Many of our customers have asked us “ how tall is too tall?” Well, that depends on your property. If your tree is infringing on utility lines, overhanging streets or neighbours gardens, or is simply casting too much shade, then your tree may in fact be too tall. Yet, for our tree experts no tree is ever too tall as we have the equipment and expertise to tackle any size of tree. If you’re considering cutting a tree down to give you more sunlight, or to attempt to appease your neighbours, contact us first and let us show you the cost-effective difference crown reduction can make.
Have you noticed smaller to mid-size branches lying on your lawn after a storm or strong wind? Have you experienced extra leaves, chestnuts, or pinecones on the ground out of season? If you’ve noticed these rather annoying occurrences, chances are your tree requires a crown reduction. When the crown of your tree becomes overgrown, its limbs and branches have less room to move and sway. As such, branches can rub against each other, even in gentle winds, causing splitting, fracturing and breakage. Crown reduction can solve this problem, and reduce your need to tidy the garden.
No matter how beautiful, old, or notable your tress, there are laws that govern its maintenance. Trees must be intrusion-free of power lines and utility cabling. Laws also state that trees should be confined to your property, and mustn’t intrude on public walkways or streets. If your tree has overgrown your property's boundary, you may be liable for any associated damage or loss. Crown reduction can bring your tree back to a proper size, without minimising its appearance or functionality. Our tree experts know the laws, and can make your trees legally compliant. Don’t risk a fine or insurance claim; invest in crown reduction now and save yourself the legal headaches of tomorrow.
