Tree Pruning:Tree Surgeon Gateshead

LIFTING – is the method to improve the crown / canopy of a tree. It entails pruning or the removal of branches to improve the distance between the base of the canopy and the ground. It is generally completed to improve access to or provide visibility under the canopy.

THINNING – This involves the decrease in the denseness of the crown. This method wouldn"t normally be carried out on conifers, and so is generally restricted to deciduous broadleaf trees. Trees and shrubs may be crowned thinned to reduce damage that could derive from crown resistance to strong winds. Crown thinning can also be completed to allow more and light into and through the canopy.

DEADWOODING – This is the removal of deadwood from the trees and shrubs and is normally completed for cosmetic and of course safety reasons.

CLEANING OUT – This consists of the removal of dead, diseased, ruined, vulnerable and crossing branches. Epicormic expansion and watershoots can also be removed. Cleaning out also entails the removal of foriegn things and climbing vegetation such as Ivy.

Tree Felling:

When necessary, there are 2 ways of doing this.

DISMANTTree Surgeon GatesheadLTLING OR DIRECTIONAL FELLING – Very often space is limited and the tree must dismantled part by part. If the region below the tree is clear from obstructions small cut branches can be permitted to fall to the ground. When branches are large and heavy then ropes will be used.


DIRECTIONAL FELLING – Where space and safeness allow the tree can then be felled without trouble.

Stump Removal/Grinding:

STUMPS – Stumps of any size can be removed cleanly and efficiently using our specialist stump grinding equipment. The tree stump is milled down, normally to a depth of between 6″ to 10″ below the ground, this may be deeper depending on your requirements.

The opening is then filled back up using the grindings and extra is piled back onto the the hole.
