Trees are everywhere and almost everybody sees trees every day. So, of course, we all know a lot about them, right? Err.. well, we learn photosynthesis at GCSE and can recognise an oak leaf at a stretch. Some of us know more, and some less. But trees and Arboriculture remain a specialist subject that is a mystery to most, and this confusion has led to the spreading of a lot of false information about trees. In this blog entry, I have highlighted a few of my favourite misconceptions and tried to gently nudge the reader back onto the right path. Further reading encouraged, and questions welcome!!

If you are concerned about a tree on your property we will come to assess the tree and provide advice together with a quote for any necessary works, free of charge.
