A crown reduction is carried out to reduce the height or spread of a tree by pruning back the leader and branch terminals to lateral branches. By cutting back these tree branches the overall canopy of the tree is reduced in size helping to maintain the form and structural integrity of the tree.
Crown Lifting is the removal of the lower branches from the main trunk, effectively raising the height of the trees lower canopy from the ground up. It is often carried out to improve access for either pedestrians or vehicles or to rebalance a tree if it is structured badly.
By reducing selected internal branches, it is possible to reduce the density of the tree, reducing stress and the danger of a tree or branch failure from high winds. Crown thinning allows more light and airflow to the tree and is also helpful where branches are conflicting with each other.
Pollarding can be carried out annually depending on species between late winter and early spring, but is more often performed at multiple year intervals. Frequent pollarding will also slow down root growth, prevent sub level damage and reduce excessive weight and vulnerability to high winds.
Tree felling is the complete removal of the tree, to leave a stump just above ground level in height.
We can safely dismantle and fell any tree, no matter the obstacle or difficulty in access. We use rigging techniques to lower branches and avoid damage to property and obstacles. We offer an excellent tree removal service for a fair price in Essex and Suffolk.
With most of our hedging we recommend a minimum yearly cut, otherwise the hedges can outgrow our ability to simply stay on top of them. More formative hedging requires two cuts a year to keep a nice edge to them and encourage the thickness of the hedge.
After a tree has been felled or dismantled, you are left with a stump just above ground level, a stump grinding machine is then placed onto the stump and lowered until the stump is ground out. This breaks down the stump and severs the roots leaving the ground ready for replanting.
With 8 years experience in the tree industry gathering knowledge from all aspects of the tree work, I decided to set up Arbor-Elite with a goal to provide a friendly, local and professional service.
My team and I look forward to working with you!
