Tree Care

Young’s Tree Services provide a comprehensive tree care service. The goal of tree care is to maintain or improve the structure, appearance, vitality, and safety of your trees. With tree care, we look for ways to fix, preserve, and increase the health of your trees rather than removing them.

 

Tree Felling/Removal

Any size of tree in any location including dismantling of dangerous trees or trees in confined spaces. We use various techniques when it comes to tree removal. Rarely do we have enough space to fell a tree in one, so most trees are dismantled using lowering systems, free fall branch removal or a crane.

 

Crown Lifting

Removing lower branches to increase light and space in your garden. This is really effective way of creating more light and at the same time retaining the trees natural shape of canopy. One other benefit is that the tree is often much more open at the bottom enabling you to see right up into the canopy.

 

Stump Removal

We use modern purpose built ‘stump grinders’ which are much more efficient than digging out stumps resulting in cheaper prices. After a tree has been removed the stump is often in the way and will not rot away for many years. Grinding the stump will enable you to re-plant in the same location or simply turf over the area.

 

Pruning

Managing the shape or size of a tree or shrub at any stage of its life. When executed correctly, pruning can offer a variety of benefits to trees that include improved health and appearance, enhanced views, and even increased flowering. This could be a simple job of formative pruning fruit tree. Or reducing branches away from buildings and utility lines.

 

Crown Reductions

To reduce the height or spread of the crown of the tree by the removal of the ends of the branches whilst maintaining the tree’s natural shape as far as practicable. This is a good way to provide more light to your property or making a tree safe as this will reduce the sail.

 

Planting

If you have a tree removed, it is a good idea to plant a new tree as a replacement. If you would like some help choosing the perfect tree for a certain location we are more than happy to help. There are hundreds of species to choose from and it is good to know the characteristics of a tree and how big it will get.

 

Hedge Work

We provide a high standard of hedge trimming and hedge reduction. Lowering the height of a hedge is a great way to let in more light in to your garden and reducing back the width of a hedge can increase the size of your garden. It is wise to trim hedges annually as this prevents the size of the hedge from increasing.

 

Trees Surveys & Reports

If you own a tree or trees which are situated next to the public highway, paths, buildings or public areas, it is a good idea to have a tree survey carried out as the owner is liable for any damage caused by a tree failing. The survey will identify any unsafe trees and state which remedial work is needed.

 

Dead Wooding

The removal of dead branches is important for safety reasons and can improve the appearance of a tree. Dead wood can cause a fair amount of damage to property if fallen from a height. Also when dead branches fall they can damage lower branches and make them unsafe.
