CROWN
REDUCTION

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.

TREE FELLING

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 & 

DEAD WOODING

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.

STORM DAMAGE

If high winds or storms have caused a tree or its branches to damage your home/property or pose an immediate threat, it can be a really stressful time. We're here to help.

 

We can easily provide you with a full quotation on the safe removal of the tree or its branches - some insurance providers need this before work is carried out so it's worth checking with them.

We'll quickly work to remove the tree debris that has fallen, as well as checking any of the remaining tree branches to ensure they are safe. 

If you need a quote for storm damage, give us a call on 07982 719 713.
