When the tree can be felled from the ground. This is only done when space is available but can sometimes be a safer option.
Aerial Sectional Felling
The art of felling a tree in sections within confined spaces using various rigging techniques to remove the sections under constant control.
Reducing the overall size of the canopy of the tree to make it a smaller version of itself. Pruning cuts are critical during this operation to minimise the damage to the tree and promote a healthy recovered canopy.
Removal of selected branches through-out the canopy, to allow more light or wind to pass through the tree.
Crown Cleaning / Dead Wooding
The removal of damaged or dead branches through-out the canopy, this task is incredibly important if your tree has targets below e.g. shed, greenhouse, where a dead or damaged limb could fall causing damage to property or persons.
Once a tree is felled the stump can be removed by specialised machinery, this can allow the area to become more usable.
Hedge Reduction / Trimming
Maintaining hedge height through trimming or reducing the height of overgrown hedges to a more manageable height. Hedge species have different growth patterns and reactions to pruning, so care must be taken when deciding how, when and where to prune.
Hedge cutting can only be undertaken if no nesting birds are being disturbed, otherwise you are in breach of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. Hedge cutting is usually avoided during March to August, but nesting season can extend outside this period.
A thorough inspection is given prior to any work on a hedge.
Conservation Areas and TPO (Tree Preservation Orders)
Any work carried out would only be done if the tree carries no protection orders or the work has prior approval from the local authority that governs said area.
Be very wary of contractors that discard this aspect of tree care, it is a criminal offence to remove a protected tree. It could leave you, the owner of the tree, with a hefty fine.
