Reasons a tree may need pruning
One of the most common reasons our tree maintenance services are called in is to tackle overgrown trees. When left for many years without care, trees can spread out towards properties, damage paths, and block views. They can also become very dangerous, especially if the overgrowth makes the tree top-heavy.
Thankfully, there is a very effective way of managing a tree that has overgrown. Removing some of the branches can make a big difference to the health of a tree, and tree shaping will greatly improve its appearance. In the event that a tree has become dangerous, pruning and shaping can balance out the weight to reduce the risk of it toppling over. Loose, split or low-hanging branches can also be removed to increase a tree’s safety.
Why you need a professional for tree pruning
Removing branches from a tree, especially low ones, might seem like an easy DIY job. However, there are many reasons why you need a skilled tree specialist to take care of the job. The first is safety. All of our arborists have years of experience, hold a range of relevant qualifications, and have undergone extensive training. We know exactly what equipment to use, and how to use it safely. Plus, in the extremely unlikely event that an accident occurs during our work, we are backed by a comprehensive insurance policy which also protects you.
Trees are extremely complex and every one is unique. Tree pruning and shaping therefore requires expert knowledge of future growth and species behaviour. Making a mistake during the pruning process can create big problems in years to come. For example, removing a crucial branch from the tree’s main structure can cause it to grow in an unsafe way. We understand tree growth patterns, so we can ensure that we trim and cut the right branches.
