Are You After Dead Wooding?
Dead wooding is the process of removing dead or dying branches from a tree.
Branches die off for a number of reasons ranging from light deficiency, pests and disease damage to root damage. A dead branch will at some point decay back to the parent stem causing abscission and fall off. This is normally a slow process but can be shortened by high winds and extremities of temperature. Therefore the main reason deadwooding is carried out is for safety reasons. Situations that usually demand such removal would normally be trees that overhang public roads, houses, public areas and gardens this is a potential hazard. If this wood fell and injured a passer-by, their property or vehicle then a compensation claim could be claimed
