Tree Surgeons in Haslemere | How to Maintain Healthy Trees

While you may have wanted to fell a tree at certain points, tree surgeons only perform such drastic work as a last resort. As such, if you have a tree that inconveniences you, it’s highly unlikely a reputable tree surgery company is going to fell it. For that to happen, it must represent a genuine risk to people and property. Common examples include diseased and storm-damaged trees. At K. Shepherd & Son, we serve Haslemere with stump grinding, hedge cutting, firewood sales and much more. With our unrivalled expertise, we can assess the condition of your tree and advise how to return it to good health.


However, your trees don’t need to be in a critical condition for you to learn how to maintain them properly. In fact, adopting good habits drastically reduces your need for tree surgeons in the near future.


For an insight into the quality of our tree surgery services, including stump grinding and hedge cutting, please visit the Portfolio page. As with our firewood deliveries, our company happily visits locations throughout Haslemere and the surrounding areas.


Maintaining Healthy Trees


Watch Where You Dig


Did you know that root systems can extend up to three times as far as the branches? Even if you diligently plan and execute digging or excavation work in your garden, you may still disturb the plant by mistake. The most likely causes of such damage in domestic environments comes in the form of garden landscaping projects and construction work.


Mulch Regularly


By applying shredded bark, wood chips, straw or other biodegradable mulch around your tree’s base, you provide numerous benefits. Chief among these is helping to keep the soil moist. This is especially important during dry periods.


K. Shepherd & Son generates mulching materials during stump grinding, hedge cutting and other tree surgery procedures in and around Haslemere. While our tree surgeons usually use most of this to backfill the hole created, we still have plenty to use at other premises. Please talk to a member of our team to discuss delivery of mulch or our firewood options.


Be Careful While Mowing


If you have a tree in your garden, you must take care while mowing the grass around its base. If you make contact with the bark, you create scratches and gouges that weaken the plant. The same applies if you decide to undertake your own hedge cutting. Much like a cut on the skin, exposed bark poses an increased risk to infection and disease.


If you think your tree has become diseased, please call us on 01483 428956 or 07860 698655. One of our tree surgeons will visit your Haslemere property to undertake an inspection of the tree. We can then recommend the necessary tree surgery services, if any.


Don’t Water Trees Too Much


While trees need water to grow and thrive, you can also over-water them. If repeated, you could cause significant damage. Drenching the soil around a tree can starve it of oxygen. Conversely, you shouldn’t let soil dry out completely, but it’s also worth remembering that most moisture gets stored below the surface.


At K. Shepherd & Son, we provide customer-focused tree surgery services as second nature. Be it hedge cutting, stump grinding or firewood deliveries, our tree surgeons share your passion for protecting and enhancing Haslemere’s natural spaces.
