Habitat pruning

We are very conscious of the environmental impacts when removing trees. Where possible we will always consider leaving some material for biodiversity. This might be either in the form of standing deadwood, eco/habitat piles, dead hedges or even a simple log pile.

When dismantling dead or dangerous trees we will often recommend leaving part of the stem or trunk as a monolith. Where this is achievable further considerations to be made are 'habitat pruning'.

Coronet cuts can be done to mimic natural fractures on the retained tree sections. They also provide great habitat for insects and fungi. Bore cuts can also be done to create homes for various species of bats and birds.

This is the type of work we get really excited about so please contact us if you would like to know more on how you could improve biodiversity to your space.
