Crown Reductions and Crown Thinning

A crown reduction is a procedure where, as the name suggests the crown of the tree is reduced, keeping the natural shape and symmetry of the tree. this helps to reduce the possibility of branches 'snapping out' by reducing the end weight.Crown thinning is where selective branches are removed from within the canopy, allowing more light and wind to filter through the canopy, this makes the tree a lot more 'wind-firm' because the wind filters through the canopy with less risk of snapping branches or worst case scenario, taking the tree over completely.

Tree Pruning

Trees need to be pruned correctly. A well pruned tree is a thing of beauty, balanced and in proportion to its surroundings, with its natural form and shape enhanced. This is not easy to achieve. we take great pride in the quality of our pruning and have a vast experience of pruning trees of all species and sizes. It is an unfortunate fact that bad pruning can be very detrimental to trees , often shortening their lifespan and producing an unsightly and possibly unsafe result. Lopping and topping are terms to describe such unskilled cutting of trees and are not practices that we would ever promote.

Stump Removals

When trees are felled or fall, their stumps should be removed to prevent suckering and fungal root rots. Although often large and heavy, stumps can be removed with the right equipment and technique, or removed by weedkiller. Tree stumps can be physically removed any time. Paying tree surgeons to remove stumps when they are felling the tree is the most convenient way to remove stumps. Chemical stump killers need to be applied to freshly cut wood, so are best applied immediately after felling. Otherwise, they will need to be recut before the product is applied.
