Trees are occasionally not salvageable and become dead, dying or dangerous and need to come down. Sometimes they can be in precarious positions and need careful and sensitive dismantling. Here at Sequoia tree care we pride ourselves on care and attention to each individual situation using modern lowering systems to avoid damage to surroundings.
Pollarding is a pruning method that keeps a tree a smaller then they would naturally grow by reducing the limbs into larger junctions and stopping it from outgrowing its surrounding area.
Reductions are used to contain the crown (top) of the tree and to keep the tree from outgrowing its surroundings. It is very important to keep the tree looking natural and that the branches are taken back to the correct growth points to promote healthy growth. Picture above is a Yew tree (Taxus baccata) in mid reduction

In this procedure you remove the lower branches to give the crown (top) of the tree. It increases the distance between the base of the canopy and ground level and is useful in preventing damage to neighboring walls, fences or roofs and for allowing lower light into your garden and property.
This is the removal of a portion of smaller branches, usually at the outer crown to produce a uniform density of foliage around an evenly spaced branch structure. It is usually confined to broad-leaved species. Crown thinning does not alter the overall size or shape of the tree.
