Trees need to be cared for as they can become a danger to the public. Old wounds can be a weak point on trees. Trees naturally produce dead wood and certain species are prone to splitting as they mature. All these things can be potential hazards. Trees that are growing near to houses can affect foundations. Branches may interfere with gutters or windows. Many trees mature to a size that is just too big for the size of the garden in which they are situated. There may also be the need to clear sites for development reasons, whilst taking care of those trees that are to be retained. We offer a complete range of specialist tree surgery services that cater to the situations stated above in a sympathetic and professional manner.
Dismantling and felling
When an unsafe tree is a hazard to property or the public we can carefully dismantle the tree in sections.
A more complete reduction of the size of the tree. Reducing the height and/or thinning the crown can relieve the stress on a weak point in a tree. Reduction of a tree’s crown may be necessary to contain the size of a tree in a small space, near buildings, power lines, etc.
The removal of lower branches to clear paths and rods.
The removal of weak, crossing or duplicated branches to allow more light through the crown and to reduce the weight a structurally weak tree has to support.
The removal of dead branches to minimize the risk of branches falling onto buildings, vehicles, or the public.
Land clearance for development work.
The reduction or complete removal of large hedges and trees that grow at a tremendous rate often cause boundary disputes.
