- Dismantling or Felling Trees
Unfortunately, on occasion it is necessary for trees to be removed
for safety reasons, this can range from infection or rot affecting the trees
structural integrity or it's location to neighboring structures like buildings,
highways and services. We plan all such works following the industry guidelines
and standards, using qualified professionals, trained in the latest techniques.
We would always recommend leaving deadwood in trees as it's a
valuable habitat for wildlife but it may be necessary for it to be removed for
safety reasons over pathways, School playgrounds anywhere that people are
likely to be walking, this is often is highlighted in tree safety surveys.
This is done during the early stages of the trees development,
want's the tree has established it's self after planting to help the tree
establish a good structure and shape this can negate the need for more costly
and harmful work in the future.
Crown lifting involves pruning to provide a desired vertical
clearance above ground level, this can be to improve access along a path or
increase light to a building, extensive lifting should be phased over a number
of years so as to aid the tree in it's recovery, lifting of mature trees should
be avoided or minimized.
This is done to reduce the leaf density of a tree by removing
secondary live woody growth to leave a well balanced tree with even growth
throughout, often used to increase light levels and defined as a percentage of
the whole canopy but is not recommended for reducing loading on a branch or
Some times it may be necessary to reduce the crown of a tree for
various reasons be it appearance, size or health, this is done by re-shaping
the height and or spread of the crown, aiming to maintain the framework of the
crown and therefore a high proportion of the foliage-bearing structure as set
out in the British Standard for tree work BS3998 not all species or individual
trees are suitable for a reduction, it's important that any work is clearly explained in the job
specification, giving a clear and accurate description
- Crown Restoration
All tree work is carried out to British Standard BS3998.
