Dead wood removal

Lifts and cutbacks

Pruning a tree is important. Pruning a tree can influence in what way the tree grows. With proper pruning, a tree can be made to grow into a certain way to help limbs and branches become structurally safer. Maintaining the tree’s structure helps to reduce the risk of broken limbs and falling branches. Structural pruning can also greatly improve the general look of the tree.

Dead wood should always be removed from a safty aspect, be it in your own garden or from a business point of veiw. Dead wood snaps out without warning and can harm those it lands on. From a tree perspective, it also can help speed up infection and rot if left especially in larger trees.

Lifts and cutbacks are again mainly for safty and protection/provention from harm to people, buildings, lights and animal pests.  It can also allow more light to bedding, plants and grass under a tree.



Thinning is important for certain trees as they become very heavy when in leaf or if most of the leaves grow towards the end of the branch.  It is also a great tool to improve the look of a tree and allow light to penetrate through the canopy.

Pollarding is a pruning technique in which the upper branches of a tree are removed, promoting a dense isolation of leaf and branches. It has been common in Europe since medieval times and is practised today in urban areas worldwide, primarily to maintain trees at a predetermined height.
