Trees will have dead wood as a natural process of their cycle of life, or environmental factors causing a tree to dieback.
Deadwood will become apparent when there is no live growth visible on the affected branches. Over time these dead branches can become hazardous, doing damage to whatever they may fall on.
One of the operations we carry out for clients is “deadwood removal”. This process involves the cutting out of a diameter of wood 2 inches and over. This removes the branches that would otherwise be shed by the tree naturally, resulting in potential damage to property.
