Trees with a large canopy also known as a crown can become problematic depending on location or even unsightly a crown reduction could be required. The ends of all branches are reduced, back to suitable “growth points”, which are secondary branches with the “growth point” left being no smaller than a third of the face of the wound left. This encourages healthy growth and minimises dieback. As a result the entire trees crown is reduced in size, aiming for an even shape and a healthy structure. This procedure is usually stipulated in terms of a percentage and will rarely be more than 30%. Certified arborists from Able Tree Experts ensure correct pruning cuts are used at all times promoting the health of your trees whilst creating trees that are evenly shaped and aesthetically pleasing.

Tree crown lifting involves the removal of lower branches with the end result being to evenly lift the height of the base of the crown. Crown lifting can be used to increase the clearance between the ground and the lower branches in order to allow more light to pass through or under the tree. This can be of major benefit to the surrounding environment. A professional arborist from Able Tree Experts will assess the tree and remove the lower branches leaving a natural looking evenly lifted crown.

This method involves pruning a tree’s secondary branches in an even manor, while maintaining its overall size and natural structure. Thinning reduces the density of the tree, which in effect allows more light to pass through the canopy, reduces wind resistance and sail effect of a dense canopy, reduces weight and the possibility of heavily loaded branches snapping in high winds, improves form and reduces growth rate. Thinning is the preferred method to minimize storm damage, however it should be noted that this technique does not alter the overall size. Able Tree Experts provide arborists using specialist thinning techniques providing the best care for your trees and ensuring healthy future growth.

Pollarding is generally the removal of small branches or regrowth leaving larger limbs, over time developing a pollard head or “knuckle” at the tips. Pollarding can be an effective way of preserving trees that haven’t necessarily been planted in the correct place or trees that are struggling to support themselves due to age or decay. A crown retrenchment technique could be used where a staged reduction would be conducted bi-annually bringing the canopy in each time ending in a pollard, thus causing the tree less stress as it has time to heal after each year of pruning, often seen performed on trees in city’s to stunt their growth in overcrowded areas. Able Tree Experts offer advice along with specialist arborists dealing in pollarding and street tree work.

Trees will naturally shed small dead twigs and branches which is normally nothing to be concerned about. However large quantities of deadwood can amass in a tree and this can become hazardous either by being shed or blown out in strong winds. Large dead wood should be removed when a tree is overhanging areas such as roads, Public footpaths, buildings or recreational areas. Able Tree Experts have experienced arborists that will assess the structure of the tree then perform an ariel inspection removing any dead limbs or branches that they believe could prove to be dangerous or unsightly.

When removing a tree or large shrub, a small proportion of the trunk or stem remains in the ground. This is known as the stump. Tree stumps are unsightly, obstructive and can be extremely difficult to remove. Stumps can attract fungus and other wood rotting organisms which can effect other trees and plants in the surrounding area. The most efficient method of stump removal is to use a stump grinder. This machine consists of a large diameter cutting wheel that rotates this is placed onto the stump and lowered progressively tearing away at the fibres “or grinding” until the stump is removed. Able Tree Experts offer a professional stump removal service, using the latest machinery we are able to remove stumps of all sizes and in the most awkward of places.

Hedges are a popular way of creating borders, privacy and dense boundaries but they can grow to become too large, untidy or inconvenient. Regular maintenance is often required to ensure a hedge stays formal and at a manageable size. Whether a regular trimming service is required or a one-off reduction and reshape, Able Tree Experts have professional hedge specialists to produce a hedge to the highest standard.

The complete removal of a tree is sometimes necessary because of conflicting site use or the death or dangerous condition of the subject tree. If space permits this can be accomplished by directional felling, or specialists at Able Tree Experts can control the direction of fall using skilled winching techniques to bring the tree down in a controlled and safe manner avoiding damage to surrounding obstacles.

A section fell is when a tree is being totally removed and cut down to ground level although when a tree is being removed it cannot always be felled. The canopy may have to be dismantled in sections for safety reasons or to avoid property damage. This process involves rope techniques to lower the branches and timber to the ground in a controlled manner. Able Tree Experts are highly experienced in removing large, dangerous and problematic trees in unsuitable positions. We use a variety of the latest recognised methods, To control/lower sections of the tree to prevent damage. Dismantling a tree is an ideal method for trees that are dead, dangerous, storm damaged, overhanging buildings and property, or sites which have difficult access or confined space.
