We carry out tree pruning to a rigorous standard: BS3998 [2010] Recommendations for tree work.

All trees and their environments are different, so we are always prescriptive when providing recommendations for managing a tree. Three main types of operation are needed for effective tree crown maintenance:

Crown lifting

This involves pruning to achieve a desired vertical clearance above the ground, enabling better access beneath the tree or over structures. It is also a great way to increase light levels in a garden.

Crown reduction

To enhance the tree's visual 'amenity', we carry out crown reduction, keeping the main branch framework and therefore a high proportion of the foliage-bearing structure. After reduction, there will be a strong framework of healthy small-diameter branches and twigs that can produce dense leaf coverage in the following growing season. This will keep the tree healthy and enable it to recover well from pruning.

Crown thinning

We keep an even density of foliage throughout a well-spaced and balanced branch structure which can if required provide an adequate framework for future crown reduction. Moreover, we remove material systematically throughout the tree rather than simply the inner crown.
