Dead Wood Removal

Deadwooding is the removal of dead limbs and branches from a tree. Deadwooding is normally carried out for safety reasons as dead/dying branches can fall off on their own. Unfortunately mother nature isn’t very selective about where dead branches will land. So it is usually best to have them removed proactively.

Branches die off for a variety of reasons. Light deficiency, damage to roots, disease and inappropriate pruning/cutting can all cause branches to die off.

 

This is typically a slow process, but as the branches die they become weak and will eventually fall off. Most commonly in high winds. With small branches this is not so much of an issue. But with weightier branches this can be dangerous, particularly when there is pedestrian or vehicle traffic underneath.
