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.

Sorbus aucuparia, commonly called the rowan, is a deciduous tree with a history stretching back thousands of years across the northern hemisphere. In olden times the tree was planted outside homes to ward off witches and evil spirits, but today the rowan is commonly planted along streets and avenues for its aesthetic qualities but also because it’s a relatively low maintenance tree and only grows to around 15 metres. Rowans are happy in gardens, in the wild and especially at altitude where they flourish where others would not.
