So the autumn is finally upon us
So the autumn is finally upon us and after a long summer spent relaxing with the family it is now time at Trencrom to get down to work.
The birds have raised their young (apart from the odd wood pigeon) and as the leaves turn to all shades of orange, yellow and brown the hedgerows are full of berries and nuts for wildlife to stock up on before winter arrives. The hawthorns are virtually glowing red the berry crop is so vast this year.
Autumn and winter are the busiest periods for tree surgery work in Devon and Cornwall. For weeks it seems the weather has been perfect. Blue sky days and chilly nights. As thoughts turn to keeping warm and nights spent in front of the fire, I have just split and delivered our first load of firewood this season. All local wood from trees we have worked on in Devon and Cornwall, hand split, delivered to your door and fully seasoned to keep you cosy this winter.
Autumn is my favourite time of year, and the same is true for fungal fruiting bodies. These can provide a real insight into the health of a tree and whilst some bracket fungi are visible all year ‘round, some only hang around for a short period. We can identify various tree diseases and pests and provide recommendations on how they can affect your tree as well as the best course of action.
As the final leaves are plucked from the branches the trees begin their shut down for the winter. The annual low pressure systems will start to track across the region causing high winds and rainfall, undoubtedly causing damage to trees and woodlands. We are experts in dealing with the tidy up of storm damaged and windblown trees in Devon and Cornwall. When a tree is blown over the common perception is that because the tree is on the ground it is safe to deal with. This is not the case as serious tension and compression forces exist in fallen timber which can cause harm if not dealt with properly. We are qualified to deal with multiple windblown and hung-up trees, and experts in providing a safe solution to any storm damage site. Including any tree felling or crown work you require.
Up and coming jobs include a pine removal which is compromising the draw on a customer’s chimney, some site clearance work and some pruning to some TPO trees to reduce the overhang over gardens. We look forward to a busy autumn. Please get in touch if you require any advice or any tree surgery work in Devon or Cornwall
