As a customer it can be useful to have knowledge of the different options available in terms of tree pruning. A good resource for this can be found here: http://www.trees.org.uk/. Our previous Blog post also discussed the importance of taking care of the root system of the tree. This can be even more necessary in a garden that includes a lot of impermeable ground cover.
If possible, applying mulch around the base of the tree as far out as conditions allow will provide many benefits. If this is not possible, having a good watering system can make all the difference. The need can also increase for newly planted trees, or during the drier months of the year. Watering can be done by hand or an automatic watering system can be installed.

Having the right tree in the right place is key to increasing the aesthetic appeal of your garden.
Creating a tree that is an asset rather than an annoyance. A tree planted too close to a building or structure is likely to be the source of much irritation and will need constant pruning, whereas the same tree planted in a suitable location will require minimal maintenance and could be the focal point of the whole garden.
A benefit of having trees in your garden is that research has shown they can increase the value of your property. To increase the maximum potential, is important to ensure the trees are in good condition and in suitable locations. A skilled Arborist will be able to advise on the best management plan for your trees in order to create a space that is a pleasure to spend time in and have your garden looking at its best.
