Tree Of Heaven

We have been carrying out pruning works on 3 Tree Of Heaven ( Ailanthus) at Wentworth Primary School, Dartford.  Recommended by Kent County Council as approved tree surgeons.

As you will be able to see in the before and after pictures, the difference it makes once all dead wood, decayed wood,  rubbing and crossing branches have been removed.  This will allow the tree to regenerate more healthily and in a uniform fashion.

JJ&B Treecare understand the importance of being able to provide documents such as  Public Liability Insurance, DBS Checks and other relevant documents. Not only does this put the customer’s mind at peace, but in this situation the parents of the children who were attending school on this day.  We pride ourselves in not only paying great attention to the tree we are working on but also the job as a whole.

 If you require a tree specialist  that not only will provide great arboriculture practice but also provide the safety net with being able to provide proof of safety checks, full training certificates and insurances then JJ&B are your company.

Feel free to contact us via email or by telephone on 07966 265 373.


Willow Tree

Today was a very sad day in Petts Wood, Kent.   For many years now we have maintained this stunning Willow Tree, due to being heavily decayed throughout the centre core of the tree it became unstable and needed carefully dismantling. Several fungi cause wood decay in willow trees.  Wood decays are often invisible diseases, rotting the interior of the tree’s trunk and weakening the tree so that it can fall without warning.

There are many reasons for decay, one being harsh and incorrect pruning.  Though we have looked after this tree for 5 years now, unfortunately by the time we took over the damage had already been caused. We tried our very best to maintain the tree, but it was past the point of saving.

At JJ&B Treecare we cannot stress enough the importance of having the correct pruning management carried out on your trees.  If you feel a Willow Tree or any tree on your land or garden could be suffereing with decay please contact us for a FREE HEALTH CHECK.  To get straight through to the man himself who has been in the industry for many years and prides himself in gaining the very best knowledge call Joe on 07966 265 373 or email a member of our admin team to arrange a call back today.







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.


Emergency Call Out in Kent

The past few days we have blogged about the strong winds and fallen trees.  Yesterday Bromley, Bexley and surrounding areas were affected by more strong winds and torrential rain.  Whilst many of us were indoors out the rain, JJ&B were out quoting and attending to emergency call outs, where trees had fallen on to cars, in front gardens etc.


If one of your trees has been affected please call or email remembering we are open 24 hours offering an Emergency Call Out Service.

Lebanese Cedar

Over the past few days we have been working on a Lebanese Cedar Tree which was located in Petts Wood, Orpington. Due to strong winds had lost a large branch and section of the tree, which we paid attention to and cleared away. Unfortunately once again after more strong winds the tree shed another main branch, which upon our customers request and our recommendation we carefully dismantled the tree to avoid it shedding any more causing potential damage to the properties below.


Here are just a few pictures taken whilst our workmen carried out the works required. Fortunately no damage was caused or harm came to anyone from the branch breaking.

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.
