Below is the full range of our tree services:

Tree Felling & Tree removal

There are normally a number of valid reasons to fell a tree. Either the tree is diseased, dead or has become dangerous and needs to be removed entirely.

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.

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 fork.

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.
