Crown Thinning & Reductions
Crown Thinning and Reductions may be necessary at some point in a tree’s life to encourage its healthy growth. When carrying out Crown Thinning the arborist selectively removes branches, increasing the levels of sunlight penetrating the crown and improving the circulation of air through the tree.
Crown Cleaning / Dead Wooding
The removal of deadwood is often necessary for trees that have suffered storm damage, from higher foliage shadowing lower branches or through previous “lopping” activities.
Conifer hedges are at their most attractive when pruned to form a dense leafy coverage. To achieve a desirable hedge it is necessary for it to be pruned in the correct manner with long shoots holding insufficient side branches being pruned to encourage the denser side branches.
We provide a full tree and shrub planting service from small trees through to semi mature, either as bare root stock or as containerised plants. We have long standing relationships with a number of local nurseries and we can help you choose the best species for your site.
Franks Forestry Contractors Limited will remove any remaining visible signs of a stump.
We can provide you with an impartial tree survey, comprehensive written tree reports, free and detailed estimates for any remedial work required and a professional, punctual and polite service.
