Tree Pruning and Reshaping.
Areas We Cover
Southampton, Winchester, Fareham, Wickham and surrounding areas.
Lower Branches are removed to effectively raise the crown, which is the whole branch structure of the tree. This is a very useful treatment of large garden trees where shading is a problem, as the light can come in underneath the tree.
Crown density is reduced by the removal of selected branches from the whole crown, but the overall shape and size of the tree is maintained. This is normally done as a weight reduction method if a significant structural weakness is identified in the stem or major branches. It is also done to reduce damage that could result from crown resistance to strong winds or to allow more light through a tree.
Tree Crown Reduction and Reshaping
The crown is made smaller without spoiling the shape of the tree. This is very skilled work. Again it is done to reduce the weight in potentially dangerous trees, but can also be useful if trees are obstructing or damaging buildings or power lines.
Removal of dead and dying wood; stumps of broken or poorly cut branches; crossing branches or shoots. Crown cleaning can also include the removal of unwanted climbing plants such as ivy or foreign objects such as wires.
Tree pruning can be required for a number of different reasons. For instance, overgrown limbs can overcrowd other specimens and make things look informal, block the essential light to other trees, shrubs, plants and even your garden area. Another good reason to prune your tree/trees is to reduce weighty limbs which are susceptible to damage from wind or just weight alone. Minimize damage from high winds and storms by maintaining your trees.
