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.

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.

For more information on this problem, head to the BBC News website.

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.
