Sometimes trees just need a bit of pruning to help keep them healthy, to suit their location or made safe after a storm.
It could be a mature oak that needs a crown clean or a young tree needing to be formaltive pruned. We can advise and carrie out the most suitable practice for your trees.
All pruning work will be carried out to the british standared BS 3998.
Carried out on mature trees, it allows us to make the tree safe whilst retaining the impressive character and wisdom they hold.
We use bracing techniques to reduce the risk of large limbs failing. Bracing prevents the need to crown reduce or pollard a tree wich can have a detrimental effect on the trees health.
Don't worry about the mess, I will remove it all after finishing the job, or if you are planning on using it for fuelling your wood burner we can block it for you.
A survey reports on the current health of the tree. It details any signs of weakness, past or present pests and diseases, fungi, pruning history, storm damage and assesses any enviromental and safety impact. The result of the survey will determine the best course of action and practices are utilised to preserve the health and well being of the tree.
Some trees may be under a Preservation Tree Order (PTO), Planning Order, or within a Consevation Area. These trees require permission from the local council before you are legally allowed to remove or begin work on site.
A tree survey can provide strong support for an application where one of the above orders is applicable.
