What is ARBORICULTURE? Arboriculture meaning, definition & explanation.

What is ARBORICULTURE? What does ARBORICULTURE mean? ARBORICULTURE meaning, definition & explanation.
Arboriculture is the cultivation, management, and study of individual trees, shrubs, vines, and other perennial woody plants.
The science of arboriculture studies how these plants grow and respond to cultural practices and to their environment. The practice of arboriculture includes cultural techniques such as selection, planting, training, fertilization, pest and pathogen control, pruning, shaping, and removal. A person who practices or studies arboriculture can be termed an 'arborist' or an 'arboriculturist'. A 'tree surgeon' is more typically someone who is trained in the physical maintenance and manipulation of trees and therefore more a part of the arboriculture process rather than an arborist. Risk management, legal issues, and aesthetic considerations have come to play prominent roles in the practice of arboriculture. Businesses often need to hire arboriculturists to complete "tree hazard surveys" and generally manage the trees on-site to fulfill occupational safety and health obligations. Arboriculture is primarily focused...

Horse logging & forestry – London Tree Surgeons

Horse logging & forestry.

Horse logging still has a place in the UK where using machinery will damage the woodland. Horse logging is the removal of felled timber using horses. Horse-logging, or snigging, has grown very popular in recent years and for good reason: using horses in woodlands is traditional, eco-friendly and the horses can work in steep conditions where machinery would often get stuck. Horses can get to areas that machinery can’t get into and they work much more quietly than most forestry machinery: they are good neighbours where woodlands are near to housing.
In four days 47 tonnes of timber were hauled.
Various breeds can be used including Ardennes, Suffolk Punches, Belgian Draft horses or Norwegian Fjordhorses: often the horses used are smaller than traditional carthorses as they have to be more agile and able to handle slopes and move around trees. Typically they can work a 6-7 hour day and can remove around 8-10...

Lime tree pleaching London tree surgeons

Lime tree pleaching London tree surgeons - Job Profile

Pleaching or plashing is a technique of interweaving living and dead branches through a hedge for stock control. Trees are planted in lines, the branches are woven together to strengthen and fill any weak spots until the hedge thickens. Branches in close contact may grow together, due to a natural phenomenon called inosculation, a natural graft. Pleach also means weaving of thin, whippy stems of trees to form a basketry effect. [gallery type="columns" size="medium" ids="3117,3118,3119,3120,3121"] Lime trees take well to pleaching and this is a fine example of work in  progress at All Saints Church in Highgate North London.
