Tree felling is the forestry term for cutting a tree down, this involves careful consideration, technique and calculation. Dismantling a tree involves climbing and taking apart a tree sectionally.
To reduce the crown of a tree is to reduce its size. It is the cutting back of branches to a growth point further into the crown, thus reducing the shape and size.
Crown thinning does not affect or alter the size or shape of the tree. It is a systematic removal of smaller branches to achieve a number of things including reducing wind resistance or allowing light to pass through more freely.
Crown lifting is the removal of lower primary or secondary branches to raise the height of the canopy (upper layer of the tree). This can allow light into areas immediately under the tree, or simply be a measure to allow vehicles to pass underneath.
We can trim and top hedges of any size and species. This can be done to re-shape the hedge or to promote its growth.
Stumps can often be problematic in many circumstances and can take a significant amount of time to naturally break down. We can poison or grind the stumps out below ground level.
We can source any tree and plant in the correct manner, as well as advising and recommending on the suitability of a particular species in a certain circumstance.
We are available 24-hours a day every day of the week to deal with hazardous or fallen trees.
We work very closely with a local consultancy company in order to offer a service that sees a project through from a survey/ tree report stage through to the final completed works, on a small domestic to large commercial scale. This service covers BS 5837 surveys/ VTA's/ hazard assessments, tree related planning and management, and more. Contact us to see how best we can help you in these stages and ensure the successful management of your trees.
