How can I tell if I need Tree Crown Reduction?

Tree crown reduction Grays wide is mostly used to reduce the thickness of the canopy of the tree. If when in leaf your tree has started to block your light, or you can no longer enjoy the views you once had, it may be time to reduce the crown. Unlike crown lifting which removes the lower branches of a tree, crown reduction goes further than that and reduces the overall size of the canopy both in terms of height and spread. The result is not only beneficial to the home or landowner, but also to the tree as the process allows more air to flow around the branches which promotes the health of the tree.

Tree Crown Reduction Grays: All Sizes and Types of Trees Covered

Our Grays tree crown reduction service spans a huge range of tree species and sizes including all trees commonly found in the United Kingdom.

Irrespective of whether your tree or trees are located on public land, in a domestic garden, on commercial land or somewhere dangerous such as by a railway line or a lake or riverbank, the experts at T.H. Tree Services have the experience and specialist training required to handle everything safely.

Our knowledge of when and how to carry out tree crown lifting Grays wide using the correct methods means you can enjoy complete reassurance that your tree will not only preserve its good looks, but will also receive a boost to its health too.

These are just a few of the most popular trees we regularly work on throughout Grays and all surrounding areas:

  • Oak – all species such as English or common oak, sessile oak and holm oak. Oak trees can grow to heights of 40 metres and tend to grow exceptionally wide canopies. Not a problem though for our experts who are able to offer effective tree crown reduction for any oak tree on your land.
  • Willow – including willows such as the weeping willow and crack willow situated adjacent to lakes, rivers or ponds, etc. where they love to be. Willow trees have long, cascading branches and it is sometimes advantageous to reduce the crown so that people can make use of the shade beneath it. With more light getting through to the branches, the tree will enjoy enhanced health and it will also be easier to maintain.
  • Ash – the ash tree is known to grow to heights of around 35 metres. When working on the ash tree, we are always using our professional knowledge to look out for the common disease ash dieback. If we spot any symptoms then we will of course advise you accordingly and let you know of our suggested course of action.
  • Fruit trees – such as the pear, plum, cherry and apple tree. It is vital that fruit trees are professionally pruned on a regular basis because they benefit from developing a robust branch structure which enables them to support their heavy fruit crops. Some light crown reduction may be required depending on the individual specimen, but we will confirm once we assess your tree.
  • Conifers and pines – the likes of yew, cedar and Leyland cypress are very popular and known to grow to towering heights, often up to 100 metres. As always, our experience, knowhow and specialist equipment mean we have no issue in dealing with reducing the crown of these trees.
  • Eucalyptus trees – including the cider gum tree, popular along the Essex coast. Eucalyptus trees can grow to heights of 30 metres and benefit from crown reduction periodically.
  • Beech trees – the beech tree is well known for its expansive, bushy canopy and towering heights and is one of the trees that benefits most from tree crown reduction Grays wide. Regular pruning is advantageous for the beech tree because it helps with leaf retention year-round, which is of particular benefit if you rely on your beech tree for privacy screening.
  • Other deciduous and evergreen trees – for example silver birch trees, hornbeam trees, elder trees, elm trees, lime trees, maple trees, sycamore trees, rowan trees, elm trees, whitebeam trees, spindle trees and aspen trees. Whatever tree you have that needs its crown reducing, we will expertly look after it for you.

Common diseases affecting trees in Grays

When we carry out tree crown reduction Grays homeowners and estate managers value the fact that we have the knowhow to assess the tree for any signs of disease or decay. This is vital as weakness of the branches could be present and the tree’s health could be suffering.

Some species of trees are more prone to disease, fungi and pest infestations than others. Common tree diseases like ash dieback, chestnut blight, Dutch elm disease and oak decline are well known in the UK, but these are not the only diseases to look out for.

A crucial aspect of our service is identifying and dealing with diseases, fungi and pest infestations. If you are worried that your tree may be suffering from disease or fungus or is infested with a pest, our guide to common tree diseases and pests should prove useful. If you have any particular concerns, please do not hesitate in contacting us for tailored advice because the sooner your tree undergoes treatment, the more likely it will be to make a full recovery.

When is the best time for tree crown reduction in Grays?

There are certain times of year when tree crown reduction should be side-stepped.

The bird nesting season which runs from February to August and no tree work can be undertaken during this time unless it’s an emergency. If there are branches posing a risk, or the tree needs urgent attention to treat with disease or infestation, proceeding is usually permissible.

In addition, it is best to avoid tree crown reduction whilst the tree is actively growing. This for most trees happens during late spring to early winter. Whilst the tree is actively growing, it will bleed sap when cut. Sap attracts bugs which bring with them all sorts of diseases.

Again, emergency tree work can go ahead at any time, but wherever possible it is best to wait until the tree is in its dormant phase. Some tree species enter the dormant phase at different times, so you’ll need to check the timing for your individual tree. Have a read of our news and tree ID pages for guidance on the optimum time to prune your particular tree, or contact us for tailored advice.

You will also need to consult the local authority TPO register if your tree is of notable interest. If it is protected by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) then the amount of crown reduction allowed will be restricted and you will require permission from your local authority to proceed. This is likely to take up to eight weeks to come through.
