If your looking for tree surgeon services in Wiltshire, we offer a variety of tree services to suit your needs including….
Crown Reduction is used to reduce the spread and/or the height of the crown of the tree – this can be for either aesthetic reasons or may be carried out to remove dead wood (Stag Horns) at the top of a mature tree.
Crown Thinning is the removal of a percentage of the branch formation without changing the outline of the tree. Crown thins can help to allow more light to pass through a tree, but can also reduce the sail area of vulnerable trees or reduce water uptake. Heavier limbs can be removed during this stage, providing the shape of the tree is not damaged or the tree is left in an unbalanced shape. During this operation, dead, dying diseased, rubbing or crossing limbs/branches can be removed.
Crown Lifting is the removal of the lowest branches of the tree to give a uniform height above ground level, making the ground more accessible to vehicles and pedestrians, as well as bringing more light under the tree. Clearance for vehicles is 5.2 metres (17 feet), and for pedestrians 2.5m (8 feet).. This practice reveals a clear stem which can be more pleasing to the eye.
Dismantling is the controlled removal of a tree where felling is not an option due to surrounding buildings, fences and valuable property. This is where our climbing skill comes in, as heavy limbs will frequently require careful lowering by rope.
Traditional felling techniques are not routinely used at domestic premises as damage to the ground or plants is rarely acceptable. In the case of dangerously heavy leaning trees, a winch will be used to pull the tree into a controlled direction.
