Description – removing lower branches increasing the vertical height clearance beneath the trees canopy

When a tree becomes bottom heavy (this means the lower part becomes thick and unruly) you need to lift the ‘crown’ to help with access and the natural development of the tree as it ages. Stara Tree Contractors provide ‘crown lifting’ services throughout Yorkshire. Our team will assess how heavy the tree is at the lower parts and then remove the base elements to effectively raise the profile of the tree. With over 15 years experience providing both residential and commercial clients with crown lifting services we are the experts in the removal of lower branches. We understand that the removal needs to be carefully and thoughtful to the natural look and feel of the tree, this means we take a step back and shape it according to the surroundings and natural appearance of the trees in the area.

Pollarding is a technique used by tree surgeons to take the stress off your tree.
​To pollard a tree means to remove the entire crown of the tree right down to the main fork of the trunk. If your tree has significant die back in the canopy, pollarding it would give the tree a good chance of survival as it will not have to pump water and nutrients into a canopy. This means that the roots are not working as hard and the tree itself is more relaxed. Call or email Stara Tree Contractors for all of your pollarding requirements
