The Importance of Looking After Trees and Hedges

A tree or hedge helps provide privacy, can help create a picturesque scene or hide unsightly views. They can help reduce noise and create shade in the summer. Even when it’s on private property, trees and hedges still benefit the neighbourhood and wider community. They bring habitats for wildlife and improve your general sense of well-being.

That’s why any tree work or pruning should only be carried out by qualified professionals, with experience of your type of tree.

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. We work in line with British Standard 3998, the Arboriculture and Forestry Advisory Group (AFAG) guidelines, as well as HSE regulations. Our staff are ISA Cert Arb qualified too.
