The glossary below includes useful explanations of the work we undertake.

Crown Reduction:

The necessary reduction of the overall size of the tree whilst retaining its natural shape.

Crown Thinning:

Reducing the density of the foliage of the tree. This will allow more light through, reduce wind resistance and can make the tree look generally tidier.

Crown Lifting:

Raising the level of the crown to a specified height by the removal of the lower branches.

Dead Wooding:

Removal of all dead, diseased or dying wood from within the crown.

Sectional Felling:

Reducing the tree in manageable pieces, in a controlled manner to a height where the trunk can be safely felled.

Side Pruning:

Removal of the side branches of the tree to a suitable growth point.


Dropping of the tree as a whole, only carried out with the aid of winches.

Tree Surveys and Reports:

We offer a comprehensive service of reports and surveys. From individual tree reports for mortgage and insurance companies, to full surveys for utility companies and local councils.
