What Is Emergency Tree Work?
If you have never considered what might constitute emergency tree work before, below are some examples of the types of arboricultural issues you may encounter that normally require urgent action:
- Fire – If a tree on your property catches fire, you obviously need to deal with it immediately. In the first instance, you should call the emergency fire services of course. After that, you may need the services of a local tree surgeon, to determine whether the tree in question can be saved and, if it can, what needs to be done.
- Weather Damage – One of the most common reasons we are asked to perform emergency tree work is storm damage. Trees that are severely damaged by high winds can pose a danger to people or property in their immediate vicinity and need to be attended to as quickly as possible.
- Pests or Disease – If you notice a tree on your land that is in distress, either because of a pest infestation or disease, we recommend contacting a local tree surgeon without delay. The sooner your tree receives professional attention, the greater the chances it will make a full recovery.
- Intentional Damage by Vandals – Unfortunately, some trees are affected by vandalism. If this happens to a tree on your property, please don’t hesitate to call us immediately so we can provide you with a professional assessment and plan of action.
For more information on the different types of emergency tree work we can perform, please feel free to call and speak to us or to leave us a message whenever you wish.
