There’s a very clear difference between the trees that grow in our neighbourhoods and streets and the trees that grow in the wild. If you walk through a forest, you’ll find tree roots, stems and weird branches going in every direction. This is how trees grow in the wild; they just find a way to grow bigger and sometimes, even branches grow roots that reach into the soil for more water and nutrients – sometimes these become new trees as well. This may be pretty cool when it happens in the wild but in urban areas, we have to make sure that our trees grow in a manageable fashion.

The reason why you never see wild trees in urban plantation is because they’re looked after by horticulturists who know how to manage trees. However, since there are so many trees all over the place and since some of them are growing on private property, they might not be getting the attention that they might need. This is when it’s a good idea to hire a tree surgeon Glasgow to come and save your tree by trimming it back into shape.

Sometimes, trees grow branches that are too big for them to manage. Eventually, such a tree will drop the branches it can’t support and since trees have neither eyes nor hearts, these branches can fall and crush something or someone. Other times, their roots and branches start to interfere with the structures of buildings by pushing against them. Since cutting trees is dangerous works and has risks that include property damage if not done correctly, we recommend that you let a tree surgeon Glasgow handle any troublesome tree on your property instead of some local gardener looking for work.
