Arboricultural Association Approval

Latest Tree Surgery London News

We have just been approved by the Arboricultural Association following a very intense assessment and full audit of Red Squirrel Tree Surgery.

Its taken us 2 years to get in place everything that is required for the scheme.  Therefore we are all very proud and delighted that we are now fully approved arboricultural contractors.

The Arboricultural Association is recognised worldwide and by the government, allowing us to complete work for councils and other public organisations.

The Life Cycle of a Tree

Like all living things, trees have a finite life.  Some live just a few decades while others may survive for hundreds of years; a few vulnerable specimens can claim to have seen out several millennia.  However, whatever the life expectancy of a tree, it will pass through a series of reasonably well-defined stages.  This is in much the same way other flowering plants do.

A trees life begins when a seed germinates. The first pair of leaves to emerge are simple and they are quite unlike the true leaves of the tree or shrub.  They are derived from the cotyledons that contain the seed’s food store. These first leaves contain chlorophyll and can photosynthesise.  Thus supplying the tiny seedling with its first food made from sunlight energy. 

Tiny seedlings are vulnerable to environmental pressures such as grazing, drought and trampling for example.   Few seedlings make it to the next stage of life.

Great Value for Money.

During their heyday years, native deciduous tree species follow and indeed mirror the four seasons experienced by Britain and Ireland. They are leafless and seemingly lifeless during the winter months. But the sap begins flowing in spring and soon fresh leaves appear followed by flowers. The leaves mature, the fruits form, in summer the foliage losing some of the fresh green colour it had in spring. 

With the approach of autumn, nutrients are withdrawn from the leaves.  This results in colour change and eventually in late autumn they fall covering the ground below as we all see.

In the natural course of events, all tress eventually come to the end of their lives.  Although in the case of Pedunculate Oak and several other native species, this can be after several hundred years of life. However, sooner or later often as the result of disease and damage the tree begins to die back. The appearance of fungal fruiting bodies on the trunk is often a sign that all is not well.  This canshow the process of decline and decay has begun.  

From an ecological perspective there is something life-affirming about this process.  In the absence of man’s intervention, nothing goes to waste.  All the nutrients from the venerable old tree enrich the soil.   This is thanks to insect attack and fungal decay therefore creating ideal conditions for the next generation of trees.

Did you ever wonder what a tree is?

You would never doubt an oak is a tree, but would a juniper of creeping willow, also qualify, or are they merely shrubs?  One feature common to both trees and shrubs is that their stems increase in thickness each year by the laying down of internal layers of wood tissue in the form of concentric rings.  This secondary thickening builds up year by year to increase the diameter of the stem.  This gives a permanent record of the age of the tree or shrub.

Trees are generally considered to have a single main stem of 5m or more in height with a branching crown above this.  Whereas shrubs may have many stems arising at ground level and may not normally reach the height of a tree.

Trees do not belong to a single family of plants, many plant families are represented and some.  Like the Fabaceae, commonly known as the pea, bean or legume family,  and Rosaceae, of the rose family.  Also include many herbaceous plants and shrubs as well as large trees.

Professional Tree Care Services.

The plant kingdom is divided into two main classes, the Gymnosperms and the Angiosperms.  The primitive of these two is the Gymnosperms which means ‘naked seeds’.  This is the ovule is borne on a bract and not includes in a seedpod or case.  This class includes the Maidenhair Tree and all the conifers or cone bearing trees.

Angiosperm means ‘hidden seeds’ and refers to the way the seeds are contained inside an ovary, i.e. a structure that may later develop into a seedpod or fruit.  This large class includes many well-known plant families.  Some of which are mostly made up from herbaceous plants and some of which are mostly composed of trees.  The Lime and Elms, for example are mostly trees whilst trees feature in only one of many genera in the Foxglove family.

You can see from this small article that there is so much to know about trees and shrubs.  Therefore it is vital to get a qualified and experienced tree surgeon to carry out any work you might need.  Whether it is felling, stump removal, pollarding, pruning or tree planting in and around the South and West London area.
