In situations where there is sufficient room, the method of felling a tree by pulling it down while keeping it intact can be employed. To ensure the tree falls correctly, this approach demands precision and expertise. Although it is infrequent due to spatial constraints and the proximity of structures, our tree specialists possess the necessary training and certification to implement this technique.
The practice of tree pruning involves a blend of tree maintenance methods, such as Deadwooding, Crown/Canopy Thinning, and Lifting. Generally, a single operation is insufficient for ensuring a tree’s proper maintenance, overall health, and well-being.
Deadwooding refers to the elimination of deceased branches from trees. Since tree branches can wither and decompose over time, they may fall from the tree onto the ground, including nearby public areas or private property.
For aesthetic and safety reasons, it may be necessary to perform crown reduction on a tree. Among the most frequently employed tree pruning techniques today, crown reduction entails trimming the outer foliage of a tree, which reduces its size and alters its shape, resulting in a more attractive and manageable appearance.
Occasionally, it may be necessary to decrease the density of a tree by selectively removing some of its branches in a coordinated and planned manner. This procedure, known as Branch Removal or Foliage Reduction, is carried out throughout the entire crown, rather than just the inner portion. As a result, the tree will have a more uniform distribution of branches and foliage throughout its entire structure.
Crown lifting is a tree pruning technique that involves the partial or complete removal of the lower branches, usually from the lower outer sections of the crown. This procedure is often necessary for broad-leaf trees such as Oak or Beech Trees to achieve a more uniform branch structure.
Stump grinding is typically the final stage in tree removal. After a tree has been felled, the stump remains at ground level, which is often considered unsightly. If left unaddressed, the stump may lead to issues such as root disease and the growth of fungi, such as honey fungus, in the future.
