The complete removal of an unwanted tree by our expert tree surgeons, this could be for several reasons such as to allow light through or because the tree is dead or dying making it dangerous to it's surroundings. Essex Trees have many years of experience in the removal of often very large or decayed trees and can accommodate their removal even in awkward or restricted access areas.
Crown lifting is the removal of the lowest tree branches providing uniform height from the ground. This is usually to allow light through or to clear the way for access.
Crown thinning is the selective removal of branches and stems for increased light and air movement throughout the crown area of the tree improving the tree's structure.
The straight fell of trees is the removal of trees as a single unit by our tree surgeons, this is usually limited to situations where there is plenty of surrounding space and the tree poses no risk of damage to any property or other trees.
Pollarding is a long established tree surgery technique for pruning that helps keep trees and shrubs a smaller height or width than they would normally grow to. It is commonly performed when a tree or shrub reaches a required height, following this, yearly pollarding will keep the tree at that height.
This involves the removal of part or all of the tree by our tree surgeons who dissect it into smaller sections, these are then either free felled depending on the surrounding space, or brought down with the use of specialist equipment.
Stump grinding is the process of removing dead tree stumps down to an average depth of up to 20 inches below ground level.
Essex Trees are passionate about all aspects of tree surgery and wood use in general.
