Tree thinning & deadwood removal in Stockport

Work on this beautiful oak tree was completed at a property in Cheadle Hulme, Stockport. Read more about this tree surgery project below, or learn more about our expert tree cutting services, including tree pruning, shaping, and deadwood removal.

This beautiful but large oak tree was located in a small garden in Cheadle Hulme, Stockport. It had become very dense in leaf and was not letting any light through its canopy. The tree also had a large amount of dangerous deadwood within its crown.

The customer wanted to keep the tree’s natural shape, but wanted to increase light levels. The crown thin helped allow a lot more dappled light to penetrate into the relatively small garden, whilst not affecting its overall shape in any way. The removal of all deadwood made the tree safe, eliminating the risk of falling dead branches.

The beautiful tree was safely climbed by tree surgeon Steve, via rope access, before he expertly and selectively removed branches, achieving an even 20% thin of the tree’s entire crown. As this procedure was carried out, all of the deadwood was also removed. The large amount of debris created was then chipped and the garden left in an immaculate condition.

In this case, the customer believed that the tree may be protected by a tree preservation order (TPO), as it was an Oak. This is a common misconception, as not all oaks are protected and any type of tree can be protected by a local authority, as it is not specific to species.

As with all of our tree surgery work, the tree was checked for the possibility of a tree preservation order, or of being in a conservation area, before the commencement of any work. On this occasion our investigations showed no such protection, allowing us to commence our works without restriction. We were able to inform the customer that an application was not necessary and that the tree had no tree preservation order at this time.

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.

Andrew Hardy (Sales Manager) Lookers, Stockport

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.
