Reductions & Pruning
Pruning a tree doesn't just reduce the overall size of the crown. With proper pruning, a tree can be made to grow into a certain way to help limbs and branches become structurally safer. Maintaining the tree’s structure helps to reduce the risk of broken limbs and falling branches. Structural pruning can also greatly improve the general look of the tree.
Crown Thinning is important for certain trees as they become very heavy when in leaf or if most of the leaves grow towards the end of the branch. It is also a great tool to improve the look of a tree and allow light to penetrate through the canopy.
Dead wood should always be removed from a safety aspect, be it in your own garden or from a business point of view. Dead wood snaps out without warning and can harm those it lands on. From a tree perspective, it also can help speed up infection and rot if left especially in larger trees.
Crown lifting is the process of removing lower branches to increase the distance between the base of the canopy and the ground. The most common reason for crown lifting is the provision of access for traffic or pedestrians or to allow more light into an area.
Pollarding is a pruning technique in which the upper branches of a tree are removed, promoting a dense isolation of leaf and branches. It has been common in Europe since medieval times and is practised today in urban areas worldwide, primarily to maintain trees at a predetermined height.
We offer stump removal at competitive rates, giving expert advice on the best course of action to be taken on your trees and stumps. Stump grinding isn't always necessary; poison or digging out roots can also be an option but we will always give you the best advice regardless. We use specialist equipment when instructed for stump grinding such as a Cable Avoidance Tool (CAT Scanner) to identify underground cables.
