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.

Storm Imogen – Weather Warnings – Emergency Tree Care!

We have been keeping an eye on the weather forecast for the South East, London and Kent.  The South East have received  yellow and amber weather warnings from the Met Office, for heavy winds caused by Storm Imogen.

Please be aware of the extremely heavy winds.  Heavy winds have been known to pull out branches and large parts of tree crowns, and even uprooting trees in extreme cases.

If you are in need of an emergency call out, please do not approach the tree yourself, for health and safety reasons.                  Please call us immediately and we will come and assess the damage / remove the tree in the                                                                               safest and quickest possible way.

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!
