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: The Different Tools That Are Used For The Job

Although stump-grinding machines are popular in use, the tree stump removal chemical option is fine. Those who decide to buy or to hire the grinders have to use them to reduce the stump below the ground level. The chemical users on the other hand must simply read the instructions properly before use. The chemicals are many and they work differently. If you want to discover more about them, simply search the Internet. Some really big and reliable stores like Amazon do not only stock the products. They offer product features, descriptions and post customer reviews.

All you have to do before buying any stump removal chemical anywhere is reading more about it. Seek to know how the chemical works, and why many people think it is the best chemical there is. Compare the product information and the type of stumps you intend to remove. You do not have to perform gardening or any other constructive activity when stumps are all over the place. Simply pour the chemicals on the stumps to decay them quick. If you wait for some hardwoods' stumps to decay naturally, this will take many years. Since there are many chemicals existing for this task, only three types will serve as good examples in this article:

It does not even explode, as you apply it to the stump. Simply follow instructions when applying this tree stump removal chemical, which is dry and granular. Follow the instructions closely if you choose to buy any other chemical than the styles described above. Make sure to purchase only those products you are sure of their strength, safety and effectiveness.
