Not many Tree care companies have the genuine knowledge or experience required to provide the care your trees need. More often than not the scientist forsakes the years of practical tree climbing experience, whilst the tree surgeon delves little into plant health diagnosis.
At provincialtrees.com we want to offer tree care based on recognised academic qualifications and many years of practical application, not proficiency in tree climbing, although we do that as well.
How often in Life have you agreed to terms with a person for a job to be done, only to find a lesser qualified person arriving to do the job...
We all have to learn, you may be tempted to allow others to practice learning their skills with your tree... How useful to the health of your tree are qualifications in the assembly of a chainsaw, or a certificate in business studies if irreversible actions contribute to less than the full growth potential ever being developed.

Concerned about an impeding storm that had been highlighted down the M5 ,we arrived one October morning 2013 to dig out and transport three mature Trachycarpus palm trees from Tiverton, Devon to Heywood near Manchester.
Primary concerns are to find and locate the different services entering the property (possibly through the garden) and to isolate their positions.
C.A.T. detectors are useful for finding conduits carrying Water and Electricity but no use for plastic Gas pipes or Fibre-Optics.
It's always a good idea to hand dig precautionary intercepting trenches across predicted service pathways via visible maintenance points off the highways and pavements.
Once the hardwork is done, the mechanical digger can easily and quickly dig out the rootball carefully under some instruction.
Lifting 2 tonne of tree and rootball needs some protection, and a woollen carpet wrapped a few times around the trunk keeps the nylon sling from damaging the tree.
Positioning the loading with a broad sling and as low as possible to the base yet maintaining an equilibrium for loading on to the truck.
