A reputable tree surgeon is an incredible asset. There are many elements of the work that can go wrong and the results can offer terrible consequences. We were asked to fell this Sycamore tree in Stockport. From the first image you can see how large the tree was beside the house.

Overgrown trees are knowingly problematic. The trees can restrict the light and the roots can cause problems for paving and buildings alike. Our client wanted the tree to be felled and wanted to find out more about their options.

What to do with Problem Trees and Hedges

It’s that time of year where many of our clients are ensuring that all work for their garden is planned for. Much of your garden work will be possible for you to complete. This is not always the case for problem trees and problem hedges. It may be that they are too tall for you to reach safely. Or it may be that they have overgrown to a point that is a challenge for you to manage.

A lot of our clients comment on the fact that they have not considered the waste created from such garden work. Once you start to prune trees and hedges, it soon becomes evident the sheer amount of green waste that is created. There is no way that your twice-monthly green bin collection can keep up with these requirements.

Therefore, a problem in itself can be created. Total Tree Services are happy to help with all your problem trees and hedges. We offer free estimates and good advice. We are fully insured, and our staff are fully trained.

Tips for Dealing with Overgrown Trees

As time-served tree surgeons for Stockport, Manchester and Cheshire we are well-versed in what to do with overgrown trees. The important thing is to ensure that we offer valuable tips and advice on what you should do when faced with an overgrown tree.

Overgrown trees StockportThis may have been a property that you have just moved into or may be a tree that has been in your possession for many years. Either way, they aren’t always problematic. You may just want to ensure that you are in a position to appropriately care for your tree, rather than remove it.

Are the tree branches blocking light? Maybe the branches are blocking the view to your home? It may even be the case that your tree is overhanging a boundary into a neighbours garden.

We have put together these helpful tips on how to deal with overgrown trees;

Know your rights: any land owner is responsible for vegetation grown on their land and can be held accountable for that growing onto roadsides. If this growth goes onto public land, you may receive requests from your local council to deal with the problem.

You are also within your right to cut back any material that grows over onto your property boundary. By common law you must offer to return the cut material. However, if  there is any ongoing damage to the tree or hedge, you can in some cases be responsible.

Top tip: always check whether the tree that you are trimming is not under a tree preservation order. If it is, you will need consent from your local council to begin any work.

Undertake regular work: it is far easier to keep on top of large trees. This is possible in most cases, but exceptionally large trees may require the assistance of professional tree surgeons. In the cases where you are able to maintain the tree, ensure to trim branches regularly. Use machinery safely and always take your time. Disposal of the cut material needs to be done in the appropriate manner.

If you require the help of a time-served professional, we invite you to call Bostock Total Tree Services on 07855 859983.

Tree Reshaping and Pruning Tips

It is not always necessary to completely remove a tree. It may be the case that once it has been successfully pruned and re-shaped that it will be much more appropriately sized. Not every over-grown tree needs to be taken down, so reshaping and pruning is a cost-effective and viable option for many problematic trees.

Tree reshaping Stockport

Please note; if trees are suffering from disease or, are in fact dying, that pruning and re-shaping is not advised. We are happy to discuss all elements of the job with you prior to work commencing. It may be that we have some valuable advice for you that could save or elongate the lifespan of your beautiful trees. Feel free to ask us as many questions as you like; we are passionate about looking after trees and helping our clients to get the most from them.

It is a true fact that pruning, and reshaping is often overlooked. Maintenance of trees while they grow can be really beneficial to their overall growth. Did you know that it can even reduce the need for large-scale pruning in the future?

Tree Reshaping Tips:

Here’s a few tips that you may find useful:

  • Did you know that the frequency and extent of pruning required can be dictated by location?
  • Consider the following re-shaping services; crown reduction, crown thinning and crown lifting.
  • Don’t try to take on huge projects on your own; reshaping large trees can be hazardous and safety should always be put first.
  • Consider a longer-term solution. This is really important when planning ahead as a solution that may best suit right now, may not be the best long-term solution.
  • It is sometimes wise to consider if you have more than one problematic tree. A project that deals with a number of problematic trees or shrubs may work out to be cost-effective for you.

If you would like to arrange a quote or have questions about tree re-shaping please call today on 07855 859983.

There may be a few different reasons as to why a tree may need felling; these may include the fact that it has died, is dying or has become dangerous. In any of these circumstances, it is pivotal that caution is used when tree felling.

Tree Felling Stockport Tree surgeons Stockport

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have formulated the following four-step guide for felling a tree, however, our best advice is to be careful and never push the boundaries of safety.

Here’s our 4-step Guide to Tree Felling:

  1. The first cut is a horizontal cut, this should be a third the width of the tree.
  2. The second cut is a wedge cut, which should meet the horizontal cut. From this, a piece of wood should drop out which resembles a segment of orange. This will determine the direction the tree will fall in.
  3. The third cut is to the back of the ‘V’ of the wedge cut. Make sure you leave a substantial piece of holding wood (the hinge) of which the tree will pivot and fall. Important: this is determined by the size of tree you are felling.
  4. When the tree starts to fall use your escape route to the safe area. This should be pre-planned and discussed in detail with any other individuals helping to complete the task.

It is highly likely that after reading the above information that you may be feeling overwhelmed. This does depend on the size of the tree, but if you are looking for further advice please call today on 07855 859983.

Tree Stump Removal Stockport

Part of offering the best-available services for tree surgery is having the knowledge of what machinery is most appropriate for different jobs. The other part is having access to these machines as and when they are needed.

That is why Total Tree Services own all of our own equipment. This, combined with a huge range of experience and knowledge about arboriculture means that we complete our work efficiently and safely.

Stump removal StockportWe recently took delivery of our new Bandit stump grinder. These high-powered machines boast a great reputation for delivering exceptional service and results. It is a compact machine which allows use in many settings. Tree stumps aren’t always located in the easiest positions! It also means we are able to get it through side gates comfortably.

Why is stump removal important?

They are unsightly and can be hazardous. Tree stumps generally aren’t attractive; unless they are going to be turned into a feature they can end up becoming a tripping hazard. They can also become a challenge when mowing your lawn.

Stump grinding StockportStumps that are left can decay and attract unwanted insects; after many years insects can take residence in the stump. These may include ants, beetles and termites. In some cases, it has also been known that stumps can harbour disease or fungus. These can sometimes spread to neighbouring plants and kill or damage them.

Some stumps can produce re-growth; some trees that have been cut down can continue to generate sucker growth. This can become a chore to keep on top of both in cost and time. These suckers also absorb nutrients from surrounding plants so, if left to grow, can cause problems for your existing plants.

The beech trees were successfully removed, and our clients were exceptionally pleased with the results and service they received. Their garden was left full of light.

Many of our clients have questions about overhanging trees. Did you know that you are entitled to cut branches that overhang onto your property? The law states that you must offer to return the cut material to the owner. It is also important to realise that if you cause damage or harm to the tree that you can be held responsible by the owner.
