What it takes to provide a top-notch tree surgery service. 

Let’s face it, tree surgery takes knowledge and skill. It should be left to the professionals that have the experience to take on such a complex service. From knowledge about local laws to knowing how to reduce the crown on a tree, this service is varied and quite unique. 

Want to provide the best tree surgery services in the business? Here’s how: 

Knowledge: Make sure you’re in tune with the most up to date local legislation including tree preservation orders, conservation areas etc.

Skills: Having practical skills is essential in providing an exceptional tree surgery service. Tree felling, crown management and stunt maintenance all require practical skills combined with knowledge to ensure that they’re done correctly.  

Qualifications: Having a formal qualification in Arboriculture will give you the edge when it comes to tree surgery. Understanding the plants, and especially the trees, that you’re working with will make your job that much easier and ensure that your customers get good results from your tree surgery services. 

Insurance is a must: Ensure that you have Public Liability Insurance covering all work that’s undertaken, this reduces your risk and ensures your customers have peace of mind. 

Tools: Having the right tools will ensure that all of your knowledge and skills are maximised when you provide a tree surgery service. It also ensures that your service is efficient and safe and the results are of the highest quality. 

OH & S: Ensure that your occupational health and safety practices are on point at all times. There’s nothing like an incident to smear your reputation within the industry.  

Understand what your customer wants: Like any service, ensure that you gather all the required information from your customer and understand what their desired outcome from the tree surgery service is. Cutting down a customer’s favourite tree will lead to a very unhappy customer.

Landscape Garden Design and Build Project - Yapton, West Sussex - Phase 1

We originally visited this stunning property in 2017. Here are some images of the initial site clearance prior to garden design.

We then had to wait a few months whilst the tree and conservation applications were approved to further remove larger tree specimens which had been highlighted as dead or dying. A few tree reductions also took place. Watch this space!

Hedge Cutting & Hedge Maintenance

As a well established Chichester based Garden Services Company we are often asked about our Tree Surgery Services.

Cloud Landscapes Ltd are regularly contracted to help maintain and manage a wide variety of areas from stately homes to vast land areas.

This week we were asked to tackle a very large hedge in Hambrook, West Sussex. The hedge was used as part of a boundary for a very large field. Unfortunately it had been left for some time and grown to a size which could be no longer managed by a tractor flail attachment.

Our associate Guy was put in charge to tackle the 250 metre stretch of hedging which needed to be reduced to approximately 5ft just above the fence line. The sides also needed to be reduced back in the same manner.

Despite the snow and freezing cold temperatures the team were able to complete the job in record time. This also helped the client avoid any setbacks due to the nesting bird season.

Crown Lifting - Tree Surgery Services Chichester

What is Crown Lifting? Tree Surgery terms explained.

The lower branches can be cleared through this tree service, particularly if the crown is undoubtedly too big for the place. This is most especially necessary if you want to have better lighting for your garden. Also, this can provide your place with more space

In case that the plant becomes an obstruction to a pathway, a view or a structure, this can be done to make clearance and better space available. Most of the time, the entire lower branches are removed in order to highlight clearance of the base of the crown. The work is based on the distance between the ground and the lowest branches.

Tree Crown Lifting is the removal of tree limbs, and is done for functional and aesthetic purposes. If a limb becomes damaged or diseased, it may need to be pruned to preserve the health of the tree. Some people also do this to their trees to increase foliage or direct growth for aesthetic purposes.

Avoiding Disease

Perform Tree Crown Lifting to keep your landscaping healthy. Overgrown, crossing branches can cause damage by rubbing against each other. Dead, damaged, or diseased branches attract harmful pests that can affect the overall health of the plant. Trimming strengthens timber, because the plant is able to focus its growing energy toward the core instead of the peripheral branches. Stronger hardwood is able to weather storms better, without toppling or losing branches.

Attractive Growth

Trimmed hardwoods are generally more attractive than overgrown ones. When you cut according to the natural growth of your landscaping, the stock will assume its natural form and shape. It's also more likely that trimmed trees will produce more vegetation and flowers. This can translate directly to a higher fruit yield for fruit-bearing specimen. Because storms often damage untrimmed expansion, you can keep your saplings more attractive and less susceptible to storm damage by trimming.
