Recent Tree Care Work in Sheffield

Tree Care Work in Sheffield by Hands on Tree Care.

Leylandii Removed in Chesterfield

We were called to dismantle some Leylandii and Lawson’s Cypress in a rear garden to allow more light into the garden.  All the logs were stacked and cut to size for the customer to use on wood burning stove.

Typically logs would need 12-18 months seasoning so they have chance to dry out.  Ideal moisture content for hard or soft wood logs for stove burning is 20% or under. This ensures excessive tar does not form in chimneys and sufficient heat is produced from fire to warm rooms.

Dangerous Trees Removed

Removed Dangerous and damaged trees that had been pruned incorrectly in the past resulted in growth which was not suitably anchored. This Pollard was uneven and resulted in the tree “snapping out” due to imbalanced growth (contorted willows and hollies).

Tree Felling

When we were called to go and look at the trees that needed felling, we were told that the land had been planted up as a Conifer woodland approximately in the 1960’s for commercial forestry to sell timber.

Whilst we were working in the forest we felled approx 40tonnes of timber. The trees were removed by tractor and crane to the roadside for the timber to be collected by articulated lorry.

We look forward to following the land’s progress as it reverts back to its natural habitat.

Pollarding Trees – Sheffield

Pollarding Trees – Sheffield

Hands on Tree Care were called out to a job in Cinderhill Sheffield.  Belvoir Lettings had a property with trees that had become overgrown.   Firstly we had to tackle a large Willow Tree that had grown too large and too close to the house.

Pollarding the Willow Tree

Pollarding is a way Tree Surgeons prune trees whereby the upper branches of a tree are removed. This encourages a dense head of new foliage and branches. Pollarding is mainly practised to maintain trees at a set, prefered height.

Will Pollarding Damage the trees?

Pollarding can look harsh, but the trees will grow back strong, forming a densely packed canopy. These growth points are more manageable, and still attractive without shading and overbearing houses and small gardens. If done correctly pollarding will prolong the life of the tree, as it is maintained in a juvenile state. It’s branches do not become as mature and heavy as those left to grow naturally, and therefore are less prone to wind damage.

Hands on Tree Care Know how to Pollard

We have been pollarding trees across Sheffield for many years now, so this one was not a major problem. After carrying out our safety checks. We made sure that the garden was secure before starting work. Falling branches and boughs can be heavy and potentially lethal, so we always take precautionary measures to ensure the safety of residents and the general public.

After rigging up our harness system, Tony got to work cutting the Willow Tree. After hoisting himself high into the upper boughs of the tree, Tony systematically begins cutting the branches until the tree is pollarded to a suitable height.

A well pollarded tree is good for the environment too, because the extra light that can hit the base of the tree encourages low growth of bushy branches which is great news for small birds and garden wildlife.
