    What is the tree cutting service?

    There are lots of different tree cutting services that Goodfellers provide. We can remove trees entirely or we can prune them. Pruning a tree means removing branches for the benefit of the entire tree. Sometimes there are dead or diseased branches on a tree so these need to be removed. Another reason branches are often removed is to increase the flow of air in a space or to increase the amount of sunlight. A lack of air flow or sunshine can cause problems of disease in trees. There are different kinds of pruning. Crown reduction means that the height and width of the tree are made smaller. This is done when a tree might be growing too large and is in danger of touching properties or overhead cables for example. Crown thinning means the removal of some branches and foliage to allow more light into a garden and to increase air flow. This can also protect the tree from storm damage. Crown raising means the lowest branches of a tree are removed to improve the light in a garden. Goodfellers will assess your trees and provide you with details on what sort of tree cutting service is needed for your garden.
