Could you have known your tree was going to fall over?

So we have just got over storm Ciara and are slowly clearing a way through the debris, only for storm Dennis on the horizon. With trees blown over at the roots, snapped out branches and stems, could you have predicted the outcome, foreseen the inevitable? I say no, however I believe with a tree condition report this would have highlighted potential failings within your tree.

A tree condition report starts with a thorough inspection of the root plate, buttresses and stem. A good look into the crown, union and scaffold branches, then into the out extremities of the crown. With a trained eye, defects, characteristics and tree body language can be deciphered. With this information we can then decide if any remedial action is required to make the tree potentially safer.

As an owner of a trees (or a tree) that could potentially cause harm or damaged to a person or property, you have a duty of care to make sure that your trees are as safe as possible. Failure to do so could see you end up in court under the charge of negligence. Nobody want that to happen.

Give us a call, let the professionals come and assess your trees and give you that peace of mind.

  • 5 star review  Had my two oak trees and two beech trees cut back as well as some trees/hedging. The Evoke team did a great job - they were professional, polite and friendly. Highly recommend.

  • 5 star review  Evoke Tree Services came to our rescue after a bunch of cowboys ‘rode into town’ to remove our back garden hedge and left the stumps in saying that wasn’t part of the deal. I should have spotted their spurs! Evoke was recommended to us, and they were in and out within the hour, everything done and dusted. Thank you Evoke for first class service. The old saying still stands: ‘Pay cheap, pay twice.’ We know where to go next time. 👍

  • 5 star review  Very pleased with the work carried out on our trees. Evoke were very punctual and very polite and cleared up after themselves. We wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.

  • 5 star review  Would highly recommend this company. They did a great job of tidying my overgrown jungle of a garden. Taking down 5 trees, pruning remaining shrubs and generally tidying up. All of the waste had to come out via my flat and communal corridor and they did so with extreme care and tidied it all up beautifully. A very professional job. They are also very friendly and polite too.
