Proudly Serving Customers in the South West
Utilising over 15 years’ experience, Indi Tree Surgery & Landscaping South West LTD offers you high-quality tree surgeons to ensure your job is completed professionally and to the highest standard.
Our team’s experience means that we are able to provide a vast array of services, from rigging to pollarding we work to your specifications to ensure all your needs are met.
Pollarding is an intricate pruning system, with our team removing the upper branches of a tree. This action promotes a dense head of foliage and branches.
Crown lifting is the removal of the lowest branches and/or preparing of lower branches for future removal.
Our Good practice dictates that crown lifting should not normally include the removal of large branches growing directly from the trunk, as this may cause large wounds and become extensively decayed leading to further long-term problems.
Crown lifting on older, mature trees should be avoided or restricted to secondary branches or shortening of primary branches rather than the whole removal wherever possible.
Our crown lifting is an effective method of increasing light transmission to areas closer to the tree or to enable access under the crown.
Our crown reduction involves the decreasing of the trees crown height and/or spread.
Crown reduction is used to reduce mechanical stress on individual branches or the whole tree, and make the tree more suited to its immediate environment or to reduce the effects of shading and light loss.
Our final result ensures that the main framework of the crown is maintained, and so a significant proportion of the leaf-bearing structure.
This process involves our team bringing down an individual tree, to begin the process of the tree being removed.
Our expert team has two professional methods in how to fell your tree to a safe level, these include:
A section fell is an effective way of bringing a tree to ground level in restricted space, our team enters the tree and dismantles it by section using rigging and lowering to ensure damage is avoided.
Our highly-skilled team provide the correct experience and tools to deal with storm-damaged trees, we work safely and effectively to ensure that the potentially dangerous tree is swiftly managed and felled.
Rigging for tree removal is more complicated than climbing and demands experience and an understanding of the effects on the rope with the various knots and hitches used.
It is widely known that knots significantly reduce rope strength and corresponds to a reduction in the workload limit recommended by a manufacturer.
Prior to beginning any tree work, it is important to thoroughly examine the tree for structural imperfection, faults or weaknesses that could compromise safety.
