Tree Removal

Tree removal is not undertaken lightly, but there are situations which require the removal of trees. 

 

Where necessary, we can fell or dismantle a tree depending on what the most appropriate method is for the particular tree and its surrounding environment.

Crown Lifting

Crown lifting involves the removal of lower branches to increase the distance between the ground and branches. 

We have the experience and tools to complete crown lifting in a range of environments, and can discuss suitable options for your particular circumstance

Fruit Tree Pruning

Pruning fruit tree involves cutting and removing selected parts of the tree to control growth, remove diseased branches, and encourage 

flowers and fruit buds.

 

Pruning fruit trees is very important to its ongoing growth and health, and can help prevent later issues.

Deadwooding

Deadwooding is the process of removing dead branches from a tree.

 

Deadwood can attract pests and diseases so removing it aids the health of the rest of the tree, and reduces the risk of falling dead branches.

Pruning

Landscaped trees commonly require selective and targeted pruning to maintain their structural integrity and aesthetics. 

We ensure that pruning work is carried out considerately to maintain the good health and longevity of tress. 

Crown reduction and reshape

Reducing the size of a tree's canopy can increase light and keep the canopy shape tidy and balanced, improving its overall appearance.   

We carefully cut branch tips back to a growth point which helps ensures

 ongoing health of the tree.  

 

Emergency Tree Work

If you've had a fallen or storm damaged tree we can make the area safe. 

If you think a tree might be likely to cause damage to people or property, we can be on hand to provide advice and carry out any necessary work to ensure the safety of you and your surrounding environment.

Pollarding

Pollarding is a pruning method which controls the size of a tree.

 

Pollarded trees need regular care to maintain their compact structure and shape.

Planning Portal application

Hedge Trimming

Whether your hedges are a garden feature or to provide privacy, we can ensure they are well presented and maintained.  

Crown Cleaning and Thinning

Crown thinning reduces the amount of congested branches in a tree. This helps more light to pass through.

Crown cleaning removes unwanted, rotten, infected, or dead limbs and branches. This process is similar to deadwooding. 

Cabling and Bracing

Cables and brace rods can provide more structural support to branches and stems which are at risk of failing.

We can fit new cables and brace rods, and inspect existing 

supports to ensure appropriate 

maintenance. 

Ivy Removal

We can remove ivy and will ensure no damage is caused during the removal process to any structure that the ivy is attached to.

Tree Inspections

We can inspect the health of your trees and hedges to highlight any noticeable defects.

 

This is done by undertaking a visual assessment, and usually involves climbing into the tree. 

Recycling and waste disposal

 

We take every care to ensure that waste is recycled where possible, or disposed of safely.

 

We work with local farms to reuse wood chip as animal bedding and store larger timber to become seasoned firewood.
