Dead wooding – As a tree matures, It will inevitably accumulate deadwood from broken branches and die back.

This method is used for
Amenity: Removing deadwood which is unsightly
Safety: Reducing the risk of falling timber
The health of a tree: This allows the tree to heal more effectively, minimising the chance of infection. This also helps to monitor the health of the tree and spot excessive dieback.

It is advisable to have your tree regularly inspected

Crown thinning –  This involves the removal of inner branches evenly throughout the crown of the tree without changing the trees natural shape.

This method is used for
Light: Allows maximum light penetration through the canopy
Wind: reduces the wind resistance in the canopy (reducing the chances of a tree uprooting)

Crown lifting – This is the process of removing the lower branches from a tree’s canopy. This method can be used to allow more light into gardens and plants beneath a tree. Crown lifting can also benefit the unobstructed passing of vehicles and pedestrians underneath a tree

Crown reduction – This is the process that involves reducing the overall size of a tree’s canopy, ensuring the tree does not outgrow its location. During this operation, deadwood and crossing branches are removed to eliminate the risk of infection and disease.

Cable bracing – This is a process in which two or multiple branches or leaders are supported together using specialist equipment and systems. This is implemented when a tree has weak unions or lengthy limbs which need support to reduce the risk of failure, giving you peace of mind.

Sectional felling and dismantling – This process is used when a tree can’t be felled because of restricted space.
In this situation, a tree will be carefully dismantled using several techniques. Specialist equipment will be used such as rigging, ropes, or cranes to lower each cut section of timber safely to the ground.

Felling – Tree felling is the complete levelling of a tree from ground level. Where space allows, the tree is felled in a single section.
Using various felling techniques to control the direction of fall, with ropes and wedges when needed, this process can be carried out safely.
