Spring drought continues...

09/05/17

Having received a number of calls or comments from concerned clients recently, I thought i’d write a news piece.

Most of these have been from homeowners worried that their trees have died over the winter having still not come into leaf despite being almost mid May!

For the vast majority there is in fact nothing to worry about, the problem is simply a lack of available ground water to push the leaves open due to the drought like conditions we are currently experiencing in the UK.

Ash, Sweet Chestnut and Beech trees are among those species most affected.

Even in the UK’s wettest spot, seathwaite in Cumbria, the ground is said to be ‘bone dry’ according the news reports raising fears of a full blown summer drought.

As soon as we get some new rainfall the vast majority of these trees will flush into life but for those few that don’t, or if you have any general concerns about your trees health please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We’ll be happy to come out and see you free of charge to give your trees a quick check over to hopefully put your minds at rest or in the case that remedial work is required, provide you with a quotation.
