Sometimes trees need to be felled. There can be many reasons for this, and they include disease and decay, roots disrupting foundations, or you possibly just want to make a change to your garden.
This process is usually carried out when a tree needs to be reduced in size. This involves reducing the canopy by a percentage with the aim of creating more light for the surrounding areas.
This is a technique carried out for trees with excessive growth in the canopy. Another reason for this process is to let more natural light through.
Removal of Dead Wood
To remove medium to large dead branches that pose a danger of falling on people or property below.
Specified Limb Removal
For whatever a tree limb may need removing we can carry this out safely with either lowering techniques or simply cut and hold.
Crown Lifting of Trees
This procedure in a garden setting is usually to enable more light to get into the area below. It is also very important when trees grow over paths or roads. The Highway Act of 1980 states that there must be a clearance of at least 2.3 metres over footpath and cycle tracks, and a clearance of 5.3 metres on roads.
This is a pruning system in which the entire canopy is removed, prompting a dense foliage growth.

CLEARANCE & MAINTENANCE SERVICE
Chainsaws can only go to ground level, this is when the stump grinder takes over. Sometimes the grinding out of stumps is not necessary, but if you want to replant in the same spot it is necessary.
An alternative to grinding, these caps can be inserted into the stump to kill any chance of it growing back.
Tree and Vegetation Clearance
Whether it be for development or just starting your garden again, Ox Tree Surgeons can clear any size space of trees and other vegetation.
