All work carried out will be in line with the BSI standard BS3998. We provide:

Tree Pruning

Image 1
Each tree will be individually considered in relation to the shape, size, character, condition, site and species of tree. All operations will be completed leaving each tree in an acceptable, well-balanced and safe condition.  
Each branch will be removed using the ABC cut method where risk of tearing is reduced. All final cuts will be made at the branch collar, with the branch collar remaining intact. Under no circumstances will any flush cuts be made.

Crown Reduction

Image 1
The reduction of a tree is necessary when the tree has outgrown its environment. A tree can be reduced by anything up to 50%, but the usual amount is 30%. When a tree is reduced the original shape of the tree should be maintained even after pruning.

Reduce back from property

Image 1
Reducing back from property is performed on a tree when it encroaches onto a property. Careful pruning is essential to maintain a healthy shaped tree, whilst avoiding any damage to the property.

Crown Thin

Image 1
The crown thinning of a tree is necessary when the crown has become too dense. The tree will be thinned to minimise the weight of the crown and allow the wind to pass through more easily or to encourage light to penetrate the crown.

Crown Lift

Image 1
The crown lift is necessary when branches hang down too low. The lower branches will be removed to raise the bottom of the tree canopy to anything from 0-5.2m. This allows more light to pass under the crown and prevents obstruction from low branches.

Pollard

The pollarding of a tree is the most drastic form of pruning, but for some species (such as poplar or willow) in the wrong environment, this form of pruning is essential.

Dead-wooding

As the name suggests this procedure is carried out when dead or diseased wood needs removing from the crown of the tree.

Tree Felling

The complete removal of a tree to ground level is carried out either when a tree is dead, dying or diseased, or when it is no longer wanted. The tree will either be felled in one, or in sections, depending on the surrounding area.

Tree Stump removal

Stump removal consists of the complete removal of the stump and any lateral roots of the tree and may be undertaken either using hand tools or a machine (stump grinder). Stump grinding involves the removal of stump to a specified depth, generally between 150m and 300m. Upon completion of stump removal, the remaining hole will be back-filled with soil or grinding waste to leave a level surface.

Hedge Trimming

Hedges can be pruned to any size. Depending on the current size of the hedge, chain saws, hedge trimmers or secateurs may be used.

Planting

Image 1
A hole will be dug that is bigger than the root ball. The tree will be planted into the hole and then backfilled with soil. (When backfilling, the nursery mark of the tree will not be submerged below the soil.) The tree may be staked if necessary. Mulch will be added to the tree pit to minimise water loss and prevent weed growth.

Chippings / Logs

We can supply chippings and logs. Chippings can be used for paths (including bridle paths) and as a method of weed control. Logs can be used for turning and burning.
