Correct tree maintenance is essential to decrease the chances of falling branches and potential damage to your property. It will ensure in times such as storms or heavy wind; you are minimising the potential damage that could occur. Our professional tree surgery service will ensure your trees are both aesthetically pleasing and increase their longevity.

The benefits of tree surgery in Sudbury

Tree surgery is an invaluable service for people living in Sudbury, providing them with a wealth of benefits. From the safety aspect of reducing branch overhangs that could cause damage to a property to increasing the value of a home due to improved aesthetics of your garden or landscape, tree surgery comes with many advantages. 

Tree surgery is an important and challenging task with which we have vast experience. It requires a great deal of knowledge and skill to understand the biology of trees, their productive life cycles, signs of health adversity, and how to take care of them properly. The process typically begins with an assessment phase to understand the tree’s current status, followed by using appropriate pruning and trimming tools and removing any diseased or damaged branches where necessary. Afterwards, healthcare, such as disease treatment or fertilisation, might be recommended. We will assess the condition and then act accordingly to extend the trees’ lifespan while minimising environmental disruption in a safe manner.

Tree Felling in Sudbury

If you require a tree to be cut down, Sudbury Tree Surgeons are here to help. We have been removing trees throughout Suffolk for many years and have the necessary skills to ensure that all works are completed on time and to the highest possible standard. There can be multiple reasons a tree requires felling, from access for construction works to be carried out to safety reasons or just general landscape upkeep. No matter why we are always here to undertake residential and commercial tree-felling projects.

What is tree felling?

Tree felling is performed by one of our dedicated arborists with years of experience and knowledge in understanding tree structures and best practices for removing them from their locations. Tree felling techniques involve either delimbing a tree or directly cutting the trunk. These techniques require specialised equipment such as chainsaws, chippers or winches, depending on the size and condition of the tree being removed. 

Trees need to be felled responsibly to minimise soil erosion and habitat destruction. This means preserving surrounding trees, plants and wildlife while only removing what is necessary to create the desired outcome.

The process of tree felling

At Sudbury Tree Surgeons, we are experts in tree felling. We’ll carefully assess the environment to evaluate various factors such as the species of tree, nearby hazards, and the clearance required for safe removal. We will then begin cutting down the tree precisely using specialised chainsaws, hand tools or machinery to ensure no additional damage occurs. Once the tree has been felled, we will remove it from site either in sections or by using our specialist chipping machine. We can completely remove the stump left over using our high-powered stump grinding machine, leaving you with a blank canvas.

Reasons to fell your trees

Felling trees can be an essential part of taking care of your property. Whether you’re preparing for a construction project or looking to improve the appearance and health of your garden and surroundings, the operatives at Sudbury Tree Surgeons are equipped with the knowledge, experience and equipment necessary to remove any unwanted trees entirely. Additionally, regular maintenance from expert arborists helps ensure the safety and strength of surrounding trees by identifying potential hazards such as deadwood and misaligned branches. 

For those looking to maximise their land’s potential, felling trees can open up sunlit spaces that are difficult to reach and maintain. Beyond making room for new planting beds or outdoor features like patios, removing selected trees can make room for more usable green space. No matter what reasons you have for considering felling your trees, it’s important to consult experts before proceeding with your plans so that you can make informed decisions about their removal. We offer Free surveys and will be happy to discuss your needs at a convenient time.

Crown Reduction in Sudbury

If your tree appears to be ‘top heavy,’ a crown reduction could be the perfect solution. Over time the canopy of a tree can get out of control, leading to the tree becoming potentially unsafe in heavy wind or storms. Also, it can lead to it encroaching onto neighbours’ boundaries or even being too close to your home or powerlines. At Sudbury Tree Surgeons, we can carry out the best crown reduction in the area, ensuring your trees look amazing.

Crown reduction (or lifting) is a technique we use to decrease the overall density and size of your tree. It is a process that will help improve the trees’ overall health by allowing newly exposed branches to gain more exposure to light and air. Using crown reduction techniques on certain trees, such as maples, can also help reduce their sap production. At Sudbury Tree Surgeons, we have the experience and ability to care for all your crown thinning needs throughout Sudbury.

At Sudbury Tree Surgeons, our highly-trained experts are dedicated to providing our customers with the highest quality of service. When performing a crown reduction, we always strive to retain the natural aesthetic beauty of the tree while removing any dead or diseased branches. We will usually begin by gaining an overall view of the tree crown and then prune back extensively to thin out any dense areas. We also perform intentional shaping to balance out a lopsided crown. Depending on the situation, we may also insert metal frameworks (such as copper rods or braces) into strategic points and pruning techniques to create more volume and achieve the desired shape. As specialist tree surgeons, you can always trust us to ensure your treen crown lifting needs are taken care of quickly and efficiently.

After crown reduction, ensuring your trees are kept healthy and safe is a top priority. It’s essential to immediately address any newly exposed areas of the tree, especially where branches have been removed, as these spots are more prone to infection. Firstly, it’s vital that all cuts made to the tree during the crown reduction process are correctly sealed using a pruning sealer or wound dressing. If applicable, mulch should be applied around the base of the tree and any other exposed areas of the root system – this will help protect against weed growth and provide insulation and resource availability to keep your tree in good condition. Finally, bacterial diseases must be monitored during the following few years. If you suspect your tree may be suffering from infection or disease, contact Sudbury Tree Surgeons as soon as possible so we can come by and offer an expert diagnosis.

For all your crown reduction needs, Sudbury Tree Surgeons are here to help. We will work with you to determine if crown reduction is the right solution for your tree and then walk you through the process so that you know what to expect. After we are finished, we will provide you with aftercare instructions so that you can keep your tree healthy and happy for years to come. Give us a call today to schedule a free site survey.

Stump grinding in Sudbury

Tree stumps are both unsightly and can prevent an area of land from being used as effectively as if the stump were absent. If you are looking for tree stump removal in Sudbury, we can help. We use the latest stump removal machines to make light work of removing that unattractive stump! Our operatives have decades of experience with stump removal and know precisely how to remove it both quickly and efficiently.

Our stump grinding machines work by a high-speed spinning blade cutting deep into the tree stump, which then creates wood chips; doing this repeatedly allows us to totally remove it, leaving you with a clean surface for you to be able to start your next project with.

Tree stumps can be difficult to remove with conventional means, such as manual digging or introducing poisons which is not good practice. Our stump grinding equipment has cutting blades that grind the wood extremely quickly. The power of these machines enables our operatives to grind away at the stump until it is gone, leaving behind nothing but wood chips. It’s an effective and environmentally friendly way of removing an old stump without causing any damage to your property, thus making it a popular choice for many of our residential and commercial clients.

At Sudbury Tree Surgeons, our operatives offer only the very best stump grinding services to the local Suffolk community.
