Deadwooding is the process of removing or treating tree branches that are dead, dying or damaged. It is an important part of tree maintenance because it helps prevent infestation and disease and therefore ensures your trees and shrubs have the ability to remain healthy and flourish. 

Deadwooding is essentially a form of pruning and often the branches that need removing can be in hard-to-reach and complicated areas which may be dangerous, so we always recommend that a qualified tree surgeon carries out the work at hand. 

What causes Deadwood?

Deadwood can be caused by a number of different reasons. The most common are:

Why the Removal of Deadwood is Important

As briefly touched upon above, deadwood removal is an essential part of tree care for a number of reasons. Let’s discuss these in more detail:

  • Increased safety – the removal of deadwood is incredibly important for safety. Whether you’re a homeowner with a large tree in your garden or a commercial landowner with a wide range of trees, any dead branches must be removed in order to prevent the risk of one falling and potentially causing a fatal accident. 
  • Prevent pest infestation: deadwood is a breeding ground for all kinds of pests and fungi. In order to prevent this and reduce the chance of other parts of the tree rotting, it’s important to get rid of the unwanted branches as soon as possible.
  • Aesthetics: nothing makes a tree look worse than lots of dead branches. And do you really want that in your garden? Of course not! Removing any dead branches and pruning your tree can transform its entire look of it.

How do you tell if a tree is rotten inside?

The most common signs a tree is rotten inside are: 

  • Damaged, cracked or holes in the bark
  • Crumbling or peeling bark
  • Dead branches
  • Leaf issues such as discolouration
  • Visible fungi growth such as mushrooms
  • Soft sections on the tree

Can a dead tree affect other trees?

Yes, a dead tree can affect other trees. In fact, if a tree is dead due to disease, it’s likely that this can spread to other trees and cause infection. There’s actually a disease called Powdery Mildew, which is highly contagious and can spread from tree to tree. 

If this is the case, you will need to seek help from a qualified arborist to ensure all infected branches have been removed correctly.
