Following some of the areas heavy storms, every year we address damaged tree removal that needs to be dealt with skillfully and efficiently. Luckily no one was injured by this falling Eucalyptus tree in Collumpton, but it did go through the roof of a care home and poked through the ceiling with a patient in bed! No one was hurt and the insurance company paid out for the tree to be removed.
This Collumpton storm-damaged tree removal prevented further damage to the property. We expect more SOS jobs of this kind during severe weather seasons as storms continue to wreak havoc in the local areas.
If a tree splits at a weak fork it is likely to cause a large wound. Whilst the tree may remain structurally safe for some years, decay can develop around this area and the tree may become unsafe, ultimately requiring removal. Where large splits have occurred, it may be sensible to remove the damaged tree and replace it altogether with a new tree.
What can I do about clearing storm-damaged trees in my garden?
Call us to help clear up damaged trees. Do not be tempted to use a chainsaw to fell or cut up damaged trees unless you are experienced and have the appropriate protective clothing. Each year approximately 500 people are seriously injured using chainsaws in their gardens. Even cutting up fallen branches with a chainsaw is hazardous. Members of the public are advised to use qualified tree surgeons in all cases.
