Today at Thor’s Trees we pruned back some large fire damaged limbs from this mature Oak tree in Palmers Green, Enfield.

Due to a recent suspected arson attack, Thor’s Trees were commissioned by an insurance company to remove and make safe the damaged tree branches. The property works being completed/built underneath made the task a little tricky, as the building works had already commenced – Although nothing get our teams more exited then a challenge!
Thor’s Trees have years of experience working alongside insurance companies from property related insurance claims; whereby subsidence is apparent and removal is imperative, all the way through to handling reactive claims through which fallen trees need removing due to high winds and storm damage.
By carefully lowering all the branches down over the structure, using professional, state-of-the-art techniques and equipment, we are able to complete the task in an efficient and safe manner with the smallest disruption.
After completing the cutback, our client can now compete the rebuild of the damaged property beneath with the reassurance knowing that any further works to the Oak tree will be of no effect or interruption.

If you’re thinking of extending your home, whether up or out, you may be tempted to make your first call to a local builder or a creative architect to instruct them to get the ball rolling, but STOP, not so fast. If you have trees anywhere near the rear of your house, then there’s another professional that you should call in first or you run the risk of wasting thousands of pounds that could have otherwise been spent making your extension everything you’ve dreamed it could be.

The weather this year has been crazy. First, storms smashed into us with winds gusting up to 90mph, then the cold seemed to linger for months longer than usual, and finally in May we had the hottest bank holiday on record as we all wilted in the blazing sunshine. Such weather can weaken our trees or even be instrumental in bringing them down. Therefore, this Extreme Weather Series of ours aims to help you to prevent the damage weather can do to your trees, or that your trees can do to your property (or someone else’s) in the worst-case scenario.

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.
