Why is tree pruning or trimming necessary?

  1. Removing dead, diseased, or injured wood: One of the primary reasons for tree pruning is to eliminate dead, diseased, or injured branches. These branches not only detract from the aesthetic appeal of the tree but can also pose a risk to the tree’s overall health. By removing such wood, we prevent the spread of diseases and ensure that the tree can allocate its resources towards healthy growth.
  2. Enhancing light and air circulation: Trees with dense canopies often obstruct the passage of sunlight and restrict airflow within their branches. This can lead to poor tree health and promote the growth of fungi and pests. Through strategic pruning, we can selectively remove branches to allow more light and air to penetrate the interior of the tree. This encourages proper photosynthesis, reduces the risk of disease, and enhances overall tree vitality.
  3. Clearing from power lines, buildings, or other structures: Trees that are growing near power lines, buildings, or other structures can pose a significant hazard. Over time, branches may encroach upon these structures, leading to potential damage and safety concerns. Our experts specialise in carefully pruning trees to create safe distances between branches and structures, minimising the risk of accidents and property damage.
  4. Shaping trees to suit garden conditions: Every garden or landscape has unique requirements, and sometimes trees may grow in a way that doesn’t complement the surrounding environment. Pruning can be used to modify the growth of a tree, shaping it to better suit the conditions in your garden. By selectively removing certain branches, we can create a more balanced and visually pleasing tree that complements its surroundings.

Why we don’t use the term “lopping”

Lopping is a term sometimes used by customers but qualified tree surgeons would never use this word as lopping is basically indiscriminate cutting of branches. Speak to our qualified staff about safe procedures before you agree to allow someone to lop your trees and

we can advise you on the correct method to prune your trees.
