Tree Pruning Stockport

When trees outgrow their spaces, tree reduction may be the best idea. The best advice available is to tackle this issue sooner rather than later. The longer you leave it, the harder the job will be. You have to consider recovery for the tree so it is important that you don’t do something that will harm the tree.

Overgrown Trees Davenport Park

Why might tree pruning be needed?

There are a range of reasons why a tree may need pruning. It does not just need to be because the tree is oversized. It may be because the tree has dead or diseased branches. So many clients are unaware of the way in which trees can be affected and how they should be cared for.

It is usually best to try and keep tree growth under control with regular pruning. We realise that this may not always be practical. It may be that you move into a property with overgrown trees in the garden. This may mean that you need to be proactive in how best to get the trees cared for.

When should you reduce trees?

You will usually find that tree surgeons advise the best time to prune a tree is in late summer. This is when tree healing is most rapid. There can be complications if you prune a tree at the incorrect time. Getting advice from a time-served professional is by far the best idea.

How to reduce tree size

Depending on the tree involved and the intended effect there are several tree pruning strategies. These may include:

  • An overall trim
  • Pruning when the tree is dormant
  • Pollarding
  • Crown lifting
  • Crown thinning

It is important that you are aware of any preservation orders on any particular tree. It is our job to care about your tree care and how best to approach tree reduction. If you would like to request a quotation, please call us today on 07855859983.

We are local tree surgeons serving both Bramhall and Stockport. We were recently asked to help this client in Davenport Park. It is an area of great heritage.

Tree Surgeons Davenport Park

The park was developed over forty years from the 1890s to the second world war. This meant that the houses were reflected the styles of the Victorian and Edwardian designs. It is an area of great beauty. Alongside this are the mature gardens of these beautiful homes.

We were recently asked to help this client with a few problem trees. As the homes in Davenport Park are steeped with history; so are the trees. There are many, many mature trees throughout the area. This means that assistance is often needed in order to prune trees, reduce trees and other tree work.

Problem Trees Davenport Park

Some large trees block out light. This is not an ideal solution for anyone, and larger trees can become problematic, if left. All elements of the job were discussed prior to us starting. We reduced the tree so that it was a more acceptable size and did not limit the light as much to the surrounding houses. If you are out in the garden and need more sunshine, we could reduce or crown thin your trees for more natural light penetration with no removal needed.

As professional tree surgeons, we offer competitive pricing for our tree work. Please get in touch today to request a quote. We have vast experience in both domestic and commercial tree removal services. If you have questions or would like a no obligation tree surgery quote, please get in contact on 07855859983.

Caring For Mature Trees

We are well into the season where our clients are trying to maintain and keep on top of their gardens. So many of our clients find gardening therapeutic. However, find that their larger mature trees and bushes are difficult to maintain once a certain size. Mature tree care is really quite important.

Think of tree care as an investment. Having a healthy mature tree increases in value throughout its lifetime. How so?

  • It can increase property values
  • It beautifies your homes surroundings
  • Purifies the air
  • And offers energy saving solutions (such as cool from the summer’s sun and protection from a cold winter breeze).

It is important to complete a yearly inspection of your more mature trees.This assesses four elements of tree vitality: new leaf formation, leaf size, twig growth, and absence of crown dieback. This is the gradual death of the upper part of the tree.

As experienced arborists we are able to offer in depth assessments of tree health. Abnormalities found in this process may include:

  • Insect activity
  • Deformed, discoloured, or dead leaves and twigs
  • Disease

At this point we are able to offer information and advice on treatment options. These may include mulching, soil treatment or may, in some cases, require full removal. Although tree removal is a last resort, there are circumstances when it is necessary.

Tree Removal Prestbury

We are able to help decipher whether or not a tree should be removed. Our skillset and equipment allow us to safely and efficiently remove trees.

When may a tree removal be recommended?

  • If a tree is dead or dying
  • If it is considered to be hazardous to its surroundings
  • The tree may be causing an obstruction
  • The tree may be crowding other trees (where pruning may not be sufficient)

Either way we will offer you comprehensive advice and support to ensure the best solution for you. With the correct maintenance and care trees can add aesthetic and economic value to your property. On the other hand, it is important to realise that poorly maintained trees can offer a significant liability. Please contact us for more information about tree care on 07855 859983.

Removing Fallen Trees Wilmslow

We were asked for our help to remove this fallen tree at Newgate Kennels and Cattery Ltd in Wilmslow, Cheshire. Fallen trees can provide many problems and can be dangerous if not tended to quickly.

How to Remove a Fallen Tree

Some might ask the question as to why you need to remove a fallen tree first. As well as it being an eyesore, it can also provide hazards. Further falling can occur, causing injury. It is also more than likely that the fallen tree is providing an obstruction. This means that it needs to be removed and the help of professional tree surgeons is often needed.

Firstly, it is important to ensure that you make the area around the tree safe. A fallen tree really can provide further danger and it is important that this is managed appropriately.

Removing Fallen Trees Cheshire

You then need to start chopping the tree. There are a few considerations that need to be made for this. It is a good idea to start from the top to remove the tree’s branches. You can then work your way down until you have removed all tree branches. The tree trunk can then effectively be divided into manageable sections. Keep in mind that these should narrow as you get further down the trunk and it gets larger.

Once this process is complete; you will need to decide what is happening to the wood. If the wood can be re-used many will store it to use as fire wood. This is not always required or reasonable and so therefore disposal needs to be appropriately planned.

If you choose to keep the wood; make sure to move the pieces to a safe, dry area. Moving the wood can sometimes be problematic so careful planning is best.

If you choose to dispose of the wood; we are able to help grind the chunks into sawdust. This is then taken away for your convenience.
