Tree Surgery and why it is necessary

Tree Surgery is a broad term that covers many services, from simple tree pruning to the intricate processes of tree felling and removal. At LM Tree Surgery Winchester we have a passion for all aspects of arboriculture. We are committed to keeping up with the latest industry standards and employing cutting-edge equipment, ensuring efficiency in every project we undertake.

When it comes to tree surgery, the priority should always be ensuring the health and wellbeing of the tree or shrub that needs attention. This is where our skills and expertise come into play. We are equipped with all the necessary climbing equipment, striking tools, and aerial aids to allow us to carry out delicate operations whilst ensuring the least disruption to your trees. Whether tree crowning or even deadwood removal or pruning is required, you can rest assured that LM Tree Surgery Winchester will enhance your trees’ health and wellbeing and help to protect them against pests, diseases, and potentially hazardous conditions.

Along with promoting tree growth, correct tree maintenance also has the advantage of decreasing the likelihood of your property or the surrounding areas becoming damaged by potential falling branches or uprooted trees during harsh weather or heavy rainfall. There is no question that professional tree surgery goes above and beyond aesthetic purposes.

The benefits of tree surgery in Winchester

Tree surgery offers a wealth of benefits; these include potentially increasing the value of your home due to improved aesthetics of your garden or landscape and also there are safety benefits by reducing top-heavy trees where branches are under too much stress, thus potentially leading to damage when they snap.

Tree surgery is an essential and intricate task in which we possess extensive experience. It requires a profound knowledge of tree biology, their productive life cycles, early signs of health issues, and the art of proper tree care. The process typically starts with a comprehensive assessment to gauge the tree’s current condition, then if required the precise use of suitable pruning and trimming tools to remove any diseased or damaged branches.. Subsequently, a healthcare plan may be needed which can involve disease treatment or fertilisation. We aim to meticulously evaluate the tree’s health and take appropriate action to extend its lifespan while minimising environmental disruption.

Tree Felling in Winchester

If you are considering tree removal in the Winchester area or the surroundings of Hampshire, we’re here to help. The safe and efficient removal of a tree requires a considerable amount of skill and expertise, and you can be confident that the professionals at LM Tree Surgery Winchester will provide an outstanding tree-felling service tailored to meet our clients’ individual needs and requirements. Depending on your unique situation, we can offer guidance on the best course of action, whether it involves removing deadwood or diseased trees in their entirety. Our priority is to ensure minimal disruption while carrying out all necessary work.

Tree felling is a very common service we offer that involves cutting down trees and removing them from our customer’s properties. This may be necessary for various reasons, including safety concerns, clearance for construction projects, or improving your landscape’s appearance. Whatever the reason, it’s essential to understand the basics of tree felling before getting started. 

What is tree felling?

Tree felling is performed by one of our dedicated arborists with years of experience and knowledge in understanding tree structures and best practices for removing them from their locations. Tree felling techniques involve either de-limbing a tree or directly cutting the trunk. These techniques require specialised equipment such as chainsaws, chippers or winches, depending on the size and condition of the tree being removed. 

Trees need to be felled responsibly to minimise soil erosion and habitat destruction. This means preserving surrounding trees, plants and wildlife while only removing what is necessary to create the desired outcome.

The process of tree felling

At LM Tree Surgery Winchester, we are experts in tree felling. We’ll carefully assess the environment to evaluate various factors such as the species of tree, nearby hazards, and the clearance required for safe removal. We will then begin cutting down the tree precisely using specialised chainsaws, hand tools or machinery to ensure no additional damage occurs. Once the tree has been felled, we will remove it from site either in sections or by using our specialist chipping machine. We can completely remove the stump left over using our high-powered stump grinding machine, leaving you with a blank canvas.

Reasons to fell your trees

Felling trees can be an essential part of taking care of your property. Whether you’re preparing for a construction project or looking to improve the appearance and health of your garden and surroundings, the operatives at LM Tree Surgery Winchester are equipped with the knowledge, experience and equipment necessary to remove any unwanted trees entirely. Additionally, regular maintenance from expert arborists helps ensure the safety and strength of surrounding trees by identifying potential hazards such as deadwood and misaligned branches. 

Those looking to optimise their land’s potential need to consider tree felling as an effective way to unveil sunlit spaces that are otherwise difficult to access and maintain. In addition to making room for new planting beds or outdoor amenities like patios, selectively removing trees can also increase the amount of usable green space. No matter the reasons behind considering tree removal, it is crucial to consult with experts before taking any steps. We offer free surveys and can discuss your needs at your convenience.

Crown Reduction in Winchester

At LM Tree Surgery Winchester, we possess the knowledge and skills to cater to all your crown thinning needs. When trees on your property become overcrowded or pose safety concerns, choosing crown reduction to decrease their height and spread becomes crucial.

Implementing crown reduction techniques, especially for tree species like maples, can also significantly lower sap production. 

Our highly-trained experts are dedicated to providing our customers with the highest quality of service. When performing a crown reduction, we always strive to retain the natural aesthetic beauty of the tree while removing any dead or diseased branches. We will usually begin by gaining an overall view of the tree crown and then prune back extensively to thin out any dense areas. We also perform intentional shaping to balance out a lopsided crown. Depending on the situation, we may also insert metal frameworks (such as copper rods or braces) into strategic points and pruning techniques to create more volume and achieve the desired shape. As specialist tree surgeons, you can always trust us to ensure your treen crown lifting needs are taken care of quickly and efficiently.

After crown reduction, ensuring your trees are kept healthy and safe is a top priority. It’s essential to immediately address any newly exposed areas of the tree, especially where branches have been removed, as these spots are more prone to infection. Firstly, it’s vital that all cuts made to the tree during the crown reduction process are correctly sealed using a pruning sealer or wound dressing. If applicable, mulch should be applied around the base of the tree and any other exposed areas of the root system – this will help protect against weed growth and provide insulation and resource availability to keep your tree in good condition. Finally, bacterial diseases must be monitored during the following few years. If you suspect your tree may be suffering from infection or disease, contact LM Tree Surgery Winchester as soon as possible so we can come by and offer an expert diagnosis.

For all your crown reduction needs, LM Tree Surgery Winchester are here to help. We will work with you to determine if crown reduction is the right solution for your tree and then walk you through the process so that you know what to expect. After we are finished, we will provide you with aftercare instructions so that you can keep your tree healthy and happy for years to come. Give us a call today to schedule a free site survey.
