Looking for expert tree and shrub pruning services in Cardiff? Look no further than our team of highly-trained tree surgeons. We understand that tree pruning can be required for a variety of reasons, such as to reduce weighty limbs that are susceptible to damage from wind or just weight alone, to maintain an even balance and safe condition, or to obtain the desired overall shape of the tree.

Before any pruning is carried out, our team will assess your trees individually and decide the best possible course of action in relation to your tree species, shape, size and condition. We use the latest tree surgery techniques to ensure the safe lowering of large limbs and branches, and all pruning is carried out in a controlled manner using lowering ropes and/or slings where necessary.

Our team also adheres to the guidelines set out in the BS3998 (British Standards) to ensure tree health and balance while obtaining the desired overall shape of the tree.

Our tree pruning services in Cardiff include:

  • Tree Crown Cleaning: Removal of dead and dying wood; stumps of broken or poorly cut branches; unwanted epicormic shoots. Crown cleaning can also include the removal of unwanted climbing plants such as ivy or foreign objects such as wires.
  • Tree Crown Lifting: Lower branches are removed to effectively raise the crown, which is the whole branch structure of the tree. This is a very useful treatment of large garden trees where shading is a problem, as the light can come in underneath the tree.
  • Tree Crown Thinning: Crown thinning is a technique used to reduce the density of a tree’s crown by selectively removing branches from the entire crown. This method helps to maintain the tree’s overall size and shape, while also reducing the weight of the tree’s major branches. It is often used as a preventative measure to avoid potential structural weaknesses or damage caused by strong winds. Crown thinning also allows more light to penetrate through the tree, which can be beneficial for gardens or lawns beneath.
  • Tree Crown Reduction and Reshaping: Crown reduction and reshaping, on the other hand, involves reducing the size of the tree’s crown without damaging its shape. This requires skilled pruning methods such as “drop-crotching,” which involves selectively pruning the tree’s branches to reduce its weight while maintaining its aesthetic appeal. This technique can be used to address potentially dangerous trees, obstructing or damaging buildings, or power lines.
  • Tree Pollarding: Tree pollarding is a management technique used to encourage regrowth in young trees. This involves removing the main leading stem of the tree to encourage the growth of new shoots. These shoots can then be regularly removed (re-pollarded) back to the same point (the pollard head). Pollarding is commonly used in urban areas to manage the growth of trees and maintain safe distances from buildings and power lines.

We understand that maintaining your trees can be a daunting task, which is why our team is here to help you. With years of experience in the industry, we guarantee quality workmanship and excellent customer service.
