London Tree Pruning

Tree Pruning is a very common request.

It is a commonly held misconception that pruning needs only to be done on older trees. Corrective tree pruning early in the tree's life will maintain a pleasing shape, keep the tree healthy, and prevent time consuming and expensive work at a later stage. A tree adapts to it's growth conditions and will flourish throughout it's life with occasional pruning.

There are many reasons why a tree needs pruning. It is important to take into account whether or not pruning will be beneficial to the tree or shrub in terms of it's life expectancy and health. It is important to remember that pruning may do more harm than good, and in some situations may create more problems than it solves. Take a look at our Crown Lift, Thinning and Reshaping Services.
