Yorkshire Tree Contractors

Our Services

Tree Surgery – Experts performing tree pruning and trimming services make it seem easy, but there is so much more to it than just cutting here and there. While some tasks can be done on your own using your pruners and saws, most of them are best left to the pros. According to the experts, the right pruning and trimming has to do with what portions to cut, how much, and when to do it.

Tree Removal – People take out trees for a number of reasons – as a landscaping requirement, if they are precariously reaching the electric lines or if they are dead. Whatever the reason may be, calling a tree removal expert is the best thing to do. Though you can easily chop down the tree with a chainsaw, you may lack the knowledge on how to do it properly, which could cause injury to yourself, your family or damage to your home.

Tree Felling – Is more than just cutting a V into the trunk in the direction you want the tree to fall. Amongst other things an arborist will take into consideration the shape and weight distribution of the tree. In a fairly open area it can be as simple as a straight drop, but a lot of the time felling a tree can involve dismantling the tree in sections and using ropes or a crane to lower the pieces to the ground safely as they are cut.

Stump Removal – If you have been left with a stump in your garden not only can it be hazardous, it can also look unsightly,and be taking gardening space which you could put to better use. Having the stump removed will prevent suckers being produced from the stump and it can also prevent the spread of disease. Using a stump grinder we will grind the stump and the surface roots so that they are well below ground level.This will allow you to either replant the area or use it for anything you want.

Crown Lifting, Thinning, Reduction and Reshaping – By utilising these services we can transform your tree. With crown lifting and thinning we will remove the lowest branches on the tree and reduce the density of the tree this then allows more light and space under the tree as well as allowing more light through the tree while still retaining a healthy and balanced branch structure. Crown reduction and reshaping is usually used to reduce the height and crown area of the tree so that it not only prevents the tree from interfering with obstacles such as utility cables, but also creates a better appearance.

Tree Contractors – When trees are not looked after properly not only will they no longer look their best, they can also pose danger to your family and your property. Your best course of action is to employ the services of a local tree contractor. Apart from tree removal and tree felling  we also offer a number of other services for both our residential and commercial customers. Other services we offer include: tree planting and tree maintenance, mulching services, stump grinding.

Tree Trimming Costs - What Factors In?

Experts performing tree pruning and trimming services make it seem easy, but there is so much more to it than just cutting here and there. While some tasks can be done on your own using your pruners and saws, most of them are best left to the pros. According to the experts, the right pruning and trimming has to do with what portions to cut, how much, and when to do it.

The terms trimming and pruning are often interchangeably used to denote cutting trees, but for clarification, just remember trimming has to do with grooming. Pruning has to do with the tree's health, as well as the safety of people and structures near the tree.

Cutting Classifications

People have tree pruning and trimming services for four general classifications, two of which have to do with trimming and the others related to pruning. The first, trimming or fine pruning, entails cutting to improve the tree's appearance. The second, standard pruning, involves more cutting to improve the tree's structure.

The third, safety pruning or hazard pruning, is one where branches are removed because of safety considerations. When branches hang too low causing any danger, those trees are pruned. The fourth, crown reduction, involves removing the branches on the tops or sides of trees. This is usually done to prevent trees from reaching utility lines or damaging roofs, and to allow air and sunlight to reach the inner branches.

Pruning the Right Way

Tree pruning and trimming services, when done by trained professionals, ensure that your trees are pruned correctly and efficiently. If you intend to do the pruning on your own, refrain from using climbing spurs, which can damage tree trunks and barks. See to it that the barks on the edges of the pruning cuts are still attached firmly. As for large, heavy branches, make sure to cut them in sections to prevent the bark from tearing or splitting. Remember to use ropes to lower the large branches do not throw them to the ground.

Pruning the Right Time

You can have tree pruning and trimming services at any time of the year these services depend on the kinds of trees you have. Flowering trees that bloom in spring can be trimmed or pruned right after they flowering. Those that bloom in summer have to be pruned in early spring. It is recommended to prune fruit-bearing trees during late winter to give them shape and allow sunlight to shine on the tree's center.

Hardwood trees or shrubs without flowers are best pruned in the dormant season, during late fall or winter. As for dead branches, these can be cut at any time of the year.

Tree Pruning and Trimming Services from the Experts

Cutting tree branches is not as simple as it appears. It is a risky situation that, without the proper tools and equipment, can lead to accidents. When doing the pruning and trimming yourself, make sure to fasten yourself to a tree using at least two secure points. Work with someone who will raise the cutting tools to you. Keep yourself protected with gloves, safety glasses, and a hard hat.

Tree Trimming Austin - The Importance of Pruning

For those unsure what it costs to remove a tree, the overall size of the tree is a major factor in the cost of removal. Trees that grows enormous in length and width for instance pine and red oak is going to have a high removal cost. Many companies will charge differently, however, the cost will probably be $500 or somewhat higher. This cost shouldn't exceed $1000 for each tree. Medium sized trees are ones that will grow from 30-60 feet high such as black gum and Crabapple trees. The price of tree cutting will be around $200 and $400. With smaller trees i.e. those growing 30 feet and below, the removal fees are from $120.

There are numerous signs that you can check to determine that the tree trunk is decaying as well. If there's red dust along the bottom of the tree, it might be an indication that your tree is decaying. If your trunk is decaying, you will see bugs and mushrooms growing throughout the bottom of the tree. Insects and fungus will feed on dead and rotting matter and their presence is undoubtedly an indication that the tree has some dead matter. You may also inspect the trunk for any visible signs of decay. Dead tree bark, wounds and discolored areas are all negative signs of a rotting tree. Some could have significant cracks that you can actually see inside the trunk. Hollowed out trunks may be a clear sign that the trunk is bad so this normally requires the tree to get removed fast enough before it may cause any harm to your building. You will also see some weak trees that are connected to the floor by some weakened roots and should be removed soon enough.

If you want to remove trees and you just don't know how much it will cost you, you will need to have a rough estimate to ensure that you are not overcharged. Removal cost for a small tree is normally $8 each foot. Therefore if you want to remove a small tree that is 20 feet high, the estimated tree removal cost is $8 multiplied by 20. Therefore, the tree removal cost will be around $160. If you've got a medium tree whose height is 50 feet high, the cost of removal will probably be $9 multiplied by 50. Therefore, the price of removing this tree will probably be close to $450. If you have a big tree that's 90 feet tall, the estimated cost will be $10 multiplied by 90. This will provide you with a projected tree removal price of $900.

Choosing the right tree removal service is important to make certain you as well as your property are well protected. Therefore, you need to ensure that you make a good choice of the tree removal service. You'll want to go for a respected company to begin this work. To find a reputable company, you could get referrals through friends that has used this kind of service before. You can even check from the internet to what other folks have to say about different tree removal companies. Even though it is very important to think about cost, the main key to consider will be the quality of service first. You will need to ensure that the tree removal service you opt for is fully registered and has taken the appropriate insurance policy. Deciding on a good company will assure that your odds of any damages for the duration of tree removal are reduced.
