Cutting Edge Tree Care NPTC qualified & fully insured tree surgeons for Cheshire & Manchester.

Crown Reduction & Shaping

Crown reduction pruning is most often used when a tree has grown too large for its permitted space or to increase light into areas the tree is shading. Crown reduction can also be used to reduce a tree’s wind resistance.

The final result of a crown reduction would usually retain the shape of the tree, although with a smaller outline.

Crown Thinning

Crown thinning is a pruning technique primarily used on hardwood trees.

Crown thinning does not reduce the height or change the shape of the tree but is the selective removal of stems and branches to increase light penetration and air movement, thus reducing wind resistance, throughout the crown of a tree.

Crown Lifting or Crown Raising

Crown lifting is the removal of selected branches and limbs from the lower part of the trees crown thus lifting the crowns overall height.

Depending on the location of the tree, this process is generally performed to ensure vehicles and people can pass safely underneath the tree, avoiding accidents and injury.

This process can also assist in allowing more light to penetrate through the lower crown.

Deadwooding

As a tree grows it is natural for some branches to die back. It is advisable to have your tree regularly inspected and cleared of any deadwood that poses a risk.

Pollarding

A pruning technique involving the removal of the upper branches of a tree. Pollarding dramatically reduces a tree’s outline size making a much smaller canopy, however, in regrowth this practice does promote a dense head of foliage and branches.

Hi Steve, Many thanks yet again for a superb job. We have been more than happy to pass you on to our family and friends. We shall be giving you a ring when our trees require further attention.

Bernard and Kath, Tytherington, Macclesfield

Steve thank you once again for all your hard work sorting out our trees. It is wonderful to actually have someone as good and efficient as you are to help us. As usual you arrived punctually, did exactly as we asked and tidied up afterwards. Thank you again.

Christine, Alderly Edge

Have since used Cutting Edge Tree Care twice again on the large conifer hedges at our house In Mobberley. What can I say brilliant job again.

Sue and John, Romiley

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Steve and Cutting Edge for the work completed on our garden. Having 2 trees completely removed and a further 2 trees cut back has brought in much more sunlight and has transformed our garden into a much lighter space. Extra garden waste was cleared and everything was left in a very clean and tidy manner. A very professional job completed in a surprisingly quick time, I can certainly give Cutting Edge Tree Care a glowing recommendation!

Gareth, Chisworth, Glossop

Thank you Steve for your quick and professional response to the removal of a large dead and dangerous tree at our angling club. I would recommend Cutting Edge Tree Care to anyone.

James, Cheadle, Cheshire

To Steve and Cutting Edge Tree Care Macclesfield. Just a quick note say many thanks for the swift response to my call for help. You and your company provided a first rate job cutting back our tree lined borders and removing all the debris. Very quick, very professional and at a good price too! I will have no problem using your company when the need arises again.

Dear Steve, Thank you for all your help applying for permission to prune the trees in my garden which have preservation orders on them. I am very pleased with the way you have pruned the trees – it has given the garden and house much more light. Kind regards.

M. Eden, Mobberley

We used Cutting Edge Tree Care Macclesfield after they were recommended to me by one of my clients. We had a large sycamore tree over hanging kennels and exercise area that was in poor health and a nuisance. We were really impressed with the service Steve provided from checking for a tree preservation order to the skilful way in which the tree was climbed and taken down. Especially as the tree was over lots of obstacles (fences / buildings etc) all sustained zero damage. At the end off the work the areas were cleared and tidied really well and they cut and moved all timber ready for us to use on our fire. Great job will continue to recommend to my clients, friends and family.

Sue (Director), Chadkirk Boarding Kennels, Romiley

Just wanted to say that we have used Steve from Cutting Edge Macclesfield on behalf of our clients on several occasions over the last 12 months and what a fantastic service they have provided. Really nice to have contractors that keep to arranged appointments and carry out all work required with minimum fuss and maximum quality. We have also had great feedback from landlords and tenants themselves. Many thanks again Steve and we look forward to using you again soon.
