Dublin Tree Pruning, Trimming, and Reduction
Our highly skilled tree surgeons can undertake tree pruning, trimming, and reductions in Dublin and the surrounding areas.
Tree pruning may be necessary for a variety of reasons. Overgrown limbs, for example, can crowd out other specimens and overcrowd an unruly appearance, as well as restrict crucial light to other trees, shrubs, plants, and even your garden space. Another reason to prune your tree/trees is to eliminate heavy limbs that are vulnerable to wind damage or simply weight alone. Maintaining your trees will help you avoid damage from severe winds and storms.

We prune trees in the following ways:
- Before any pruning is done, our tree surgeons will analyse each tree individually and determine the best course of action based on the species, shape, size, and condition of the tree. Your trees will be pruned effectively in order to preserve an even balance and a safe condition. To limit the risk of tearing and infection, all branches will be clipped optimally.
- We utilise the newest tree surgery techniques to ensure the safe lowering of large limbs and branches to avoid damage to your trees and nearby places. All pruning will be done in a controlled way, with the use of lowering ropes and/or slings as needed. If any of your tree’s branches are dead, storm-damaged, or diseased, they will be pruned back to the branch collar.
- We shall make suitable branch collar cuts while adhering to the BS3998 requirements at all times (British Standards). This will ensure the tree’s health and balance while also achieving the ideal overall shape.
Dublin Tree Pruning Services
Pruning is the correct phrase for the removal of any live part of a tree; this can also be referred to as tree trimming or tree cutting. It is preferable to use a branch collar to offer the tree the best opportunity of healing the ensuing wound. Pruning can be done in a variety of ways, including:
Dublin Tree Crown Cleaning
Removal of dead and dying timber; stumps from broken or improperly cut branches; and undesirable epicormic shoots Crown cleaning can also entail the removal of unsightly climbing plants like ivy as well as foreign things like wires.
Dublin Tree Crown Lifting
Lower branches are removed to effectively raise the crown, which is the tree’s entire branch system. As light may come in underneath the tree, this is a highly effective treatment for large garden trees where shading is an issue.
Dublin Tree Crown Thinning
The removal of selected branches from the entire crown reduces crown density while maintaining the tree’s overall shape and size. If a significant structural weakness in the stem or large branches is found, this is generally done as a weight reduction method. It is also done to lessen damage caused by crown resistance to severe winds or to enable more light to pass through a tree.
Dublin Tree Crown Reduction and Reshaping
The crown is shrunk without distorting the tree’s shape. This is highly specialised work that frequently involves a pruning method known as “drop-crotching.” Again, this is done to lower the weight of potentially problematic trees, but it can also be advantageous if trees are obscuring or causing damage to structures or electrical lines.
Dublin Tree Pollarding
Tree pollarding is a management method in which the primary leading stem of a young tree is removed to promote regrowth. The regrowth that results can subsequently be removed on a regular basis (re-pollarding) to the same point (the pollard head).
Avoid Tree Pruning!
Tree pruning can be done in a variety of ways, but not all of them are beneficial to the tree. Here’s an example of poor pruning technique:
This is the harsh pruning of a mature or semi-mature tree that involves the removal of nearly all of the tree’s branches and foliage. Unless on hazardous trees, this is almost always considered an inappropriate practise and should not be confused with pollarding. This method of pruning alters the tree’s shape, introduces decay, and promotes the development of a weak branch structure. It can even kill some species, such as beech.
