Tree Surgeons in Hounslow, London, TW3
During this time of the virus outbreak The Tree Company would wish to remind our clients we are still open for business and that our works are external, therefore with appropriate distancing we have little capacity for transmission of the virus. We have set in place plans to attend sites with avoidance of contact and any communication pertaining to jobs can be undertaken over the phone or by email including payment, which can be made by card or transfer. If you are concerned about our estimators coming to your property, we can quote via Facetime or Skype or by visiting via side access.
The only exception being jobs where our staff would need to go through a client’s house due to access restrictions, in these instances we will call in advance to discuss mitigating risk of spreading by rescheduling the job or looking at specific methodology. We are following and monitoring all government guidelines pertaining to this outbreak.

Last winter The Tree Company pruned an old Acer capadocicum for one of our longest standing clients. Our client’s home is located right on the banks of the river Thames in southwest London and boasts a lovely collection of trees. We have enjoyed being their preferred tree surgeons for over 15 years, and it means we have got to know their trees very well.
The Acer is a great specimen and is fully-grown. Over the years we have thinned out the middle of the tree to allow light to the lawn. Sadly the tree is now getting on a bit and we need to manage its eventual decline.
The best way to do this is to carry out light reductions over a long period of time. So at the beginning of this year we did a 15% crown reduction using only hand tools, the trusty Silky saw and Felco secateurs.
In around 3-5 years time, depending on the response from this year’s reduction, we will carry out a further light reduction.
The aim is to reduce the size of the crown without shocking it too much, and to promote some growth lower down in the crown (which is lacking due to the historic thinning) thus creating a smaller more compact crown which should lead to a longer life for the tree and extended enjoyment for our client.
