At Tree Pro Ltd, we take pride in helping our clients maintain their outdoor spaces while ensuring safety and compliance with regulations. Recently, we had the opportunity to work with a client in Wichling, Kent, who had a particularly challenging task at hand. The client’s overgrown hedgerow had caught the attention of the local council, which had ordered them to reduce the height of the trees to ensure safety and prevent potential hazards for the community. This project involved cutting down the trees from their current towering height to a more manageable 5-6 feet, allowing the trunks to regrow at a hedge-friendly height and form a well-maintained, safe, and aesthetically pleasing hedgerow.
The task at hand was not just about aesthetics; it was also about safety. The overgrown hedgerow posed a risk of branches or even entire trees breaking and landing on the road, potentially causing accidents or other hazards. This safety concern was the primary reason the council mandated the height reduction, and our team at Tree Pro Ltd was determined to execute the work efficiently and effectively to address these safety concerns.
The project was both challenging and rewarding. Trimming the trees down to the specified height required skill and precision to ensure that the regrowth would take place in the desired manner. Our experienced team carefully approached the task, taking into account the natural growth patterns of the trees and the necessary adjustments to achieve the council’s requirements. As the photo accompanying this blog shows, we were at the halfway point of the job, with the other half scheduled for completion the following day.
Trimming trees to form a hedgerow is not solely about cutting; it’s also about fostering new growth and ensuring that the trees flourish in their new, safer form. This process involves strategically shaping the trees to promote healthy regrowth and maintenance. Our team’s knowledge of arboriculture and tree care was invaluable in ensuring that the trees would thrive at their new reduced height while continuing to contribute to the beauty of the landscape.
Below are some before and during the project.
The collaborative effort between Tree Pro Ltd and the client was instrumental in the successful execution of this project. Our client’s commitment to meeting the council’s requirements for the safety of the community was commendable, and we were proud to play a part in bringing their vision to life. Together, we turned a potentially hazardous situation into an opportunity to create a beautiful and safe environment for all residents and passersby.
As we wrapped up this project, we reflected on the transformative impact our work can have, not just in enhancing landscapes, but also in promoting safety and positive environmental stewardship. It was a reminder of why we do what we do at Tree Pro Ltd—because we believe in the profound difference we can make through responsible and skilled tree care.
