Tree Surgeons In Norfolk

Today our tree surgeons in Norfolk have been called in to clear some fallen branches do to heavy rain and strong winds…
The tree is was located within the grounds of one of old peoples homes which we manage. We carry out annual risk assessments on all the sites that we manage, preferably in late September or early October when the fungal fruiting bodies are most likely to be present.
 
The risk assessment involves walking through the site and inspecting the trees condition and noting any possible weaknesses in the tree structure and health. These are then recorded so you can then see if the conditions deteriorate. The remedial works can then be carried out if needed to lessen the possibility of a failure.
 
Because tree work is not a exact science you can never be 100% certain with regards to the stability of trees. All you can do is keep records of what you can see above ground.
 
The tree which shed the branches in this case looks ok in structure but has a little die back on some of the branch tips and it would not have been possible to foresee this happening so in this circumstance could not have been avoided.
 
Once we have completed the clearing of the branches we are going to carry out a reduction on the tree to lessen the wind resistance to help avoid this happening again. Normally the tree would have been left and no work carried out but because of its location in a parking area and overhanging a busy road we feel a reduction would be the best thing to lessen the risk of this happening again.
 
This particular tree has a tree preservation order on it so any work will be carried out after we have consent from the local district council in the case King’s Lynn and West Norfolk.
