Tree Pollarding

Tree pollarding is a specialised pruning technique to manage the size and shape of trees. Through this method, our Tree Surgeons selectively remove the upper branches of a tree, promoting a dense head of foliage and limiting the overall growth. Typically performed on species like willows and poplars, tree pollarding helps control tree size, prevent overcrowding, and maintain aesthetic appeal in urban environments. This practice, when executed by our skilled professional tree surgeons, can prolong the lifespan of trees while ensuring their safety and suitability within their surroundings.


Tree Pruning

Tree pruning is a fundamental practice in arboriculture aimed at maintaining the health, appearance, and structural integrity of trees across our Northampton and Milton keynes regions. Through strategic removal of dead, diseased, or overgrown branches, our Tree Surgeons enhance airflow and sunlight penetration, fostering optimal growth conditions. Pruning also promotes the development of strong, well-distributed branches, reducing the risk of breakage during storms or heavy winds. Whether it's shaping young trees to encourage growth or rejuvenating mature ones, expert pruning by our skilled tree surgeons ensures the longevity and vitality of trees while enhancing the overall beauty of our commercial and residential landscapes.


Tree Crown Reduction

Tree crown reduction is a specialized tree pruning technique employed to reduce the overall size and volume of a tree's canopy while preserving its natural shape and structure. This process involves selectively removing the outermost branches and foliage, effectively reducing the crown's height and spread. Our Tree Surgeons perform crown reduction to alleviate stress on the tree, improve its structural stability, and to mitigate potential hazards posed by overhanging branches. By carefully trimming the canopy, our Northampton and Milton Keynes arborists can enhance light penetration, airflow, and overall tree health, ensuring its longevity and safety within its environment. Crown reduction, when executed with precision and expertise, contributes to maintaining the aesthetic appeal and functionality of trees in both urban and rural settings.


Tree Crown Lifting/Raising

Crown lifting, also known as crown raising, is a pruning technique focused on raising the lower branches of a tree to increase clearance between the ground and the crown. Our local Tree Surgeons employ this method to create space beneath the canopy for pedestrian and vehicular traffic, as well as to enhance visibility and access to buildings or other structures. By selectively removing lower branches, our arborists can improve air circulation, promote healthy growth of grass and plants underneath, and reduce the risk of collisions with branches. Crown lifting is a valuable practice in urban forestry, contributing to the safety, functionality, and aesthetic appeal of trees in various landscapes while ensuring their long-term vitality.



Deadwooding is a crucial arboricultural practice focused on the removal of diseased, dying, or hazardous branches from trees. This process involves selectively pruning out dead or decaying wood, which not only enhances the tree's aesthetic appeal but also promotes its overall health and safety. By eliminating weakened or diseased branches, deadwooding reduces the risk of potential hazards such as falling limbs, which can pose a threat to property and personal safety. Additionally, deadwooding allows for better air circulation and light penetration within the tree's canopy, fostering a healthier environment for the tree to thrive. This proactive approach to tree care not only safeguards property and individuals but also contributes to the long-term vitality and longevity of trees in urban and natural landscapes across Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, Northampton and Northamptonshire.


Tree Felling

Felling is the controlled process of cutting down trees, which we typically carry out for purposes such as land clearing, or hazard mitigation by our fully qualified tree surgeons. It involves the careful planning and execution of techniques to safely bring down trees while minimizing risks to surrounding structures, people, and the environment. Prior to felling, factors such as tree species, size, lean, wind direction, and surrounding obstacles are assessed to determine the safest approach. Depending on the circumstances, various methods such as directional felling, which involves cutting notches and guiding the tree's fall using special techniques may be employed. Safety measures, including personal protective equipment and establishing clear exclusion zones, are paramount during felling operations to prevent accidents. Additionally, proper disposal or utilization of felled trees and adhering to local regulations regarding tree removal are important considerations in sustainable practices across Milton Keynes, Northampton and surrounding areas.
