Tree pruning can be required for a number of different reasons. For instance, overgrown limbs can overcrowd other specimens and make things look informal, block the essential light to other trees, shrubs, plants and even your garden area. Another good reason to prune your tree/trees is to reduce weighty limbs which are susceptible to damage from wind or just weight alone. Minimise damage from high winds and storms by maintaining your trees.
How we carry out tree pruning:
Before any pruning is carried out, our tree surgeons will assess your trees individually and decide the best possible course of action in relation to your tree species, shape, size and condition. Your trees will be pruned efficiently to maintain an even balance and safe condition. All branches will be cut optimally to reduce the risk of tearing and infections.
To avoid damaged to your trees and surrounding areas, we use the latest tree surgery techniques to ensure the safe lowering of large limbs and branches. All pruning will be carried out in a controlled manner by using lowering ropes and or slings where necessary. If your tree has dead, storm damaged or diseased branches they will be cut back to the relevant branch collar.
We will make appropriate cuts to the branch collar and always adhere to the guidelines set out in the BS3998 (British Standards). This will ensure tree health and balance while obtaining the desired overall shape of the tree.
