Just out of curiosity, whilst the team were working on a set of trees close to my house, I asked if it would be... possible to cut 4 thick branches that were overhanging my garden. Without hesitation, the task was safely completed, with the branches being shredded. I am so pleased with this work; it has saved me much time and effort. The team were very polite, efficient and professional. Many thanks for helping me more

Tree Surgery East Devon

Crown Reductions

The basic process of reducing the total size of a tree. The tree is reduced by a specific amount, normally around 30%, whilst retaining or improving the natural shape of the tree.

Pruning points are chosen to ensure that the tree regenerates in a healthy manner and to prevent the ingress of pathogens or unhealthy growing paterns which will cause long term problems.

Pollarding is often used in pedestrian areas or confined spaces, a method to control the general size of a tree.

The technique removes branches at specific heights promoting the growth of new lateral branches. Pollarding will need to be done on a regular basis to contain the new tree size. Pollarding is best done to younger trees.

Tree Removal

Sometimes sadly there is no other option than to completely remove a tree, this can be done in two ways. Firstly if space allows, the quickest and most cost effective way is to simply fell the tree, this however is quite rare. Secondly, the tree will have to be dismantled sectionally. The tree is climbed and dismantled limb by limb, often lowering the waste material with rigging equipment. If the tree is too dangerous to climb the only option is to use Mobile Elevated Work Platforms (MEWP’s) to gain access to the canopy.

Dead Wooding

Dead wood in trees can very very dangerous, especially if the tree is in a public space, or over hangs footpaths or roads. This dead wood is prone to being dislodged in any bad weather with the obvious associated risks. The entire crown is checked and dead wood removed. It should be remembered though, that dead wood is an important habitat for wildlife, and some dead wood if safe to leave has great environmental benefits.
