Safety is the paramount in modern world and after few storms with much destruction and a number of unfortunate accidents caused by trees, they have become subject to requirements for responsible upkeep and care.
let’s just say that every tree eventually falls down. In any residential environment it is not acceptable and that’s why local boroughs have dedicated departments of tree officers and tree surgeons always busy assessing, profiling and carrying out maintenance work to all trees in their care.
Residents are all required to look after their own trees too. As a matter of fact it is a legal requirement where negligence that leads to harm and damages may be considered a criminal offense.
Basic assessment criteria for determining whether the tree requires specialist attention are: rot and decay at the base of the tree, dying or dead canopy, falling/shedded dead wood, fungi growing on any of the parts of the tree, lightening damage, storm damage, infestation with ants, bees.
Should you discover any of the above symptoms, call your local tree surgery and ask a tree surgeon to come out to give you advice and recommendation. At this stage it’s advisable to get a few opinions and if the advice you get is consistent and prompts you to some remedial works, do not leave it till next season especially if are urged to act as the condition and structural integrity of the tree has been compromised.
