Glasgow keeps her tree surgeons very busy. In Glasgow tree pruning and the trimming back or removal of branches is important for lowering wind loading, and allowing light penetration from the precious sunshine we sometimes get. Pruning and trimming can sometimes be carried out from the ground with small trees or for the lower sections of large trees. But usually throughout Glasgow tree pruning & tree trimming will be carried out by a specialist type of tree surgeon who can climb the tree with ropes and a harness carrying his chainsaw with him.
Sometimes a mobile elevating work platform (MEWP) can be used but usually to do a good job a climber tree surgeon is needed to reach inside the tree canopy.

Safe Sectional Tree Dismantling
When pruning large branches and tree sections the tree branches and limbs can be cut after securing them with ropes so that they can be lowered safely to the ground without damaging buildings, property or lawns on the way down.
Best To Prune Early
If pruning is left until a tree is too big for the space it’s in, then the tree can often be left too bare or too tall. The earlier in a trees life that shaping starts, the better.
