Felling a tree is the process of cutting down and removing a tree that is problematic, dead, diseased or hazardous. You must obtain a felling licence from the Forestry Commission England to ensure that you are removing the tree for a valid and justified reason, as an attempt to care for the environment and woodland areas of England. Common tree diseases are acute oak decline, chalara dieback of ash, sweet chestnut blight and Dutch elm disease, and we can provide tree management services to inform you if any of your woodland has contracted a disease and advise you on whether to fell your tree, remove certain branches or apply pesticides to it.
For this purpose we carry out section tree felling if a tree is too large and dangerous to fell all at once. We make sure to leave a stump that is not a tripping hazard. When a tree is straight and in an open space away from footpaths and buildings it may be possible to remove the tree as a single unit, using ropes and felling wedges for maximum control and accuracy. Common reasons that you may have to fell a tree are:
- Dead or diseased
- Dangerous to passers-by
- Overgrowing onto train lines or power lines
- You need to create space for the addition of a patio, driveway or home extension
- Roots are spreading and damaging the foundations of a building
- Blocking sunlight reaching your property
- Obstructing your view
- Taking up land required for property development
Tree pruning is the process of removing individual or multiple branches from a tree when they are dead, damaged or obstructive. We can also provide root pruning to control the growth of them or improve the overall stability of the tree.
The main types of branch pruning are crown thinning, crown lifting and crown reduction. Crown thinning is a more minor form of pruning that removes tertiary branches from the outer crown of the tree to create a more even appearance. Additionally, crown lifting removes the branches lower down the tree, closest to the roots, as a method of increasing the amount of light that can penetrate through the branches to the trunk. Crown reduction is the removal of the overall spread and height of the crown, to reduce the size of the tree and decrease the strain on the branches.
Common reasons you may require tree pruning are:
- Branches are dead, damaged, or threatening buildings
- Certain branches are diseased
- Reduce debris and leaves falling in the area
- Improve light access
- Reduce the sail effect of high winds
- Improve the shape of a canopy
Our team are highly experienced in planting all ages of tree, whether they are in the early stages of development or they are semi-mature. The best time of year is winter to plant bare-rooted trees as this is when they are dormant, although we can plant partially grown potted trees all year round. We provide the supply and plantation of hedges, conifer trees, deciduous trees, bamboo plants and shrubbery, if the soil conditions are rich enough in moisture and nutrients to do so.
In addition to creating a good habitat for animals, birds and insects, trees can create be a good aesthetic addition to homes and commercial properties for residents and visitors. Trees are also a positive addition to your home as they filter CO2 out of the environment whilst creating a privacy barrier for your property.
