Heavy Malus crown reduction, our client liked the tree but hated the mess from the fruit!
We gave the tree a heavy prune to get the tree back into shape and also reduce the fruit fall this autumn.
Mature Oak reduction today, another firm started this tree (notice the cuts at the top proir to work) unfortunately for them they walked away without completing the work.
Carefully pruning and lowing was an absolute must on this tree! Just look at all the targets we had to work around.
Glass conservatory, house, garden sheds with tile roof, a modern outhouse building, fences and all the shrubs.
Another successful prune with no damage.
Another unstable tree with a major cavity in the buttress. Our client didnt want the tree left as a standing pollard and asked if we could try to retain a shape.
Once regrowth begins the tree will have some kind of shape to it.
Field maple (Acer campestre) reduction in progress, not visible from this photo but this tree had alot of dysfunctional wood at the base.
Target pruning on this Hornbeam and pollard a small row of Ash trees as per client’s request.
A misty start to the day, this morning we undertook a job tidying up this dense Oak tree.
The tree had been heavily pruned in the past and as a result vigorous regrowth had made the tree very claustrophobic and messy.
The client wanted a clean canvas for future growth so we carried out some structural pruning for future development.
Mature Beech (fagus sylvatica) Ruduce back to previous pruning points, crown thin and crown lift.
So much better when the sun shines!
Target pruning carried out an this semi-mature Oak tree today, dead wood prunning and crown lift to give adequate clearance from recently build extension.
A snowy start to the day! Litte job reducing this leyland cypress and trimming the profiles to give a more copact appearance.
