Pruning, to include height reduction, limb removal, thinning, all round crown reduction, crown lifting. Dismantling - take down for tree removal in confined spaces or with utility wires going through of within close proximity to the tree. Removal/reduction of branches in contact with service lines (with regards to electrical power lines, permission/advice would need to be sort from supplier/owner of wires- disconnection possibly required).
Coppicing, pollarding. All work done to achieve your required end result
while informing of the overall impact to the health and longevity of the tree in question with the work which is wished to be carried out, or when it comes to pruning - the best chance of achieving this, taking into account the tree species and the best times of the year to do so. Some species will actually prefer summer cutting back as opposed to late winter. Please call or email for impartial advice and/or a visit for a quotation.
Sometimes a tree needs to be felled for one reason or another. The main reasons for this are safety concerns (may be dead or dying, structural defects), planning/building requirements or that the tree is taking required light from a certain area.
It is always advisable to consider pruning to achieve your goals before the whole tree is removed (unless deemed unsafe). Dead trees can be reduced to remove unstable branch ends and so make the tree satisfactorily safe (dependent on rigidity and species) while maintaining the structure for desired appearance and natural habitat. Of course sometimes the only solution is to fell the whole tree. We can of course log and split wood where required.
