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.

This project we completed in Heaton Moor was a perfect example of this. We completed a Sycamore Section Fell. The Sycamore tree has become very large and problematic.

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.
