Tree Surgery and Planting
Trees are the most important natural resource in a garden. Trees not only add colour and interest to gardens all year round, but they are vital for our wildlife and the environment. From time to time specimen trees need attention to keep them balanced and healthy. We carry out major tree work, light pruning and crown lifting, as well as preventative measures to ensure that the tree remains healthy and an asset to your garden. This is all covered by our tree surgery and planting services, read on to learn more.
Fruit trees are a marvellous addition to any garden and can even be grown in pots. These trees can help develop the interest of children in natural living things – they can derive great enjoyment from seeing the fruits develop and ripen before they eventually eat them. To get the best from your fruit trees, however, correct pruning at the correct time is essential. Fruit trees can be grown as half standards, full standards, espalier, cordon and fan. All of these require individual pruning techniques. With the correct pruning, increased fruiting and aesthetic shaping can be achieved.
By careful pruning of this large tree (pictured below), we reduced the height by about a third (4 metres). We also lifted the crown and reduced the density of the branches internally to let more light get through the crown to the grass beneath. As you can see we still managed to preserve the general shape and aesthetics of this tree. The customer was very pleased with the results.
At times, it is necessary to fell trees. Our experienced team can remove trees with a minimum amount of fuss. If you are in a conservation area, or a tree has a Tree Preservation Order on it, we can liaise with the council on your behalf and gain the necessary permissions that are required. We will happily come out and assess your trees to advise you on the best course of action.
