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.

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 - Do It Yourself

Pruning a cherry tree is different than pruning other fruit trees.

Pruning most fruit trees is fairly simple. The end result should be a funnel allow equal amounts of sunlight to reach all the branches and in turn the fruit as it grows, promoting healthy growth and maturity of the individual fruits. Trimming a cherry tree is different, here's how...

Although the theory is the same, the end shape is different. It is sometimes described as a scaffolding, ladder or layers. In other words, all of the main producing branches should stick out perpendicular from the trunk, like a "T". The first layer starting 2" prime; -3" prime; from the ground and then additional branching at 2" prime; intervals all the way to the top. Like other fruit trees this allows equal amounts of sunlight to reach the fruit, thought the shape is different. It also increases air flow, which is important for optimal cherry growth.

Special Note: Never prune more than 25% of the tree except in very specific and rare cases.

When should I prune my cherry tree?

In a health region, free of silver leaf disease, pruning and trimming should be done in late winter just before the cherry tree starts to bud. If silver leaf disease is prevalent in your area then it is best to trim in the summer at the first sign of the disease.

Be sure to know the kind of cherry tree you have as some cherry trees require a slightly different approach. Especially varieties of ornamental cherry trees.

Tree Trimming Costs - What Factors In?

tree falling

Trees are beautiful things, but there are lots of times a tree needs to be removed. Either the tree is dead, diseased or is simply in the way of whatever landscaping or building plans you've got in mind. There are a few ways to have a tree removed, but the safest, sanest way to do it is to have a professional tree removal service do the work. Not only are they professionals, but they have insurance in case something does go wrong. Fortunately, there is little chance of that happening with a professional company.

The first step in the process is to have them come out and give you an estimate on the cost. There are a few things you'll want to watch for when they give you an estimate to ensure they are a top tier company that will protect you while completing the job.

  • The first part of the estimate will be limb removal. This will have to be done in most cases, especially if the tree that has to be removed is close to a structure.
  • The next part is felling the tree. This can be as simple as a straight drop in a fairly open area, but it may actually involve cutting the tree down in sections and a crane may be needed to lower the pieces as they're cut. This technique is necessary when there's no way to drop the tree due to structures or power and phone lines.
  • After that will be an estimate on stump removal. Most of the time this will be necessary if you're removing the tree as a function of building or landscaping. However, any stump can be unsightly and professional companies will use a grinder to cut it below the surface of the ground so you can cover it with topsoil or turf.
  • Last will be disposal of the tree. This may be eliminated if you're using the tree for firewood and the mulch around your yard as landscaping material. However, professional companies have resources to have the tree recycled.

You'll also want to check and make sure they state they're insured. Even under the best of circumstances, things can happen and professional tree removal companies are well insured. When you've got to have a tree removed, take your time and find the company that has the equipment and credentials to take care of the job properly. You'll be glad you did.
