Sectioning/Sectional Tree Felling
Tree sectioning or section felling is a high risk process in which a tree is situated above high value property and needs to be dismantled with precision. Small errors in this process could potentially cause a lot of damage and be very costly.
Our surgeons are highly skilled in navigating through tight spaces and have carried out section tree felling in very tight situations. Section felled trees will be cut and lowered down from the crown to the ground using modern rigging techniques ensuring no damage is caused. This is a highly skilled operation and requires a professional tree surgeon.
Straight Tree Felling
Straight felling is where a tree is cut from the base and lowered to the ground in a controlled manner. In busy areas such as London this is often impossible for larger trees as considerable space is required.
A straight fell of larger trees is generally carried out in forest work or properties with enough space. For the straight felling of smaller trees this is much easier and can be carried out safely in a lot of gardens and properties. We always use ropes and slings in order to ensure the tree is lowered safely.
Tree Pruning, Trimming and Reducing in London
Our tree surgeons our highly trained and can perform tree pruning, trimming and reductions in London and surrounding areas.
Tree pruning can be necessary for a number of different reasons. Overgrown limbs can overcrowd arrangements and make them look informal and block the essential light to other trees, shrubs, plants and even your garden area. Another good reason to prune trees is to reduce weighty limbs which are susceptible to damage from wind or just weight alone. You can reduce damage from high winds and storms by maintaining your trees. Pruning should only be done with a specific purpose in mind. Every cut is a wound, and every leaf lost is removal of some photosynthesis|photosynthetic potential. Proper pruning can be helpful in many ways, but should always be done with the minimum amount of live tissue removed.
Prior to carrying out any work, we will assess your trees individually and decide the best possible course of action in relation the condition of the tree. Your trees will be pruned efficiently to maintain an equilibrium and optimal safety. All branches will be cut accordingly to reduce the risk of tearing and infections.
To avoid damage to your trees and surrounding areas, we use the latest tree surgery techniques to ensure the safe lowering of large limbs and branches. All pruning will be carried out in a controlled manner by using lowering ropes and or slings where necessary. If your tree has dead, storm damaged or diseased branches they will be cut back to the relevant branch collar.
We will make appropriate cuts to the branch collar and always adhere to the guidelines set out in the BS3998 (British Standards). This will ensure tree health and balance while obtaining the desired overall shape of the tree.
