Oak Tree Pruning in Bexley

Our tree surgeons recently visited a site in Bexley to remove deadwood from a client's Oak trees. They removed significant deadwood above a 25mm branch diameter from Oak trees that overhang the client's driveway and road. This keeps the area safe for those passing by underneath the impressive oak trees.

Some deadwood was just shortened in length as aerial dead wood provides a niche habitat for saprophytic organisms (organisms that get their energy from dead and decaying organic matter e.g. many fungi).

Deadwooding is where branches or limbs die off within a tree and can either break off or become vulnerable.

Deadwooding should be carried out for safety as over time these dead branches will eventually decay and fall off or dislodge during high winds. If dead limbs are left, they can also affect the overall health of the tree. Deadwooding can also have an aesthetic benefit as it lets more light pass through the tree.

If you have significant sized trees in areas or overhanging areas where people or vehicles pass by, it is important that you get them assessed on a regular basis to ensure that they do not pose a safety risk. Call in a tree surgeon for advice and they can recommend an appropriate and pragmatic approach to managing your trees taking into account their age, condition, species and proximity and frequency of access to people, vehicles and other properties.
