Tree Stump Removal Advice

Tree stump removal can be confusing. There is a host of information available on the Internet if you search how to remove tree stumps. It is flooded with advice on different methods to remove tree stumps. However, there does (and many would agree) come a time where the stump is just too large to tackle on your own. Why may you ask for help? Again, if the stump is too large it would be unreasonable to tackle the job on your own. Other reasons may include people’s limitation of time or their inclination.

However, if you are looking for advice on stump removal, the following information should help.

The fastest way of removing stumps is to:

  • Expose the roots; use a shovel to dig next to the stump.
  • Cut the roots; this can be done using loppers or a root saw if necessary
  • Remove the roots, exposing all of the stump
  • The stump can then be dug up and removed
  • The hole or gap left will need to be filled
Stump removal Stockport

Now obviously this is advice for a small tree. If the tree you have cut down is of any size this process will not work. Some other methods include drilling holes into the stump then scooping substances into each hole with boiling water in order to burn the stump material. Substances include bleach, herbicides, stump killer products and more.

It is really important that if you select one of these methods that you invest time reading instructions. It is also important to ensure that you complete the project safely. Some products are dangerous and corrosive and should not be used with pets or children around.

Another method is stump grinding. We are able to help quickly and efficiently remove stumps with our state-of-the-art stump grinder. We have all of our own machinery to ensure we are using the best available. It is also important as we care for and look after the machinery.

How To Deal with Overgrown Trees

Overgrown trees can cause homeowners some real problems. Local tree surgeons can help! Overgrown trees can block out light, overhang other people’s boundaries or pavements. As the owner of the land, you are responsible for all vegetation growing on that land. If vegetation (i.e. trees or hedges) start to grow over boundary lines, you can be reported. This process is in place so that if trees or shrubs are causing an obstruction, they can be dealt with. It needs to be enforceable if over a public highway.

What happens if trees are overhanging your garden?

local tree surgeons

There are different elements of the law that you need to be aware of. Much of these may seem strange. However, you do not want to put yourself in a position where a neighbour dispute gets ugly. If you have a question you can always call your local council or see if your chosen tree surgeon has advice.

If a tree or hedge is growing over your boundary, by law you are able to cut them back. Here is the bit that some people find hard to believe. You must, under law, offer to return the cut material to the landowner. Another thing that you should be aware of is that if any work you do to trim the tree or shrub causes it to die that you may be held responsible. In a worst-case scenario you may then find legal proceedings against you, should your neighbour so wish to.

Please always ensure to check if you live in a conservation area or whether the tree is protected by a Tree Preservation Order. If this is the case, you will require additional consent prior to any works being carried out.

It is always worth investing a little time into gathering information. Don’t rush into cutting down trees and always ask for information advice from local tree surgeons. We are local and professional tree surgeons serving Cheshire. Call 07855 859 983 for more information about overgrown trees.

Tree Removal Bramhall

Tree removal and stump grinding can be a complicated process. Over time trees can grow to create natural boundaries between properties or sections of land. These work really well until the time that they become to large. When we plant trees , we rarely take into account as to how tall they will grow. Or that room that the individual trees would need. Therefore, as they grow, they can become problematic.

Other issues can be attributed to light restriction that can be created by growing trees. This was certainly the case with this project. Once the branches started to be taken down, the light started pouring into the once darkened space.

Stump Grinding Bramhall

All trees were cut down systematically, leaving the large tree stumps. A stump grinder is then used to remove these from the ground.

Here are some frequently asked questions we often receive about stump grinding.

How do stump grinders work?

A stump grinder is high-powered equipment that removes tree stumps. This is done by a rotating cutting disc that grinds away the tree stump. The machinery is controlled by hydraulic cylinders that push the cutter head laterally through the stump.

Is it better to grind a stump or remove it?

Grinding stumps is much more efficient than stump removal. One thing you should consider is that it will, however, leave the tree’s roots behind. If the stump is large, the chip pile produced can also be large. These chips can form mulch or you can ask your chosen tree surgeon to remove the chips for an agreed price.

How long does it take for a tree stump to rot?

The rate at which tree stumps rot or deteriorate does depend on so many factors. The process can take between 3 to 10 years. Some factors that make this range change are the type of tree or the location of the stump. Softer woods decompose quicker than harder wood.

Tree Pruning Stockport

When trees outgrow their spaces, tree reduction may be the best idea. The best advice available is to tackle this issue sooner rather than later. The longer you leave it, the harder the job will be. You have to consider recovery for the tree so it is important that you don’t do something that will harm the tree.

Overgrown Trees Davenport Park

Why might tree pruning be needed?

There are a range of reasons why a tree may need pruning. It does not just need to be because the tree is oversized. It may be because the tree has dead or diseased branches. So many clients are unaware of the way in which trees can be affected and how they should be cared for.

It is usually best to try and keep tree growth under control with regular pruning. We realise that this may not always be practical. It may be that you move into a property with overgrown trees in the garden. This may mean that you need to be proactive in how best to get the trees cared for.

Local tree surgeons Davenport Park

When should you reduce trees?

You will usually find that tree surgeons advise the best time to prune a tree is in late summer. This is when tree healing is most rapid. There can be complications if you prune a tree at the incorrect time. Getting advice from a time-served professional is by far the best idea.

How to reduce tree size

Depending on the tree involved and the intended effect there are several tree pruning strategies. These may include:

  • An overall trim
  • Pruning when the tree is dormant
  • Pollarding
  • Crown lifting
  • Crown thinning

It is important that you are aware of any preservation orders on any particular tree. It is our job to care about your tree care and how best to approach tree reduction. If you would like to request a quotation, please call us today on 07855859983.

Did you know?

Tree Surgeons Davenport Park

The park was developed over forty years from the 1890s to the second world war. This meant that the houses were reflected the styles of the Victorian and Edwardian designs. It is an area of great beauty. Alongside this are the mature gardens of these beautiful homes.

We were recently asked to help this client with a few problem trees. As the homes in Davenport Park are steeped with history; so are the trees. There are many, many mature trees throughout the area. This means that assistance is often needed in order to prune trees, reduce trees and other tree work.

Problem Trees Davenport Park

Some large trees block out light. This is not an ideal solution for anyone, and larger trees can become problematic, if left. All elements of the job were discussed prior to us starting. We reduced the tree so that it was a more acceptable size and did not limit the light as much to the surrounding houses. If you are out in the garden and need more sunshine, we could reduce or crown thin your trees for more natural light penetration with no removal needed.

As professional tree surgeons, we offer competitive pricing for our tree work. Please get in touch today to request a quote. We have vast experience in both domestic and commercial tree removal services. If you have questions or would like a no obligation tree surgery quote, please get in contact on 07855859983.

Caring For Mature Trees

We are well into the season where our clients are trying to maintain and keep on top of their gardens. So many of our clients find gardening therapeutic. However, find that their larger mature trees and bushes are difficult to maintain once a certain size. Mature tree care is really quite important.

Think of tree care as an investment. Having a healthy mature tree increases in value throughout its lifetime. How so?

  • It can increase property values
  • It beautifies your homes surroundings
  • Purifies the air
  • And offers energy saving solutions (such as cool from the summer’s sun and protection from a cold winter breeze).

It is important to complete a yearly inspection of your more mature trees.This assesses four elements of tree vitality: new leaf formation, leaf size, twig growth, and absence of crown dieback. This is the gradual death of the upper part of the tree.

As experienced arborists we are able to offer in depth assessments of tree health. Abnormalities found in this process may include:

  • Insect activity
  • Deformed, discoloured, or dead leaves and twigs
  • Disease

At this point we are able to offer information and advice on treatment options. These may include mulching, soil treatment or may, in some cases, require full removal. Although tree removal is a last resort, there are circumstances when it is necessary.

Tree Removal Prestbury

We are able to help decipher whether or not a tree should be removed. Our skillset and equipment allow us to safely and efficiently remove trees.

When may a tree removal be recommended?

  • If a tree is dead or dying
  • If it is considered to be hazardous to its surroundings
  • The tree may be causing an obstruction
  • The tree may be crowding other trees (where pruning may not be sufficient)

Either way we will offer you comprehensive advice and support to ensure the best solution for you. With the correct maintenance and care trees can add aesthetic and economic value to your property. On the other hand, it is important to realise that poorly maintained trees can offer a significant liability. Please contact us for more information about tree care on 07855 859983.
