Tree Surgery a quick guide

1) First of all, you need to inquire as to whether the trees are subject to a tree preservation order. If you destroy or carry out work on trees subject to such an order, you could face prosecution from your local council. So it is vital that you make sure you request permission to work on the specific tree. You also need to research if tree is inside of a Conservation Area and what paperwork you will need to go through to carry out the necessary work.2) Remember that tree surgery isn't all about cutting and chopping. Tree surgery also involves essential maintenance work such as pollarding, canopy lifting, crown reductions, pruning and felling of ash, oak, horse chestnut trees, any species of domestic trees, shrubs and hedges, as well as cherry trees and apple trees. So before you decide to start chopping at branches make sure that the work you are about to carry out is best for the tree.3) While it is possible you may have to uproot the tree, you have to think about how its uprooting can leave massive consequences for the wildlife nearby. You may take pleasure from seeing birds and other animals in your back garden without realising that those very same animals depend on your tree for their continued survival. Who would have thought that tree surgery could be so complicated?4) Removing tree stumps is one of the hardest things to do when you cut some trees, so take your time. If you do decide against removing stumps then there is the immediate danger of dangerous elements growing on them. So it is important that you fully burn the stump. Burning a stump will save you time and effort instead of having to waste more time when removing it yourself with your gardening tools.5) Obviously once it has been disposed of, there is the extra effort of needing to fill in the gaping holes by using stump-killing commodities. You also need to put hot water in the holes and then once you notice that the water dissipates, keep adding more water to the area until the stump killer is absolutely dispersed. These techniques will efficiently remove stumps permanently.6) In the main, people err when they attempt to uproot the stump. While this has success with bushes, with massive stumps you can find yourself struggling and causing yourself serious injury. This is because of their weight, size and root spread. Consequently, you may have to request the rental of a tree grinder to completely remove it.By heeding the instructions given here, the tree surgery will be that little bit easier and you will become a better and more experienced tree contractor. Besides this, it could be that you are totally in love with your job and consider it as a serious profession to move into.Tree felling/tree surgery are skilled operations which require high levels of technical knowledge, training and experience. While tree contractors are easy to find in most areas, choosing a reliable tree surgeon is very important - contact Talon Forestry on 07821 489417

Do not let this happen to you!

ANGRY residents watched helplessly as a careless tree surgeon chopped down trees, dropping logs, leaves and branches on to cars parked in a busy street beneath. A woman whose car was being dented by the debris pleaded with him to stop. But he ignored her request to stop and carried on regardless. She had arrived home from work the previous day to find her Rover 25 blocked in by fences and logs. A nearby Toyota Rav4 SUV fared even worse - a log plunged through its sun roof as it was almost buried. A cordon around the work area ensured pedestrians were not hurt but nothing was done to protect the cars from the falling branches. Residents and onlookers were outraged. One, 80-year-old Dennis Moon, said: "It's all wrong." Scaffolder Chris Pickup, 19, said: "It's a joke. If that were my car I'd be climbing the tree to stop it." Police have arrested a man of 42 on suspicion of criminal damage. The council said the job was private and did not need their permission. Rob Forrester, whose cherry-picker was hired for the job, said: "I'm horrified. As a tree surgeon for 12 years I've seen a lot of things but never anything like this."not worth the risk - for safe tree surgery contact Talon Forestry on 07821 489417
