Thinning is the selective removal of live branches to reduce crown density. The center and left portion of the tree to the right has been thinned. Thinning, of various types, is the most commonly-practiced method of pruning on mature trees in some regions.
Is the removal of lower branches. Crown lifting is carried out to increase the clearance between the ground level and the lower branches either to allow access below the tree, to clear sight lines, improve views or allow light to penetrate to the ground.
Tree crown reduction is the process of removing branch tips, pruning back to a growth point further down the branch. This may be carried out to remove dead, diseased and damaged branches, or simply to reduce the overall size of the tree.
Crown Cleaning/Dead Wooding
Crown cleaning & deadwooding refers to the removal of dying or diseased wood and dead limbs from the crown (upper canopy) of the tree or limbs which cross rub & overly. It also includes attention to snags or re pruning of branch stubs, unwanted climbing plants & debris.
Pollarding is a method of pruning that keeps trees and shrubs smaller than they would naturally grow. It is normally started once a tree or shrub reaches a certain height, and annual pollarding will restrict the plant to that height.
Felling is the process of cutting down individual trees, an element of the task of logging. The person cutting the trees is a feller.
Sectional dismantling is the process of taking down medium to large sized trees a piece at a time. This involves using ropes and spikes to climb the tree, then if needed, the use of ropes to lower the branches to the ground safely in confined spaces.
Stump Grinding & Stump Removal
Stump grinding allows your tree company to perform a safe, efficient, and complete tree stump removal so that you can use the area where the tree once was for a different purpose. Here is a look at the purpose of stump grinders and the overall stump grinding process during a tree stump removal.
Formative Pruning & Fruit Tree Pruning
Formative pruning is the process of shaping a tree when it is young. Every variety has a different natural growth habit, but unpruned fruit trees will for the most part produce a crown cluttered with branches so yielding smaller, lower quality fruit.
Reducing large overgrown hedges. Sometimes hedges are left to do their own thing, often out growing the space intended for them. The species making up a hedge are mainly trees and shrubs and as such want to grow to their mature height.
In general, when pruning informal hedges, remove misplaced shoots and cut back the hedge to its required size. Use secateurs or loppers where practical, especially if the hedge has large evergreen leaves, to avoid unsightly leaf damage.
Correct planting is absolutely critical for tree establishment, so if you are inexperienced with tree planting, we highly recommend you contact us for a quotation.
