This is a term we use for removing a tree to ground level and is usually done it 2 ways. If there is a lack of space then the tree may need to be dismantled in small pieces via sectional dismantle. The second procedure would be felling the tree from ground level, or sectional felling in large pieces. This can only happen if the tree is in adequate space.
This is a term we use for reducing the tree canopy by an overall percentage. This is generally used when a tree is becoming too big for the surrounding area. Our team will access the tree species and recommend a suitable reducing to maintain the trees appearance and more importantly its health.
This is a term used for dealing with smaller trees and shrubs. Some fruit trees and smaller shrubs need a little more care in how they are cut. Generally they will only be cut in certain times of the year to prevent loss of fruit or flower.
A lot of hedges need a regular cut to make sure that they are kept tidy and healthy. If not cut then certain hedges become hard to maintain. Conifer hedges are a prime example of this, if they become too large they can often be difficult to cut back to an appropriate size.
For a lot of our customers who do not want to lose a tree but are forced to do so through die back and other issues decide to re-plant a new tree in place of the existing one. We can supply and plant high quality shrubs and trees in a suitable location to the customers satisfaction.
Pollarding is a woodland management method of encouraging lateral branches by cutting off a tree stem or minor branches two or three metres above ground level.
The tree is then allowed to regrow after the initial cutting, but once begun, pollarding requires regular maintenance by pruning. This will eventually result in a somewhat expanded (or swollen) top to the tree trunk with multiple new side and top shoots growing from it.
