What is it?
Arguably one of our most important services is deadwooding: removing the branches or limbs of a tree that have died.
There are many reasons dead wood should be cut from the tree, including:
- Maintaining health and safety for everyone
Dead branches and limbs can break or fall off, especially during periods of high winds and storms. This can pose a risk to people walking underneath, to wildlife, and to the health of the tree, too – because rot can set in and spread to otherwise-unaffected areas.
- Saving the tree’s life
If deadwood is left unattended, it attracts pests and diseases, which are harmful to the tree and environment around it.
- Retaining the tree’s appearance
As you can imagine, dead wood is not attractive. It can also reduce the amount of light passing through the branches.
