We provide a full scope of arboricultural services including (but not limited to):
There are various forms of pruning works which are the most frequently practiced tree work operations.
This involves an overall reduction in the height and / or spread of the crown. The framework of the crown should remain intact and the overall shape remain similar.
Crown thinning is usually undertaken to allow more light to pass through the crown and to reduce wind sail. It does not alter the overall size or shape of the tree. It involves removing a proportion of small, live branches from throughout the crown to achieve an even density of foliage and well balanced structure.
This involves removing the lowest branches of the tree. It is effective in increasing light transmission t areas close to the tree, or to enable close access to the tree, for example to allow vehicles to flow freely under it without being damaged. The lifted area should be restricted to less than 15% of the live crown height and leave the crown at least 2/3 of the total height of the tree.
Other commonly undertaken activities
This includes part or complete removal of non-living branches or stems. As dead wood provides valuable habitats for wildlife, shortening the dead branches or only removing large deadwood should be considered, dependent upon risk.
This involves the installation of cables, ropes and / or belts (restraints and supports) to reduce the risk of damage due to failure.
When it is necessary to remove trees, it is essential this is undertaken safely and by professionals.
When a tree has been felled, we can use a machine to grind the stump area to below ground level. This is commonly undertaken to minimise the trip hazard in areas where it may pose a risk or allows replanting or construction work to take place. Our fleet of stump grinders enables us to tackle stumps of any size.
