You may require tree pruning for several reasons, some of which are aesthetic; trees with crowded branches or limbs can begin to look unsightly and may even reduce the flow of sunlight to surrounding plants. Other common reasons to prune trees will include the need to remove heavy and potentially dangerous branches.
Kent Forestry ensures your tree pruning is conducted safely and efficiently. Before pruning commences, our qualified and skilled tree surgeons take the time to complete a thorough risk assessment.
We assess each tree we prune; during this process, our team considers the size, variety and current condition of your tree. How our arborists cut the branches ensures your tree is protected from infection along with improving upon or maintaining the tree’s current shape.
Our team has the qualifications to ensure pruning causes no damage to the surrounding area. This is achieved by using all appropriate safety tools (Ropes, Harnesses, Slings), which allow branches to be lowered safely to the ground.
This type of pruning is called for when an existing tree’s crown is low reasons include the tree is; obstructing your view, causing large shaded areas in your garden, or the tree being near a road; a low crown may impede vehicles.
The crown lifting process is relatively simple as the technique involves merely cutting away the lower branches. This serves to lift the height.
Crown reduction is a common task for our tree surgeons. However, this service is highly skilled work. The purpose of crown reduction is to reduce a combination of the height and spread of the existing tree crown.
The process involves cutting away the ends of existing branches. When performed well, the tree crown will maintain its current shape. Crown reduction is an excellent way to manage the size of larger trees.
While not altering the overall shape of the tree crown thinning will reduce the load on the tree’s limbs by significantly decreasing wind resistance and weight.
We often recommend crown thinning when dealing with a structurally weakened tree or if the tree in question is blocking light levels in the surrounding area. Activities include removing intertangled branches or limbs from the crown of the tree.
Kent Forestry’s Tee Surgeons ensure your tree is pruned correctly and to the highest possible standards.
