Best Tree Pruning services Middlesbrough

Crown Reduction

Our Crown reduction service involves reducing the weight of the tree to ease the mechanical stress on the tree. To achieve this, we need to reduce the size of the tree, both in terms of its height and the extent of its canopy. This means the tree has to bear less load and is less resistant to wind, meaning it is less likely to fall when exposed to harsh weather conditions.

A variety of problems can occur if the maintenance of your tree is neglected. If a tree grows too crowded inside a home, it can create too much shade or block light from reaching neighbouring homes. Additional pressure on tree branches can cause them to break and fall, creating an unwanted hazard.

Our tree trimming service will restore your tree to its original healthy state. We will work carefully to reduce it to a smaller version of its original shape so that it no longer poses a risk to your home.

Crown Lifting

Crown Lifting is done by removing the lower branches. This allows more light to pass through the underside of tree; it also involves removing branches that might be obstructing or overhanging a footpath, we do this by creating a clearance under the crown of the tree. We will assess the tree to determine if it only requires crown lifting, in some cases it may be necessary to remove deadwood, which could cause diseases to the tree.

Crown Thinning

Crown thinning is the process of cutting internal and outer branches, If the canopy of your tree has become to dense, then crown lifting can help promote more light and airflow through the tree. Crown thinning will improve the aesthetics of your tree, once we have pruned the tree it will become more symmetrical and a present a tidier appearance.

Tree Pollarding is achieved by pruning the leading stem to short stubs. This encourages re-growth which later requires re-pollarding back to the pollard head.
