Gales and storms are a normal part of weather patterns in the UK and often have a severe impact on the trees, with fallen branches or whole trees being uprooted which can fall into roads, blocking them for hours, or onto houses and cars. The financial impact of this damage to the owner of the trees can be as devastating as the physical damage. Our London tree surgeons can provide peace of mind by the skilled maintenance and reduction techniques. By thinning the crowns of large or dense trees they can reduce the ‘sail’ area allowing the wind to pass harmlessly through the branches rather than offering resistance which will result in damage. Weak and diseased branches can be removed; overgrown trees can be pollarded or reduced leaving the tree to flourish in future seasons.

In urban areas such as Wandsworth and Wimbledon such maintenance is especially important and our skilled tree surgeons will be happy to offer free advice and quotations for any necessary work to your trees. Rather than waiting until problems become apparent it is very worthwhile to book an appointment with one of our friendly, knowledgeable tree surgeons to have your trees assessed for potential problems which can then be dealt with in a stress free manner.
