Tree Management

Tree-workWe offer a fully qualified NPTC and LANTRA certified service, all work is carried out to BS3998 standards and we hold £5 million worth of public liability insurance. We make every effort to minimise our impact on the planet in the course of our work and, whenever possible, we use biodegradable oils in our machinery and recycle all waste produced from our operations.

Our teams are skilled in all aspects of tree management. Detailed below are the key operations that form part of good tree management.

 

POLLARDING
Pollarding reduces the overall size and shape of a tree by a given percentage. This is used to keep the tree healthy and also to bring unruly shaped trees into more pleasing shapes. It is not aesthetically pleasing initially and can only be carried out on certain species of tree. This is an extreme type of tree surgery and requires regular upkeep.

CROWN REDUCTION
This reduces the size of a tree and allows more light through to shaded areas.This helps to maintain the form of the tree.

CROWN THINNING
This is the selective removal of branches in order to increase the light and air movement through the crown. Thinning opens the foliage of a tree and reduces weight on heavy limbs without compromising the tree’s natural shape.

CROWN LIFTING
This removes the lower branches from a tree in order to provide clearance for buildings, vehicles and pedestrians.

DEAD WOODING
This is the removal of all dead, deceased and dying branches. It makes the tree more aesthetically pleasing and reduces the risk of dead branches dropping.

FELLING
This is the total removal of a tree – although depending on the species, the tree may grow back unless the stump is treated or removed.

PRECISION DISMANTLING
This is the total removal of a tree within a confined space using lowering equipment where necessary.

STUMP GRINDING
Stumps can be ground down to below ground level using one of our mechanical stump grinders.

We carry out all regulatory procedures including tree preservation order and conservation area checks, and complete all associated paperwork as part of our service.

Our aim is to provide impartial, accurate and reliable advice to help manage your trees; we combine practical tree management skills with in-depth arboricultural knowledge, of the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases.

Tree work operations require a high degree of technical competence, supported by training and experience, which is why we ensure all of our teams are highly trained and competent to deliver the highest standards of work with the minimum of disruption.
