Conifer Trees Removed

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.

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.

Overgrown Conifer Hedge – Pruned.

We were called out to a house in chesterfield to look at a very overgrown Conifer hedge. The Hedge had grown up to a height of approximately 12 meters in height and 75 meters long.Overgrown Hedge needs trimming

The hedge was mature and would have taken around 15-20 years to reach this height. Annual pruning would have prevented this level of overgrowth.

We were asked to reduce hedge as our customers neighbours had recently had solar panels fitted to their roof and were unable to get any benefit due to shade caused by overgrown hedge.

Hands on Tree Care use a sectional dismantling technique to reduce the height of the hedge.

Cutting an Overgrown Hedge!

Once we had trimmed the hedge to the desired height, cut the trunks into logs and removed all the cut branches.

Best time to Prune an Overgrown Conifer Hedge

Conifers should be cut Spring/Summer to prevent frost damage which can cause browning of the leaves thus making the trees more susceptible to pests and diseases. Consideration should always be taken for nesting birds and defer works where necessary.

Garden Clearance in Sheffield

We were called out to an overgrown garden in Sheffield,S11 Area. The garden had mixed hedges of Privet and Beech which were becoming too large and dangerous for resident to do from ladders herself.

Hedge height between 6-10ft tall and 2ft wide, bordering 3 sides of rear garden. There was also a cherry Tree which had become overgrown.

Garden Clearance

We set to work on the garden clearance, first, pruning the hedges.  The Cherry Tree was also pruned to shape and borders weeded. It was quite a tricky job as there was limited access down the side of the garden so we had to park our chipper on front drive and all cuttings were carried around side of house. Once we had finished, the driveway was swept and made tidy on completion of the Job.

Hedge Reduction in Sheffield

On Tuesday,  15th June 2013  we were in Sheffield again.  There was a  20ft long Hawthorn and Ash tree hedge that needed some serious reduction.

Cutting the Ash and Hawthorn Hedge

We were informed that the hedge had become overgrown and wild. We had inspected the site a few days earlier, so we knew exactly what tree cutting equipment would be needed to clear the hedge.

The hedge needed to be reduced to allow more light along a length of a public footpath.  Before we could start the work though, we needed to check for any nesting birds. Hands on Tree Care are a responsible Eco Friendly company and we want to deliver the best service for our clients whilst taking good care of local wildlife too.

Long Term Hedge Care

Our first job was to cut the hedge to a manageable height. This allows the hedge to be maintained more easily by local volunteers with cutters.  The Hedge will still require annual trimming once birds have finished nesting, usually by the summertime.

A healthy hedge of Thorn and Ash will always regrow even if cut heavily back. One we had cut the hedge back to the neccesary height,  we collected up all the cut branches and put them into our chipper.

Lengths of Ash Tree cut from the Hedge

We left the chippings on site as they make for great weed suppressant and mulch for the trees. Hands on Tree Care always take care to ensure that we follow Health and Safety guidelines to ensure public safety whilst working. We erected the appropriate signage informing people of our work as well as cones placed across footpath to protect pedestrians.
