This is where we try to keep the same shape of the tree and make it smaller.
Advantage of doing this prolongs the tree life with little impact to the trees health.
This is when we remove all growth on the tree to a suitable bare wood structure. Not all trees react well to this treatment. It is also not recommended for mature trees.
Repollarding; This is when the tree has previously been pollarded and we reduce the tree back to the previous cuts.
This is where we remove the tree using the safest technique for the location of the tree.
This is when we use a specialist machine to remove the stump. This is done to clear the are for replanting or to stop the roots getting in the way or building works.
Please contact us if you cannot find an answer to your question.
Our team members have experience and qualifications, and we will all be familiar with correct procedures.
We have all necessary licenses and insurance for all of our works. Some trees have Tree Preservation Orders (TPO) which require special request from the local authority, and we have trusted members of the ARB Association that we work with for those special cases.
British Standard 3998;2010 Recommendation for tree work(s)
This standard gives general recommendations for tree work. It gives guidance on management options for established trees (including soil care and tree felling) and overgrown hedges.
The principles of this standard may also be applied to some shrubs, which can have similar characteristics to trees.
This standard considers the impact of work on an individual tree in relation to neighbouring trees, but does not cover overall management of tree populations.
The need for tree work will sometimes become self-evident to tree owners and site managers in the course of their regular duties. Tree work ideally forms part of a planned programme of management, which includes the successional planting of trees well-suited to their surroundings.
Principles for assessing the potential advantages and disadvantages of various aspects of tree work are stated, where appropriate, in this standard. Where work is required, it is important for clients to be aware of both the advantages and disadvantages before deciding the course of action to follow.
This is a full revision of the standard, which has been updated and expanded to incorporate changes in the law and working practice concerning established trees, especially with regard to:
Safety of people and property
Decision-making criteria for tree work
Wildlife and habitats
This revision also takes account of underlying issues such as tree longevity, value for local amenity, landscape, biodiversity and heritage.
