Tree Felling and Removal –

Occasionally a tree will need to be removed completely. This can be for a number of reasons. In the interests of conservation a diseased tree may have to be removed to ensure neighbouring trees do not also become infected. Other reasons to fell a tree will include safety (to people and property) i.e. if a tree is in a state of decay or in a weakened condition, or if the tree is in an unsuitable area affecting planning applications and construction projects. Felling a large tree in a restricted area will normally require the tree to be climbed and dismantled in sections. Other times when space, safety and the trees form and allows, a tree may be felled in the traditional forestry sense of the term, by bringing the tree to ground using practiced methods to ensure a safe, controlled and calculated fell.



Pruning – 

The main reason for pruning trees, are safety health and aesthetics. It can also be used to stimulate fruit and flower growth. Pruning for safety involves removing branches that could fall and cause injury or property damage, trimming branches that interfere with lines of sight on streets or driveways, and removing branches that grow into utility lines. Pruning for health involves removing diseased of insect-infested wood, thinning the crown to increase air flow and reduce some pest problems, and removing crossing and rubbing branches. Pruning can best be used to encourage trees to develop a strong structure and reduce the likelihood of damage during severe weather. Removing broken or damaged limbs encourages wound closure. Branch/Limb Removal Sometimes it is only necessary to remove the odd branch. This could be for a number of reasons – e.g. growing to close to a building, obstructing a driveway, crossing a neighbours boundary, etc.


Crown Reduction, Pruning, Shaping and Lifting – 

Crown reduction pruning is most often used when a tree has grown too large for its permitted space. In the above diagram the blue area of branches would be removed. This method results in a more natural appearance and increases the time before pruning is needed again and minimises stress caused to the tree. Crown reduction can be used to reduce the wind resistance and uptake of water.

Crown thinning is a pruning technique primarily used on hardwood trees. Crown thinning is the selective removal of stems and branches to increase light penetration and air movement throughout the crown of a tree. The intent is to improve a tree’s structure and form while making life uncomfortable for tree pests.


Crown lifting is the removal of selected branches and limbs from the lower part of the trees crown thus lifting the crowns overall height. Depending on the location of the tree, this process is generally performed to ensure vehicles and people can pass safely underneath avoiding accidents and injury. This process can also assist in allowing more light to penetrate through the lower crown.



Dead Wood Removal –

As a tree grows it is natural for some branches to die back. It is advisable to have your tree regularly inspected and cleared of any deadwood. Pollarding This is the practice where a tree is maintained at a specific height. Traditionally trees have been maintained at a height of twenty to thirty feet. A large maturing tree can be kept small when pollard techniques are used. Using this method a trees water uptake can be reduced. Hedge trimming The reduction of height, width and shaping of hedges. Debris Disposal we take pride in doing an excellent clean up job. All brush and debris is taken away and 100% recycled unless requested otherwise. Some clients may prefer us to leave logs on site, either to use as firewood or to help provide a habitat for bugs and beetles which in turn feed the birds, hedgehogs, frogs, newts or other animals you may want to encourage into your garden.



Stump Removal (Stump Grinding) –

Once a tree has been felled to ground level, you may require the stump to also be removed. For this we offer a straight forward stump and root removal service. This procedure involves using a stump grinding machine which will, as the name suggests, grind the stump out of the ground until the stump and root system are destroyed. This is sometimes required if it is intended to re plant in the area the tree once was, or if the stump will be obstructing the building of a new structure such as a shed, fence or a property extension. If the stumps presence is not a concern, we are able to treat the stump to ensure that re growth does not occur.
