What does Spring mean for our Gardens?

Spring tends to be that time where we plan ahead for the times when we get to enjoy our gardens. Through Spring and Summer we all tend to spend as much time in our gardens as possible. This does come with some work to prepare the space so that it is enjoyable and manageable. Tree care is a large part of this. Trees that have become overgrown can become problematic. Therefore, it is important that your trees are regularly trimmed in order to maintain them.

“I am a local gardener and have sub contracted Total Tree Services a number of times, and have absolutely no hesitation passing their number onto my customers. Ben’s work is thorough, safely carried out and second to none. He is hands down the most reliable Arborist in the area and I look forward to working with him again.” – Luke Burras

Damage From Overgrown Trees

Damage from overgrown trees can offer a real challenge for a homeowner. When we discuss damage, it is an obvious fact that there is a completely sliding scale. Damage may only mean issues with your guttering due to falling leaves, twigs or branches. However, damage can also mean that a tree is growing too close to your home.

What Can Damage from Overgrown Trees be?

Damage From Overgrown Trees Macclesfield

If a tree is growing too close to your home or an outbuilding, it can cause a number of issues. If planted entirely too close then the tree could damage brickwork, guttering and even roof tiles. While  a tree may be slow growing, it is important not to underestimate the power of its growth. Major structural damage can be caused, offering great stress and pressure to those having to sort it.

Another element to consider is the possible issues caused by the tree roots. If a tree is planted too close to a building, then the large roots can cause problems with lifting pathways, blocked drains and free-standing walls.

Most trees growing near buildings or other structures cause no damage. However, there are cases where structural or subsidence damage can be linked with tree roots. Why is this? As trees grow, their root systems expand. As they grown they need more moisture from the areas they cover. This takes moisture from the surrounding soil which makes it shrink further. This can cause movement within the ground and can eventually lead to subsidence or damage to building foundations.

It is important to remember that this is in extreme cases. However, it is always a good idea to request the support and thoughts of a professional. We will be able to help and guide you to find the best option for the trees on your land. There are many options available, and this does not always result in the complete removal of a tree.
