Tree Surgery

We carry out all aspects of tree work:

  • Felling - This is where the tree is cut as close to the ground as possible.
  • Section Felling - This is where the tree is cut in sections and lowered using recognised rigging techniques.
  • Crown lifting - Involves the removal of lower branches to a desired clear height above ground level, either by removing whole branches or by the removal of those parts which extend below the desired clear heights.
  • Crown reduction – Reducing overall crown area by a given amount from the tips of the branches to produce a smaller crown area but retaining natural species shape.
  • Crown thinning - Involves the removal of a proportion of secondary and small, live branch growth from throughout the crown to produce an even density of foliage around a well spaced and balanced branch structure.
  • Crown clean – The removal of dead, dying or diseased wood, stumps of broken branches, unwanted epicormic shoots, climbing plants e.g. ivy and rubbish accumulated in branch forks
  • Pollard - Involves the removal of all limbs back to the main trunk
  • Dead wooding - Refers to the removal of dead wood only
  • Coppice – Cutting back of selected tree species almost to ground level, on a regular cycle normally between 10 to 30 years in length
  • Formative pruning – Pruning a young tree in order to produce a tree which in maturity will be free from major physical weakness. i.e. removal of competing leaders, crossing branches and weak branches.
  • Crown reshaping - Recommended as being a ‘once-only’ operation to make a tree safe or bring it to a desirable condition or shape, over the whole area or part
