Crown Reduction Experts in Coulsdon

Crown reductions is a process that involves reducing the overall size of your tree's canopy. Crown reduction is most effective when pruning the tree's limbs evenly throughout the entire crown area. Special care is taken to remove any deadwood or crossing branches. This process reduces the disease and pathogens that infect a tree. 

We typically complete crown reductions in Coulsdon to two specifications: we remove a percentage of the tree, this is typically no more than 25%, or, we work towards a pre-agreed diameter radius reduction, for example, we reduce to a specified radius of 8 metres and/or a height of 20 metres. Typically to keep a tree both healthy and natural in appearance, we rarely reduce foliage to anything greater than 30%.

There are several clear benefits to having a crown reduction completed on your tree in Coulsdon, these include: the prevention of later damage to the tree, we are able to properly balance the tree's weight, we are able to reduce any vigorous growth, crown reduction ensures a healthy re-growth and possibly the biggest advantage is that you won't need to retrim again for at least 3 years.

Professional Tree Felling Service Coulsdon

Tree felling is a last resort, however, due to a number of reasons it may be necessary to completely remove a tree. The largest reason to fell a tree is sue to disease. Diseased trees can infect other neighbouring trees that surround it ending in catastrophe. There could also need a need to fell due to safety concerns of either the public or property – broadly speaking this could be due to an infected tree or due to a planning application for construction.  
When we fell a tree, we typically look to do so in sections. This requires us to climb the tree and dismantle it piece by piece. On occasion we get to have a little more fun by traditional means of a ground tree felling, however, this requires a considerable amount of circumference area in order to safely complete the felling.
