Autumn is fast approaching as I am sure many of you will have noticed with the nights getting darker earlier, meaning soon our tree’s will be shedding leaves ready to grow new ones next spring.

Large Pine Tree Dismantled

Unfortunately, this Pine Tree located in Keston Park, Bromley, had to be removed by JJ&B Treecare Ltd, due to the tree being deemed unsafe.  The tree was also in a Conservation Area and held a Tree Preservation Order.

Pine Tree

We carried out a full Arboricultural Survey Report on this tree, including a Picus Test.

Picus Test Being Carried Out                        Picus Test Results

From these results, we discovered that the tree was a health and safety hazard and would need to be removed.   We applied to the local council on behalf of our client with our findings and conclusions, who then granted us permission for the tree to be removed.

The job itself took a couple of days to remove, as it was extremely large and we needed to ensure the safety of our staff and the clients property.  You can see from the images that it was located very close to their house.

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.

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!
