Tree Surgery in Billericay

Choosing a Crestwood Tree Surgeon in Billericay

A tree is an invaluable choice for the picturesque value it brings to your property. As trees grow they will need ongoing maintenance and if you’ve lived in a house for a period of time, you might find yourself in the situation where your trees have begun to create an issue.

Leaves and branches can block light and leave debris that needs clearing up on a daily basis. Or your tree may need a few branches removed to prevent damage to yours or a neighbour’s property.

Your tree may be showing signs of stress or decline, perhaps due to disease, decay or otherwise. We can identify these issues and advice on a course of action.

The team of Crestwood tree surgeons have the experience to deliver the right solution for your arboricultural issues. So from tree planting to stump grinding, choosing a Crestwood tree surgeon means you get fully insured, professional arboricultural services for either domestic or commercial customers in Billericay and the surrounding area. Any waste from our work is cleared and used for biomass and mulching.

Why Maintaining Your Trees is Important

Trees not only add aesthetic value to your property, but they add financial value too. Trees and hedges create stunning views, make areas feel less stressful, provide privacy and hide any unsightly views.

The benefits, even for trees on private property, can be felt across the community. They can reduce noise and create shade in the summer. Trees also offer habitats for wildlife.

Getting trees and hedges maintained and cared for without risk of damage to person or property means getting professional help. A tree that’s not maintained for decades can cause damage to yours or a neighbouring property.

Experienced and Fully Qualified Tree Surgeons

When a tree is felled or dismantled there is a risk of damage to property or people. So we always recommend that any tree work or pruning should only be carried out by qualified professionals, with experience of both the work required and the type of tree that’s being worked on. You don’t want lasting damage to a tree that’s taken decades to grow.

And it’s not just about felling trees. Crestwood tree surgeons deliver a range of services that includes planting the right trees for your requirements.

Correct insurance is crucial too. If there were damage to a third party’s property or worse, a bystander was injured, you could be personally liable.

Crestwood has over 10 years’ experience and our team is NPTC qualified, the professional standard in the UK for arboricultural and forestry competences. This also includes proper practice in working with chainsaws. Alongside this, our work is in line with British Standard 3998, the Arboriculture and Forestry Advisory Group (AFAG) guidelines, as well as HSE regulations.

Each of our individual technicians is insured and we hold £10m public liability insurance too.

Do I need permission to cut or remove a tree? +

If the tree is on your land, you would normally only need permission if your tree is subject to a tree preservation order (TPO) or is protected as part of Conservation Area rules.

If your tree is subject to preservation order and you think it has become an issue, you can apply to the local authority for permission to carry out any work. There are penalties for not complying with any laws that are in place on a tree. Get in touch with us and we can advise you on a specification and deal with the application process for you.

How do I know if there is a problem with my tree? +

Trees display symptoms of stress, be it of disease, pests, climate or water implications in different ways, sometimes years after the problem arises.

Our staff are experienced and knowledgeable in observing and diagnosing problems that a tree may be displaying.

We can advise you on a course of action too. You can be safe in the knowledge that you’re are dealing with expert, professional staff.

Can I cut back my neighbour’s tree? +

A tree is owned by the person who owns the property in which it grows. If a neighbour’s tree grows over your boundary you are entitled to cut it back to your boundary line. However, if there is a tree preservation order in place you should seek advice first from a tree specialist first.

In any case, if you’re going to thin a neighbour’s tree it’s worth speaking to them first. Just cutting back the branches may cause lasting damage. After the tree has been cut back, the tree owner has the right to ask for any branches or fruit you’ve cut from the tree (although you have no right to ask them to come and clean up fallen leaves).

If a tree is causing damage, to gutters for example, or the roots are causing subsidence your neighbour may also be responsible for the costs.

How much do tree surgeons cost? +

All trees and hedges are different and the cost depends on the type of work required and other factors like safe access to the tree. But our tree surgeons offer a free, no obligation quote. Our services are fairly priced and competitive too. Contact us today to talk about your requirements.

Are you qualified and insured? +

Tree work carries a risk of damage and injury so it’s vital that your tree surgeon be qualified, experienced and insured.  Safety is key too as you may be personally liable if anything were to go wrong. The Crestwood team is NPTC qualified, the professional standard in the UK for working with chainsaws and arboricultural equipment. We also hold a £10m public liability insurance and each of our individual technicians is insured too.
