How Professional Tree Surgeons in Aberdeen Can Help Your Organisation
Unless one possesses specialist knowledge and years of relevant experience, successfully caring for even a small wooded area can be an extremely difficult task. Whilst healthy specimens may survive for hundreds of years without human intervention, stressed trees are a different matter altogether. And, in unmanaged woodlands, nature often conspires to place great stress on trees of all types and sizes. However, there is a very simple solution, and one that is easily accessible to commercial entities and public sector organisations in Aberdeen: hiring a professional tree surgeon. Aberdeenshire is home to several arboricultural service providers capable of managing commercial and public woodland, including, of course, Epic Tree Care. As highly trained, highly experienced and fully qualified tree surgeons, we can meet all of your needs in this respect and we also have the knowledge and expertise to care for individual trees on all types of properties.
How Professional Tree Surgeons in Aberdeen Can Help Local Homeowners
Whilst much of our work is in the field of commercial woodlands and forestry management, we also provide a wide range of arboricultural services to homeowners in Aberdeenshire and adjacent areas. Among the services we offer that are designed to make life easier for local residents are the following:
- Tree Health Surveys – If you want to make sure that your trees are getting the best care possible, a tree health survey is an excellent place to start. We can perform a comprehensive inspection of all your trees and let you know what, if anything, needs to be done to keep them in good health.
- Tree Risk Assessments – In addition to surveying the health of trees in domestic gardens, we are also fully qualified to perform tree risk assessments. These assessments include both a detailed visual inspection and a thorough physical examination.
- Pruning – As highly experienced tree surgeons in Aberdeenshire, we can prune trees of all types and sizes with ease. Whether you have a couple of trees that need some gentle pruning or a number of unruly specimens that require a little more attention, we’ll be delighted to oblige.
- Tree Removal – Sometimes, even with the best will in the world, it is not possible to let a tree continue growing in its current location. If a tree on your land is posing a threat to your property, or to you and your family, we can remove it quickly, safely and efficiently.
- Tree Stump Removal – When trees are felled, many companies simply leave the stump in the ground. At Epic Tree Care, we understand how inconvenient leftover tree stumps can be, which is why we provide a professional tree stump removal service to all our domestic customers. Using powerful stump grinders, we’re able to make short work of all kinds of tree stumps.
If you need help with any of the trees in your garden, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the team at Epic Tree Care. We will be delighted to tell you all about our services and to provide any further information you may need, including full pricing details.
What We Do for Local Businesses and Government Authorities
There are a number of specific ways in which, as experienced tree surgeons in Aberdeenshire, we are able to help local organisations manage forestry plantations and woodland areas more efficiently:
Overcrowding is the leading cause of stress in trees that are growing in commercial forestry plantations and unmanaged woodland areas. The solution to this particular problem is selective thinning: removing some of the weaker trees in the most densely wooded areas in order to provide stronger specimens with conditions more conducive to continued good health and growth. In addition to the obvious commercial advantages (more productive woodland areas are more profitable), thinning also offers environmental benefits. Unmanaged forests tend to prevent sunlight from reaching the floor below, thereby inhibiting the growth of ground flora. Selective thinning helps more light to reach the woodland understorey, encouraging the growth of plants at this level, which in turn provide the perfect habitat for a rich and diverse variety of insects, birds and other animals. As arboricultural specialists, we’re able to provide expert thinning services to both private and public sector clients.
Trees that are damaged in stormy weather can pose a danger to other trees in the area as well as to workers and visitors to the sites in question. However, with the help of a skilled tree surgeon in Aberdeenshire, such issues are easily resolved. We can take care of any storm damaged specimens on your land in Aberdeenshire, ensuring the continued safety of staff and visitors. As highly experienced professionals, we have dealt with hundreds of storm damaged trees over the years and are capable of tackling jobs of all sizes, on all types of land.
Felling non-domestic trees without first obtaining a licence can lead to fines of up to £5,000 for each offence (i.e. each tree) as well as a criminal record. We apply for licences on behalf of our commercial clients, ensuring that any and all felling activities we perform are in full accordance with Scottish Forestry regulations. We can also provide replanting recommendations, ensuring that suitable species are chosen to replace felled specimens.
In addition to our on-demand services, we provide comprehensive forestry and woodland management services to clients across Aberdeenshire and the surrounding area. If you’re looking for a team of tree surgeons in Aberdeen that can provide high-quality management services at reasonable rates, Epic Tree Care should be your first port of call. With rising timber prices, many areas of currently unmanaged woodland can now be profitably managed once more, assuming you possess the requisite expertise. Epic Tree Care can provide you with this expertise and handle all management tasks on your behalf.
If you have any questions about our commercial forestry and woodland management services, please contact us by phone or email.
Trees are more fragile than most realise. To protect themselves our Tree Surgeons in Aberdeenshire will typically:
- Check the weather before commencing work.
- Inspect the tree before ascending the tree.
- Wear appropriate PPE clothing.
The potential risks associated with tree care services include:
- Falls from height: Tree Surgeons spend much of their working life in the canopy. As such, falling is an ever-present risk.
- Ladders: The taller the ladder the greater the risk of a mishap.
- Working alone: Working alone can be risky. In the event of an accident, the Tree Surgeon may be stranded in the tree in need of urgent medical attention for some time.
At Epic Tree Care we adhere to best practices established by the HSE, including:
- Performing detailed planning before commencing work.
- Assessing a project for risks.
- Ensuring all work is properly supervised.
- Making sure all work is performed in a safe manner.
- Making sure only competent individuals are tasked with performing tree care.
- Ensuring all equipment is properly maintained.
- Staying current with HSE safety guidelines.
Frequently Asked Questions
We provide a full range of tree care services including tree maintenance and removal, tree inspections and tree health surveys, woodland thinning and a variety of hedge care services.
At Epic Tree Care environmental responsibility is a top priority. We aim to recycle 99% of all waste created by our tree work. We process this material in-house turning it into firewood or woodchips that can be donated to local projects, sold for biomass or composted.
If you suspect a problem with one or more of your trees the best thing to do is to call the experts at Epic Tree Care. We will send a Tree Surgeon to your property to conduct an assessment, and if need be, recommend remedial action.
It depends on the work (removal, for instance, will almost always require planning permission). It also depends on whether there is an active Tree Preservation Order in effect. The Arborist from Epic Tree Care can conduct a search to determine if a Preservation Order exists.
If a tree contains an active bird’s nest, certain types of work like pruning and removal will be prohibited until the nesting season is over. Birds usually nest between late spring and early summer. So if you want to have tree care work performed try to schedule it between mid-summer and mid-spring the following year.
