As the years pass, trees grow and mature. It is natural that some branches, both large and small, will simply not thrive as others do. Dead wooding removal is a process where dead, dying, diseased or dangerous branches are removed. This creates a safer environment for anyone enjoying that space.
Our skilled arborists will then consider whether any crossing or rubbing branches should also be removed. We will also carefully assess where any further problems might subsequently arise. We always offer expert advice to ensure the long-term health and safety of any of the trees on your Hampshire or West Sussex property.
As well as the safety of those who enjoy your garden, it’s vital to avoid the danger of branches falling on areas around the boundary of your property. Such events can cause serious injury to neighbours, or to the general public on any pavements, pathways, and roads which adjoin your property.
Should such damaging accidents or personal injuries occur, then financial and other consequences can sadly also follow.
Crown Thinning for light increase
One of the key reasons trees are often added to a garden is to provide shade. As trees mature, a crown can grow which is overly dense and heavy. By blocking out too much light, this can starve other areas of your garden of the sunshine that bushes and plants need to thrive. A thick, heavy crown can also over-react in windy conditions; making the tree a danger.
Thinning the crown evenly, often removing both outer and inner branches, allows more valuable light to filter through to ground level, helping to evaporate excess water. At the same time, the amount of wind resistance is also reduced. The tree, however, should retain its original shape.
Our professional and experienced team also knows that too much thinning of foliage in the crown can be harmful to the future health of the tree. Thinning actions often remove no more than up to one third of the branches, and often considerably less, depending on the level of excess foliage present within the tree.
