Roots can be unpredictable in their growth patterns and can cause damage to pavements, walls and kerbs. In some cases they can damage underground cables and pipes.
For these reasons it is sometimes necessary to prune the roots of a tree. This work should always be carried out by experienced operators to safeguard the health of the tree, to reduce the risk of insurance claims and for the peace of mind that the work has been completed safely and professionally.
Gristwood and Toms carry out a root pruning service on behalf of Local Authorities and Councils in towns and cities throughout the UK.
