At C&A Landscapes, we offer several different types of tree surgery, all explained below. Our fully trained and equipped staff, provide a professional and safe service.
Crown reduction is the removal of limbs to reduce the overall size of the trees crown. We take care to ensure cuts are performed to a high standard to minimise damage to the health of the tree whilst retaining it’s natural shape. This is a suitable method of control for most broadleaf tree species.
Crown raising is the removal of the lower branches of a tree. This is usually to allow more light or access for vehicles. We take care to ensure only minor branches are removed from the trunk of the tree (where possible) to minismise damage.
Pollarding allows the tree to regenerate in a similar way to coppicing, however the tree is cut further up the stump. Some major branches may also be left to maintain a natural shape. The work should be repeated every 2-8 years to keep the tree in good condition.
We are able to poison stumps that are likely to grow back. This is very important with resilient trees such as poplar to make sure the unwanted tree doesn’t come back.
We are able to grub out tree stumps. When a stump has been poisoned (if necessary) it is best to leave it a couple of months to make sure the roots have died and to prevent suckers from any leftover root popping up in your lawn or flowerbed.
