Tree Surgery Activities
We can advise you on the best course action for your trees.
Crown thinning (reduction)
Crown thinning or crown reduction removes some of the tree's branches and other growth so that more light reaches the tree's interior and ground below, allows more air to flow through the branches, and reduces the tree's upper weight.
Crown Raising (canopy lifting)
Crown raising, crown lifting, or canopy lifting, by contrast, removes some of the lowest branches of a tree. This increases the apparent height of the tree's crown above ground level and may also stimulate tree growth.
Pollarding may be done to produce a more formal or standard appearance, to make rows or groups of trees look nearly identical (as in an office tree landscape), or to limit the size of large-growing trees.
Deadwooding should be done periodically to remove dead or diseased tree branches which may also be broken or weakly attached. This is especially important where tree public safety or liability is an issue, especially public roads, parks, and gardens.
Overhaul & Regular Maintenance
A general tree pruning, tree trimming, tree shaping or tree cutting will improve the tree's health, safety and appearance even if none of the issues above are identified.
Tree stumps can be very difficult to remove and Setanta carries special stump grinding equipment in all such cases, with technicians specially trained to operate such equipment for a quick and complete stump removal.
Site Clearance & Wood Chipping
Where required we will chip, shred all haul away all timber, branches and hedges from your site leaving the area as we found it. All green waste is disposed of in a Green Waste recycling centre.
We can also provide the following services:
- Tree Planting and Transplanting
- Tree Bracing (Cabling)
- Tree Replacement
We are fully insured for all Tree Care and Landscaping activities. This includes Public and Employers Liability Insurance.
