Tree Pruning London are a professional tree surgery company offering tree services to london and the surrounding areas. There are many reasons for cutting your tree/trees this could be simply because your tree/trees are overwhelming and are taking up or perhaps taking over your garden area and light to surronding trees shrubs or plants, to remove storm damaged or diseased branches, or simply to aid your trees and property to work harmoniously in both urban and rural areas.
Once the decision has been made to prune a tree, the next decision to make is whether or not to tackle the job yourself and how confident you might be in doing so. In the case of a large tree where you want to remove big branches in the upper area of the crown, it may be best to hire qualified tree experts. Large tree pruning, in particular, can require climbing and chainsaws or even cherry-pickers.
This is a job that should be left to trained and experienced professionals, whom are covered by specialist insurances. We would never advise that a client compromise personal safety in pruning a tree and would always recommend seeking the advice of an expert before trying to complete work alone..
If your tree/trees does take up all of your light in your garden there is a technique called tree thinning that a qualified tree surgeon can offer to help resolve this. This technique opens up the tree crown to allow more light throught the centre of the tree, tree thinning can also prevent wind blown trees as the air flow can then easily pass through the tree instead of creating a force that pushes against it. Crown thinning is a pruning technique primarily used on hardwood trees, and the selective removal of stems and branches not only increases light penetration and air movement throughout the crown of a tree, but can also make life uncomfortable for tree pests further aiding the health of your tree.
Tree Pruning Services can also include the reshaping of trees whilst retaining a natural shape by reducing the ends of branches that have out grown the normal uniform of the tree. Normally there is a given percentage for tree reductions which will relate to how much would taken off of the ends of the branches; for example 20% would need to be cut off of the branches that protrude the natural shape and pruned back into the predominant shape of the tree.
Tree reductions help keep your tree in good health maintaining the branches weight so that they do not break and leave dangerous damaged or dieseased branches on you tree. London being a very urban town this can be ever more important as many trees overhang main roads and/or public footpaths, as well as neighbouring gardens. Emergency tree work can be expensive and can quite often not be the only cost endured by an unsafe tree.
