Oak Tree Resistograph – October 2021

Whatever your requirements, we are happy to help. Call today on 0800 030 6212

Artemis expertise was called in to help clients save a majestic Oak tree suffering from infection. The Oak, around 14m tall and estimated to be 180 years old, had several young and old fungal brackets on the lower section of its trunk indicating internal decay.
The homeowners saw themselves as custodians of the stately tree and were keen to try preserve it if at all possible. 

Our consultant initially went to assess the infection and advise on possible courses of action. He identified the fungi as Eiffel Tower bracket fungus (Pseudoinotus dryadeus) and used our Resistograph microdrill to assess the extent of wood decay in the trunk. 

The investigation discovered that decay is confined mostly to the heartwood of the tree and that decay has most likely progressed very slowly, with pronounced buttress roots at the base of the trunk adapted to compensate for the additional load. 

It was advised that an initial crown reduction, followed by a gradual reduction in the tree’s crown over several years would reduce loading on the trunk and enable the tree to be retained without posing an unacceptable risk of harm. 

The clients were delighted and commissioned Artemis to carry out the work and the old Oak is still standing proud.

A second job was to shape a viburnum, work that Artemis has undertaken several times before. On this occasion the usually first rate work from Artemis fell somewhat short. However, after much effort and reworking a reasonable outcome was reached. I will add though that the two staff members were very personable, which has always been the case on the occasions I have used your company. I will have no hesitation in continuing to use Artemis.

Excelent service from start to finish.We had 23 conifer hedge trees removed and stumps ground out.It took a day & a half to complete by a team of 4,who were very professional and friendly. As we have no side access they carried everything through the kitchen and hallway, without any damage whatsoever. I would not hesitate to recommend or use Artemis again.

To portray the location of this multitrunked conifer tree, it had been planted as an ornament in a rockery yet over the years it had grown to a very large ten trunk tree. It was situated sandwiched tightly between my garage that has a fragile and easily breakable roof, a summerhouse having a flimsy timber roof and the garden timber fence, both also easily damaged. The tree felling gang of two men very carefully cut down the tree trunk by trunk and lowered the cut lengths to ground level without any damage whatsoever to the surrounding obstacles. All the tradesmen who carried out two operations, were very pleasant to deal with and I have nothing but praise for the couple of teams Artemis sent to fell the large conifer and secondly to grind out the trunk to ground level, the guys were all very polite and professional, they were a pleasure to work with as I just made the tea and drinks and provide some beverages for them. I am more than pleased with the work they carefully carried out in my garden, thank you. Many thanks for all of Artemis Tree Services help, I shall have no hesitation to recommend your company for tree work as I may be asked in the future.

The job involved trimming of Leylandiii trees in the rear garden. We obtained a good quote for the work.Artemis attended prompty and work was done to our satisfaction.Only issue was one of protecting our carpets, a wider covering would have been more Appropriate. We would recommend this company.
