Tree Squadron offer a variety of tree pruning techniques to suit any species and size of tree in Cardiff and the surrounding areas. We routinely carry out crown reductions and reshaping, crown lifting, pollarding and thinning.

We will discuss the species of tree you have and how it responds to pruning. If incorrect pruning is carried out this can have a long lasting effect on your tree’s health and at worse, can cause it to die. Pruning can reduce long heavy limbs to relive pressure and reduce the “sail factor” or the overall size of the tree back to healthy growth points. A dense canopy can be thinned to allow more light through to your property. Correct pruning stimulates healthy growth and when done well, it should be hard to tell that the tree has been worked on. Trees that receive formative pruning at the right time will require less corrective pruning as they mature.
