With healthy and safety being our number one priority, our fully qualified and highly experienced tree surgeons are well equipped with modern, well maintained machinery that will take care of your project and property in a professional, efficient and safe conscious manner. During bird nesting season, all trees and hedges are inspected and surveyed by our arborists before any work begins.
CROWN THINNING AND REDUCTION
- Our arborist will remove a selected proportion of secondary and small branch growth throughout the crown, doing so will result in an even density of foliage, balance the tree, allow more light to pass through as well as ease wind resistance. Pruning this way can also be remedial work for the long-term health of more mature trees.
Removal of low hanging, weak or dead branches that are too close to roads or buildings is essential for health and safety reasons, therefore raising the crown will allow access underneath the tree of which were previously hazardous or restricted; it is also an effective way of increasing light to areas close to the tree.
Pruning the upper branches of a tree looks severe, however, it is rejuvenating and encourages vigorous, dense growth and can prolong the trees life. Usually we pollard the majority of trees between late winter and early spring.
- Our arborists will evaluate the risks of each tree on its own merit before commencing any felling operations, with an emphasis on safety, particularly minimising the risk to the property, its surroundings, and the environment.
HEALTH AND SAFETY REPORT
Our visual health and safety inspection is observed from the ground, each tree will be assessed to identify any potential hazardous risks it may pose. Based on the location of the tree and the foot fall we look for the following:
- Fungi on the tree or base
- Included branch
- Storm or wind damage
- Cross branches
- Balance of the tree
- Raised roots
- Most often a stump is removed if its in the way of plants, building works, house extensions, fencing works, etc or if for aesthetic reasons you wish for it to be cleared.
