Following the snow storm in March 2013, trees near roads and property, particularly evergreens, should be checked for cracks, splits and other damage. Partially damaged trees can present a risk of failure without warning and should be checked – this may require an aerial inspection.
Inspection and works to trees should only be done by professionally qualified and insured operatives. Even for removing damaged limbs – there is a right way to prune trees, and wrong ways which may cause the tree to die back or let in pathogens.
