A tree may need pruning for a variety of reasons:

Remove diseased or storm-damaged branches

Thin the crown to permit new growth and better air circulation

Reduce the height of a tree

Remove obstructing lower branches

Shape a tree for design purposes


All our work is carried out to BS3998:2010 (British Standards) with the health of the tree our priority.

We provide a range of tree pruning including: crown thinning, raising and reductions. The type of pruning depends on the client’s requirements, type of tree and time of year.

Crown Reduction
Crown reduction involves reducing the overall size of the tree. Always pruning back to suitable growth points and maintaining a good shape of the crown.

Crown Thin
Crown thinning Involves selective removal of branches within the crown. Whilst not affecting the size it increases the light and air flow within the tree.

Crown Lifting
Crown lifting involves removing selected lower branches of the crown, while maintaining a balanced tree. Crown lifting is often done to provide clearance from roads, paths and buildings.
