Your Local Tree Care Specialists

Dead Wood Pruning

Deadwood on a tree is a natural part of the growth cycle and doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with the tree.  But removing this deadwood is a crucial part of maintaining a tree and encourages strong and healthy growth. It makes the tree safer too. 

As a tree grows, it is natural that some of the wood will die off. Sometimes it could be the first sign of decay, but more likely it is just part of the natural life cycle. 

We’ll come along to your home or commercial premises and undertake a full assessment of the tree, checking that the deadwood is not a symptom of a disease.  Once we’ve established how much deadwood needs to be removed and ascertained the causes, we can get to work on deadwood pruning. 

 Deadwood can be heavy and prove to be a risk as it could fall from the tree unexpectedly. Wood that is no longer living quickly becomes weak and brittle. If left unattended it will fall and could, therefore, pose a risk of injury to people or damage to property.

Oak Tree Dead Wood Pruning

 The English oak is probably the best-known tree in Britain and definitely the most common. Officially known by its Latin name as Quercus Robur, oak trees regularly grow in excess of 20 meters and sometimes up to 40 meters. The fact they grow so tall and have expansive canopies supported by strong branches is not an issue, as our in-depth experience in oak trees.

Willow Tree Hedge Dead Wood Pruning

There are around 400 species of the willow tree, known in Latin as Salix meaning ‘sallow’. When mature, willow trees grow to around 10 meters tall and have long lifespans up to 300 years. 

Conifer Tree Hedge Dead Wood Pruning

Conifer trees are well known for growing to soar heights, sometimes up to 100 meters. Of the Latin Pinophyta, there are many different types of conifer including yew, pine, cypress, and Douglas fir.

Eucalyptus Tree Hedge Dead Wood Pruning

The eucalyptus tree is an evergreen variety that benefits from expert attention including coppicing and pollarding. Providing they are regularly pruned, eucalyptus trees can be suitable for small gardens, but left unkempt they will grow to quite a height and even in normal conditions, they will easily shed bark and branches. If you have a eucalyptus tree it is important to have any dead wood removed regularly and if the tree has grown quite big it is a good idea to have it trimmed. 

Cherry Tree Hedge Dead Wood Pruning

Cherry belongs to the Prunus group of trees and there are various fruit bearing species across Europe.

Ash Tree Dead Wood Pruning

Often reaching heights of around 35 meters, the ash tree is known for being tall and elegant, and it is common for them to grow together so that a domed canopy forms. 

Plum Tree Dead Wood Pruning

The plum tree comes from the family known as Prunus Domestica, which also produces damson and greengages. Plum trees are not native to the UK but are still fairly common. They do not grow very tall and are characterized by straight branches and spiny twigs. If you have a plum tree that needs deadwood pruning, we can help.

Despite the unusual shape,
