Taking care of your trees
The recent long, hot and dry summer will have had an impact on our trees. Trees are often taken for granted but there is a lot of scientific evidence to support the idea that not only do trees communicate with each other they protect other trees in their immediate vicinity, either by supporting them with shelter or providing food through their network of roots.

Trees are often taken for granted but there is a lot of scientific evidence to support the idea that not only do trees communicate with each other they protect other trees in their immediate vicinity, either by supporting them with shelter or providing food through their network of roots.

If you are concerned about the health of your tree you can arrange a free tree inspection with a qualified company such as Kings Tree Care Services Reading.

Didcot and Wantage Tree surgeons
We have over 17 year's experience in dealing with trees in the Reading area, and each year our understanding of the trees has increased dramatically, meaning our level of competence to identify trees that are in danger has also increased. UK Law does require that home and land owners take reasonable care with all their trees, so labelling a fallen tree as 'an act of God' is no longer acceptable.

So, to take 'reasonable care' with your trees, some form of tree inspection system must be undertaken and to cover oneself, against future action the inspection should be recorded.

Kings tree services undertake tree reports that will identify likely risks by undertaking a thorough assessment of the possible harm that could be caused should the tree fail. For example, a tree next to a major road is likely to need a thorough inspection by a qualified person, whereas a tree in a private garden is unlikely to cause so much harm to passers-by.
