Keep Your Trees In Shape
TREE PRUNING KEEPS A BALANCED CROWN
Trees need to be pruned in order to keep them in good shape. Tree pruning or crown thinning is the cutting down of smaller branches within the crown. Secondary branches are removed to give an even density and balanced crown. This will give you even light penetration and less wind resistance. Trimming or pruning of large trees can be problematic if you don’t have the right equipment. However, we are fully qualified and have all the necessary tools to perform the job quickly and effectively.
GET RID OF DEAD WOOD
Dead, dying or dangerous branches need to be removed from trees. This is known as dead wood pruning and it is healthy for the tree to get rid of diseased or dead parts of itself. It can also be a hazard to leave dead branches on a tree so removal is necessary for safety whether it’s in a public park, footpath or your back garden. Larger branches that are stable can be left on to provide a place for birds and insects.
DO YOU NEED POLLARDING?
If trimming isn’t enough and you need to get rid of all leaves and some branches because of disease then pollarding is a great choice. It is heavy crown reduction on deciduous trees. Pollarding is often carried out where the tree is too big for its location or the limbs of the tree are decaying but you want to keep the tree.
