Tree removal is a process which can be carried out in a number of ways, the tree can either be:
* straight felled for quick and often safer procedure
* sectional dismantled to avoid ground impact and hazards below
* sectional dismantle and lowering using ropes and pulleys for safe removal usually on roads and areas with various hazards and obstructions.
Tree and shrub pruning
Some of the main reasons for pruning are as follows:
to contain a trees size
promote good foliage
promote fruit on fruit bearing trees
as an alternative to a removal of a tree that’s root systems are causing problems to water systems and foundations on near by housing and fixtures.
Time of year for pruning varies between different species of trees as there are many non native trees within England , we take pruning seriously to allow maximum stimulation of new growth and and general health of tree. On smaller reductions we often prune with hand saws allowing us more precision with cuts made.
Crown Lifting and Thinning
Crown lifting-requires the removal of lower branches and deadwood often shaded out but the upper canopy to allow clearance for walkways / vehicles and general access
Crown thinning is a way of removing crossing branches that can rub and cause open wounds within the trees canopy and allowing light to travel through the crown of the tree.
