We observe strict guidelines in relation to nesting birds and roosting / hibernating bats as well as other wildlife, and liaise with the appropriate authorities and trusts where necessary.
Trees are sympathetically pruned to train their form and remove any defects, create good spacing of their branches and reduce the risk of structural failure and therefore maintenance costs in the future. All operations will be completed leaving each tree in an acceptable, well-balanced and safe condition.
All large limbs will be lowered by ropes and slings to avoid damage to the tree and its surroundings. We will ensure that all sections fall to the ground in a controlled manner.
Dead, diseased or damaged branches will be pruned back to the corresponding branch collar. Under no circumstances will any flush cuts be made. In the case of crossed rubbing branches, the branches will be assessed, pruned or removed appropriately, whilst ensuring that a reasonable overall shape is maintained.
