6x large Conifers in a Chesterfield garden become overgrown.  The trees were approximately 20years old.  They had grown to a height of 10m  with a  width 5m. The Conifer trees were beginning to dominate the space in the garden.  The customer requested the complete removal of the trees to achieve a lower maintenance garden and to create more natural light.

Conifer hedges require annual light to moderate trimming in Spring to prevent hedges becoming out of hand.  Heavy pruning does not create a good aesthetic result as it exposes the inner leaves with are brown.   Unfortunately,  once become overgrown require removal

Conifers also create acidic and dry soil, such soil makes it difficult to grow other plants in close proximity to the conifers.  This Acid soil also affects soil quality preventing healthy lawn growth.

Leaning Poplar Tree Felled Chesterfield

Leaning Poplar Tree Felled Chesterfield.

Do you need a Tree Felled in Chesterfield?  We were recently called out by a local farmer who needed a Poplar tree felled.  The Tree had developed a  lean toward a neighbouring property.  The neighbours had raised concerns about the safety of the tree due to dropped branches after windy weather.

The landowner decided to get the tree felled because it had become too large for the location and posed risk of instability in high winds.

Poplar Tree Cut

We decided the safest way to get the tree felled was to rope up to the top of the tree and cut from the top using a method known as ‘sectional dismantling‘.

Logs From Your felled Tree

When you get a tree felled by sectional dismantling, you can be sure that we are minimising the risk of danger to people and property below the tree. Large parts of the trunk and Bows are removed in sections and lowered safely to the ground. After that other sections of branches are cut away and the tree’s height is lowered gradually.

Once the whole tree or trees are cut, we can then cut up the logs into manageable sections to be taken away. Alternatively, you might want to keep the logs to use on your fire or in your wood burning stove. Remember to dry them properly for around a year before you burn them.

We always tidy up
One thing that you can be certain of is that here at Hands on Tree Care, we pride ourselves on leaving your property neat and tidy. We always clear up small branches and sawdust. Past customers often comment on our cleanup work.

Evergreen Trees Removed Safely

Hands on Tree Care  had a busy Autumn, we had to get the evergreen trees removed.

Evergreen Hedge Trimming

Hands on Tree Care were called to Chesterfield to dismantle some Leylandii and Lawson’s Cypress trees. The trees were situated in the rear garden, and needed to be removed to allow more light into the garden.

After the trees were cut down, all the logs were stacked and cut to size for the customer to use on their wood burning stove. Typically logs would need 12-18 months seasoning so they have a proper 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.

Poplar Trees Reduced in Height

Hands on Tree Care were called to Chesterfield to reduce the height of several Poplar trees from approx 100ft to 40ft in a private garden. Overgrown Poplar Trees
The Householder was concerned that the trees had become too tall and concerned that the recent high winds may cause damage to either their property or their neighbours.

Pruning Overgrown Poplar Trees

Poplars can be hard pruned and will grow back readily because they are a very fast growing species.We used a sectional dismantling technique to reduce the height of the trees, bringing them down to a nice safe height.

Tree Felling in Tight Spaces

This job was another tricky one in terms of logistics. There were lots of garden obstacles to negotiate, such as a pond, a shed, greenhouse and patio, therefore this job required precision felling.

Protect Ponds from Leaf Matter

Ponds require special attention when felling trees because falling leaf matter can often cause changes in water Ph and certain species of tree can cause poisoning to fish. As a precaution, ponds are always covered during tree cutting, to prevent damage to the wildlife or pet fish.

Remove overgrown Trees To help Smaller Trees Grow

Now that the Eucalyptus has been removed, the Ash tree behind, which was very ‘one sided’ due to being in constant shade, will begin to recover and develop more balanced growth .

Hands on Tree Care Protect you & your Garden Property

Garden ornaments are always cleared from the work area before cutting commences. No permissions were required from the local council in this instance, prior checks revealed no tree preservation orders, and the tree was not within a conservation area. Hands on Tree Care will help you check these vital details, to ensure that tree work is within the law.

3 Conifers Felled in Clay Cross

Tree Felling Chesterfield

Call Hands on Tree Care for Tree Felling.

3 Conifers Felled in Clay Cross – April 2014.

We were contacted by a home owner, who needed us to look at three Conifers, all required felling. The Trees were approximately 25 feet tall, and growing in close proximity to shed and fence.

Access to the trees and was difficult access as it was long way to drag cut branches through the back garden and up some steps to front of property where we had our chipper.

Felling Trees lets light flood into your Garden

Now that the trees are felled this will allow more light to get to a prized Sorbus Tree, which was growing in close proximity.

The extra light will benefit the Sorbus, resulting in more balanced growth and a healthier specimen.

Felling Trees Can improve Soil Quality

Soil quality will also improve with removal of conifers. This is because Conifers create acidic soil conditions, which many species are intolerant to. Conifer roots also cause desiccation of soil, which can lead to deterioration in health of lawn turf.

Call Hands on Tree Care for Tree Felling.

Hands on Tree Care think Safety First

Hands on Tree Care always asses each job with health and safety in mind. It is important to ensure that both people and property are protected when felling trees.

We climbed the Tree using spikes, we only use these when a tree is to be felled, as they cause bark damage during use. Rope and harness were used to strip branches out first,  then we removed the main limbs in sections. Finally we brought up all the cut branches, to the chipper before cleaning the yard.
