Crown reduction should not be used to reduce the chances of the tree blowing over in a storm. Crown Thinning is the preferred method to minimize storm damage of an otherwise structurally sound tree.

Crown reduction can be considered when the root system of a large maturing tree has substantial decay making it potentially hazardous or on a tree with a high rating.

The objective is to make cuts so that the foliage is left intact on the outer edge of the new, smaller canopy ideally, pruning cuts should not be evident when you stand back from the tree after pruning.

Each tree will be individually considered in relation to the:

shape, size, character, condition, site and species of tree.

All operations will be completed leaving each tree in an acceptable, well-balanced and safe condition. Each branch will be removed using the ABC cut method where risk of tearing is reduced.

All final cuts will be made at the branch collar, with the branch collar remaining intact. Under no circumstances will any flush cuts be made.

Dead or Damaged Trees Removed.

Section felling will be used in situations where there is a risk of damage occurring to any property or harm to the public. The work consists of the entire removal of the tree, in sections. If a delay between felling and stump removal is to occur, the stump will be left at a minimum height of 1.5 metres.

The straight fell of trees is the removal of trees as a single unit. Straight felling will be limited to such situations that pose no risk of damage to any property or persons whatsoever.

Thinning crowns to let in more light by removing some, usually up to 30 percent, of the branches and concentrating on dead or congested shoots is another strategy.It is very easy to spoil the appearance of the tree so this is best attempted in stages evaluating the effect before removing more.

Lifting the crown by removing lower branches will allow access

for mowing access, space under the tree and enjoying the shades cast by the tree.

Stump removal

Stump removal consists of the complete removal of the stump and any lateral roots of the tree and may be undertaken either using hand tools or a machine (stump grinder)

Stump grinding involves the removal of stump to a specified depth, generally between 150m and 300m. Upon completion of stump removal, the remaining hole will be back-filled with soil or grinding waste to leave a level surface.

Tree felling

Tree Felling, Tree Dismantling is the removal of trees to ground level, and can be carried out at any time of the year except in the presence of roosting bats or nesting birds.

Most trees need to be dismantled when felling for a variety of reasons, such as their location to property & buildings, highways, gardens, and even other trees. This is done with the use of specialist lowering equipment to ensure the safety of the climber, and ground staff, whilst reducing the impact to the working area below.

The tree will then be treated with a translocated herbicide where necessary to prevent re-growth, or if required we can have the stump ground out.
