Tree surgeon Maidstone, tree planting & diseased trees kent
16th December 2013
The first half of last week was spent carrying out various tree surgery jobs for Maidstone Borough Council at a number of their parks and open spaces. While the chaps were busy with that, I turned my hand to a little planting job for one of our regular clients Livis Limited.
Livis is a specialist civil engineering contractor primarily serving the Rail and Transport industry and whenever they need tree or vegetation management work at their sites, they come to us. They are set to move into new premises this Christmas and asked us to carry out a number of tree crown reductions as well as cutting back >100m of overgrown Laurel hedge and lastly this little planting Job in the car park.
Later in the week we were carrying out some local Authority work down in the Hastings area where Jay took this rather nice picture of the sunrise.
We also removed a large Ash tree from a rear garden in Hartley after it shed some large limbs in the recent storm. On closer inspection, we spotted that the tree was infected with Innonotus Hispidus wood decay fungi which had weakened the limbs and as it was in the main stem too, the owner made the decision to remove the tree. If you see any of this on your Ash trees, it’s bad news so give us a call to come and check it. It’s usually high on the stem or branches or the blackened remains are often found on the ground around the tree having fallen off. If you’re unsure, it’s always better to err on the side of caution so do give us a call and don’t worry, It won’t necessarily mean the tree needs removing completely.
Another satisfied client emailed this to us last week.
Please thank your hardworking chaps for a splendid job.
Happy Xmas and a prosperous new year.
On Friday I finally got the call to say my new Truck will be delivered next (this) week but it’s so close to Christmas now, I don’t think we’ll bother getting it dirty until the New Year. Just one more week now to get everything done and finished before our annual Christmas closedown which I am very much looking forward to.
