Shedding some light on tree safety and health
It is important as tree owners to check for potential safety hazards and ill health, if you do spot deadwood becoming an issue or see that the crown needs thinning, then PTS are happy to give you advice that you can rely on.
Dead wooding is the removal of any dead branches that are still attached to the tree or are hanging in the crown. Dead wooding is wise to carry out in more public areas as a safety aspect, where people may be hanging around under the trees such as in a garden or a public footpath.
Thinning is the selective removal of branches within the crown allowing more light to pass through, it can also help to decrease cross wind resistance. This will not change the shape of the tree, it is important that this be carried out correctly as if too much foliage is removed, it can cause ill health for the tree.
