For those lucky enough to have a wonderful garden or some acres that are full of wonderful oaks or elms etc., being able to wander amongst nature is what keeps us relaxed. This being said, some of the larger specimens, although they take a long time to grow in most cases, can get a little out of hand when they start encroaching on buildings etc. If this happens, it is surely time for a company to be called that can deal with the problem quickly to stop any damage from occurring. To find out which companies operate in the local area, look online for ‘tree trimming’ or ‘tree pruning’. This should bring a selection of qualified companies up for the householder to choose from.
These are highly qualified individuals who will understand how these specimens grow and what their natural habitats are. Indeed, they can also advise on diseases and how to treat them too. For the growth of the specimen, if the whole look of it is to be kept under control, then it is vital to get branches lopped off now and then. Although some people think that this is merely taking a saw and getting rid of a branch that is growing in the wrong direction, then they are sadly mistaken. Indeed, what they have to do is to study the whole body of the specimen and decide where to make cuts.
Some roots of the specimens will naturally spread very far and wide. When planting any of them, it is best to get advice on how far from buildings they should be. Some people doubt that a specimen should be planted so far away when it is just a seedling of course, but it is only some years down the line when the damage is seen if it was planted too close. The great thing about getting in these professionals too is that they will clean up their mess after them. They will also take branches and mulch them for the householder to use back on the garden too if they are not diseased. Diseased branches will have to be burned immediately or disposed of very far away so that they do not infect other specimens nearby.
A good example of this was some years back when a vast number of elms in England had to be destroyed because of Dutch elm disease. The spread of the disease was absolutely phenomenal and the destruction afterwards was devastating for many communities. Some of these specimens had been in situ for hundreds of years so it really changed the landscape forever.
Lastly, good companies will also advise on any other plant life in the garden too and will draw attention to things that the householder may have overlooked. Get the whole garden looked at every year to avoid having to destroy a favorite specimen or to avoid damage to foundations etc. Family and neighbors may also know of good companies in the area so try asking around before opting to sign any contract.
