These are our Services
I provide a broad range of services to help cater to your every need. I use the latest techniques, modern machinery and equipment to carry out a range of services:
- Crown reductions
- Crown thinning
- Crown lifting
- Tree felling
- Dead wooding
- Tree pollarding
- Storm damage/emergency call outs
- Stump grinding
- Hedge work
- Tree planting
- Site clearances
- Veteran tree management
- Estate and woodland management
The tree crown is reduced by shortening branches, and so changes the overall size and shape of the tree. Reductions are usually carried out all round the outer parts of the crown to maintain a balanced shape, but seldom should it include cutting through the main stem.
Partial reduction may be useful for preventing branches contacting buildings, roofs and guttering.
This reduces the density of the tree's crown without changing the overall shape and size of the tree. Thinning reduces the amount of foliage and allows more light through the canopy or crown.
The amount of thinning proposed should not exceed more than 30% of leaf area.
This means removing lower branches to increase the clearance between the ground and the crown.
- Useful for allowing more light into gardens.
- Prevents low branches obstructing paths, drives etc.
Dismantling a tree is an ideal method for trees that are dead, dangerous, storm damaged, overhanging buildings and property, or sites which have difficult access or confined space. Sectional dismantling is the process of taking down medium to large sized trees a piece at a time. This involves using ropes and spikes to climb the tree, then if needed, the use of ropes to lower the branches to the ground.
Felling is the process of downing individual trees, only considered where plenty of space is available.
Dead wooding is the removal of dead limbs and branches from a tree.
Pollarding is a pruning system in which the upper branches of a tree are removed, promoting a dense head of foliage and branches, primarily to maintain trees at a predetermined height, annual pollarding must be maintained.
