Trees have many benefits from absorbing pollution to providing habitats for wildlife, it’s important to make sure trees are cared and respected for in a way that they are able to thrive and live for many years.
WRS make every effort to carry out tree work in a way that will benefit the trees and work to the guidelines set by British Standard BS3998:2010 recommendations for tree work.
The felling of trees should be a last resort although there are circumstances when it is necessary to fell. WRS are able to offer professional advice to determine if there are other options rather than felling to preserve the life of trees.
Teams are experienced in dismantling operations using the latest techniques and equipment to remove your tree safely and efficiently.
Tree Stump Grinding / Removal
We have the skill and expertise to remove any size of tree stump at any location throughout Nottinghamshire and the surrounding areas.
This method causes little disturbance and allows you to use the site straight away for replacement planting or other work you may require.
Crown Reduction / Reshaping
A Specified reduction in crown size whilst preserving the natural shape of the tree. This involves the overall reduction of the crown or, reducing the height and spread of one or more portions of the crown.
The extent of the reduction should be determined by the trees ability to cope with the operation. This will differ between species.
This involves pruning to achieve a desired vertical clearance above ground level or other surface.
Limbs are removed to the stem, no more than 15% of the live crown height should be removed and the remaining live crown should be at least two-thirds the height of the tree.
The removal of a proportion of secondary branch growth throughout the crown to produce an even density of foliage around a well-balanced branch structure.
The amount of leaf-bearing twig structure removed should not exceed 30% of the canopy of the tree.
The removal of the tree canopy, back to the stem or primary branches. Pollarding may involve the removal of the entire canopy in one operation. The period of safe retention of trees having been pollarded varies with species and individuals. It is usually necessary to re-pollard on a regular basis.
Crown Cleaning/ Deadwood Removal
The removal of dead, damaged, diseased and dying branches throughout the entire crown of the tree. This can be done for aesthetic or safety reasons. Deadwood is naturally produced in a trees canopy. It can be very beneficial for wild life by creating habitats, and it should only be removed if the dead wood poses a threat of injury or damage to property if it falls.
Any split branches should be removed. Climbing plants should be removed out of the tree canopy as these can be heavy and cause stress on branches and can act as a sail in strong winds.
Lopping And Topping
This is a crude, heavy handed, inappropriate method generally carried out by inexperienced tree cutters. THIS IS NOT PRUNING AND SHOULD BE AVOIDED!
