The benefits of tree surgery in Felixstowe

Tree surgery is an invaluable service for people living in Felixstowe, providing them with a wealth of benefits. From the safety aspect of reducing branch overhangs that could cause damage to a property to increasing the value of a home due to improved aesthetics of your garden or landscape, tree surgery comes with many advantages. 

Tree surgery is an important and challenging task with which we have vast experience. It requires a great deal of knowledge and skill to understand the biology of trees, their productive life cycles, signs of health adversity, and how to take care of them properly. The process typically begins with an assessment phase to understand the tree’s current status, followed by using appropriate pruning and trimming tools and removing any diseased or damaged branches where necessary. Afterwards, healthcare, such as disease treatment or fertilisation, might be recommended. We will assess the condition and then act accordingly to extend the trees’ lifespan while minimising environmental disruption in a safe manner.

Tree Felling in Felixstowe

At Felixstowe Tree Surgeons, we have been felling trees for many years. Our professional services ensure we have the necessary skills to offer the best tree removal for residential and commercial clients in Felixstowe and the surroundings. Removing a large tree can seem daunting, but you can rest assured we’ll make light work of it. The reasons for needing tree removal are endless; from safety concerns to aesthetic reasons or clearing a site for a development project, you can be confident of our services.

What is tree felling?

Tree felling is performed by one of our dedicated arborists with years of experience and knowledge in understanding tree structures and best practices for removing them from their locations. Tree felling techniques involve either delimbing a tree or directly cutting the trunk. These techniques require specialised equipment such as chainsaws, chippers or winches, depending on the size and condition of the tree being removed. 

Trees need to be felled responsibly to minimise soil erosion and habitat destruction. This means preserving surrounding trees, plants and wildlife while only removing what is necessary to create the desired outcome.

The process of tree felling

At Felixstowe Tree Surgeons, we are experts in tree felling. We’ll carefully assess the environment to evaluate various factors such as the species of tree, nearby hazards, and the clearance required for safe removal. We will then begin cutting down the tree precisely using specialised chainsaws, hand tools or machinery to ensure no additional damage occurs. Once the tree has been felled, we will remove it from site either in sections or by using our specialist chipping machine. We can completely remove the stump left over using our high-powered stump grinding machine, leaving you with a blank canvas.

Reasons to fell your trees

Felling trees can be an essential part of taking care of your property. Whether you’re preparing for a construction project or looking to improve the appearance and health of your garden and surroundings, the operatives at Felixstowe Tree Surgeons are equipped with the knowledge, experience and equipment necessary to remove any unwanted trees entirely. Additionally, regular maintenance from expert arborists helps ensure the safety and strength of surrounding trees by identifying potential hazards such as deadwood and misaligned branches. 

For those looking to maximise their land’s potential, felling trees can open up sunlit spaces that are difficult to reach and maintain. Beyond making room for new planting beds or outdoor features like patios, removing selected trees can make room for more usable green space. No matter what reasons you have for considering felling your trees, it’s important to consult experts before proceeding with your plans so that you can make informed decisions about their removal. We offer Free surveys and will be happy to discuss your needs at a convenient time.

Crown Reduction in Felixstowe

Tree crown reduction is a very popular service that we offer. Crown reduction (also referred to as crown thinning or crown lifting) reduces the overall size of a tree’s canopy. A dense tree canopy can become dangerous over time; branches become stressed, and in turn, in bad weather, it can lead to them breaking and potentially causing damage to their surroundings. Another cause for concern and reason to have your tree crowned is when they have grown too close to power lines or even buildings and boundaries; all of these scenarios can have a knock-on effect, leading to more significant issues. A tree that is appropriately crowned is safer and also looks very attractive.

The term crown reduction which is also sometime referred to as crown lifting, or even crown thinning will decrease the overall density and size of your tree. It is a process that will help improve the trees’ overall health by allowing newly exposed branches to gain more exposure to light and air. Using crown reduction techniques on certain trees, such as maples, can also help reduce their sap production. At Felixstowe Tree Surgeons, we have the experience and ability to care for all your crown thinning needs throughout Felixstowe.

At Felixstowe Tree Surgeons, our highly-trained experts are dedicated to providing our customers with the highest quality of service. When performing a crown reduction, we always strive to retain the natural aesthetic beauty of the tree while removing any dead or diseased branches. We will usually begin by gaining an overall view of the tree crown and then prune back extensively to thin out any dense areas. We also perform intentional shaping to balance out a lopsided crown. Depending on the situation, we may also insert metal frameworks (such as copper rods or braces) into strategic points and pruning techniques to create more volume and achieve the desired shape. As specialist tree surgeons, you can always trust us to ensure your treen crown lifting needs are taken care of quickly and efficiently.

After crown reduction, ensuring your trees are kept healthy and safe is a top priority. It’s essential to immediately address any newly exposed areas of the tree, especially where branches have been removed, as these spots are more prone to infection. Firstly, it’s vital that all cuts made to the tree during the crown reduction process are correctly sealed using a pruning sealer or wound dressing. If applicable, mulch should be applied around the base of the tree and any other exposed areas of the root system – this will help protect against weed growth and provide insulation and resource availability to keep your tree in good condition. Finally, bacterial diseases must be monitored during the following few years. If you suspect your tree may be suffering from infection or disease, contact Felixstowe Tree Surgeons as soon as possible so we can come by and offer an expert diagnosis.

For all your crown reduction needs, Felixstowe Tree Surgeons are here to help. We will work with you to determine if crown reduction is the right solution for your tree and then walk you through the process so that you know what to expect. After we are finished, we will provide you with aftercare instructions so that you can keep your tree healthy and happy for years to come. Give us a call today to schedule a free site survey.

Stump grinding in Felixstowe

If you have an unsightly tree stump in desperate need of removal, we can help. We have multiple stump grinding machines of different sizes, which are perfect for any situation. When trees are removed, people often leave the stumps, but they can become a real issue, and removal is actually easier than some people think. The reasons for stump removal are endless; from creating access for construction works to more space in your garden, or even just for appearance, we will ensure your stumps are removed promptly.

Tree stumps can be a severe issue for property owners in Felixstowe. When a tree is removed, a lot of the time, the stump is left sticking out of the ground. This scenario can cause real issues for many reasons, including if you need to create access to an area and the stump is in the way, or if you have plans for construction work, or just want to make your garden tidier, then stump grinding is something that can certainly help you. Our stump grinding machines are top of the range and will ensure your stumps are removed quickly and effectively, causing the least possible disturbance for you. Our operatives have been removing tree stumps for years and will ensure yours is taken care of quickly and efficiently.
