An earlier post on this blog asked the question: Is my tree dying? Particularly at this time of year, our team are often asked another fundamental question: Can my tree be saved?
Thankfully, in our part of the country, from Gravesend to Maidstone, Beckenham to Dorking – in fact right across Kent and Surrey, we have not suffered the catastrophic storm Desmond and its after-affects as the poor folk of Cumbria and the north-west have. Sad to say, though, that we might not be as fortunate right throughout the winter and spring to come.
When a much-loved tree is damaged by either wind or water, it is often an instant reaction to think that it cannot be saved. Occasionally, the damage is too great; but often our expert tree surgery team can carry out careful repair work. It might not be the tree it was, but there is a chance that it can continue to grace your garden for many years to come.
Therefore, if a storm does hit, contact us as quickly as you can, and we’ll soon be assessing what action can be taken. Even better, take the time to examine the trees in your garden now and see if any might be prone to such damage. Call us, it is often possible to carry out preventative tree maintenance that will help those precious old trees better deal with whatever the weather might decide to throw at them!
