Today at Thor's Trees, three of our teams of highly skilled tree surgeons removed a very large dead cedar tree in Barnet, North London. 

It’s unknown to us as to what caused this beautiful giant Cedar to die, although we do know the tree has been dead for over two years. Cedars generally have a high resistance to ill health and are generatly pest and disease free. However, over the last few years Atlas cedars have been affected by severe shoot blight and defoliation. 

 

Thor’s Trees expertly skilled tree surgeons, over a two day period, dismantled and lowered the long lateral limbs, being careful of our clients beloved raised bed of flowering rhododendrons surrounded by a very well kept lawn. Once finished the garden was cleared and cleaned, leaving the garden in the prestige condition it was when we entered the grounds. 

 

As mentioned in our other blogs and posts, the best time of the year to prune coniferous trees is in the autumn and early winter. Cooler weather decreases metabolic activity yet, they have leaves all year round and continue to make food. Remember, pruning should always be done conservatively - Especially if you lack experience.

As we have seen in previous ‘sick tree’ series blogs, moths really can be a nuisance to our tree population – in the case of the oak processionary moth (OPM), they can even be lethal. While nowhere near as damaging to a tree’s health, the horse chestnut leaf-miner can significantly change the appearance of the horse chestnut trees they feed on, and can cause great concern if you see this happening to the trees in your garden. This article should help you to identify this little blighter so you can relax in the knowledge that while the damage they cause may not look great, the harm they do will be minimal.

When you’re selling your home, you want prospective buyers to imagine themselves living there. That’s why the experts have been saying for years that an uncluttered, stylishly furnished property shows well because it gives the visitor an insight into their idealised home. And it’s why the smell of freshly baked bread or cookies can evoke thoughts of domestic bliss. In the same vein, trees in your garden can help your potential buyer to imagine what life would be like living there – having a drink in the shade on a warm summer’s evening or watching the kids climbing and swinging from the wide branches. Trees, healthy trees, can give people a sense of home and that’s what you want a buyer to be thinking when they start talking numbers with your agent.

 We’ve written quite a few articles on the pests that can spell disaster for your garden trees, but the Asian longhorn beetle is a rather worrying menace in the UK, so do look out for it and report it to the Forestry Commission, should you find them in your garden.
