Surrey Tree Surgeons Offer Emergency Service for Trees Affected by UK Storms

Severe weather can have a seriously detrimental impact on trees, wind can blow them down and rain can destabilise root structures.

Midgard Trees offer a range of tree surgery services to clients located throughout Surrey, West Sussex and London. The company offers a range of services such as: crown thinning, hedge trimming, stump grinding, felling, topping & lopping.

Midgard Trees are based in Cobham, Surrey. With more than ten years of tree surgery experience the company can service the whole of the UK but generally covers their local region. One of the company's most popular services in the winter time is tree removal and emergency tree work.

The UK has experienced extreme weather in November and more storms are forcasted to be on the way. This coming weekend the UK is expecting winds of upto 80mph and a months worth of rain in 72 hours. Wales and western parts of the country are expected to see the heaviest rain and strongest winds over the coming weekend.

On their tree removal page Midgard say, “Midgard Trees have been providing clients in Surrey and the surrounding areas with an emergency tree work service for a number of years. Consisting of an emergency call out service, we respond to situations where immediate remedial work is needed such as following a major storm, vehicle damage or when a tree has unexpectedly failed and is a threat to people or property.”

The tree experts say, there can be an emergency involving a tree at any time of year. The coming storms certainly won't help, emergencies are most common when there have been high winds or when rainfall has saturated the ground and eroded the soil around the roots of a tree. Trees covered in ivy are at most risk, “if tree is covered in ivy, it is more likely to suffer significant damage in even moderate gales.” Tree removal is a hazardous and tricky operation which is best left to experts with proper insurance.

Midgard will carry out a risk assessment, in their assessment Midgard will assess the size and position of a tree to decide on the safest way to remove it, the Surrey based tree experts will decide on the best way causing least possible damage to surrounding areas.
