Health Diagnostic & Advisory Service (THDAS).

Chainsaws in Tree Surgery


When it comes to the equipment that is utilised by Kiveton Park tree surgeons, the most commonly seen is the chainsaw. Petrol powered chainsaws are the most preferred by professionals, due to their ease of use and greater mobility, although mains electric versions are available, and battery operated chainsaws are getting more popular. Petrol driven chainsaws are the only serious choice for the heaviest tree work, being very powerful, robust and able to slice effortlessly through branches and trunks of any proportions.

Essentially, a chainsaw consists of a motor-driven chain that has a row of sharp teeth for slicing through bark and inner wood. For the different tasks that are required, there are various types of chainsaw, pole saws for hard to reach branches and long distance pruning, rear-handled for work at ground level (two handed) and top-handled for working at height (and which can be operated with one hand).

Although clambouring up a tree with a spinning blade in your hand is a pretty dangerous activity, it is rare to see a professional Kiveton Park tree surgeon who does not use a chainsaw. So as to gain membership of the AA (Arboricultural Association), being trained in the safe use and maintenance of chainsaws is one of the main requirements for professional tree surgeons.

The most popular makes of chainsaw used in the UK by specialist tree surgeons are Hyundai, Husqvarna, Makita and Stihl, although there are various different brands and models.

Eco-Plugging Tree Stumps Kiveton Park

If you have large stumps in your garden that need to be removed, the conventional strategy employed by most tree surgeons in Kiveton Park is stump grinding. However, these days "eco-plugging" is widely recognised as a more affordable alternative to this approach. This method is not just helpful because it is cheaper, but also due to the fact that it can be used in hard-to-reach locations where there may be stump grinding accessibility problems.

Eco-plugging is an incredibly effective treatment for killing tree stumps and doesn't affect the surrounding vegetation and trees. Eco-plugs can be employed in any weather conditions and throughout the year, and they eliminate the tree stump by killing off the whole root system. Containing a kind of granular glyphosate herbicide, eco-plugs are 95% to 100% effective, and is suitable for a variety of tree species.

Wood Chipping Kiveton Park

Wood Chipping Kiveton Park

To break down the branches, tree limbs and vegetation that tree surgery creates, most experienced Kiveton Park tree surgeons will use wood chipping devices on a regular basis. Depending on what equipment is being used, these awesome wood chipping machines can munch up as much as forty tonnes of material per hour, although approximately 5 tonnes every hour can be processed by the smaller, more frequently used machines.

As well as providing a handy material that can be put to a number of uses including; landscaping, biomass fuel, weed prevention, wood pulp, ecosystem restoration, cultivating mushrooms, mulching gardens and garden walkways, chopping down timber in this way makes it less cumbersome to transport.

In most cases, Kiveton Park tree surgeons will cart away all the wood chips that result from your tree surgery, unless you need them for one of the above uses, in which case they will generally be pleased to let you keep some or all of them. Even if you don't need any tree surgery to be done on your property in Kiveton Park, tree surgeons are still a great source for wood chippings that you can use for various purposes in your garden. Certain tree surgeons will supply you with wood chippings free, others will charge, especially if you want them delivered.

Well known makes of wood chipping machinery include Forst, Timberwolf, Hyundai and Forest Master.

Storm Damage Kiveton Park

When looking at a sturdy, strong tree standing proud and tall in your garden it is difficult to picture it ever falling to the ground. The lifespan of most tree species far exceeds that of animals or humans, and in actual fact some types such as oaks, sweet chestnuts and yews can live and continue to grow for hundreds (even thousands) of years.

Nonetheless, they can be quite vulnerable to the elements when faced with a certain set of conditions, and it isn't just the danger of falling limbs or branches, but in extreme circumstances the entire tree can fall down. High winds and gales pose serious problems for trees, and this form of damage has become more and more common in Kiveton Park, as the number of violent storms and weather events escalates with climate change. Heavy snowfall during winter can also be a problem, as can waterlogged soil resulting from flooding or extended periods of rain.

So as to be ready for any issues that could occur during times of severe weather, it is advisable to have an experienced Kiveton Park tree surgeon prune and remove any dead or overhanging branches, and check for any further issues.

Lightning rods, copper conductors, or other protection systems are also important for taller trees, to lessen the chances of them being struck by lightning and to protect nearby buildings and property which could be affected by side-flashes ("jumps") that can cause further destruction, in addition to damage done to the tree itself. A tree that's struck by lightning can be severely weakened or even killed, a weakened tree can be left vulnerable to disease, pests or decay - not the happiest of situations! Lightning is more common than you may believe, and there are approximately 300 thousand lightning strikes every year in the UK alone.

Your local Kiveton Park tree care specialist will be able to offer advice on what can be done to protect your trees from being damaged by storms, and lessen the risk of mishaps occurring as a result of this.
