Expert Tips

Don’t damage your trees
Each cut you make on a tree can affect its growth and long-term health. If you don’t know what you’re doing it can be extremely damaging and can result in major decay in parts of the wood. Always get advice from your local tree expert. They will inspect your trees and suggest the best course of action.

Perilous powerlines
Trimming trees around powerlines is dangerous. Your local council makes sure that any verge trees stay clear of powerlines, but trees within a property’s boundary are the responsibility of the owner or occupier. This is one job you must never attempt yourself and always leave to the professionals.

Keep an eye on your trees
A regular, professional inspection of mature trees on your property means that any problems will be spotted before they become dangerous. Noticeable defects such as fungi, cracks, bulges or hollows in the trunk, can be a sign that the tree has been weakened, and could be brought down in a storm.
