Crown Reduction

Tree reduction, also known as tree pruning or all over trimming is a technique used to reduce the overall size of mature trees. This is recommended when a tree outgrows the space it’s in, or when dead, diseased or damaged branches have been identified.

Correct tree reduction can help promote good tree growth, improve safety and clearance, improve the aesthetic appearance of trees and allow more light to penetrate the canopy.

Crown Lifting & Crown Thinning

Crown lifting involves “lifting” a tree’s canopy by removing the lowest branches. This increases the height of the canopy, improving access and increasing the amount of light and air available under the tree. Crown lifting may be considered where lower branches are causing clearance issues for infrastructure, buildings and vehicles.

Crown thinning removes material from inside the tree’s canopy but does not reduce the overall canopy size or shape of the tree. The aim of crown thinning is usually to improve the amount of light that can penetrate the canopy, reduce weight stress and the potential for wind damage.

Tree Pollarding

Tree pollarding is a method of pruning a tree back, removing the crown entirely including all shoots and branches. This is often done to control the height of trees, improve light and ensure that trees do not interfere with infrastructure such as street lights and overhead cabling. Pollarding is not suitable for all tree species, make sure you seek advice from a qualified arborist before considering this method for trees on your property.

Emergency Tree Work

Amber Tree Care’s team is qualified to conduct emergency tree work operations and will respond to emergency tree work enquiries in the Highland area as soon as possible.

Trees can become damaged as a result of extreme weather, impact from vehicles or simply from age and disease. Where a tree has become dangerous and is impacting the safety of people and property in the surrounding area it is important to assess this quickly and carry out emergency works to either make safe or take down the tree. Where a tree has been downed and is causing disruption to surrounding infrastructure such as roads it will be necessary to section the tree to make it more manageable and remove both the tree and any other debris.

If you are concerned that a tree has become dangerous please get in touch with the team who will be able to advise and assist on 07500 520 975.
