Reducing the canopy of a tree (or crown reduction) has many benefits:
Manage the height and size of the tree, whilst keeping it's natural shape where possible
Compensate and encourage re-growth in a declining tree
Reduce the effects of shading or light loss
If you'd like to discuss crown reduction for your tree, simply arrange a site visit and we'll talk you through the options.
Is your tree dead, dying, diseased, dangerous or simply in the wrong place?
We're experienced at felling trees, especially large trees growing in areas where they cannot be felled in one section. Instead they require to be dismantled one branch at a time, lowering with ropes or via access platform. This is a complex process that requires highly skilled decision making and good judgement!
As part of this service we can also remove the stump up to 300mm below ground level.
Check out the images below of a large cedar tree being felled and dismantled.
CROWN THINNING &
If you need more light to penetrate through the tree and to decrease its wind resistance, crown thinning is a good option. Crown thinning is a pruning technique where tree branches are selectively thinned in order to reduce the overall density of a trees crown.
Thinning is often performed on trees that:
Are of high amenity value
Are broadleaf species
Have dead wood that is unsightly or a threat to play areas or property
We can easily advise on which option is best for your trees, just drop us a note to arrange a site visit.
