Tree Survery

Pollarding

Dead & Dangerous

We are qualified to provide a rigorous survey for our customers and their trees in order to establish any causes for concern and to help us give the best advice for tree care. Surveys can be carried out aerially and also at the roots, where fungus is often a give away of a trees health.

Pollarding is a method of pruning that keeps trees and shrubs smaller than they would naturally grow. It is normally started once a tree or shrub reaches a certain height, but can be done to reduce the tree once mature in order to regrow a crown lower down.

We are experts in removing dead or dangerous trees. We can remove in hazardous locations, next to roads or buildings etc. The removals are controlled through precise rigging techniques, ensuring that no damage occurs.

 

Pruning

Pruning is carried out for a number of reasons, mainly tree health or tree aesthetics. We can remove diseased or damaged branches which could compromise the safety of the tree. excess growth can be removed from inside the crown to allow more sunlight and airflow. Overweighted sections of the tree can be lightened to avoid future damage. The crown can be reshaped or reduced to fit surroundings.

Section Felling

This is often used on multi-stem trees where damage or ill health, to a section or stem, is likely to cause safety issues and cannot be mitigated by pruning.  Our climbers  will dismantle these sections using rigging and lowering techniques to avoid damage below. 

Emergency & Roadside

We are available for emergency call outs, no matter the time or day. Please note all emergency work is subject to callout related fees and charges. We are also able to provide tree care for roadside trees, of which, we have numerous options
