Tree Survive Limited have recently been involved in installing Bird and Bat boxes in Newington Green, London for a London charity The Garden Classroom (TGC) who are a charity and non-profit organisation that provide urban children and adults with transformative outdoor experiences devised to encourage active lifestyles, promote self-discovery, inspire growth and stimulate respect for nature.

We first met The Garden Classroom a couple of years ago when we were asked if we could survey a woodland they use in Kent for their countyside experiences. We have since kept up our commitment to assess the trees in the woodland prior to each time they visit and have also carried out some remedial tree work where necessary.

Tree Top Tips

Trees should have a "health check" once a year as a healthy tree is a safe tree. This means checking for the three D's - Dead Wood, Damaged Wood and Diseased Wood. It is now the end of the growing season and a really good time to deal with these issues. If any of these problems are found they need to be dealt with promptly and safely. Any tears should be cut cleanly back to where is originates from to prevent further damage and decay setting in. The new season of Autumn can usher in strong winds which can cause branches to fail, some branches are lucky enough to fall to the ground, others get caught within the canopy of the tree and can be very heavy. The very heavy branches will need specialists like ourselves to remove these branches in sections and brought to the ground safely.
