Tree Stump Removal Stockport

Part of offering the best-available services for tree surgery is having the knowledge of what machinery is most appropriate for different jobs. The other part is having access to these machines as and when they are needed.

That is why Total Tree Services own all of our own equipment. This, combined with a huge range of experience and knowledge about arboriculture means that we complete our work efficiently and safely.

Stump removal StockportWe recently took delivery of our new Bandit stump grinder. These high-powered machines boast a great reputation for delivering exceptional service and results. It is a compact machine which allows use in many settings. Tree stumps aren’t always located in the easiest positions! It also means we are able to get it through side gates comfortably.

Why is stump removal important?

They are unsightly and can be hazardous. Tree stumps generally aren’t attractive; unless they are going to be turned into a feature they can end up becoming a tripping hazard. They can also become a challenge when mowing your lawn.

Stump grinding StockportStumps that are left can decay and attract unwanted insects; after many years insects can take residence in the stump. These may include ants, beetles and termites. In some cases, it has also been known that stumps can harbour disease or fungus. These can sometimes spread to neighbouring plants and kill or damage them.

Some stumps can produce re-growth; some trees that have been cut down can continue to generate sucker growth. This can become a chore to keep on top of both in cost and time. These suckers also absorb nutrients from surrounding plants so, if left to grow, can cause problems for your existing plants.

Crown Reducing Trees in Cheadle Hulme

Today’s Tree Surgery:

Today we were working at a school in Stockport. Our clients felt as though the height of their trees caused a possible hazard. We had visited the school previously to provide them with a quotation to complete the work. This part of the process is always a great opportunity for us to find out more about the required work, but is also an opportunity for our clients to meet us.

What other benefits does this process offer?

  • It allows our clients to meet us and find out more about our Company
  • The process also allows the opportunity for our clients to ask us questions about our services, the process that will be required and ongoing care

Tree Services are wide-ranging and it is really important that the right service is provided. The project must be approached and a plan formed that is specifically tailored to the individual requirements of the job. This will inevitably produce a better finish and will take into account the stresses put on the trees. All of this will ensure that there is no damage caused.

What did we do?

For this particular job we used crown reducing techniques to prevent large branches from being a hazard in the high winds. We managed to get eight out of the ten trees reduced, but because of the heat, we were struggling.

We will be back tomorrow when hopefully it will be a little cooler so we can finish off reducing the last two. We also plan on stump grinding two stumps, and we may even get chance to fell a Conifer.

Did you know?

Tree pruning inflicts a wound on the tree. The size, angle and position of such a cut needs to be carefully considered. It is really important that you are well-informed when completing such work so that the tree’s ability to withstand such trauma is greatly increased.
