The aim of this particular form of tree pruning is to reduce the height and spread of a tree’s crown. This reduces stress on branches and the tree as a whole, and can often times makes it more suitable for its environment. Small cuts are made carefully at key, pre-determined areas, ensuring the health of the tree isn’t compromised.
Need a problematic tree removed from your residence? Just give us a call. Our tree surgeons are familiar with both sectional and directional tree removal, and will opt for the best technique for the job. We have a stringent health and safety policy, and will ensure that the tree removal takes place with minimal disruption to your day.
You don’t have to suffer large stumps that have been left on your property and land following a tree removal. Call in our tree surgeons and we’ll carry out fast and affordable stump grinding, using a powerful machine which will reduce it down to a mulch. We can then leave this mulch with you, for use as fertiliser, or take it away with us to leave you with a clean site.
This essential maintenance procedure should only ever be performed by qualified tree surgeons, as it’s as much an art as a science. It’s a type of tree pruning which involves the removal of a section of smaller branches, usually located at the outside of the crown, to create a consistent density of foliage spaced across an even branch structure. Typically, this is conducted on broad-leaved trees. It keeps them healthy and under-control.
Do you own or look after an area of woodland? There’s a lot of responsibility that comes along with the turf, so to speak. If you don’t invest in timely tree pruning, tree removal, hedge cutting and similar essential tree surgery tasks – then you could experience some major issues. Tree branches falling from great height, trees, hedges and flowers rotting or dying – and unwelcome visitors, including problematic pests. We can provide ongoing woodland management, ensuring your space stays healthy, leafy and safe.
Whether it’s just a little touch-up for a couple of flowerbeds, or your garden is an overgrown jungle in dire need of a complete overhaul – our tree surgeons can help. Some clients in and around Oxford and Cumnor have green thumbs, but now struggle to reach all the different areas of their garden and to carry out routine maintenance they used to handle themselves. Others love to enjoy their garden on summer’s days, but lack the time or inclination to keep it looking its very best. Whatever your situation, give us a call.
In our line of work, you tend to accrue a quantity of sawn timber. We make this available for sale to the Oxford and Cumnor public. You may want it for arts and crafts, or for use as firewood. Call us to discuss the specific quantity and quality of wood that you require.
