Crown Reduction decreases the volume of the foliage of a tree. As you can see in the picture opposite, the size of the crown is reduced from the outer edge of the tree making the shape of the tree more aesthetically pleasing. However there are more practical reasons; to reduce the stress of the limbs of a tree and to increase the volume of light underneath the crown.
Crown Lifting is carried out to increase the clearance between the lowest hanging branches of a tree and the ground level. This can be carried out for a number of reasons; to increase the line of sight underneath a tree, to allow access underneath the tree and to allow more light to get to the ground level. Lifting clearance should be to a specified height above ground level.
Crown thinning is the selective removal of branches evenly throughout the tree to reduce the density of the tree. However, it does not change the overall size or shape of the tree. Crown thinning is designed to reduce damage that could result from crown resistance to strong winds. This technique can be used to create more light and air throughout the tree.
Removal of Deadwood
Dead branches & limbs can be removed by a process known as Dead Wooding. Branches that overhang public areas and thoroughfares can be especially hazardous and should be dealt with quickly & safely by a licenced professional.
Sometimes when a tree is being removed it cannot always be felled due to safety or access. Where space allows, we take down the canopy in sections. Dismantling a tree is a great method for trees that are dangerous, storm damaged, dead, overhanging buildings and property, or sites which have difficult access or in a confined space.
Tree felling is the complete removal of a tree. Where space allows, the tree is felled in a single section using various techniques to control the direction of fall. We can safely dismantle any tree to ground level.
A well-maintained hedge provides a smart boundary to a garden, however if left unchecked, a hedge soon can lose its shape and may end up casting shade.
With a good pruning schedule you can keep hedges under control without too much effort. Most evergreen formal hedges like to be trimmed two or three times a year whilst they’re actively growing.
Stump removal consists of the complete removal of the stump and any visual lateral roots of the tree and may be undertaken either using either the smaller or larger grinding machine dependent on the size of the stump and access to get to it.
Tree Bracing Systems
Trees experience many kinds of weather patterns in their life time and will grow in a wide variety of conditions, these environmental factors will influence the way that they respond. As trees mature limbs can become prone to weather damage from high winds, more so if they have not developed strong enough unions.
A Tree Report is both an assessment and analysis of the health and safety of trees. It provides recommendations for the care, maintenance and management of trees on your property.
