Dangerous trees, left unattended can be a risk to property and life

If you own or are responsible for managing trees, you are liable for ensuring they are regularly inspected and maintained. Every day a dangerous tree is left unattended increases the risk to property and life. 

We regularly work on behalf of both local authorities and private land and homeowners to keep homes, businesses and people safe from harm while ensuring roads and footpaths are kept clear.

Trees can suffer from a range of threats including physical damage from extreme weather or vandalism to disease caused by fungi and other micro-organisms. Sometimes, the extent of the damage will mean the entire tree will need to be felled or severely reduced. 

In many cases, less drastic action is required. For example, a rotten limb may need removing to protect the tree while reducing the risk of the limb falling and causing damage or injury. Removing deadwood can also improve the appearance of a tree while pruning and reshaping may be all that is needed to protect road users from low hanging branches.

Called these guys when we had a big problem with a large bough of an oak tree in our garden had broken and was dangerously hanging and leaning against another tree. They came out within a couple of hours and dealt with it straight away and at a reasonable cost. Can’t recommend them highly enough

Specialist machinery and techniques

Only trained professionals should ever remove a large tree and even smaller trees can be dangerous if allowed to fall in the wrong direction. If in any doubt, please don’t take the risk and contact Kneebone Trees.

We have access to specialist equipment such as cranes and rigging to access even the hardest to reach trees. We are also trained and experienced in the techniques needed to manage a safe felling or pruning.  Depending on the specific situation, we may use zip lines or ropes to control the descent of potentially lethal branches.
