Trees are the green Giants that sit on the land we live in. They have numerous qualities that increase our quality of life. They oxygenate the air, getting rid of carbon in our atmosphere and making sure that what we breathe remains healthy. They also look beautiful and improve the aesthetic comfort that surrounds us. Whether or not you are a nature lover, it is hard to ignore how helpful trees can be to the natural World. Therefore when they need removing, there are many things to consider. We will never remove a tree unless there are good reasons for it. Keep on reading to find out what they are.


One of the reasons why you might need a tree removing is because of where it is positioned. Here, we are talking about the roots of the tree and the branches. When the roots extend, particularly towards the foundations of a house, it can cause a big headache financially and in terms of security. Also, if you have branches that are encroaching onto different areas that are not within the clients ownership, the same problems can occur. Other reasons include aesthetic planning, cost effectiveness, and tree illness response.

Long Term and Short Term

When we operate tree services we do so on both a long-term and short-term basis. Tree removal can be done over time in a way that is prepared, particularly in cases where the natural world is at stake or where growth has become a major factor. However in some cases short-term, or even immediate, tree removal is the desired way forward. Here, we’re talking about storm damage, and serious structural threats that are posed by a tree on your land. In both cases we have the team to respond and we are ready and able to give you what you need at any moment that you need it.


Our team of professionals are always on hand to make sure that you get a service that is perfect. We will keep you in the loop at every stage of a tree removal process and we will even advise you on how to look after other trees that you have from that point forward. We have been doing this for long enough to know what works and what doesn’t work, in terms of tree removal, and in terms of customer service as well. So, with us you can expect a great service delivered in a way that will leave a smile on your face at the end of the day. Get in touch as soon as you can and you will not be disappointed with the service that we deliver to you.

Why remove a tree in the first place?

There are many signs that indicate your tree may be infected. The crown dieback, the deep cracks in its bark, misshapen or discoloured leaves and soft crumbly wood can all help you figure out what is going on with your tree. If other signs such as emergence holes emerge throughout the year along with feeding galleries from various unwanted pests.- Also heavy growth of things like fungi, then it’s possible they have infested your tree too!

When you look up to the tree, it’s branches are withered and dead. These broken limbs can cause serious injury if they fall for no reason at all on unsuspecting pedestrians below. If 50% or more of a tree is damaged in any way, whether by fire, lightning strike or windstorm then that part must be removed immediately because there is an even greater risk of death when these pieces come crashing down unexpectedly from above!

It can be difficult to tell whether or not your tree is healthy if it doesn’t look better than its neighbours. For a more accurate assessment, compare the health and vigour of your trees with other nearby trees that may also be dying for one reason or another. If the leaves on those other trees seem healthier than yours do, then there’s an issue and it could be a good idea to call our experts to assess the situation and advise on a way forward.

Evidence of a tree’s roots can be difficult to see. However, as the soil heaves and fungi grow near its base it is clear there are root issues that need immediate attention.

Trees can become weak and unstable due to an internal decay. Branches that are dead or have cracks in them indicate the tree’s weakness, but sometimes it takes a while for these signs of deterioration to show themselves on the outside as well. The effects of this kind of damage will vary depending on which way you’re looking at it; if your neighbour has trees with multiple trunks (also called “leaders”), they may not notice any significant changes until later down the road, when structural issues arise because their structure isn’t strong enough yet from being young.

Some trees are just old and have been through so much that they’re hollow. A tree with a third of its trunk rotted or hollow should be removed for safety reasons, because it’s compromised beyond saving.

The tree is leaning and you know a storm must be coming. Sometimes when it’s windy, the tallest trees are more likely to lean because they’re reaching for the sky like giants. It’s easy to tell if your favourite tree has structural problems by seeing if its branches grow as high on one side of it as they do from other sides – this indicates that there might be something wrong with how water flows through or around parts of them.

You observe sprouts of new growth at the base of the tree. These shoots are known as epicormic and they indicate that this is a stressed out tree, who may need some TLC to rejuvenate.

This tree is a hazard to the electrical grid. It’s growing into power lines and could potentially cause local blackouts in this area if it stays there for too long, so the best option is to have the tree professionally removed by an arborist tree surgeon company in Glasgow.

Trees are a fundamental part of the environment, providing shade and shelter to animals as well as humans. But they can also be hazardous if they grow too close to roofs or other structures due to potential damage that could result from storms such as tornadoes. For example, large trees should at least maintain 20 feet distance away from houses or buildings for safety reasons and often it is necessary especially in areas with extreme weather conditions like hurricanes where there’s an increased risk of tree limb failure because branches will snap off when strong winds hit them more forcefully than usual.

Suspected trees don’t always need to be felled and removed, such as if they are located in woodland areas or away from human life  and man made structures. These trees can serve as home for all kinds of animal life like birds and other wildlife that would otherwise have nowhere else to call home. As mentioned before some tree failures happen very suddenly but most of them could’ve been prevented by proactive measures which is why it’s a good idea now more than ever to check the trees on your property-before the worst of the UK weather and strong winds hits our shores.
