"RMS Trees are a  professional outfit who were more than happy to provide proof of insurance and qualifications, and very considerate and accomodating towards us, the client. The overall result was a much bigger, light-filled garden with much more scope for landscaping and planting".

Ivy, good or bad ?

Ivy growing on trees can be beneficial to wildlife: it provides cover and protection for nesting birds, insects and bats, as well as providing early autumn pollen and nectar for bees and nutritious berries for birds during the winter. There is no evidence to suggest that it strangles trees or is parasitical in anyway, and it provides evergreen colour during the bleakness of winter.

But it can cause a tree to be more susceptible to windblow because of the perpetual wind resistance it creates, it can cover faults and weaknesses within a tree`s crown and cast dense shade.

Leave ivy if at all possible, or prune it to discourage total coverage of a tree and reduce wind resistance, and if a closer inspection of the tree is required.
