Trees and shrubs are living, growing organisms, and it is this sense of life and vitality that is welcome in commercial areas, retail parks and industrial estates.
But their ever-changing size and shape can lead to challenges too, especially if a low limb starts to encroach over the pavement or road, or if storm damage leads to a higher limb hanging lower.
Tree surgeons are your allies when this is the case – able to come and trim back the offending limb, or remove it completely without damaging the trunk of the tree.
Good tree surgery brings together several different considerations:
- Safety – First and foremost, especially where employees, customers or members of the public pass by, you need to make sure low branches can’t collide with people or traffic.
- Health – The health of the tree or shrub matters too, and good tree surgeons will cut it back without leaving it exposed to infection or rot.
- Aesthetics – Sensitive tree surgery cuts the branch back in a way that minimises the visual impact, leaving a natural appearance.
If low-hanging limbs are causing a concern, or a threat to pedestrians, delivery vehicles and general traffic, hire a tree surgeon to take care of them today.
