Exmouth Ash Dismantle

By | Exmouth, Tree Felling

This Exmouth Ash Dismantle was growing too large between customers garage and the house of their neighbour, it had gotten to the point where the tree had to be felled. Job’s like these in confined spaces with nearby property to consider further prove the time and care we put into felling and dismantling trees.

It is always a priority of ours at Jurassic Tree Services that our work causes the least amount of disturbance as possible, this job went to plan and the surrounding property was left completely undamaged.

Exmouth Tree Removal & Re-Pollard

By | Exmouth, Pollarding & Pruning, Tree Felling

Tree removal for this Exmouth customer’s front garden contained a Birch tree whose enormous size and presence was a large obstruction to the front garden. It caused a lot of maintenance for the customer who was constantly raking up falling leaves. Additionally, it limited them to what they could do with the garden because of the sheer volume the Birch was taking up. The Birch tree was removed without issue, despite being close to the road. A very low-profile and safe stump was left in the ground.

In the back garden, an Ash tree located next to a fence had also begun to grow too large, causing a foreboding shadow in the summer and overhanging into a neighbours garden all year-round. The Ash tree was re-pollarded, taking huge amounts of the branches away whilst leaving enough for the Ash tree to still live and grow back given enough time. Pollarding is a pruning system in which the upper branches of a tree are removed, promoting a dense head of foliage and branches.

Pollarding is a tree pruning technique that develops a framework of bare scaffold branches with a gnarly knob at the end of each branch.  Every spring numerous straight long and leafy sprouts emerge from these knobs to produce a dense, shady canopy. As far as we know pollarding started in the Middle Ages in Europe in order to produce kindling for fireplaces and fodder for livestock. Nowadays we pollard to manage the size of a tree that is too large for its space and/or to create a formal look in the landscape.

A formal garden can be created in so many other ways. So if you prefer to see smaller trees chosen for smaller spaces, call me for a quote and some creative input!

Group SOS Tree Effort – Neighbours Unite

By | Exmouth, Tree Felling

This Exmouth large Oak tree dismantling was necessary as it was definitely not pleasing to the eye, and dead branches from a poor prior reduction were overhanging into three other neighbour’s properties. The tree was blocking a lot of light from streaming into their gardens and houses. Between the four of these property owners, they rallied together as good neighbours do, and each paid a share for the removal of the tree. All four customers are now enjoying a lot more light!  And now the removal is fully completed it provides a well used focal point for the garden and future landscaping projects.

You can foster relationships between your neighbours by coming together on projects like this; it’s a perfect way to get to know each other! By encouraging each other to maintain your gardens, trees, and hedges you’re adding to the aesthetics of your property and ultimately your street. If your property shares a boundary with a neighbour’s property, there are a few aspects of the law (and good neighbourliness) that you need to bear in mind when growing trees/hedges. Jurassic Tree Services will take the hassle out of the job for you. I cover what you need to know and also what you can do if you are having problems with your neighbour’s trees, so you don’t have to worry about checking a tree preservation order for instance. I check all that for you.
