Tree Surgeons Bedford

There are few things in this life that are better than trees when it comes to improving the atmosphere and appearance of a residential or commercial property. But, as with everything in this world, there can also be drawbacks. If not looked after properly by a tree surgeon in Bedford, trees can cause problems and even pose a danger to human life.

That’s why the services of an expert tree surgeon can be vital. Thankfully our tree surgery technicians are highly experienced in the field and pride ourselves on the quality of our tree care and removal services.

This is what you should know. Before our tree surgeons begin any work, they will undertake an in-depth tree assessment and then decide upon the most appropriate course of action. All of this is done with your best interests in mind.

It’s easy to make the mistake of thinking that tree surgery is just a matter of chopping, felling, cutting and taking away trees but, in reality, we do far more than just that. Skilled arborists possess a greater level of scientific expertise, knowledge and experience than a regular tree surgeon can offer.

They understand the anatomy of a tree and its ecosystem, meaning they can provide a top quality service when it comes to tree maintenance, health and pruning.

But don’t just take our word for it. Take a look at this summary of the many things we can do for you.

Services

Tree Felling

This is an act that may be carried out in order to make space for future projects or for logging or simply for clearing an area.

Tree Pruning

The removal of dead or unwanted branches will assist in promoting a safe and healthy tree growth, ensuring your tree’s long-term vitality.

Hedge Trimming

Hedge trimming is a service that needs to be performed frequently in order to maintain the shape of the hedge and to prevent it becoming an annoying and unruly mess.

Tree Reduction

This involves the reducing of the height of a tree. This is done in order to encourage the development of the tree’s lower shoots and help it to age in as natural a way as possible.

Tree Pollarding

Pollarding encourages the development of a dense head of foliage and is predominantly intended to keep a tree at the ideal height. This is especially useful for maintaining a uniform height when a number of trees are standing in a line.

Stump Grinding

In order to remove a tree stump, our experts can grind it at ground level. Thanks to this, over the passage of time, the roots will decay naturally. Wood chips created by the grinding can then be used as mulch, for ground cover. For customers on a limited budget, this process can be far more economical than simply having the whole stump be removed in one go.

Tree Shaping

It may be necessary to prevent a tree from spreading into unwanted areas, or in order to improve the quality of the flowers on it. Tree shaping is a specialised form of pruning which is carried out by our experts, in order to maintain the ideal shape for the tree.

Crown Thinning

This is a task carried out to increase both air circulation and the penetration of light in the tree’s crown. It involves the removal of smaller and tertiary branches from the outer crown, which produces a more consistent foliage density without altering the overall shape or size of the tree.

Tree Removal

We can completely remove a tree. This may be carried out because it is causing an obstruction, is diseased, is impacting upon a neighbouring property or has become a threat to health and safety. This isn’t an easy feat and such a service requires a qualified professional with exactly the right level of sophistication, expertise and equipment.

Crown Reductions

This is a form of pruning which is carried out in order to decrease the height and the spread of the tree’s crown and it involves the selective removal of live branches. This can help reduce the amount of shade cast by the tree and can assist in the maintenance of the tree, relative to its immediate environment.

Tree Stump Removal

Tree stumps that have been left behind after a previous felling operation can be invasive and dangerous. We can dispose of them, leaving your property free of such potentially harmful obstacles.

Tree Maintenance

This involves the fertilisation and treatment of a tree, in order to improve both its appearance and its health.

The Main Benefits Of Using A Professional Tree Surgeon

Experience

You may possess a tree that seems to be in need of removal but you aren’t sure if it can be saved instead. If you fail to hire an experienced tree surgeon, you could find yourself launching into such hasty actions as tree removal, tree cutting or excessive pruning, which could damage the health of your tree and end up costing you far more money than if you’d engaged the services of an expert right from the start. An experienced tree surgeon can determine whether a tree really does need to be removed or if it can, instead, be saved.

Unlike an unqualified trimmer, qualified tree surgeons use scientific knowledge and the best technology to carry out their duties, using well-tested methods for tree maintenance and care.

Tree Health Care

Trees that are not properly looked after can develop diseases, be subject to insect and pest attack and become vulnerable to the elements. All of this can cost you money to put right and can pose a danger to human life. Fortunately, tree surgeons can carry out preventative care to make sure a tree stays in good health, helping to guard the tree against disease, pests and any problems with the site in which they are located.

A professional tree surgeon will carry out such tasks as safety assessment, aeration to improve root growth, fertilisation, and spraying to control disease and pests. These actions will increase a tree’s longevity and vitality, reducing the long-term cost of looking after it and avoiding the major task of having to carry out a full tree removal.

Safety and Emergency Work

You need to act swiftly if a tree has caused damage with fallen branches or has become a safety risk, following a storm. A tree surgeon can identify which areas need to be pruned and also work out a strategy for the tree’s safe removal, should that be necessary. This will make sure that no one is harmed by the increasingly hazardous tree. On top of that, such factors as electrical lines have to be dealt with by using the most serious care. Following such a storm, a professional tree surgeon will work with your power provider, in order to dispose of a downed tree.

Clearing Space

Trees can become a nuisance when they overhang a neighbour’s property or if they are littering the area with stumps when you want to launch a building project. Both of these can cost you money and lead to annoyance and aggravation. That’s where a tree surgeon is useful. A surgeon can fell trees, remove stumps or prune obstructions. This can be done in the most cost-effective way possible, saving you money, and the surgeon’s efficiency will also save you time. This will, of course, be done in the safest manner possible, preventing injury to you and damage to the surroundings.

The Cost Of Tree Surgery In Bedford

There is no set price for tree surgery in Bedford. This will depend on a number of factors.  For instance, your needs may vary dependent on whether your property is residential or commercial.

Because the complexity of a project and the labour costs will vary from job to job, the number of services you require and the nature of them will also affect the price.

Location is also relevant, as are the prevailing weather conditions. Climbing a tree in torrential rain and a howling gale is a very different thing from trimming a low hedge on a nice, pleasant summer’s day and pricing will, therefore, be affected by this.

It should also be noted that different services require different equipment. For example, removing trees will necessitate the hire or purchase of cranes, log trucks and chainsaws. Stump removal, on the other hand, may only require the use of a stump grinder. Such factors will inevitably affect our charges.

But, whatever factors are involved, rest assured that our aim is always to provide you with the most competitive pricing for expert services that you can find in Bedford. Therefore, you can always rely on us to give you the very best value for money.
