The process of tree felling involves cutting a tree down and causing it to fall over, using either a handsaw or a chainsaw depending on the height, width and weight of the trunk. You should consider felling a tree if it is intrusive or causing damage to surrounding vegetation. Doing this removes any threat it may pose. Diseased trees that do not have any wildlife nesting in them should be dismantled immediately. Typically, we do this using sectional dismantling method if there is not enough open surrounding space for a full tree felling.
When carrying out directional felling we always ensure that the directional notch is in the right place. Furthermore, we make sure that the hinge pushes the tree to fall the right way, so no damage to the surroundings is caused. The tree surgeon carrying out the felling always sees to it that the felling is followed by limbing, bucking or skidding.
This is the process of selectively removing parts of a tree, including branches and buds. The purpose of pruning is to maintain the size of a tree, remove dead branches, or to encourage growth. In late summer it is recommended to prune walnuts and magnolias as this is when they grow the fastest. Cherry (prunus) trees are best pruned in mid-summer, minimisng the risk of contracting silver leaf disease.
When the trees are dormant, we can perform an all-over pruning service. For example, we can reduce the size of all the side branches, encouraging growth of the tree. This occurs as more light can get through and it is less vulnerable to wind damage.
Our pollarding service involves removal of the whole crown, encouraging new growth at the top. Crown lifting allows for mowing and mulching, whereas thinning involves removing a section to allow more sunlight to get through. Before the tree surgeon attempts any of these pruning methods, they always check if the tree has a tree preservation order. In addition, we ensure they are following the correct regulations if it has any attached. Shrubs and hedges are not affected by this legislation.
Although many people attempt to plant trees themselves, hiring the help of a tree surgeon can be a better option for you. We have extensive knowledge of soil, sunlight and drainage quality. Because of this, we can advise you on which type of tree is most suitable for your requirements. Using our knowledge of the best conditions for both native and non-native trees provides you with the ideal tree.
We can plant a variety of trees including rowan, sessile oak, silver birch and sycamore, if they are appropriate for your garden or commercial land. Our team are able to plant semi-mature trees to your property, handling them with care by lifting and nurturing them carefully. We can provide you with advice on prudent aftercare for your trees, to ensure they flourish in their location.
Our tree planting service involves preparing the soil structure for planting by recording the moisture levels and adding organic matter if necessary, and mycorrhizal fungi can be beneficial as it helps the tree grow faster. If there is too much moisture in the soil, we may have to install drainage or plant the tree on a raised mound.
