Why or When is Tree Surgery Required?
If trees are left alone their health can suffer through storm damage or disease. When trees are allowed to grow uncontrolled they can very quickly become dangerous trees. By law, they are not allowed to get within 2 meters of a building.
Also, tree roots can cause subsidence. Listed above are some very good reasons why tree surgery is required as part of your garden maintenance.
Reading a homeowner review or several will give you a good understanding if a tree surgery business will provide a reliable service, so please do your research.
Pruning Trees- When Should You Do It?
You need to be careful when you decide to prune your trees as part of your garden maintenance plan. There are a number of laws within the UK that protect them and their residents. We highly recommend you familiarise yourself with the following laws, to protect yourself from prosecution from the Local Authority.
Tree Preservation Order (TPO)
The purpose of the TPO is to protect trees that have significant value within their area. A TPO is administered by your local authority and you require written permission from them before you start work on your trees. The liaising with local authorities is a process all professional tree surgeons are used to.
Do you live in a Conservation Area? If you do then this law will apply to you and will be a question that any tree surgeon should ask you when drafting a quote.
Any tree within a conservation area with a 7.5cm diameter stem at the height of 1.5m will require written permission from the local planning authority. This includes trees that were planted by you, so please be careful. So, before you carry out any tree work, please make sure you have written permission from your Local Authority.
Restrictive covenants are written agreements between two people. Commonly the builder – homeowner or land purchaser – landowner.
It applies to the building/land but not the person. It still applies long after the original builder/homeowner has moved.
It places restrictions on the removal/alteration of effects within the land/ property, including trees and hedges.
Therefore, you may need to make sure you have permission before carrying out work on trees and hedges.
But Why Hire a Professional, Qualified Tree Surgeon?
Arborists have to be professionally qualified and insured to over £15 million in public liability insurance. They have many years of experience in tree felling, crown reduction, assessing tree health and dealing with local authorities. So, we highly recommend you hire one to help with your property maintenance.
