Tree Felling is the process of taking down trees in one go. We can also section fell. Trees must be felled safely and in the direction that you want them to fall, consideration of other trees and anything else that may be harmed, the lean and height of the tree, and the slope of the ground.
General hedge trimming involves trimming and shaping hedges that have overgrown and need the height and width reduced to bring it back to shape. Alternatively, we can also remove the whole hedge and replace it if you wish. Depending on the size required of the new hedge, this will determine whether stumps require removing, we will advise you of the pros and cons during initial site visits.
Performing reduction services for your tree to keep it healthy and looking great. This is the process of removing dead, dying, diseased, crowded, and weak branches from the tree. This involves pruning them back to a growth point further down the branch. This will reduce the overall size of the tree. Crown reduction is often more effective than removing the whole tree and results in a tidier shape.
Dead or rotting wood within a tree can be detrimental to trees general health. Removal of deadwood is completed as part of a Crown Reduction or Crown Thinning process. The process is completed to prevent any risk of issues with falling debris. Removal is therefore beneficial for the tree and ensures the safety of the surrounding area such as public places or gardens.
We can offer complete tree and vegetation clearance wherever necessary. We carry out clearance for construction and industrial sites, plantations and woodlands, nature reserves and overgrown land and gardens. We have been involved in various site clearances for big housing developers such as Matthew Homes, and another home builder is Regenta Development. This often requires the felling of many trees around a site and the clearance of dense vegetation using specialist machinery such as tractors, large flails and whole tree chippers
Walker Tree Care perform reduction services for your tree to keep it healthy and looking great. Tree reductions also allow for natural light to be bought into a particular area. A reduction of the trees height and spread may be necessary to bring it back to its original shape and size.
We can provide professional advice and services for planting young trees and saplings. We can help you choose the best areas to plant trees and troubleshoot any issues that may affect or be affected by the planting of a new tree. We can provide advice on the best type and species of tree’s suitable for you. Shrub pruning helps establish a shapely shrub with balanced growth.
Stump removal is the process of removing the stump that is left after cutting and removing a large tree or shrub. Although the tree may be gone, stumps can still be an obstruction and the trees can also re-grow. Walker Tree Care use stump-grinding as a fast and effective way of removing any remaining stump, ensuring the space is re-useable to either replant or reinstate plants, lawns, driveway etc.
Crown Thinning is the removal of live branches to reduce the density of the tree’s crown. Thinning is one of the most common types of tree surgery. By doing this, wind can pass through more easily which will increase storm durability. This will also allow for more light to pass through the trees to make them more aesthetically appealing within the space they are located.
The removal of storm-damaged branches or trees can often be very dangerous, as often the tree is unsafe and unstable. We ensure work is competently completed using appropriate climbing and lowering techniques by our qualified teams. It may often be safer to access the tree using a MEWP (mobile elevated work platform) if we determine the tree to be too dangerous or unstable to work on in a safe and controlled manner. In more extreme cases where the tree is unsafe to be climbed it may require the use of a cherry picker or MEWP (mobile elevated work platform) to ensure full health and safety aspects are adhered to.
