Felling or Section Felling

The removal of an entire tree. If the surroundings permit, this can be done in one go (felling). In most situations there will be obstacles around the tree which must be avoided, in such situations the tree is removed in sections, some or all of which may have to be lowered to the ground using a system of ropes and pulleys.

Crown Thinning

Crown thinning is the removal of a percentage of a tree’s branches, no more than 20-25% should be removed dependent on species. This is achieved by selecting dead, damaged and rubbing limbs first, then moving on to take an even number of branches from the whole crown. Done well, this allows light to pass through the canopy giving a gentle dappled light.

Pollarding

Pollarding is a drastic method of pruning which should be avoided wherever possible. Exceptions may include street trees and those which have been pollarded in the past (re-pollarding). Certain species should never be pollarded and other cope much better.

Crown Reduction

Crown reduction is the trimming of a percentage of the outer-most branches to reduce the size of the canopy. No more than 25% should be removed. It is a common misconception that a large tree can be made small, it can’t.
