Wing Tree Care and Tree Surgery

Wing Tree Surgeons (LU7): So, you're keen on your garden and are enthusiastic about doing all the gardening jobs which crop up through the year. But, there are certain particular jobs which you should not really try by yourself. One of these jobs is tree surgery (arboriculture). If you've got anything that needs to be done to your trees in Wing, apart from tidying up or pruning, you'll want to bring in a licenced tree surgeon.

Wing Tree Surgery Quotes

Tree surgeons can be hired for all kinds of reasons pertaining to trees. The most commonplace aside from dealing with dangerous or wind ravaged trees are removing old tree stumps that are causing a nuisance, monitoring trees for disease or damage so that these issues will be dealt with before they get any worse, reducing or thinning trees to provide more space and light in the garden and creating tree management or maintenance plans to keep the trees in good shape. The removal of dangerous or damaged trees is clearly what they are best known for, and you will sometimes notice them at their work after storms and gales.

Before you employ a tree surgeon you should ensure that that they're affiliated with the Arboricultural Association, the main professional trade body for tree surgeons within the United Kingdom. It is also crucial that they've got the appropriate public liability insurance so that all accidents or mishaps are covered, plus they ought to be glad to assist you with filling in applications for approval to do the tree work from the local authority for Wing. A tree inspection must be completed before work begins to make certain your trees are not protected by a Preservation Order or located inside a Conservation Area.

The safety and protection of your home and your family as well as that of the tree surgeon himself (or herself), is the main concern when work such as this is being conducted. So you should make sure that your tree surgeon has access to all of the essential equipment and tools and has the ability to use them effectively. For somebody who knows what they are up to and is adequately equipped, tree surgery is a reasonably simple procedure.

Tree Surgeons Wing (LU7)

Using climbing and tree surgery apparatus should come as second nature to a competent tree surgeon, and he or she will happily get working using climbing ropes, rigging ropes, winches, stump grinding equipment, lowering winches, slacklines, rigging plates, loppers, pole saws, wood shredders, harnesses and chain saws. This equipment can be quite elaborate and has been created to render the process of tree surgery both easier and safer.

The proper disposal of waste should be a moral responsibility for any tree surgeon, therefore you must confirm that your prospective tradesman heeds that rule. Honest tree surgeons will be able to show you their waste carriers licence, which allows them to dispose of waste materials appropriately. The safe and ethical disposal of any waste that results from any work in your garden really should be included in your estimate, so check this before any work starts.

Tree Surgery Accidents

As we've already explained, tree care professionals in Wing carry out work that can be pretty hazardous. With a high risk of injuries to both operatives, co-workers and passers-by, all possible precautions must be implemented when working on trees.

A large majority of fatal and serious injuries are related to the use of chainsaws, falls from trees, and being struck by a falling branch or tree, according to the HSE (Health & Safety Executive). Surprisingly, arborists and tree surgeons are more at risk of serious injury than those involved in building and construction.

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

This will all help you understand why it's so critical to choose a professional tree surgeon in Wing. Inexperienced workers attempting tasks that they are not properly trained in, accounts for most accidents in the tree care sector. Using an established and reputable company that has been trading in the Wing area for several years, is the simplest way to sidestep such problems, and get your tree care work done correctly and safely.

Leylandii Hedge Removal

In Wing, many homeowners favour the Leylandii hedge due to its fast growth and ability to offer privacy. Yet, they have the tendency to grow excessively and become challenging to manage. When it comes to removing a Leylandii hedge, there are a few important things to consider. The initial step is to make sure that the hedge is not covered by any legal designations or restrictions, such as a Tree Preservation Order. If the hedge is protected, you will have to acquire authorisation from the local council before removing it. Also, Leylandii hedges can have intricate root structures, stressing the need to engage a certified tree surgeon to safely remove the hedge and its roots. Finally, it's crucial to dispose of the hedge waste in a responsible and eco-friendly way after its removal. To wrap up, removing a Leylandii hedge can be a challenging and potentially hazardous task, highlighting the importance of taking the appropriate safety measures and potentially seeking the guidance of an expert.

Ash Dieback (Hymenoscyphus Fraxineus)

First documented in the UK in 2021, ash dieback is a dangerous fungal disease that's likely to decimate close to 80% of the current ash tree stock, over the coming years. Ash dieback is set to have a huge impact on our beloved countryside, adding to the damage resulting from the earlier Dutch Elm Disease outbreak.

A highly destructive disease of trees of the Fraxinus genus, ash dieback has an especially devastating effect on the Fraxinus excelsior (common ash), British Fraxinus excelsior (common or European ash). Originating in eastern Asia where the native Manchurian ash (Fraxinus mandshurica) and Chinese ash (Fraxinus chinensis) are less seriously affected by it, the fungus which causes the disease is known as Hymenoscyphus fraxineus, and it kills off the tree by blocking its vascular (water transport) systems.

Already present in most parts of Britain, ash dieback is dispersed by spores that blow on the wind, and which can travel for many miles.

Ash dieback has an effect on trees of every age group and has symptoms such as:

  • Leaves that wilt, turn black and fall early.
  • Dying leaves and shoots are visible in summer.
  • New growth appearing from previously dormant buds (epicormic growth).
  • Leaves that develop dark patches during mid to late summer.
  • The formation of lesions where branches meet the trunk.

Stronger ash can fight the disease to a certain extent, but ultimately succumb to continual attacks, year-after-year. There is not yet any cure for chalara ash dieback, and since it's an airborne disease, no clear way of stopping it spreading.

Whilst cases of ash dieback can be reported to the Forestry Commission's "Tree Alert Service", it's now so commonplace all over Great Britain that they're really only interested to know about cases that are found in locations not previously affected. If you believe that you have a tree infected with ash dieback on your property in Wing, you must get in touch with a local tree surgeon, who'll offer guidance and advice on how best to proceed - ultimately the tree will need to be chopped down and removed.

Protecting Trees & Shrubs in Winter

Protecting your shrubs and trees in winter is maybe a measure that you've not thought too much about, maybe assuming that the winter weather conditions in the UK aren't usually severe enough to justify this. Even the plants, shrubs and trees that we normally consider to be hardy, can find winter hard to get through, especially during the colder months, and they will always benefit from some TLC and extra protection.

Of course where trees are involved it's high winds that can cause the biggest issues and despite the fact that the majority of trees will already have shed their leaves, they could still suffer damage in windy weather. If you are worried about the condition of a tree, or it seems like it could fall to the ground, you should call in a local tree surgeon to examine it and carry out a risk assessment. You can also have problems with trees due to heavy snowfall, so when weather such as this is expected, keep your eyes open for potential damage. In the depths of winter, your trees and shrubs might need some protection from frost and ice. Laying a thick covering of mulch round the bases of the stems will allow them to continue absorbing moisture and prevent the soil around the roots from freezing.

Firewood/Logs Wing

Firewood Logs Wing

Of course, you may need a tree surgeon for a completely different reason, since they are often a great source for logs or firewood in Wing. Since tree surgeons spend a good deal or their time cutting down branches and trees, I suppose this is not at all surprising.

Some tree surgeons in and around Wing may be willing to give you branches and logs free of charge, as they've always got plenty of them to get rid of, while others will require paying for seasoned and chopped logs which have been dried out and are ready for burning.

Chucking "wet" logs on your wood burner or open fire is not a great idea, and will generate lots of smoke and block up your flue. You should only use logs that have been left to dry for a minimum of a year and have a moisture content of 20 percent or less. The advantage of getting logs from tree surgeons, is that these are likely to be mostly hardwood logs, which will throw out heat for three or four hours, giving a sustained burn. If you can also get a few softwood logs, these are fantastic for getting a fire going, and upon which you can bung your seasoned hardwood logs once your fire is roaring.

Tree Stump Removal Wing

If you are in a predicament where you have to have a large tree felled and removed from your garden in Wing, you are probably going to be stuck with a tree stump, which will also have to be dealt with. Now, in some cases you may be happy enough to leave the tree stump in position and allow it to decay and rot away naturally. However, stumps left in your garden can send out suckers in an attempt to regrow, and sizeable stumps can take several years to rot down, during which time they can be an eyesore, a dangerous trip hazard and the ideal hiding place for unwanted fungi, pests and bacteria.

There are various ways by which a large tree stump can be removed, if you decide that this is the best plan of action, but the 2 key choices are stump grinding and stump removal. Below we'll be focusing on the removal option.

There are 3 main approaches that can be used to remove a tree stump - you can dig it out by hand, you can use a chemical treatment or you can burn it. You could make use of any of these solutions if you intend to remove the tree stump on your own. If you are hiring a tree surgeon in Wing, they'll generally recommend the aforementioned stump grinding option.

Stump Digging: Digging by hand is rather self-explanatory and involves digging down, sawing through all the roots, and freeing up the stump. A cable ratchet winch may be needed to complete this procedure. This kind of work isn't suited to the faint-hearted or unfit, as it's laborious and tiring.

Burning a Tree Stump: Burning is not really a recommended course of action, and could conflict with legislation in your area, so take great care if choosing this technique. A number of one inch holes will need to be drilled in the tree stump, and for several days kept topped up with vegetable oil. You should then pile up charcoal around the tree stump and set light to it. This should not then be left unattended, but be continually monitored. When the fire has finally ceased burning, you need to make sure that it's extinguished and cool, after which you can manually dig out the charred stump remains and roots.

Other techniques include digging out and clearing all the soil away from underneath the tree stump, and lighting a fire in the excavated cavity that has been established. None of these stump burning solutions should ever be used if the tree stump is near to fences, other trees or a building.

Chemical Stump Killers: A strong chemical solution like Resolva Xtra Tough Tree Stump Killer, Vitax SBK Stump Killer or Roundup Tree Stump Remover, will be required if you decide to proceed down the chemical treatment route. Always read and closely follow the instructions for timings, rates and applications for these chemical solutions, and be mindful of the fact that they are toxic and sometimes flammable. This is not a short term solution, and it can take a few weeks for the stump to rot entirely, after which an axe and a spade can be used to chop it up and remove it.

Pollarding Wing

Tree Pollarding Wing Buckinghamshire

When a tree has appreciably got too large for its current surroundings, it must be greatly reduced in size by the use of a procedure labeled as pollarding. This tactic is also sometimes employed for aesthetic reasons to change a tree into a particularly desirable shape or form. Trees which grow beside streets in Wing are commonly pollarded, as are those that are used for boundaries and in managed hedgerows. For people who love trees it is not a very popular practice, seeing as the outcome tends to be somewhat bare and harsh, with the overall appearance of being virtually dead. However, despite the somewhat unsightly appearance of recently pollarded trees such as beeches, horse chestnuts, sycamores, limes, planes, oaks and maples, there's a positive feature to this process, in that such trees can be preserved when they would otherwise have to be removed.

Preventing Storm Damage

While we're all conscious of the power of Mother Nature, big trees seem strong, sturdy and capable of withstanding pretty much any eventuality. The lifespan of most trees far exceeds that of animals or humans, and in fact some species like sweet chestnuts, oaks and yews can survive for hundreds (even thousands) of years.

Nevertheless, when faced with certain conditions they can be extremely susceptible to the elements, and it's not only falling limbs or branches that can be the result, but the entire tree can fall down in extreme circumstances. Trees have one major weather related enemy, and that is wind. As violent storms and extreme weather events become more commonplace with climate change, this type of damage will occur much more frequently in Wing in the future. Saturated soil during extended periods of rain or floods can be another problem, as can heavy snowfall in winter.

It is recommended that you get a local Wing tree surgeon to examine your trees to reduce the chance of problems with your trees in times of severe weather, they'll prune and remove any dead or overhanging branches that could be a problem.

Copper conductors, lightning rods, or other lightning protection systems are also recommended for larger trees, to lessen the chances of them being struck by lightning and to safeguard nearby property and buildings which could be vulnerable to side-flashes ("arcs") that can cause more damage, in addition to harm done to the tree itself. A tree can be killed or seriously weakened when it is struck by lightning, and even where the effect is not immediately conspicuous, the tree will likely be more susceptible to attack by pests and diseases. Lightning is more common than you might imagine, and there are about 300 thousand strikes every year in the UK.

To safeguard your trees from being damaged by storms and lower the chances of drastic consequences should an unsound tree fall down as a result of extreme weather conditions, ask your local Wing tree care specialist what can be done.

Save The Earth By Planting Trees

If we look at annual figures, roughly three and six billion trees are being cut down across the globe. The fact is that the goods that are created from trees are necessary for our everyday living. Writing paper and household tissue papers are an example of this, as well as the lumber used to make houses. It is possible to act to save our forests although we must accept that most of the products made from trees are essential.

Trees are celebrated on Arbor Day and the aim of the celebration is that we have to plant trees at that time but this is not actually dealing with the issue. This is because virtually all individuals don't go out and plant a tree. If they did, we would be all set.

Would you believe that there are approximately 7 billion people right now? That is only an estimation since you can't keep an exact count. The number of trees around the world would be restored if every individual went out and planted a tree on Arbor Day. The probability of this happening is small.

Plant a Tree

If you would like to save our planet, planting trees is a positive step that you can take. I am not restricting this to planting trees on simply one day out of the year. How about planting trees weekly or at least monthly? We have to try to make up for people who refuse to plant trees even though they keep on using the earth's valuable resources.

Would you believe that on Arbor Day, only approximately 8 and 15 million trees are planted? Based on those estimates, we nonetheless need to take that number up by a further 5 billion. This situation keeps on getting worse.

I actually have a solution to the problem entirely although folks should still keep on planting trees whenever they can. What could actually solve this problem is if every log company or tree farmer, by law, had to plant two saplings for each tree they take, so our tree issue wouldn't be an issue for long.

However, until someone has the presence of mind to make this a reality, we are left to take care of planting the trees ourselves. To keep those tree numbers up isn't going to really take a lot of effort. For instance, if merely 10% of the people in the world planted a tree each month, it would cover the amount of trees that are chopped down each year. In the region of 7 billion new trees would be planted by doing this. And that 1 billion excess trees are exactly what we need in order to get our tree population back to where it should be.

Every person concerned about the health of our ecosystems can help by planting trees. Once again, it only takes 10% of the world population to start making a difference. Only you can decide if you want to step up and help.
