CROWN THINNING

Thinning a tree rather than reducing is for us a preferred tree surgery technique.  As well as removing any potential future hazards such as crossing limbs, it gives the customer the benefit of more light whilst still leaving a beautiful, natural, and healthy looking tree to enjoy.

CROWN REDUCTION

In some cases reducing the overall height and width of a tree is the only option.  We pride ourselves in the quality of our reduction work.  We aim to meet your objectives whilst still leaving your tree looking as natural as possible through careful selection of any branches removed.

DEADWOOD REMOVAL

In the right settings, deadwood on trees provides essential habitat for many insects.  In some cases deadwood is a hazard that needs mitigating.  Removing deadwood from trees also gives the arborist a chance to thoroughly assess the overall condition of your tree during the course of the work.


BRACING & PROPPING

Trees with structural defects and weaknesses can be braced or supported to prevent failure.
We use a selection of different cable bracing materials depending on the circumstances.
When propping limbs our preference is to use natural materials.  Often the branches of the same or similar tree make an excellent option.
