Leighton Buzzard tree surgeons
Our Bedfordshire surgery service is available to provide you with a written quotation for whatever service you need, and will always provide professional advice on the most appropriate course of action based on the species of your tree, its size, age, location and condition. All quotations are provided without obligation.
Different trees and different circumstances call for different types of tree work. If you are unsure as to the service you need, you can leave it to us to provide expert guidance.
Some trees for example have naturally thick, dense canopies and it can be a great help to the tree to have its crown thinned so as to allow more light and air to penetrate. This boosts the tree’s health and overall appearance, not to mention can be beneficial to the surroundings.
Other trees grow naturally tall, some to several hundred metres, and can benefit from regular crown lifting or pollarding so that they don’t pose a hazard to their surroundings. This type of pruning is particularly useful for trees situated on roadsides and close to overhead cables.
Trees such as fruit bearing trees like the apple, plum or pear tree, need to be pruned in such a way that they develop a very strong branch system to support the heavy fruit.
Sometimes you may want your tree to be maintained at a certain height or spread so that it continues to fit its space perfectly.
Whatever tree pruning service you need from our tree surgery experts, you can rely on it being undertaken in the most professional way possible.
Our tree care services include dead wood removal which is vital to ensure the health and safety of your tree. Dead wood forms as a natural part of the tree’s growth cycle, but it can also be a sign of disease or decay. If you ask us to attend to remove dead wood from your tree then we will also inspect the tree to ensure there are no symptoms of disease or pest infestation that need to be dealt with. If there are, then we will advise you accordingly
Tree Surgery and Tree Preservation Orders
It is important to be aware that trees of notable interest are likely to be protected by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO). This means that the level of pruning allowed will be restricted and you will need to obtain permission to undertake works. The arboriculture department of your local authority will be able to help you check the TPO register so that you are in possession of the facts before you go ahead with any work. If you do need permission then your application may take up to six weeks to be approved.
If your tree is situated in a conservation area then we will also have to applyto the council before work can commence.
