Tree Trimming  


We provide the full range of pruning operations for trees. However, there is often confusion over exactly what the various pruning terms mean. We can discuss all of the options with you and recommend the best course of action.

Branch Removal
Where a branches may overhang or be dead, diseased or damaged, we can remove a branch and lower it, if necessary, over any obstacle such as phone or cable wiring in a controlled manner then remove it from site.


Crown Liftingalt increases the clearance of the lower branches of a tree, perhaps to increase the amount of light and space in a garden, or to provide a clear way for a footpath or building. The lower branches are usually completely removed. Work is normally specified in terms of the required distance from the ground to the lowest branches. For example "lift the crown to 4 metres above the ground".

This is the best solution where the tree's crown is simply too large, but it is important to retain a natural tree 'shape'. We reduce the height and spread of the crown by pruning each and every branch back to a suitable union to create a balanced tree shape and outline. The amount by which we reduce the tree is best described as a percentage (for example, "reduce the crown by 20%").

This is one option of tree pruning we don't offer for trees other then crab trees or fruit trees. Unless they are under 20' tall.

 

 


Crown Thinning altThis is often the best solution where a tree has grown too dense and vigorous for a garden or site. We reduce the overall density of the crown by removing dead and crossing branches as well as secondary branches. This leaves the main branch structure of the tree intact and minimizes the amount of vigorous 'regrowth' seen after pruning. The tree retains its natural shape, yet allows far more light through the canopy and onto the ground. We can thin the whole tree crown or just specific areas.
