Tree Reshaping and Pruning Tips

It is not always necessary to completely remove a tree. It may be the case that once it has been successfully pruned and re-shaped that it will be much more appropriately sized. Not every over-grown tree needs to be taken down, so reshaping and pruning is a cost-effective and viable option for many problematic trees.

Tree reshaping Stockport

Please note; if trees are suffering from disease or, are in fact dying, that pruning and re-shaping is not advised. We are happy to discuss all elements of the job with you prior to work commencing. It may be that we have some valuable advice for you that could save or elongate the lifespan of your beautiful trees. Feel free to ask us as many questions as you like; we are passionate about looking after trees and helping our clients to get the most from them.

It is a true fact that pruning, and reshaping is often overlooked. Maintenance of trees while they grow can be really beneficial to their overall growth. Did you know that it can even reduce the need for large-scale pruning in the future?

Tree Reshaping Tips:

Here’s a few tips that you may find useful:

  • Did you know that the frequency and extent of pruning required can be dictated by location?
  • Consider the following re-shaping services; crown reduction, crown thinning and crown lifting.
  • Don’t try to take on huge projects on your own; reshaping large trees can be hazardous and safety should always be put first.
  • Consider a longer-term solution. This is really important when planning ahead as a solution that may best suit right now, may not be the best long-term solution.
  • It is sometimes wise to consider if you have more than one problematic tree. A project that deals with a number of problematic trees or shrubs may work out to be cost-effective for you.

There may be a few different reasons as to why a tree may need felling; these may include the fact that it has died, is dying or has become dangerous. In any of these circumstances, it is pivotal that caution is used when tree felling.

We have formulated the following four-step guide for felling a tree, however, our best advice is to be careful and never push the boundaries of safety.

Here’s our 4-step Guide to Tree Felling:

  1. The first cut is a horizontal cut, this should be a third the width of the tree.
  2. The second cut is a wedge cut, which should meet the horizontal cut. From this, a piece of wood should drop out which resembles a segment of orange. This will determine the direction the tree will fall in.
  3. The third cut is to the back of the ‘V’ of the wedge cut. Make sure you leave a substantial piece of holding wood (the hinge) of which the tree will pivot and fall. Important: this is determined by the size of tree you are felling.
  4. When the tree starts to fall use your escape route to the safe area. This should be pre-planned and discussed in detail with any other individuals helping to complete the task.

It is highly likely that after reading the above information that you may be feeling overwhelmed. This does depend on the size of the tree, but if you are looking for further advice please call today on 07855 859983.

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.
