Crown raising involves removing the lower branches of a tree to increase the space under the tree. This is often necessary for access purposes where you need space to pass under or park beneath a tree. Crown raising or ‘crown lifting’ and the trimming of foliage for the remaining branches reduces the weight from a tree which means it may lift up naturally. It also allows more light to pass through.
Crown reduction is an important part of tree maintenance and reduces the shape and size of the tree. Foliage is cut from the outer edge into the crown and cuts are made close to a partnering limb or to a bud to reduce the risk of disease or limbs dying off. Crown reduction reduces the weight of the tree and can prevent dangerous snapping in poor and windy weather conditions. We are happy to make recommendations for the percentage of reduction required. Our priority is ensuring the health of the tree is maintained whilst achieving the best structural and aesthetic results.
This the removal of dead limbs or branches from a tree without which the dead wood is likely to break off or could become dangerous. Removing the dead wood reduces the weight of the tree and therefore the risk of limbs falling or breaking off in storms or high winds. If dead wooding is not carried out then as well as the safety aspect there’s also the risk to the health of the tree. Dead wood can attract pests and disease which can spread to the remaining healthy areas of the tree.
Prior to tree removal we will assess the tree and it’s environment and establish the best method to fell the tree safely and to avoid damage to the surrounding areas. Tree felling may be required where a tree is diseased or damaged and where other pruning techniques are not viable or where a tree is causing damage to surrounding property.
The stumps of felled trees can often get in the way of progress, whether it be to replant another tree or perhaps put up a shed at the end of the garden. Our ‘Predator’ Stump Grinder, is small enough to gain access into most gardens whilst being powerful enough to tackle many of the larger stumps.
Branches can be removed from within the crown of the tree to make it appear less dense.
Hedge maintenance trimming is generally carried out between the spring and summer months. Long standing and established Hedges require trimming to keep them dense and compact. For formal hedges we recommend more frequent trimming than informal hedges. Hedge trimming can be carried out to your exact specifications.
Pollarding is a method of pruning that keeps trees and shrubs smaller than they would naturally grow. It is normally started once a tree or shrub reaches a certain height, and annual pollarding will restrict the plant to that height.
Fruit Tree Pruning
Fruit tree pruning is the cutting and removing of parts of a fruit tree. It covers a number of horticultural techniques that control growth, remove dead or diseased wood, and stimulate the formation of flowers and fruit buds.
