We start with an inspection and assessment of the tree, before taking appropriate restorative measures to bring your tree back to good health, strength, vitality and shape. Trees can be abused by being mismanaged or through misguided pruning of limbs or trees could become damaged in storms, high winds or bouts of cold and freezing weather. As a result the tree could struggle to recover without some restorative treatment can recover.
The extent of recovery depends on:
- The species characteristics including the ability of the tree to compartmentalize decay.
- The extent of tree damage and the location of it.
- The skill of the arborist attempting the tree restoration and the associated tree surgery services offered.
The arborist cannot affect the first two above. However we at Arborfield Tree Care can assist with tree restoration services with our experienced and knowledgeable team. Restoring a tree to a sustainable structure following damage is time consuming, takes several prunings over a number of years. This is difficult to teach to others and takes a lot of time to develop the skill set required to do this proficiently. It is difficult to actually restore a tree to its previous condition; restoration actually does more to improve structure than it does to restore it.
One of nature’s most self-sufficient plants, trees still benefit from a little science based care. Arborfield Tree care help keep them healthy and trouble-free for longer. In return, trees give us so much including beautiful aesthetics, shady places to relax, heritage, habitat for wildlife and fauna, and of course the clean air to breathe.
Plant Health Care is a broad term used to describe services that can boost a tree’s resistance to pests and pathogens, ultimately prolonging the tree’s life. Regular tree health checks can determine current or potential problems, while decompaction boosts a tree’s overall health and resistance from root to crown. Roots can be given a new lease of life with decompaction, particularly if they’re situated in a building site or car park. Diseases and pests can be identified, and decay detected, before we give you a recommended plan of action and advice on your best next steps.
