Currently across Kent and the South-East Ash Dieback is widely affecting trees. The mortality rate is expected to be in the region of 95%.
We are helping customers to identify and manage if their Ash trees have been affected by this disease by providing three simple stages, initial, advanced or terminal. Ash Dieback at the advanced and terminal stage becomes unsafe to climb with ropes in the conventional way. This only leaves the option to fell the entire tree from the ground or if not practical a MEWP (Cherry Picker) would be necessary to safely dismantle the tree.
Mechanical Tree Removal
We use a range of specialised mechanical equipment to safely remove your tree:
• Merlo Rotating Telehandler (ROTO 50.30 S-PLUS)
• WesttechCS750 Woodcracker & Grapple Saw
• Mobile Elevating Working Platform (MEWP)
• Crane Head
Tree pruning is the removal or reduction of parts of the tree whether they be diseased, dying, potentially dangerous, or simply healthy branches that are removed for cosmetic reasons.
Occasionally, it is necessary to completely remove a tree or section, usually referred to as ‘felling’.
A stump is often left sticking above ground level when a tree is removed.
Dead Wood Removal
Dead branches on a tree can indicate disease, damage or old age, and may attract insects or decay organisms. The removal of dead branches, known as dead wooding, tidies the appearance of a tree, and prevents those branches from unexpectedly falling on a house or a person.
Hedge Trimming / Cutting
A hedge is created by growing a series of plants closely together and trimming them regularly to stimulate growth and maintain a particular shape, and is often used as a living fence or boundary.
We can help tidy and maintain your existing hedge or provide advice about how to establish a new one.
Replacing a tree is often a condition of consent when a tree is removed that was subject to a tree preservation order (TPO) or was within a conservation area (CA).
Our professional arborists are trained in planting various size trees from whips for hedging to individual heavy standard trees.
