Pruning and Shaping
Generally performed on young trees, to enable them to develop into the desired shape and can reduce the need to carry out tree surgery in its maturity.
Crown lifts and crown reductions
The crown in arboriculture terms, is the branches and leaves of the tree.
Often performed on a larger tree that has outgrown its location. This procedure can reduce Wind resistance or the ‘Sail effect’ so reducing the risk of wind damage or uprooting.
Thinning. Deadwooding. Cleaning
Thinning of the tree canopy is achieved by removing smaller, weaker branches and the selective removal of certain branches to create gaps in the canopy allowing light to penetrate and pass through and reducing its overall leaf density. Correct thinning can make the removal of a tree unnecessary. It will also reduce wind resistance as it increases air flow within the tree crown.
Deadwood occurs naturally within trees, as part of a trees defence system. It will eventually fall to the ground creating a risk to people or property.
Cleaning is the removal of unwanted branches, such as those which are rubbing against one another, or dying. Unwanted epicormic growth and invasive climbing plants such as Ivy would also be removed.
Tree Removal. Felling. Dismantling
When a tree needs removing altogether and there isn’t sufficient space around to fell it safely, It is dismantled. Traditionally, this involves the tree being cut into suitable sections and lowered down to the ground under control using ropes and specialist lowering equipment. Once on the ground, staff can carry out additional cutting or chipping.
If a tree isn’t safe or there are several trees in a row to climb, it may be necessary and cost effective to use a mobile working platform. This can be positioned exactly where the climber prefers and small branches can be removed quickly without the same risks.
