Parklands Maintenance offers a comprehensive range of tree management services to residential, commercial and industrial clients. We specialise in large tree removals in confined spaces and hedge pruning. Please see our full range of services below.
Tree removal can be necessary for various reasons. The tree may be dead or dying, diseased, growing too close to a building or structure or part of a larger hazard management plan.
A tree can be felled from ground level if there is sufficient room. However, suburban trees are often located in confined spaces, often overhanging buildings or other outdoor structures such as sheds, conservatories or well-manicured gardens. Access can also be limited and awkward for pedestrians, let alone heavy machinery and equipment.
Parklands Maintenance uses efficient rigging techniques to enable the safe dismantling of large trees in small spaces.
Sometimes, access permitting, it can be more efficient to employ the use of an elevated work platform (EWP or “cherry picker”), particularly when working in close proximity to overhead power lines.
In certain cases, also depending on access, the safest, most efficient and cost-effective way to dismantle your tree will be to use a crane.
Most amenity trees require some pruning in one form or another during their lives. Listed below are some common types of pruning:
Hedge Trimming is a necessity for maintaining a healthy, good-looking hedge. Regular pruning stimulates new, bushier growth which in turn promotes the overall condition and appearance of the hedge. Having spent many years working in the UK, where hedges are abundant in all shapes and sizes, hedging is one of our specialities.
When a tree is removed the stump remains exposed to varying degrees. If your stump is in a hazardous location, e.g. likely to trip a pedestrian, or you wish to plant a replacement tree in the same spot, then removal of the stump is advised.
A stump grinder removes tree stumps by means of a rotating cutting disc. The disc has sharp teeth that grind the stump and roots into small chips which are then usually compacted back into the hole and spread around the area as mulch.
Stump grinders come in various sizes, from the very large for huge stumps to compact stump humpers for tight access areas. We can employ the most appropriate grinder for your requirements.
Some trees, depending on your local Council, require an Arborist’s report before certain work can be done to them. Parklands Maintenance can organise this for you as a preliminary to the desired works.
