Crown thinning is a pruning technique primarily used on hardwood trees. It is the selective removal of branches to increase light penetration and air movement through the crown. Thinning opens the foliage of a tree and reduces weight on heavy limbs, whilst maintaining the tree’s natural shape.
Removes the lower branches from the bottom of the trees crown in order to allow more light through and provides clearance for pedestrians, vehicles, buildings or line of sight.
Crown reduction pruning is most often used when a tree has grown too large for the space it occupies and reduces the size of the trees crown whilst maintaining its natural shape. This is achieved by pruning back the leaders and branch terminals to lateral branches that are large enough to assume the terminal roles (at least one-third the diameter of the cut stem).
Is the complete removal of all branches from the trunk. A very harsh form of tree surgery to be used with caution and only on appropriate species.
The removal of deadwood, diseased or damaged branches from the crown of the tree and it is intended to reduce the risk of falling branches causing accidents or injury, or if diseased branches threaten the tree’s health.
As a result of death, ill health or the hazardous nature of a tree, including the implication of a tree in building subsidence, removal may be the only option. As many trees are located in an urban environment sectional dismantling may be the only option. In these cases rigging techniques are used in order to prevent damage to any surrounding building or structures.
Emergency Tree Clearance
In the event of damage to a tree or a completely fallen tree, we can attend at short notice to clear the tree and make it safe. Please use the mobile numbers on the Contact Us page. If there is no answer, please leave a message stating you have an emergency and we’ll call you back as soon as possible.
Where trees and vegetation need to be removed prior to development work, we can provide a range of site clearance services, ranging from us just carrying out tree felling or dismantling for you to clear with your own site machinery, right up to full clearance with all vegetation removed from site.
Where trees have been removed, leaving a stump in the ground can be an eyesore or present a trip hazard or vehicle obstruction. We can remove stumps by digging out, or using a grinder for larger stumps.
We will take care of all your pre work requirements i.e. planning applications, free of charge.
