Essential Tree Surgery Information

Generally, trees are fairly low maintenance – you might have the branches trimmed occasionally or a little reshaping done.  But they don’t need the hands-on, constant care than some shrubs and plants do.  However, there are situations in winter when you may need an expert in tree surgery to help your tree manage.

Cold stress is the name given to the constant freeze and thaw process we often see in winter.  You know those days where the sun shines then at night there’s a heavy frost – that creates cold stress on the trees.  It also freezes any moisture in cracks in the trees and can force them open.

A lot of the time, the tree carries on.  It has been around for a while, this isn’t the first winter it has been through.  But some trees, younger ones in particular, can suffer more with cold stress.  Or it might be that there are early frosts on late growth that have caused damage.  These are situations when you may need a tree surgeon to take a look at the tree.

For example, it is best to avoid pruning until the tree enters the dormancy period in autumn otherwise the action might stimulate new growth – which is then affected by the cold.  So get a tree surgeon to give you advice on not only where needs pruning but when it best to help your tree manage the winter.
