What we can do

Pro Climb provide a number of services commercial and domestic. Our tree surgeons, balance, fell, pollard, thin, prune trees to ensure that they grow into a solid structure of the surrounding vegetation. By making sensitive modifications to trees in residential, commercial or construction areas they can avoid short lived lives and continue to grow and add to our world.

Thinning

Thinning is an operation that artificially reduces the number of trees growing in a stand with the aim of hastening the development of the remainder. The goal of thinning is to control the amount and distribution of available growing space. By altering stand density, foresters can influence the growth, quality, and health of residual trees. It also provides an opportunity to capture mortality and cull the commercially less desirable, usually smaller and malformed, trees. Unlike regeneration treatments, thinnings are not intended to establish a new tree crop or create permanent canopy openings.

Storm Damage

To minimize the damage that can be caused by gale force winds, assess your property after heavy storms. If a tree is badly bowed down do not attempt to alter the position of the tree. Fallen trees are very unstable and can weigh tones. The safest way to remove a tree that has landed on or near your property is to hire a trained professional with the tools and experience to strategically remove these hazards.

Pruning

Pruning is a horticultural and silvicultural practice involving the selective removal of parts of a plant, such as branches, buds, or roots. Reasons to prune plants include deadwood removal, shaping (by controlling or directing growth) improving or maintaining health, reducing risk from falling branches, preparing nursery specimens for transplanting, and both harvesting and increasing the yield or quality of flowers and fruits. The practice entails targeted removal of diseased, damaged, dead, non-productive, structurally unsound, or otherwise unwanted tissue from crop and landscape plants.

Pollarding

Pollarding is a pruning system in which the upper branches of a tree are removed, promoting a dense head of foliage and branches. It has been common in Europe since medieval times and is practised today in urban areas worldwide, primarily to maintain trees at a predetermined height. Traditionally, trees were pollarded for one of two reasons: for fodder to feed livestock, or for wood. Fodder pollards produced “pollard hay”, which was used as livestock feed; they were pruned at intervals of two to six years so their leafy material would be most abundant. 

Balancing

Balancing a tree is making cuts to the branches to create a balanced shape. Many trees react differently when their branches are balanced and it is crucial for the life of the tree that it is done properly by a professional that has experience in knowing the detailed surgery involved. The danger in balancing a tree without understanding its nature could cause it to slowly rot and eventually die altogether.

Felling

Felling is the process of downing individual trees, an element of the task of logging. The person cutting the trees is a feller. In hand felling, an axe, saw, or chainsaw is used to fell a tree, followed up by limbing, bucking in traditional applications. In the modern commercial logging industry, felling is typically followed by limbing and skidding.

Limbing – removes branches from the stem of a fallen tree.

Bucketing – cuts a felled and delimbed tree into logs.

Skidding – how logs are transported from the cutting site to a landing.

Deadwooding

As a tree matures it is completely natural for it to produce dead and dying wood. The general process of “dead wooding” is to remove dead, dying and diseased branches through out the crown. The simply purpose of this is to make what’s known as the impact area (directly beneath the trees canopy) a safer environment to be in, so there is no chance of any limb shedding or falling from the trees canopy. Only a trained professional should attempt to selectively remove branches from a tree.

Rejuvenation

Rejuvenation is the process of renovating older trees  through judicious and properly selected pruning cuts. Apple and pear trees are most easily renovated. Cherries also can be renovated, but to a lesser degree and with less success. Peaches and nectarines are not recommended for renovation, and are not considered here. It is easier to cut a peach tree down and plant a new tree.

Formative Pruning

Formative pruning is the initial pruning of a young tree to develop a balanced shape with strong branches that will support heavy fruit crops. The aim is to develop an open, balanced network of strong, unshaded branches above the height of grazing livestock and machinery. Prune trees to the shape and style of those found locally. The amount of pruning will vary according to the variety and rootstock of the fruit tree. Stone fruits do not respond as well to continuous pruning and should be pruned as little as possible.

Tractor Hedge Cutting

These machines consist of a moveable arm (hydraulic boom) with a large hedge trimmer attachment at its end. Their cutting mechanism is similar to that of finger-bar mowers. Such large hedge trimmers are often confused with tractor-mounted (flail mower / reach flail mowers / booms with flail mower attachments), which appear similar due to the use of booms. And in colloquial language both, tractor-mounted hedge trimmers and reach flail mowers, are called  rather imprecisely ‘hedge cutters’ or ‘brush cutters’.
