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...

Over grafting apple trees – new varieties on existing trees!

Yes you can actually grow different varieties of apples on an existing tree! Over grafting simply explained - a must watch! Multiple cultivars of fruits such as apples are sometimes grafted on a single tree. This so-called "family tree" provides more fruit variety for small spaces such as a suburban backyard, and also takes care of the need for pollinators. The drawback is that the gardener must be sufficiently trained to prune them correctly, or one strong variety will usually "take over." also see - apple trees - fruit trees - pruning fruit trees - rootstock selection - trees & shrubs - wild fruit trees Grafting or graftage is a horticultural technique whereby tissues from one plant are inserted into those of another so that the two sets of vascular tissues may join together. This vascular joining is called inosculation. The technique is most commonly used in asexual propagation of commercially grown plants for the horticultural and...

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...
