Some services we provide:
Crown Reductions, Shaping, Pruning & Thinning
Each tree will be individually considered in relation to the shape, size, character, condition, site and species of tree. All operations will be completed leaving each tree in an acceptable, well-balanced and safe condition.
All large limbs will be lowered by ropes and slings to avoid damage to the tree and its surroundings. We will ensure that all sections fall to the ground in a controlled manner. Dead, diseased or damaged branches will be pruned back to the corresponding branch collar. In the case of crossed rubbing branches, the branches will be assessed, pruned or removed appropriately, whilst ensuring that a reasonable overall shape is maintained.
Stump removal involves complete removal of the stump and any lateral roots belonging to the tree. This is achieved either using hand tools or a machine (stump grinder). Stump grinding involves the removal of stump to a specified depth. Upon completion of stump removal, the remaining hole will be back-filled with soil or grinding waste to leave a level minimal trace of the work. The complete removal of a tree trunk is a job for and only for a stump grinder, this is a machine with carbine tipped teeth attached to a large rotating wheel with the teeth attached at different angles at sequence all around the wheel. This creates a bread knife affect.
