The planting of trees is important to many aspects of local ecosystems, whether it's introducing a new specimen tree to a garden or planting a small spinney or woodland.
offer a planting service to satisfy your requirements and meet
as many of your needs as possible. We hold the current qualification for tree
planting and establishment.
The thinning of the tree canopy allows for a greater
penetration of dappled sunlight thought the canopy. This is achieved by
removing equally, the internal and external growth of the canopy. This process
also helps to reduce the wind sail effect of the tree.
Crown Reductions and Shaping
There are a number of reasons why we choose to reduce
the height and spread of a tree canopy. This can be to allow for more
light, reduce the end weight of branches to maintain a safe tree or for
removing lateral branches from boundaries. When this process is carried out it
is important to ensure that the correct procedures are adhered to to ensure the
trees health after any operations is maintained as well as can be. The way this
is carried out is, a percentage or distance is agreed and that distance is
then removed from each individual branch to maintain the overall natural
Felling is the removal of a tree or group of trees. We remove
trees, with the appropriate consent, to allow for more light, space or if a
tree is deemed unsafe. We understand that due to space constraints, felling a
tree can be dangerous so work to the highest safety standards and with extreme
Dismantling a tree may be required when a tree is situated in a
delicate area, for example, if the tree overhangs a greenhouse, garage or a
neighbouring property. This can be carried out by handheld techniques or using
lowering devices and rigging systems. This method may be required when a
controlled decent is essential to protect lawns, shrubbery and nearby
lifting is required when a tree may overhang a public right of way, your own
garden or a neighbouring property. If there are low hanging branches, these
will be removed to an agreed height to ensure there is adequate space below the
tree. For instance, you may need 2m of clearance underneath a tree to access
all areas of your garden. We can then raise the canopy height to suit.
Removal of defective and
This may be known as 'dead wooding' and involves removing any dead
or defective branches from the canopy, which may become unsafe. This
is carried out by accessing the tree by rope and harness and carefully
extracting these branches and any that may be crossing over and touching one
This practice is a management technique which involves cutting a
tree down to ground level and allowing the stump to re-grow. Some species of
trees respond well to this process for example Sycamore, Ash and Willow trees.
Using a mechanical grinder to grind tree stumps to approximately 10 inches below ground level. This method is used either to allow for re-planting of a tree or shrub in replacement or just to remove the stump and allow for a re-use of space.
