INSURANCE TREE WORK

INSURANCE TREE WORK

As an established and highly recommended business we have a respectable reputation with the NHS, Local Councils and Insurance Companies.

Earlier this year a managing agent based within the Bromley area contacted us as we had been recommended by an insurance company to them.   One of their properties had a large Lime Tree which was causing subsidence issues to the property due to it’s size and location.

Upon inspection we noted the tree did have a Tree Preservation Order (TPO – Protected by the local council) against it, in order to carry out works on this an application had to be made to Bromley Council.  The application consists of having an experienced and qualified Arborist carry out an inspection and put together a report of his findings along with his proposal of recommendations on what works should be carried out.

We use only the most highly and respected company in the area, who is extremely experienced, professional and fantastic with his time keeping in chasing the council for you and us so that we just handle the manual labour.

Once permissions had been granted in writing to confirm they were happy for the tree to be carefully dismantled, our team went in and carried out the dismantling safely.  These works were carried out over 3 days, below are some pictures for your to see for yourself the before, after and process.

Tree Reports

Health & Safety Tree Reports

Are you concerned about the welfare of your trees or even concerned that your tree may pose as a threat of subsidence to your property, then  Health & Safety Tree Report is needed and JJ&B Treecare can help!

We have a dedicated team of Arborists who are experienced and trained/qualified to the very best standards whom are able to visit your home and carry out an Arboriculture Consultancy Report.

They will examine and inspect your tree, by then providing you with the results of their findings and their trusted recommendations on what action to take.

On a weekly basis we deal with tree’s that are within a conservation area or do have a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) against them meaning works cannot be carried out without application to the council and permissions granted.  To carry out the application as you can imagine can be time consuming, however this is something our dedicated team of Arborists can do for you.

If you would more information please feel free to call or email.  We will only be too happy to help.

 

New Research Could Save Ash Trees!

Our Ash Trees need saving!

And according to the Tree Council, new research on the Ash dieback may be able to save our UK Ash Trees!

Check out our previous post on the Ash Tree dieback here for more information.

To help stop the spread of the Ash Tree dieback, we are offering FREE Health Checks for your Ash Trees and any other trees or shrubs.  Just get in touch to arrange a free inspection.

Ash Tree set for Extinction in Europe

The ash tree is likely to be wiped out in Europe, according to a review of the evidence.

The trees are being killed off by the fungal disease ash-dieback along with an                                                                                                                                                    invasive beetle called the emerald ash borer.

According to the research, published in the Journal of Ecology, the British countryside will never look the same again.

The paper says that the ash will most likely be “eliminated” in Europe.

This could mirror the way Dutch elm disease largely wiped out the elm in the 1980s.

Ash trees are a key part of the treescape of Britain. You don’t have to go to the countryside to see them.                                                                                                             In and around towns and cities there are 2.2 million. In woodland, only the oak is more common.

OUR WORK: Magnolia Grandiflora Hedgerow

We were working in London yesterday on a beautiful row and superb species of Magnolia Grandiflora!                                     There were twelve of these amazing trees in total, forming a Hedgerow.

All specimens had lots of decayed wood and rubbing and crossing branches throughout.

To the clients delight, we removed all of the deadwood, decayed wood, rubbing and crossing branches.                                        The end result is something that JJ&B Treecare are very  proud of, as is our client.

As you can see from the images, our tree care work has given these trees the space they need and will allow                                    more light to reach the leaves.

If you require tree care works, no matter how big or small, care for your garden now, so that it is ready for Spring to begin!
