Ivy provides an ideal environment for both birds and insects and if possible is best left alone, but it can cause damage when combined with wind/rain/snow due to the increased sail area and/or weight it creates (the tree would also be in a weakened state for this to happen). Generally speaking Ivy doesn’t cause the tree a great deal of concern and would need to be very prolific to become a problem. It can be unsightly covering a tree in a well maintained garden though and we can remove this for you. We can also remove Ivy from the sides of buildings etc.
