Tree Felling

Tree felling is the complete removal of a tree and all waste material.  Stockport Tree Surgeons will assess the tree in question, taking into account the available space and possible damage that might arise from such a procedure. Often a sectional fell is preferable to keep lawn and plant damage to a minimum, ropes and lowering devices may well have to be employed especially if space is limited. Branches and logs would then be removed unless otherwise requested.

Branches would be turned into woodchip for gardens and logs would be taken in movable pieces for firewood for our log clients in Manchester. No part of the tree would be wasted. Once the stump is at ground level it would be drilled and poisoned then a thorough cleanup procedure would then be undertaken of the surrounding area.

Tree Pruning

Tree pruning is the removal of selected branches from a tree. There are quite a few types of pruning and we would assess the appropriate type for the tree in question, here are a few examples.

Formative pruning

Formative pruning is used on young trees to provide good shape and structure. It entails the removal of dead, diseased, crossing, damaged branches and side branches from the lower third of the main stem. It is often done in the winter on deciduous trees but this varies. We would ensure that the tree grew in a natural and healthy way.

Crown thinning

The removal of selected branches within the crown to increase light and reduce wind resistance. With this procedure, we would maintain the natural shape while reducing foliage density. Thinning is normally done to a percentage of the base tree and from secondary branches. More branches are removed from the outside of the crown to maintain good structure.

Crown reduction

Crown reduction sometimes know as tree shaping differs from crown thinning in that it is the reduction of the size of the canopy as opposed to its density. We would keep the natural shape of the crown during this procedure. Excessive removal of the tree canopy can lead to a variety of problems for the tree in question, so our professional staff would go through the viable options with you regarding this procedure.

Crown clearing and dead wooding

This is the removal of dead, damaged, diseased, and broken branches from the crown. We provide this service not only to improve the visual aspect of the tree, but because such branches can present a real danger to people nearby.

Crown lifting

The removal of lower branches from a tree to increase light and also allow access for people or vehicles.

Hedge Trimming

The reduction of the height and width of hedges to maintain a good shape and prevent light loss. We provide a full hedging service to keep your hedges in tip top condition.


This is the practice where a tree is maintained at a specific height. Traditionally they have been maintained at a height of twenty to thirty feet. A large maturing tree can be kept small when pollarded. Using this method a trees water uptake can be reduced.

Stump Grinding

The removal of the root bowl or stump with a stump grinder. Although we offer this service as part of tree felling, we do not cover stump grinding as a standalone service. If you wish to simply remove a stump in your garden we can recommend someone simply click here.
