Tree pruning

Oxleas Tree Care take pride in our pruning to ensure that your tree takes pride of place on your property. Your tree will be left looking natural and balanced.

Trees in urban or populated areas require a higher level of care to maintain their safety and aesthetics. Pruning should be done with an understanding of how the tree responds to each cut, this can only be performed by a qualified arborists. Improper pruning can cause damage that will last for the life of the tree, or worse; shorten the life of the tree.

We will advise you on the types of pruning that can improve the health of your tree, the safety of the tree for both people and property and of course, the visual beauty of your tree.

  • Crown Reduction: To reduce the overall crown of usually older trees, while keeping the trees natural shape. This technique is used to help the strength and stability of the tree and to increase the life of your tree.
  • Crown Thinning: This technique can be used on a stand alone basis or combined with a crown reduction. This opens the canopy by removing dead, weak or diseased branches. This helps prevent the tree acting as a 'sail' in high winds. Allowing the branches to move freely and reduce the branches rubbing to promote the well being of the tree.
  • Crown Lifting: To remove the lower branches that are causing obstruction to property, vehicles and pedestrians.
  • Pollarding: Only to be used as a last resort and on certain trees such as Limes or London Planes. This technique involves removing all the branches back to the trunk.

Tree Planting

Trees are good for people, wildlife and the environment.

Planting trees is an easy and effective way to create visual aesthetics to your property, provide shade in the Summer and wind protection in Winter and enhance privacy whilst adding value to your property. Since a tree is such a visible part of the landscape, care must be taken to ensure proper growth conditions are maintained.

We have access to a fully stocked nursery from small saplings to more established trees. We are happy to give free advice and recommendations on what tree to plant and where.
