Tree Care and why it is important

The term ‘ Tree Surgery ‘ is quite general and covers a broad array of services which we offer throughout Stretham. All works we carry out are focused on best practices for both our clients and also to ensure the longevity of their trees. There is no denying that tree work in all forms is dangerous, and that is why health and safety is always paramount to us, and ensuring the safety of the public, our clients, and their property and the surroundings is essential. Trees can become dangerous if not correctly cared for, so it is essential to ensure that you use the services of a professional arborist like ourselves.

We also have the latest equipment to make light work of your tree care needs. These include climbing equipment, state-of-the-art chainsaws, chippers, and stump grinding machines, so you can be sure that whatever your needs are, we have the equipment to deal with them swiftly.

Professional tree surgery services go beyond aesthetic purposes, and it is essential that a clear plan of action is considered before starting any work.

The benefits of tree surgery in Stretham

Tree surgery is an invaluable service for people living in Stretham, providing them with a wealth of benefits. From the safety aspect of reducing branch overhangs that could cause damage to a property to increasing the value of a home due to improved aesthetics of your garden or landscape, tree surgery comes with many advantages. 

Tree surgery is an important and challenging task with which we have vast experience. It requires a great deal of knowledge and skill to understand the biology of trees, their productive life cycles, signs of health adversity, and how to take care of them properly. The process typically begins with an assessment phase to understand the tree’s current status, followed by using appropriate pruning and trimming tools and removing any diseased or damaged branches where necessary. Afterwards, healthcare, such as disease treatment or fertilisation, might be recommended. We will assess the condition and then act accordingly to extend the trees’ lifespan while minimising environmental disruption in a safe manner.

Tree Felling in Stretham

Removing a tree, sometimes referred to as tree felling, is a fantastic solution if your trees have reached the end of their life or you need to create space for any reason, such as construction works, a driveway, or even to improve the landscape of your property. No matter the reason, we can help you, and below we have outlined some more information relating to tree felling.

What is tree felling?

Tree felling is performed by one of our dedicated arborists with years of experience and knowledge in understanding tree structures and best practices for removing them from their locations. Tree felling techniques involve either de-limbing a tree or directly cutting the trunk. These techniques require specialised equipment such as chainsaws, chippers or winches, depending on the size and condition of the tree being removed. 

Trees need to be felled responsibly to minimise soil erosion and habitat destruction. This means preserving surrounding trees, plants and wildlife while only removing what is necessary to create the desired outcome.

The process of tree felling

At Ely Tree Surgeons, we are experts in tree felling. We’ll carefully assess the environment to evaluate various factors such as the species of tree, nearby hazards, and the clearance required for safe removal. We will then begin cutting down the tree precisely using specialised chainsaws, hand tools or machinery to ensure no additional damage occurs. Once the tree has been felled, we will remove it from site either in sections or by using our specialist chipping machine. We can completely remove the stump left over using our high-powered stump grinding machine, leaving you with a blank canvas.

Reasons to fell your trees

Felling trees can be an essential part of taking care of your property. Whether you’re preparing for a construction project or looking to improve the appearance and health of your garden and surroundings, the operatives at Ely Tree Surgeons are equipped with the knowledge, experience and equipment necessary to remove any unwanted trees entirely. Additionally, regular maintenance from expert arborists helps ensure the safety and strength of surrounding trees by identifying potential hazards such as deadwood and misaligned branches. 

For those looking to maximise their land’s potential, felling trees can open up sunlit spaces that are difficult to reach and maintain. Beyond making room for new planting beds or outdoor features like patios, removing selected trees can make room for more usable green space. No matter what reasons you have for considering felling your trees, it’s important to consult experts before proceeding with your plans so that you can make informed decisions about their removal. We offer Free surveys and will be happy to discuss your needs at a convenient time.

With tree trimming, we will ensure that the methods we use are the perfect solution for your trees and will leave you with the perfect finish. No jobs are too large or small for us to undertake.

When it comes to trees, it is essential to ensure they remain healthy and strong. Tree cutting, pruning and trimming are important steps in caring for trees as they help promote growth, safety and aesthetics.

At Ely Tree Surgeons, we offer an array of services that can help keep your trees in good health and condition for the long term. Our knowledgeable experts understand the importance of tree cutting, pruning and trimming alongside other techniques to ensure that each tree receives the treatments it needs for maintenance and overall longevity.

Crown Reduction in Stretham

Crown reduction, sometimes called crown thinning, is a method of trimming the top part of a tree (the canopy) to reduce its size. There are many reasons why you may require crown lifting; some of the most common are where the tree has grown too close to powerlines or building structures, or the tree has become top heavy and is at risk of branches becoming damaged via breaking; this problem can be highlighted even more so when there are storms or bad weather. At Ely Tree Surgeons, we’ll take care of all your needs; check out below to learn more about tree crowning.

Crown reduction is a pruning technique used to reduce a tree’s crown’s overall size and density. Crown reduction can help to improve the growth of other branches by giving them more light and air exposure. Using crown reduction techniques on certain trees, such as maples, can also help reduce their sap production. At Ely Tree Surgeons, we have the experience and ability to care for all your crown thinning needs throughout Stretham.

At Ely Tree Surgeons, our highly-trained experts are dedicated to providing our customers with the highest quality of service. When performing a crown reduction, we always strive to retain the natural aesthetic beauty of the tree while removing any dead or diseased branches. We will usually begin by gaining an overall view of the tree crown and then prune back extensively to thin out any dense areas. We also perform intentional shaping to balance out a lopsided crown. Depending on the situation, we may also insert metal frameworks (such as copper rods or braces) into strategic points and pruning techniques to create more volume and achieve the desired shape. As specialist tree surgeons, you can always trust us to ensure your treen crown lifting needs are taken care of quickly and efficiently.

After crown reduction, ensuring your trees are kept healthy and safe is a top priority. It’s essential to immediately address any newly exposed areas of the tree, especially where branches have been removed, as these spots are more prone to infection. Firstly, it’s vital that all cuts made to the tree during the crown reduction process are correctly sealed using a pruning sealer or wound dressing. If applicable, mulch should be applied around the base of the tree and any other exposed areas of the root system – this will help protect against weed growth and provide insulation and resource availability to keep your tree in good condition. Finally, bacterial diseases must be monitored during the following few years. If you suspect your tree may be suffering from infection or disease, contact Ely Tree Surgeons as soon as possible so we can come by and offer an expert diagnosis.

For all your crown reduction needs, Ely Tree Surgeons are here to help. We will work with you to determine if crown reduction is the right solution for your tree and then walk you through the process so that you know what to expect. After we are finished, we will provide you with aftercare instructions so that you can keep your tree healthy and happy for years to come. Give us a call today to schedule a free site survey.

Stump grinding in Stretham

Tree stumps are unsightly and can cause a real issue. If you have a stump that needs removal, we have multiple stump grinding machines to tackle even the largest stumps! There can be endless reasons why you may require a tree stump to be removed; some of these include making an entrance for a driveway, construction works, or simply giving you a blank canvas to allow planting of other trees or plants.

Stump grinding is a fantastic service that provides a neat finish after removing a tree from its natural surroundings. The technique works by using a specialised grinding machine to grind the tree stump into small wood chips, which can be quickly and safely removed from your property. Not only does it make the tree roots easier to remove, but it also ensures that no stumps remain visible. Tree stumps can be very unsightly, but our stump removal service ensures you are left with a blank canvas, ready for whatever you have planned.

Tree stumps can be difficult to remove with conventional means, such as manual digging or introducing poisons which is not good practice. Our stump grinding equipment has cutting blades that grind the wood extremely quickly. The power of these machines enables our operatives to grind away at the stump until it is gone, leaving behind nothing but wood chips. It’s an effective and environmentally friendly way of removing an old stump without causing any damage to your property, thus making it a popular choice for many of our residential and commercial clients.
