Providing Quality Arboricultural Services
Deciding on the most suitable service may feel somewhat overwhelming when faced with the extensive options available. However, you don’t have to worry when you are unsure of the arboricultural services you need, as our forestry consultant always delight in sharing their expertise. To simplify our arborist and landscaping work, we have described some of our services below.
Tree Felling for Gardens
An integral part of arboriculture, tree felling prevents danger and reduces the risk of falling trees. Essentially the process of downing individual trees, tree felling keeps occupants of any property safe from the threat of dangerous structures.
The term ‘crown’ is used to describe the foliage-bearing portions of a tree. Our crown reduction service involves reducing the height or spread of the crown. Crown reduction may be used to activate mechanical stress on individual branches. Alternatively, it may be used to reduce the effects of shading and light loss on the whole tree.
Different to crown reduction, crown thinning does not alter the overall size or shape of the tree. Instead, it includes the removal of a portion of smaller tertiary branches, which usually sprout at the outer crown. Typically confined to broad-leaved species, crown thinning results in a uniform density of foliage around an even-spaced branch structure.
Crown Lifting, or Crown Raising
A separate service to crown reduction and thinning, crown lifting involves the removal of the tree’s lower branches. It also includes the preparing of lower branches for future removal.
Pruning Your Trees to Perfection
Tree pruning comprises the selective removal of branches. This is to maintain or improve tree health, and shape the tree by controlling or directing growth. Additionally, pruning offers deadwood removal and reduces the risk posed by falling branches.
Pollarding to Encourage Stem Branching
Pollarding is the initial removal of the top of a young tree. This is carried out when the tree is at a prescribed height, and encourages multi-stem branching from that point. Once started, pollarding should be repeated on a recurring basis.
