Dangerous Tree Removal Stockport

We offer dangerous tree removal services for Stockport and throughout Cheshire. This beautiful tree had been condemned by the local council. This meant that it had to be taken down. Dangerous trees can offer many problems and if not dealt with can easily cause damage to property and people.

Why would a tree be classed as dangerous?

There are different signs of diseased or dying trees. These come in the form of bark abnormalities, decay, dead branches and even leaf discolouration. In this case there was clear deep cracks and decay.

Did you know that responsibility of dangerous trees nearly always falls on the owner of the land on which they grow? Please note that there are some exceptions to this rule. You should always look into such matters when it is unclear. It is often called into question when trees are growing on shared land or public areas. Your local council will always be able to offer valuable information and advice in relation to this matter.

It is important that you know what you are dealing with. Trees (especially large ones) can have preservation orders on them. Again, it is your responsibility to check this prior to undertaking any tree work. As professional tree surgeons we are able to offer information and advice in relation to this.

We deal with a lot of commercial tree surgery work and therefore have likely come across the query before. We own our own machinery so come well-equipped to take on any tree work.

Furthermore, we are available 24 hours a day for any urgent enquiries. We work incredibly hard to offer a first-class service for each of our clients.

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.

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.

Local tree surgeons Davenport Park

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.

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.

If you would like to arrange a quote or have questions about tree re-shaping please call today on 07855 859983.

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.

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.

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.

These images show a tree removal job that we completed in Stockport. Each of the pictures take you through the removal process. Before starting, it is often a challenge to imagine what the space will look like once the trees have been removed.

Beech Tree Removal StockportThe process is carefully considered prior to commencing the work. The images show how the trees were stripped and then the stumps removed. The beech trees were successfully removed, and our clients were exceptionally pleased with the results and service they received. Their garden was left full of light.

Many of our clients have questions about overhanging trees. Did you know that you are entitled to cut branches that overhang onto your property? The law states that you must offer to return the cut material to the owner. It is also important to realise that if you cause damage or harm to the tree that you can be held responsible by the owner.
