Take a Bough's expert tree surgeons cover the Clapham area
Our London based tree surgeons frequently work in Clapham and our teams are required to be undertake all aspects of the tree surgery process, from large tree removals to precise tree pruning in the sometimes small Clapham gardens. Our tree surgeons are also required to manage limited accesses to remove the resulting debris from our sites, as many of Clapham’s houses are terraced. We take utmost care when carrying tools and debris through our client’s houses and are very conscious of security and minimizing the potential disruption and inconvenience. We aim to leave no trace of our presence except the beautiful and precise tree work that is the benchmark of our company.
Our professionally trained and insured tree surgeons deal with a wide variety of tree species. London has a far more diverse tree stock than rural areas because of the high level of design. We are required to have an extensive level of plant identification, pruning appropriate requirements for our customer’s trees and the pests and diseases that might affect them. Our tree surgeons are proud of the advice that we are able to give our customers, as we are often able to offer solutions to remove the issues that their trees might create, without the need to remove the tree entirely. Trees can often cause a loss of light to a garden or a property and may also be responsible for creating a lot of debris but with proper pruning and management usually these problems can be limited if not removed. If you have any queries regarding your trees in the Clapham area please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Working as a tree surgeon in Clapham
Clapham is a largely residential area with five main districts, Abbeville, Clapham Common, Clapham South, Clapham North and the historic Clapham Old Town and comes under the London Boroughs of Wandsworth and Lambeth. It boasts a wide variety of housing stock.
After the coming of the railways, Clapham developed as a suburb for commuters travelling into central London to work. By 1900 the area had fallen from favour with the upper classes. Many of their grand houses had been demolished by the middle of the 20th century, though a number remain around the Common and in the Old Town, as do a substantial number of fine late 18th- and early 19th-century houses. Today’s Clapham is an area of varied housing from the large Queen Anne, Regency and Georgian era homes of the Old Town and Clapham Common to the grids of Victorian housing in the Abbeville area; and, as in much of London, the area also has its fair share of council-owned social housing on estates dating from the 1930s and 1960s.
From the early 20th century, Clapham came to be seen as an ordinary commuter suburb, often cited as representing ordinary people: hence the so-called “Man on the Clapham omnibus”. But by the 1980s the area had undergone a further transformation, becoming the centre for the gentrification of most of the surrounding area. Clapham’s relative proximity to traditionally expensive areas of central London, which had become increasingly unaffordable to all but the most wealthy during the course of the 1980s and 1990s, led to an increase in the number of middle-class people living in Clapham. Today the area is generally an affluent place, although its professional residents often live relatively close to significant pockets of social housing.
