We Don't Offer
- Topping (Except for hedging)
In common with all reputable arborists we do not lop or top as these technique do not work. They increase the production of poorly attached endomorphic growths making the crown very dense and increasing the overall size of the crown. These practices always harm the tree and either kill the tree or make it so unsafe that felling is required. There are exceptions for example conifers to be used for hedging.
However we are always happy to advise on alternative tree pruning methods
BS3998 says in regard to tree work Kent
“Trees develop in balance with their environment (available space, soil and atmosphere) but they sometimes do so in ways that conflict with the use of the land surrounding them or the safety of people and property. Tree work can help to alleviate these problems. This standard calls for understanding of trees and caution because actions taken today can have significance for the long term growth and the need for future management of the tree.”
