We offer a full range of tree services including:

tree thinning

Tree thinning: This involves the removal of dead, damaged, and diseased branches, combined with the selective pruning of branches to enable more light and air through the canopy. It can significantly improve the health of your trees and the surrounding garden area.

tree thinning

Crown reductions: This is the reduction of the height and diameter of the crown - the branches, leaves, and other structures that extend from the trunk or main stems of the tree. This is often necessary for safety reasons, to avoid overhead obstructions such as electrical and telecommunications lines, or sometimes it might just be blocking sunlight or a special view.

tree thinning

Formative pruning: Pruning of young trees in this way helps to improve their structure, form and health.
