As part of our deadwood removal service, Advanced Tree Services (ATS) can remove dead, dying or diseased wood, broken branches and stubs left from previous tree pruning operations, provided such material exceeds 10mm in diameter or 100mm in length.
We undertake the safe removal and pruning of branches that exhibit dieback and decay, promoted by the natural process of ageing. If those branches have decayed due to disease and/or pest infestation, then the removal of those branches may be applicable and justified for health, safety and sanitation purposes and to prohibit the spread of specific diseases.
In general situations, dead and decaying branches should either be removed fully or shortened if they pose risks to people, property and sites, and affect access. However, it may be viable to consider other management options, such as tree felling, if the rate of deadwood is considerable.
If you have any queries about deadwood removal, get in touch via our contact form or call us on 01483 210066.
