The Merlo Roto

Ash Dieback

Ash dieback is a particular concern at the moment. Ash dieback (Hymenoscyphus fraxineus) is a fungus which originated in Asia but is currently sweeping the UK. It’s most prominent in the South East at the moment but is rapidly spreading throughout the country. It’s thought it will kill around 80% – 95% of ash trees across the UK.

Ash dieback affects ash trees of any age. These are some of the symptoms to look out for:

  • Leaves developing dark patches in the summer
  • Before wilting and turning black
  • Dieback visible in summer
  • Dark brown, diamond shaped lesions appear on the trunk and branches
  • Bark looks browny grey under the lesions


Once Ash dieback reaches an advanced stage the tree becomes unsafe to climb. Thankfully our Merlo Roto allows us to safely dismantle for tree from the ground.

If you think you have an Ash Dieback problem, or have any job that you feel is suitable for the Merlo Roto and Woodcracker, get in touch today for a FREE quote.

The Merlo with Woodcracker is a powerful tool used for Scott Davies Tree Surgery. It is capable of tackling some of the most challenging tree surgery jobs, such as trees with Ash Die Back. Ash Die Back is a fungal disease that affects ash trees, and it can cause branch dieback and eventual tree death. Conventional tree surgery is not suitable for trees with Ash Die Back, as the disease can spread rapidly and cause extensive damage. 

The Merlo with Woodcracker is designed to safely remove infected branches and trees, preventing the spread of the disease. It is equipped with a powerful crane, enabling it to handle even the largest trees with ease. This coupled with its extendable arm, means that it can safely reach branches high in the canopy, giving it the versatility to handle any tree surgery job. 

The Merlo with Woodcracker is an essential tool for Scott Davies Tree Surgery, allowing them to perform jobs safely and effectively that would otherwise be impossible. It is a powerful and versatile tool, and its use in tree surgery provides an invaluable service to the community.

I contacted Scott not realising that he was on holiday. He promised to get back to me when he got back. True to his word he came to assess the job gave me a price and left that with me. I accepted his offer I am so glad that I did. Scott turned up on time and pruned my hedges. He and his team were very professional and polite. I am very pleased with the end result and I would recommend him without hesitation. It is very refreshing in this day and age to get professional firms to commit. Scott ticks all the boxes for me.

100% recommend to anyone looking for tree surgeons. Scott turned up the same day as I called him, gave a very fair quote and fit us in to his already full schedule 4 days later. The 2 guys on the day were very friendly, professional and did a brilliant job, leaving the garden spotless and the trees completely cleared up. Couldn’t fault them in anyway and would use again without hesitation. Thanks guys 👍🏻

Scott and his team are very knowledgeable about all aspects of tree removal and pruning. They will inform you if what you want doing could potentially cause the tree to start leaning and suggest what would be best to do to stop this from happening. His team are all very polite, friendly and professional and are a credit to Scott. We are very pleased with the work they have done for us and would highly recommend them

Start to finish Scott was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Really professional and knowledgeable. He came out to quote quickly, called when he said he would and turned up when he said he would. To make things even better, Scott and the team did an excellent job. Would definitely recommend. Best service I've received in a long time.
