Essential Tree Surgery Information

Autumn and winter can be tough times for trees.  What with the increased rainfall, snow and ice, the high winds and the cold stress from changing temperatures, there is always the risk that a tree can be damaged in these seasons.  That’s why MIG Garden Care offer tree surgery all year around.

Branch breakage is a common problem during these seasons, especially for deciduous trees.  With these species, the wood hardens when the leaves have been shed and this makes it more likely to be damaged by the wind.  Also, accumulations of ice and snow on the branches can cause them to break.  If you spot problems with branch breakage, it is important to get a tree surgeon to take a look and stop the problem from escalating.

Pruning is about more than just chopping the branches off.  It is about pruning in a particular way to ensure the rest of the tree stays strong while removing any dead or dying branches that could lead to further damage.

For evergreens, which retain their leaves all the way through winter, branch breakage can still be an issued, especially due to the weight of snow after a storm.  However, you can use tope to tie up and reinforce branches to ensure they are less likely to break during the cold months.
