So we are well into autumn, winter is on the horizon and this means wet weather, windy conditions and difficult ground conditions.

From saturated soils to slippery leaves, the transition into winter brings its own challenges.

As the leaves fall, it does give you chance to check the condition of trunks, bark and branches.

Checking the health of your trees can be difficult at other times of year.

Of course, if your tree is an evergreen, then it will hold onto its leaves throughout the winter.

So if you notice something different, or maybe a branch that doesn’t look safe, get the experts to sort it safely.
