SERVICES

We can offer a wide range of tree work operations to current best practice and industry standards. We have a diversity of experience from construction sites to ecologically sensitive areas and have experience catering for both domestic and commercial clients. Please see below for a full list of competencies.

POLLARDING

is a method of pruning that keeps trees smaller than they would naturally grow.Originally used for coppicing It is now normally started once a tree reaches a certain height, and cyclical pollarding will restrict the growth to that height.

 

WHY

pollarding is beneficial for a wide range of reasons, it is an effective way to reduce the amount of shade cast by trees, it prevents trees from outgrowing their local environment, can reduce the risk of branch failure and can also be necessary for urban environments where trees might hinder neighbouring properties or utility services.

CROWN REDUCTION
A reduction in height & to the overall spread of the crown!
WHY
To make the tree more suited to its immediate environment.
To reduce mechanical stresses on individual branches or the entire tree.
To allow more light into your garden.

CROWN THINNING
A removal of some of the smaller branches within the crown to produce a uniform density throughout!
WHY
This will allow more light through.
This will reduce wind resistance that can lead to branch failure.
This cleans up the crown.

DEAD WOODING
The removal of dead wood from the tree.

WHY?
Dead Wood is dangerous, it can become brittle & fail.It is good practice to reduce the liability of the tree to potentially harming the public or damaging property.

TREE FELLING
A smooth removal of the tree often by rigging & dismantling in small manageable sections!

WHY
The tree is dying/dead &/or dangerous.
The tree is inappropriate size/species for the location.
The structural integrity of the tree has been compromised.

CROWN LIFTING
To increase the amount of clearance between the ground & the lowest branches of the tree.
WHY
To facilitate site access / usage & to clear sight lines.

FORMATIVE PRUNING
To influence the structure of a young tree.

WHY
To help produce a tree that in maturity will be less prone to any major physical weaknesses & complement the desired objectives for its location

SECTIONAL TREE FELLING
The safe dismantling of branches & trees using ropes, pulleys & rigging systems.

WHY
Dismantling and Rigging uses craning points in the tree to lower branches down instead of dropping them. The trunk can also then be lowered down off itself so that the risk of damage to objects under the tree is mitigated.

STORM DAMAGE
Works on trees that have been injured or compromised by stormy weather.

WHY
To make safe.
To help preserve the bio mechanical integrity of the tree

DEAD, DYING AND DANGEROUS

Work carried out on dangerous, dead or dying trees.Usually removal.
WHY
While Dead trees can play an important role in many environments playing host to a number of beasties; more often than not they will be mechanically unsafe for the urban landscape where they interact with us.

STUMP GRINDING/Removal
A grinding out/removal of the stump-usually to a depth of 150mm below ground level but often completely!

WHY
To facilitate building/landscaping works and new use of the area where the stump exists. To remove the decayed stump as it is a trip hazard/inappropriate location/unsightly. To reduce the spread of honey fungus.
