CROWN LIFTING
Maidstone Tree Services is able to selectively remove the lower branches of a tree in order to give plants on the ground much needed light.

By crown lifting your trees it enables any other plants under the tree to get much needed light. Some branches might just be a little below head height and need removing. Also by crown lifting, it stops fungi from growing underneath the tree as it allows better sunlight and air circulation.

Crown lifting is the selective removal of the lower branches of a trees crown to increase the distance between the base of the canopy and ground level.

DEAD WOODING
All trees grow and mature. At some stage limbs will naturally die off. When this happens the tree will shed them. Although a natural process, in populated areas, this is unsafe. Dead wooding is the process of selectively removing the dead, dying and damaged branches from the tree which have not yet fallen to prevent possible damage to surrounding areas and people.
 
Maidstone Tree Services are well aware of the ecological benefits of dead wood within trees.  We will therefore assess whether the dead wood does in fact need to be removed. It is, on occasion, possible to preserve the tree and limbs without it posing a risk to the public.

HEDGE CUTTING

Maidstone Tree Services maintains hedges throughout Kent and the South East.

Keep your hedges looking neat and tidy with a regular cut. Ideally twice a year for a full and healthy look.

We have a very good reputation for working to high standards in order to maintain the shape and quality of every hedge.  Many of our clients ask us to return each year.

Tree Felling Kent

TREE FELLING

Here at Maidstone Tree Services we plan tree felling very carefully.  Trees must be felled safely and in the direction required. We will make assessments of the surrounding area, i.e. whether there are major obstacles in the area (overhead lines, roads and buildings, etc.), proximity to traffic and the public before determining that felling is appropriate. If necessary, we will also ensure the use of sufficient warning signs, barrier tape and cones before commencing any felling.


TREE BRACING

Maidstone Tree Services are able to install extra high strength steel cables and brace rods.  These are additional structural supports which help to reduce the risk of failure of weak branches and multiple stems. Cables are attached to bolts which are installed in the upper crown of a tree. They are intended to limit the movement of the supported branches so they are less likely to fail during storms. Braces are threaded rods that provide more rigid support, especially forces that can occur in violent weather. 

POLLARDING

The process of pollarding maintains your trees at a predetermined height by removing the upper branches to promote a dense head of foliage.

By regularly pollarding trees, they tend to grow slower and live longer as they are maintained in a partial juvenile state and do not have so much weight at the top of  the tree. This also enables them to be more resilient in harsh winds.
