Tree Pruning

  • Crown lifting: removal of lower branches
  • Crown thinning: general pruning of the whole canopy, often used to increase light levels and reduce shading
  • Crown reduction: reducing the overall height and spread of the tree. This is often used to address structural defects or contain trees were insufficient space exists
  • Re-pollarding: pruning to address weaknesses introduced from old topping points
  • Tree Dismantling: allows the removal of a large tree in a confined space

Tree Removal

  • Removal of dangerous trees or branches
  • Tree dismantle

  • Tree felling: this is a highly skilled technique for causing a tree to fall in a specific direction in a controlled manner, using a series of cuts at the base of the trunk.

  • Site clearance: if a tree needs to be taken down then we can also grind the stump out
