Environmentally Conscious Tree Surgeons in Blean

Photosynthesis is a continuous process performed by green plants and trees whereby carbon dioxide is absorbed to make glucose, which is the fuel plants require to survive. By chance, a by-product of this chemical process is oxygen. Simply, trees provide us with the oxygen in which we need to breathe – to survive! Unfortunately, is it now all too common to see large abundances of trees being knocked down to make way for houses and other building or roads, with little consideration for the enormous role tree plays in human survival.

Tree Surgeons in Blean

Even individual trees within home gardens are being removed with little consideration to the environment, to make way for home developments including extensions and fences. Arborists professionally tend to and manage shrubs and trees, giving a variety of alternatives to cutting down the tree completely. Better known as tree surgeons, these professionals – including Carefell tree surgeons in Blean - can use a number of different techniques to cut and shape trees whilst still being considerate of the environment and our need to maintain living trees.

One option could be to lift the ‘crown’ of the tree – raising the height of the first branches. This could work well when fencing is being installed as the tree branches could be raised to above the height of the fence, allowing the tree to stay in situ. Another method that could be considered is ‘crown thinning’. By removing weaker branches, this method could reduce the perceived size of the tree and could allow additional light to come through – perfect for a summers day in the garden! This method also reduces the weight of the tree, making it less dangerous in the event of it falling.

If you live in Blean or the surrounding area and are looking at removing a tree from your garden, please call a member of the CareFell team on 01227 764 744 who may be able to give you alternative trimming options meaning you can still make the most of your outdoor spaces whilst allowing your tree to continue its life saving process.
