Tree Management Plans

At Coastal Tree Care, our trained arborists are able to provide expert advice about all aspects of tree care. Our Tree Management Plan is at the heart of our approach. We can undertake a visual assessment of your trees, checking for any structural or physiological problems, then make a report with recommendations for any remedial work, and future monitoring arrangements where necessary. The idea is simply to try to prevent some of the catastrophic failures we have seen during recent storm events.

This proactive approach to tree management helps landowners fulfil their ‘Duty of Care’. Why pay over the odds for a reactive call out?  Don’t wait for a diseased tree to fall apart – after all, it’s failure could cause life changing personal injury, death or property damage. Let us help you to look after your living assets, so they are a joy for future generations.

Our Tree Care FAQ

We provide a wide range of arboricultural services to our clients within the Weymouth, Portland and Dorchester areas.

Trees have dynamic, self-optimizing structures that make incremental growth each year. It is essential to have a thorough understanding of their biology and physiology before making any recommendations for remedial work. Any form of pruning is effectively wounding the tree, so it is important to undertake any remedial work at a time of year best-suited to the individual species. Our team of trained arborists are able to offer sound, professional advice.

If you have trees that are affected by Storm Damage, we can help to make them safe. Our team of trained arborists can quickly make your trees safe and deal with the mess, and you can be confident that our team is fully insured.
Crown lifting selectively removes some of the lower branches of a tree’s crown to increase the distance between the base of the canopy and ground level. It opens up the lower area to allow more light through, and is often used when branches obstruct roads or pavements.
We all understand the positive benefits of trees, but there are a number of situations where tree felling is required. Dead or wind-thrown trees can be hazardous, and some simply outgrow their space near buildings or utilities. We provide straightforward, honest advice – give us a call today.
Our Emergency Tree Work services are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Trees are susceptible to fall or fail without warning during turbulent storms and high winds. The result of such failures can have catastrophic effects on people and the surrounding area by causing obstructions to roads, rail tracks, footpaths, or waterways. Our tree care team is always on standby to respond to these emergencies quickly, and get things moving again.

This service is available to both home-owners and public sector bodies like local authorities, parish councils, schools, care homes, hospitals and county councils – essentially any organisation with numbers of trees and constant access requirements.

The objectives of our Emergency Tree Work call out service are:

  1. To respond verbally to your request for assistance, and arrange for a site assessment as soon as practicable;
  2. To conduct a quick but thorough risk assessment before any work is carried out
  3. To arrange for the prompt deployment of all necessary staff and equipment
  4. To resolve the situation as quickly as possible by first making safe the relevant area
  5. To then proceed with the relevant emergency tree work in a timely fashion
  6. At busy times, provision will be made for a later return to the site to provide a thorough clean-up service, and remove all waste appropriately

We undertake a wide range of woodland management services, from selected felling, coppicing, restoring lapsed coppice, scrub clearance, Rhododendron management, tree and hedgerow planting, deer fencing and ivy removal.  Give us a call to arrange a site visit and free initial consultation.

If you wish to lessen the shade caused by a tree, Crown Thinning is sometimes used in preference to a crown reduction, as it is often a cheaper option. Dead, diseased, damaged and overlapping branches are generally removed first, then a number of small, secondary branches are removed.

Crown Reduction describes the process of reducing the overall size of the tree, whilst retaining its main shape.  A small amount of the end growth is removed from the peripheral branches.

Stump grinding and removal are highly specialised tasks, particularly in the vicinity of underground services, and should not be attempted without the right training or equipment. Our tree care team have the right tools, the training and the experience to dispose of your stumps cleanly and efficiently.
Trees in any location may be protected by legislation for a wide variety of reasons; biodiversity, amenity or to avoid unnecessary tree loss. Proposed tree work might also be subject to legislation covering the protection of bats or nesting birds. The penalties are quite severe and those guilty of non-compliance could face several thousands of pounds in fines and replacement/s for both the contractor and property owner.

TPOs are placed on individual trees, groups of trees, and even entire forests and woodlands where the local area benefits from the great aesthetic value of the protected tree/s. Similar statutory protection is afforded to all trees above a certain size (75mm diameter at 1500mm height) inside a conservation area.  The protection covers the whole tree, including the root zone, which may extend many metres beyond the extent of the canopy.

We take our obligations to clients and the environment very seriously, so we are happy to provide advice on the completion of the necessary local authority application forms, or take care of all of the paperwork for you, for a nominal fee of £25. We can also provide a comprehensive, no obligation, written quotation to accompany the application, which will outline the works specified to British Standards 3998:2010 – Recommendations for tree work.
