It may often be necessary to remove trees and RJ Broadley will use one of two methods depending on the particular situation.

Directional Tree Felling: Directional felling requires considerable precision and can only be used when there is enough space for the tree to fall safely in one piece.

Dismantling: Known also as “Section Felling”, this method is used by RJ Broadley when there is only a limited safe space to bring a tree down piece by piece.

If the area below the tree is clear and free from obstructions, then cut branches can simply be allowed to fall.

When branches are too large or heavy for the climber to hold and throw clear, or obstructions prevent their 'free falling', then lowering ropes are also used.
We can help with all aspects of tree care, from tree pruning with correct pruning techniques to complete removal, including mulching and stump grinding, planting and transplanting.
Reduction - When a tree outgrows its situation, RJ Broadley can be called in to reduce the height and spread of the tree crown.

Lifting - Often, when there is either a problem with access or with visibility under the tree canopy itself, the crown of the tree will need to be raised or “lifted”. Pruning of this nature should be carried out by  RJ Broadley before the tree reaches a mature age.

Thinning - When more light or air is required through the canopy of a tree, RJ Broadley will carry out Crown “thinning”. The density of the canopy is reduced and this can also reduce the risk of damage caused from crown resistance to high winds. Thinning is very often required on Conifers.
