How are your trees doing? When was the last time you tool a close look at the trees your have? Some people out there simply think there tree is dying of old age. The thing is, your tree won't die of old age. What is generally going to kill your tree off are insects, disease or in some cases by people. There are trees on hour plant that have been known to live 4,000 to 5,000 years.

I am Jim Petrie, a local arborist in FIfe and I hope to share with you here and over on the Ptree Surgery Website why it is so important that you look after the trees you might be responsible for in your garden.

Have checked by how much the tree in your garden is overhanging into your neighbours garden? As long as the trunk of the tree is in your property then it is your responsibility to maintain it and keep it safe. If the tree is straddling both properties known as a boundary tree then the responsibility is that it becomes shared. And so also it is worth noting that in this scenario tree removal has to get the consent of everyone if someone wants to remove it.

If you are unsure about your trees such as their age, or you are questioning whether the trees are under a preservation scheme you can get the help of n arborist to assist in any decision making you might need surrounding a tree that may have been in your garden for a while.
