A York Tree Surgeon (or Arborist) helps to treat sick or indeed damaged trees. They also remove dead ones that could be problematic. The treatment of a sick tree could involve anything from removing parts, to removing fungus and bacteria with insecticides. They also help to remove branches which may pose a falling hazard.
This article is to help understand just a few of the roles they fulfil:
Tree surgeons spend a large proportion of their job cutting back trees which may be causing a falling risk, or growing too closely to powerlines etc. This is a delicate job which needs a lot of consideration in order to avoid stressing the trees. This job is of particular interest to power companies who employ tree surgeons to prune trees growing near power lines in order to keep their network running.
Tree Surgeons often have to deal with fallen, or dead trees. The may have to felled due to proximity to a house, or because they are dead and present a falling risk. Once felled, they have to be cut into manageable sizes. Only then can the roots and stump be removed, which can involve stump grinding, a lot of digging, or the use of chemicals.
Treating Bacteria and Fungal Infections
There are many different bacteria and fungus types that can do serious damage, no matter how large. A tree surgeon will be able to detect and diagnose any of these problems with your tree, and recommend a suitable solution. Anitbiotics and fungicides can be applied directly to the trunk or leaves depending on the problem.
This is a specialist technique which a tree surgeon will be able to advise on. It can be as straightforward as trying to grow a new tree from an existing cutting, or the joining of two struggling trees to form one.
Tree surgery is a highly specialised job, and should only really be undertaken by professionals. If you would like receive a free tree surgery quote and you're in York give us a call.
