Types of Tree Work

Complete Tree Removal/Tree Felling

There are normally a number of valid reasons to fell a tree. Either the tree is diseased, dead or has become dangerous and needs to be removed entirely. Sometimes trees need to be removed to make way for new developments. If space permits this can be accomplished by directional felling. When there is not sufficient space to fell a tree intact, we carry out a controlled 'sectional fell' where the tree is dismantled in sections from the top down. The sectional felling process is undertaken using lowering ropes, pulleys and friction brakes to safely control every stage of the operation

Crown Reduction

A Crown Reduction involves reducing the overall crown/canopy of the tree by a given amount in metres. We would do this by reducing the crown area from the tips of the branches to suitable growth points. This process is determined by the species, location and structural integrity of the tree

Crown Thinning

Crown Thinning involves the removal of secondary and small live branches from throughout the crown to a maximum of 25%. This will increase light levels and reduce wind resistance to leave the tree with an overall balanced branch structure whilst retaining its original size and shape

Crown Lifting

Crown lifting involves the removal of any lower branches that may be causing an obstruction. We do this by either removing whole branches or those parts that extend below the desired heights to provide clearance under the tree

Deadwood Management

Deadwood Management involves the removal of dead, broken, split branches and old stubs when considered a health and safety risk

Formative Pruning

Formative Pruning is minor pruning during the early years of a trees growth to establish the desired form and/or to correct defects or weaknesses that may affect the structure later in life


Pollarding is a tree maintenance technique that can be used to control tree size that involves the removal of all limbs back to the main trunk. The tree is then allowed to re-grow after the initial cutting. Pollarding then requires regular re-pruning every 2 to 5 years
