Our Tree Care FAQ

We provide a wide range of tree care services to our clients within the Weymouth, Portland and Dorchester areas. Trees have dynamic, self-optimizing structures that make incremental growth each year.  It is essential to have a thorough understanding of their biology and physiology.  Then, we can make appropriate recommendations for remedial work, if necessary.  Any form of pruning is effectively wounding the tree.  Therefor, it is important to undertake any work at a time of year best-suited to the individual species.  Our team of trained arborists are able to offer sound, professional advice, without obligation.
If you have trees that are affected by Storm Damage, we can help to make them safe.  Our team of trained arborists can quickly make your trees safe and deal with the mess.  Naturally, you can be confident that our team is fully insured.
Crown lifting selectively removes some of the lower branches of a tree’s crown.  The increase in distance between the base of the canopy and ground level allows more light to reach the ground.  Consequently, this technique is often used when branches obstruct roads or pavements.
We all understand the positive benefits of trees, but there are a number of situations where tree felling is required.  Dead or wind-thrown trees can be hazardous, and some simply outgrow their space near buildings or utilities. We provide straightforward, honest advice about whether your trees can or should be felled.
Our Emergency Tree Work services are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Trees are susceptible to fall or fail without warning during turbulent storms and high winds.  The result of such failures can have catastrophic effects on people or property.  Our tree care team is always on standby to respond to these emergencies quickly, and get things moving again. This service is available to home-owners, businesses and public sector bodies.  For instance, any organisation with numbers of trees and constant access requirements. The objectives of our Emergency Tree Work call out service are:

  1. Respond verbally to your request for assistance, and arrange for a site assessment as soon as practicable
  2. Conduct a quick but thorough risk assessment before any work is carried out
  3. Arrange for the prompt deployment of all necessary staff and equipment
  4. To resolve the situation as quickly as possible by first making safe the relevant area
  5. Proceed with the relevant emergency tree work in a timely fashion
  6. At busy times, provision will be made for a later return to the site to provide a thorough clean-up service.
  7. We are Environment Agency-registered licensed waste handlers, so will always remove all waste appropriately
We undertake a wide range of woodland management services, from selected felling, coppicing, restoring lapsed coppice, scrub clearance, Rhododendron management, tree and hedgerow planting, deer fencing and ivy removal.  Give us a call to arrange a site visit and free initial consultation.
If you wish to lessen the shade caused by a tree, Crown Thinning is sometimes used in preference to a crown reduction, as it is often a cheaper option. Dead, diseased, damaged and overlapping branches are generally removed first, then a number of small, secondary branches are removed.
Stump grinding and removal are highly specialised tasks, particularly in the vicinity of underground services, and should not be attempted without the right training or equipment. Our tree care team have the right tools, the training and the experience to dispose of your stumps cleanly and efficiently.
Crown Reduction describes the process of reducing the overall size of the tree, whilst retaining its main shape.  A small amount of the end growth is removed from the peripheral branches.
Trees in any location may be protected by legislation for a wide variety of reasons.  Examples include biodiversity, amenity or to avoid unnecessary tree loss.  Proposed tree work might also be subject to legislation covering the protection of bats or nesting birds. The penalties can be very severe.  Those guilty of non-compliance could face several thousands of pounds in fines and replacements.  The law applies equally to both the contractor and property owner. TPOs are placed on individual trees, groups of trees, and even entire forests and woodlands where the local area benefits from the great aesthetic value of the protected tree/s. Similar statutory protection is afforded to all trees above a certain size (75mm diameter at 1500mm height) inside a conservation area.  The protection covers the whole tree, including the roots, which may extend many metres beyond the canopy. We take our obligations to clients and the environment very seriously.  Dale can advise on the completion of the application forms, or submit the form for you, for £30 (plus vat).  He can also provide a comprehensive, no obligation, written report to accompany the application.   All proposed works will be specified to British Standards 3998:2010 – Recommendations for tree work.
