Tree Surgery for Landlords in London
Making Tree Surgery for Landlords Easy
For a busy landlord needing arboricultural works done on their property, why not get in touch with GraftinGardeners. Our company can save you time and money by liaising directly with your tenants.
We will arrange everything from booking a suitable time with them for the initial assessment, sending you a quotation, finding the right time to carry out the work, to taking instructions and keeping you informed of the progress. All you need to do is let them know we will be contacting them, and we will do the rest.
Landlords in Conservation Areas
If you are in a conservation area, or any of your trees have a preservation order, you will need to apply to the local council first before commencing with any works. This includes pruning/trimming works, removing large branches and even removing it entirely.
It is, in fact, illegal to alter a tree in any way, shape or form if it comes under any of the above categories. You can be subject to hefty fines if any works are carried out without seeking permission first.
How We Handle the Application
If your trees have a protection order, or you are in a conservation area, we can apply and liaise with the local council directly. We will find out on the initial visit whether or not you will require permission and if so will acquire the necessary permits to carry out your proposed works.
This usually takes up to 6 weeks, and we will always keep your tenants informed to bring the works forward if necessary.
Carrying Out the Proposed Works
Once you are happy with your quotation and the agreed works, we will then send a team out on the agreed time and date. As always, our tree surgeons carry out their duties in a highly professional manner. If you have high-value property, we will use lowering ropes and slings to ensure no damage while works are carried out.
If access is limited and through your home, we will lay dust sheets and take out branches in ton bags to minimise mess. All waste will be removed and loaded onto our trucks when works are complete. Any messy areas are tidied and left in the same condition upon arrival for total customer satisfaction.
