The site was left as too soil for the land owner to decide on the next stage, a few ideas have been thrown around to create a low maintenance garden in which the residents of the adjacent bungalow can enjoy.

Conifer Removal Middleton in Teesdale

A recent job we carried out was removal of this large conifer in a rear garden in Middleton in Teesdale.

The conifer had just gotten too large for it’s surroundings and the owner decided to have it removed for fear of damage being caused if it was to shed any limbs.

The conifer needed to be climbed and technically dismantled due to the very tight drop zone surrounding the tree. The tree was right above a garden shed and next to a new summer house.

We dismantled the conifer safely from top to bottom with no damage to the surrounding garden.

Tree Surgeon in Barnard Castle

One of this weeks jobs was to remove these large conifer trees in Barnard Castle, Co. Durham.

The four large conifers were felled, and chipped on site and all waste removed. The home owner intends on plating the area up with low growing shrubs such as those to rhght of the hedge.

Woodland Maintenance

A recent job we carried out was crown lifting and maintaining this yound woodland for Lazer tag uk – lasertaguk.net

The woodland is a brand mew site for a outdoor lazer quest company based in Weston Super Mare.

The woodland os approximately 15 years old and is a mixture of native British trees such as Oak, Ash, Sycamore and Cherry. The trees have never had any maintenance since being planted so we went in to raise the canopies and remove the lower branches on the trees for people to pass under easily. This also massively benefits the trees and the woodland ground as it allows sunight in to encourage woodland ground growth.

Here at Wilkinson Tree Care we carry out all aspects of Tree Surgery, Ground Maintenance and Woodland Management. For a free no obligation quote give us a call on 01740 238315 or 07845 689903

Oak Tree Trimmed and Crown Lifted in Teesdale.

A recent job we carried out at Wilkinson Tree Care was to deadwood, trim and crown lift this large oak in Middleton in Teesdale.

This mature oak was in reasonably good health however did carry a lot of deadwood. Removing dead wood from a tree is very important in the maintenance of a tree and the preservation of the trees life. Removing these dead bramches helps prevent insects and decay organisms from entering the tree. It speeds up the process of repair for the tree too and then there’s the obvious reason, to prevent any damage to surrounding buildings from fallong wood.

The Oak in question also benefitted from a small crown lift to lift the canopy away from the road beneath and tje adjacent greenhouse.
