Ripley Case Study – Storm Damaged Cypress, Braced and Reduced in height

Tree Surgeons based in Woking, fully qualified and Insured covering the Ripley and Send area of Surrey.

We were contacted by a customer who had a problem with one of his Cypress Trees.  It was the end tree in a row that was providing a privacy screen at the end of his garden.  The Trees had been hit by high winds and the end tree had moved off vertical.

Losing this tree was not an option, or they would all have to be removed and replaced!

We assessed the leaning tree and it was decided that we were going to instal 2 braces to pull back and hold the tree in place using the adjacent trees to secure.

Once the braces were installed we reduced the height of all of the trees in the row to alleviate the surface area subjected to winds and reduce any chances of further damage.

Please see below photos of the trees before and after.
