Types of Tree Work 
 
Tree pruning can be necessary to maintain a tree in a safe condition and if a tree is not pruned in the correct manor this can lead to trees becoming diseased  
and potentially dangerous. On your quotation sometimes there are certain words that don't explain  
clearly what is going to happen to your tree, to help you we have come up with this helpful information list to assist you: 
 

CROWN THINNING 

Crown thinning simply means the removal of a smaller portion of branches, usually at the outer crown.  
This will produce a uniform density of foliage around an evenly spaced structure. 
It does not alter the overall size and shape of the tree and it should not exceed 30% overall.  
Crown thinning will usually allow more light to pass through the tree, reduce the weight and wind resistance. 

CROWN LIFTING/RAISING 

Crown lifting is the preparing of lower branches for future removal and/or the removal of the lowest branches.  
It should not include the removal of large branches growing directly from the trunk.  
Crown lifting is an effective method of increasing light to areas close to the tree
 
 
 

CROWN REDUCTION 

Crown reduction is the reduction in height and/or spread of the crown.  
Reduction is the process of removing branch tips, pruning back to further down the branch. 
This can make the tree more suited to it's environment and reduce shading and light loss. 
It may be done to remove dead/diseased or damaged branches, or just to reduce the overall size of the tree. 

DEADWOODING 

These are the non living branches or stems due to natural ageing or external influences. It should be left as much as possible as it provides essential habitats and it should only be removed if it poses a risk. 
These limbs can then fall over time or during periods of high winds and storms. 

POLLARDING 

This is the initial removal of the top of a young tree, once started it should be repeated; always retaining the initial pollard point. Pollarding is a pruning system involving the removal of the upper branches of a tree. This promotes the growth of a dense head of foliage and branches. 

DISMANTLING/FELLING 

A tree will need to be dismantled or felled if it has become hazardous. Tree dismantling is different from tree felling as the tree is removed carefully in sections to eliminate potential damage to nearby trees and structures. It is also used when extra attention needs to be paid to limit the risk of damage and maximise the safety of members of the public/their properties. 

STUMP GRINDING/REMOVAL 

Stump grinding is used for when you need to remove the stump from a felled tree.  
The machines can completely destroy the roots of the trees in a few seconds. 
If the tree you removed was diseased then avoiding stump grinding could cause the disease to spread through its roots and into other plants.  
 
 
 
 

HEDGE TRIMMING/MAINTENANCE 

New hedges require formative pruning for the first couple of years after planting and this is usually carried out in the winter or spring.  
Maintenance trimming occurs after this usually once, sometimes, twice a year.  
The maintenance trimming is usually carried out between spring and summer. It can also revive the appearance and health. 
 
 
 

TPO/CONSERVATION AREAS 

There are many trees that are legally protected. Felling or even just pruning a protected tree without permission from your Local Planning Authority may be a criminal offence.  
Always check for Tree Preservation Orders or Conservation Area restrictions with your local council’s Tree Officer and/or Planning Department before carrying out any works.  
Browns Tree Solutions can do complete checks for you, please ask for further details 

SCRUB CLEARANCE 

Scrub can be a few scattered bushes, a patch of nettles and bramble, a dense thicket or young trees starting to grow. 
If left unchecked, scrub could take over and turn flower-rich grasslands into woodland. 
The aim of scrub-clearing work is not to remove the scrub entirely, but to make sure it isn't dominating the area. 

OTHER AREAS WE COVER 

Habitat creation, Management plans, timber extraction, vegetation clearance, site preparation and pre development surgery.
