As we approach the end of nesting season many of you may be itching you get your tree or hedge works done that you may not have been able to do before and we are here to help!
Nesting season usually comes to an end at the end of August, it can be longer depending on the weather. It is an offence under Section 1 of the Wildlife + Countryside Act of 1981 to cut down a hedge/tree intentionally when birds are nesting within it so be sure to check or get your local tree surgeon to check before completing any works!
If you are thinking about getting your trees/hedge done this Autumn/Winter, please get in touch as we are almost fully booked for September and have started making bookings for October and November. Even if your trees are not ready yet, it is best to get a date booked in advanced as we tend to get busier towards the end of the year; especially as we start to sell our firewood as well.
For example if you have some fruit trees (Plum, Apple, Pear…) it is best to prune these towards the end of Autumn/Winter time as this will encourage vigorous growth, new shoots and flowers; therefore more fruit eventually. Pruning at this time of year is ideal for us as the leaves and fruit should have fallen, allowing us to get a better idea of the overall shape and structure of the tree. Of course, you also do not want to prune them too early as this could stimulate new growth when the tree should be getting ready for winter. So get in touch via telephone: 0800 862 0863 or drop us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange for our tree expert Ray to give you a visit 😊
