Tree Pruning & Reduction

What is Tree Pruning?

Tree pruning entails deliberately removing specific branches or sections of a tree to enhance its health, shape, and growth.

Our team of highly skilled and experienced tree surgeons in Stockport specialise in trimming dead, diseased, or overgrown branches to improve sunlight penetration and air circulation, thereby benefiting the tree in various ways.

Before Makeover

Last year we undertook the task of pruning a remarkable beech tree that had grown with grace in the front garden of a residential home.

Despite the client’s fondness for the tree, it had begun to obscure the light entering the front of their house and the neighbouring rooms.

Our team assessed the tree and the location to find the best possible solution to create the clients desired results.

After Makeover

Stepping back to gain a distant perspective of the tree, we suggested a careful approach of a crown lift and thinning, which is the removal of the lowest branches and the removal of smaller / tertiary branches, usually towards the outer portion of the crown, as well as a considerate overall reduction.

Our skilled team of tree surgeons executed this plan, resulting in increased light without compromising the tree’s beautiful structure, form, and elegance.

Expert Advice

Tree pruning serves multiple purposes, including preventing damage to lightly loaded structures such as walkways, driveways, and garden walls.

Timely tree pruning can prevent damage to properties such as trees growing close to fences and pushing them out of line or weak branches falling onto building structures causing further potential damage.

By removing dead, weak or diseased branches from a tree you improve the overall tree form and health. However, pruning without knowledge or experience can lead to the reduction of a trees life span and further damage to the tree.

Nick and his friendly team took down a selection of trees that were growing right up against our house. The whole process, from the initial site visit to the removal was very professional and we are delighted with the result. The team was respectful of our garden and they took great care to leave our garden very tidy.
