Ivy Removal

Ivy Damage to Property & Trees

Uncontrolled Ivy can become a pest, causing damage to property, especially around door and window openings.

If your brickwork is in condition, ivy will not cause any significant damage. However, ivy will exploit any structural faults, leading in deterioration of mortar and brickwork, and possibly causing small fractures to widen into major structural faults. Guttering is also prone to ivy damage.

Ivy does not usually damage trees, but a tree or it's branches, weakened from fungus or insect infection, may be a risk of falling due to the extra weight of the ivy. On rare occasions ivy can cause tree death by choking
