Welcome to the home of pruning in Limpsfield. The team at Chartfords Trees are highly trained in all aspects of tree pruning and can provide a full range of associated services throughout Surrey.
Why Might I Need Tree Pruning?
There can be a variety of reason why someone may need our tree pruning services. For example, it the limbs of a tree begins to overcrowd other specimens, they can have serious effects on other plants by blocking essential light to other trees, shrubs, plants and even your garden area.
Removing the potential for damage is common reason for pruning our customer’s trees. Trees often need to reduce weighty limbs which can be susceptible to damage from wind or just weight alone. By using our pruning services, we will be able to minimize damage from high winds and storms by maintaining your trees.
How Do We Complete Tree Pruning Tasks?
Before any pruning is carried out, it is essential that a comprehensive assessment is completed in regards to the particular tree species, shape, size and condition. Only when this has been completed will we be able to maintain an even balance and safe condition. All branches will be cut optimally to reduce the risk of tearing and infections.
To avoid damaged to your trees and surrounding areas, we utilise the very latest techniques to ensure the safe lowering of large limbs and branches. All pruning will be carried out in a controlled manner by using lowering ropes and or slings where necessary.
We will make appropriate cuts to the branch collar and always adhere to the guidelines set out in the BS3998 (British Standards). This will ensure tree health and balance while obtaining the desired overall shape of the tree.
Tree Pruning Services
Pruning is the correct term for the removal of any live part of a tree. It should preferably be carried out using a branch collar to give the tree its best chance of healing the resulting wound. There are various types of pruning that can be done:
Crown reduction is generally carried out when a tree outgrows the position in which it has been planted. The tree crown is reduced by shortening the branch system by approximately 10-30% maintaining a balanced shape throughout.
Crown Lifting is the removal of lower branches to increase the clearance between the ground and the crown. This can be useful to allow access and prevent any obstructions.
Crown Thinning is carried out to reduce the density of a trees branch system. This is done with the removal of branches within the crown which will enhance the shape and balance and increase light to the area.
