Edinburgh Tree Pruning

Pruning is primarily meant for shrubs and trees. As well as for shaping the tree pruning is designed to protect the tree. Pruning at the right times of year and being able to remoe dead branches can keep the tree safe as well as helping it to grow and prosper. If you want your trees to be healthy for the long term its always a good idea to consult with a qualified arborist to see what the best pruning and maintenance program is.

Our tree pruning specialists are highly skilled and have pruned hundreds if not thousands of trees over the years. They’ve accumulated decades of experience and know what it takes to keep a tree healthy. Infected branches may be removed and trees can be shaped for aesthetics, light penetration or to reduce wind loading. As such, the aesthetic purpose or beauty of the tree is not incompatible with tree pruning for tree health.

On smaller branches hand shears and lopping shears are safer and leave cleaner healthier cuts than chainsaws. However for large branches and when working on branches which will support the climber’s weight the chainsaw is the only option.

Depending on the tree species, and the local environment tree pruning may be done annually. The best seasons are often winter or spring. But exact timing will depend on the type of tree and the weather that year.

Crown Reduction and Crown Thining will increase structural stability and improve airflow between the tree branches. Sunlight penetration is key to your tree’s health and the beauty of your outside spaces! This also helps to allow your tree to dry quicker in order to stay safe from insects and other pests. Strong winds and heavy rains will be less likely to damage your trees if they are pruned regularly too.

Climbing Tree Pruning in Scotland’s Central Belt

Wherever possible a mobile elevated work platform will be used but access and the size of the trees often makes this impractical. Out climbing arborists and tree surgeons use advanced tree climbing techniques to perform tree pruning and tree trimming . We climb high into the trees with ropes in order to control precisely the tree pruning process and lowering of tree sections to avoid damage to healthy branches, the tree itself and property nearby.

Using less heavy equipment also minimizes our footprint, and means no tire tracks on your garden and no damage to healthy plants and growth in the area.

Using the right tree climbing methods improves the safety of everyone involved and the efficiency of the service performed. Our arborists are certified tree climbers who know how to perform tree pruning so as to be as safe as possible for the tree, people and property.

Cutting is minimized as much as possible most of the time so as not to damage the healthy parts of the tree. It is better to pinpoint the areas that need pruning instead of performing indiscriminate pruning. This is where the knowledge of our Arborists is so important.
