Ivy Removal

Ashwood Tree Care have been providing Ivy removal since day one as it often requires the use of ladders and working at height. If well maintained Ivy can look great and add aesthetic value to you home, but due to its fast growing nature Ivy can also cause a lot of damage, and if left to its own devices Ivy can over run gardens, buildings, sheds and fences. Basically, Ivy can be a very destructive climber.

Here are some of the problems that Ivy may cause:
  • Windows, frames and doors can become damaged.
  • Ivy can damage woodwork and paintwork.
  • Ivy can lift roof tiles and battens causing leaks and wood rot.
  • Fascias, soffits and gutters can become damaged.
  • Brickwork and cement beds may become weakened and dislodged.
  • Dense Ivy can cause damp.

We have a full understanding with the problems associated with removing Ivy from buildings and trees. We can identify areas where Ivy removal is urgent and needs to removed to prevent further damage.

Most home insurance policies will cover you for structural damage to your property. However, in the case of Ivy, if the homeowner has allowed the Ivy to grow unhindered, it may constitute grounds for non payment due to negligence leaving you with a bill for £1000's. Ashwood Tree Care will remove and dispose of problem Ivy, leaving damaged areas exposed for treatment.
