Local Emergency Tree Services

In Hertfordshire and Devon, while trees are integral to the environment, they can pose significant risks under exceptional circumstances. When the worst happens, Waterman Tree Co. is dedicated to offering a prompt and professional emergency tree services in these regions. Our expert team, armed with comprehensive knowledge and advanced technology, prioritises the safety of your property and the surrounding community when responding to situations involving fallen or damaged trees.

No two situations are the same when it comes to a tree emergency, but we’ve definitely seen it all and will be able to act fast when called upon. But how do you know whether your situation is an emergency? Here are some things you should consider:

  • Recent Storms and High Winds: The unpredictable weather in Hertfordshire and Devon respectively often leads to storms and high winds that can weaken or topple trees, creating hazardous situations. Whilst trees may remain standing after a storm, they may be severely weakened and on a timer until they fall.
  • Heavy Snowfall: Whilst trees in this country are quite robust they are still susceptible to the power of snow. During periods of heavy snow, branches can endure high stresses due to the weight put upon them. But every branch has its limit. Damaged or weakened branches are likely to break and fall.
  • Fallen Trees Blocking Access: Fallen trees pose a threat to the public particularly when on or near busy roads. They can also be a major inconvenience on smaller roads and country lanes where the possibility to reroute around a fallen tree is highly inappropriate. Quick removal of a fallen tree is necessary to restore access and convenience.
  • Trees Falling Onto Property: Not only does a fallen tree onto property incur significant and sometimes expensive damage – it can also weaken other trees in the vicinity. Roots systems are much larger than the footprint we see, so when a tree is uprooted, the structural integrity of other trees can also be damaged.
  • Diseased Trees: Not only do diseased trees act as an eyesore, they are a disaster waiting to happen. Dead and decaying branches are just waiting to fall to the ground, and the weakened trunk waits until the next storm before collapsing. Timely intervention is crucial to prevent the uncontrolled fell of a dead tree.

Frequently Asked Questions

What specific safety measures do the tree surgeons take when dealing with fallen trees on properties or public roads?

Tree surgeons typically secure the area to prevent access by the public, use personal protective equipment, and employ techniques that ensure the safe removal of trees without causing further damage to property or the surrounding environment.

How quickly can the emergency team respond to a call in areas like Hertfordshire or Devon?

Response times can vary, but emergency tree service companies often strive to offer rapid response, especially in hazardous situations, with the goal of addressing the issue as swiftly as possible to mitigate risks. 

Are there any preventative services offered to assess and potentially strengthen trees before storms or heavy snowfall?

Many tree service companies provide assessments and preventative maintenance services designed to identify potential risks and take actions, such as pruning or bracing, to strengthen trees against adverse weather conditions.

How does the company determine the cost of emergency tree services, especially in cases of storm damage or fallen trees?

Costs are generally determined based on the complexity of the job, the equipment required, the number of personnel needed, and the urgency of the situation, among other factors.

What steps are taken after removing a hazardous tree to ensure the area is safe and to prevent future issues?

After removal, the area is typically cleared of debris, and an assessment may be conducted to identify and mitigate any further risks, including planting new trees or advising on landscape modifications to prevent future problems.
