At Harz tree surgeons, we have over 10 years experience providing a comprehensive range of tree surgery and contracting services. We are widely recognised as a capable and experienced specialist Arboricultural Company in the UK.
The emphasis of our tree work is conservation but in cases where a tree is in decline, or there are structural weaknesses, sometimes trees have to be felled. Harz tree surgeons can dismantle the tree carefully and safely, which is particularly important if the tree is in a confined space or has complex surroundings in urban settings or on commercial land. Once the operation is complete we recycle the wood into mulch for applications within the landscape industry or bio-mass production.
Pruning is often required to produce strong, healthy and attractive trees or for safety reasons due to structural weaknesses. The experienced Arborists at Harz work to British Standard BS3998 to ensure that trees are considered with regard to species, age and condition.
Age of the tree affects the type of tree pruning required; If you have young trees, the focus is on producing a strong structure for future growth. If your trees are mature, the aim of pruning is maintaining structure, form, health and appearance.
Harz’s Arborists will evaluate all aspects of your tree and advise on the type of pruning required to achieve the desired outcome.
If the crown of the tree is too dense it may require 'thinning'. Branches are selectively removed to increase light penetration and air movement and maintain, or develop, a tree's structure and form. In other instances the crown, or individual branches, may require a 'reduction' if the tree has grown too large for its space or to preserve its form. Lower branches may require pruning for similar reasons or to allow clearance for pedestrians, vehicles or lines of sight, a process known as crown 'raising'. The tree may have dead, dying, diseased or broken branches and may require 'cleaning' to maintain tree health and safety.
Harz’s expert Arborists will consult with you and advise on the appropriate solution.
