Understanding trees and things to look out for
It is sometimes easy to forget the massive part trees play in sustaining and improving life.
Trees provide shade from the sun and shelter from the wind and rain. They provide life-giving oxygen with their leaves.
They enrich the soil and provide food, homes and shelter for a great variety of wildlife. With their strength, beauty and stillness they can calm the mind and be a constant pleasure to behold.
It is important however to remember that trees are living, growing and changing all the time. Only when a tree dies does it stop growing. It is therefore vital that we keep an eye on the condition of the trees around us.
It is highly likely that at some point these trees will need some TLC. At this point, it’s important that a qualified arborist can Identify and advise for any preventative measures to be taken and of course undertake works to eliminate dangers. That’s where we can help.
