Tree Surgery Services
  • Formative Pruning

    Contributes significantly to the ultimate shape and size of a tree and may help to avoid the need for more drastic surgery at a later date. This practice is carried out at the trees young age and determines whether it will be feathered or clear stemmed, whether it will have a central leader or be branch headed, and whether the tree will be single or multi-stemmed.
  • Crown Lifting

    This practice includes the removal of the lower branches in order to achieve clearance from the ground for footpaths, roads and buildings.
  • Crown Thinning

    Selected branches are removed to increase light penetration and the movement of air through the crown of the tree. It leaves the overall shape of the tree unchanged and is defined in terms of a percentage (normally between 10% to 30%).
  • Crown Reduction

    Reduction in height and/or spread of the crown (the foliage bearing portions) of a tree by a certain amount in meters. This can increase the structural integrity of the tree.
  • Deadwooding

    This involves the removal of dead branches within the canopy of the tree that would be considered a hazard and a health & safety risk.
  • Ivy Band

    Removal of a band of Ivy from around the base of the trees trunk’s circumference.
  • Pollarding

    The initial removal of the top of a young tree at a prescribed height to encourage multi-stemmed branching from that point, traditionally for fodder, firewood or poles. Once started, it should be repeated on a cyclical basis always retaining the initial pollard point.
  • Felling/Tree Removal

    Removal of a tree via a direct fell or aerial dismantling technique with specialist rigging/lowering equipment to prevent any damage to property being caused.
