Tree Pruning:Tree Surgeon Spital Tongues

LIFTING – is the method to improve the crown / canopy of a tree. It entails pruning or the removal of branches to boost the distance between the foot of the canopy and the ground. It is normally carried out to improve access to or provide visibility beneath the canopy.

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

DEADWOODING – This is the removal of deadwood from the trees and shrubs and is generally carried out for cosmetic and of course safety reasons.

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

Tree Felling:

When necessary, there are 2 ways of doing this.

DISMANTTree Surgeon Spital TonguesLTLING OR DIRECTIONAL FELLING – Frequently space is bound and the tree must be taken down piece by piece. If the area below the tree is clear from obstructions small trimmed 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 safety permit the tree can then be felled without trouble.

Stump Removal/Grinding:

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

The hole is then packed back up using the grindings and the excess is piled on top of the hole.

HEDGE CUTTING AND TRIMMING – We are able to undertake all sorts of hedges to be trimmed or reduced in height. This will improve the appearance of your hedge and will also let more light into your garden. Due to the selection of equipment we own, all sizes of hedges can be tackled.
