Pruning of Tree Canopies and Roots

At the Arbor Centre, we understand the need to manage both the canopy and roots of trees in order to maintain the well-being and safety of the tree and the protection of people and the surrounding structures.

Canopy Pruning

Our qualified and trained arborists work with customers to help address common issues associated with the aesthetics and general management of tree(s) at residential properties. 

These may include:

  • Controlling tree canopy height and spread
  • Managing tree risk to people and/or property
  • Raising or reducing tree foliage over gardens, lawns, roofs and structures
  • Dead wood removal
  • Load reduction of canopies in instances where tree health and safety may be of concern
  • Weight reduction of specific branches
  • Thinning of canopies to improve light penetration
  • Managing shade
  • Canopy restoration (from inherited circumstance)
  • Formative pruning to improve juvenile tree performance and longevity
  • Remedial pruning to improve canopy structure
  • Reduction of leaf litter issues
  • Property Line clearances

Root Pruning

In order to help address common issues associated with tree roots, we have trained members of our Green Surgery team who work with customers to resolve root related problems.

The less complex scenario’s may include:

  • Addressing trip hazards
  • Root intrusions (into lawns, services, structures, reticulation)
  • Lifting and cracking of pavements and hard surfaces
  • The integrity of boundary and/or retaining walls

For more complex scenarios, including ways to proactively protect structures prior to escalation of the concern, or to avoid excessive future costs and safety risks, we can refer customers to our specialist Surface and Subsoil division.

Outstanding people with excellent understanding of felling very large trees. I have a beautiful garden full of large trees, that attract very tuneful birdlife. The Arbor Centre has looked after them wonderfully for a very long time. (RR)
