Tree Felling/Dismantling is the most common form of tree surgery and is a particular service we specialise in. This can be a very dangerous task, if attempted without the correct knowledge, skill and or equipment. Whether it’s a large tree in a small working area or a tree that is in close proximity to Buildings, Road’s or Electricity Cables, the highly experienced and qualified team of Climbers at The Tree Musketeers, will be able to safely undertake and complete the required works.
Crown reducing is the selective removal of branches and stems to reduce the height and/or spread of the crown of a tree. This type of pruning should be carried out when there is a need to minimize the risk of failure of a tree or to reduce interference to nearby buildings or other structures. Crown Reducing is also a preferred alternative to Removal or Felling to increase Sun-light and to open scenery views.
Tree Pruning effectively helps to maintain the crown’s shape and appearance. It is sometimes possible to save an infected tree by strategically pruning away affected branches and limbs. Thinning the crown of a tree improves airflow, which can be very beneficial and proves to help with generating new growth, fruit & flowers.
Pollarding is a method of pruning that keeps trees and shrubs smaller than they would naturally grow. It is normally started once a tree or shrub reaches a certain height, and annual Pollarding will restrict the tree to that height.
Deadwooding is mainly used for safety and for the continued health of a tree. A high amount of deadwood reduces the tree’s aesthetic appearance and if left unattended, it attracts pests and diseases.
Tree planting is one of our favourite services for all of us at The Tree Musketeers. We understand the value of planting tree’s and each year we aim to re-plant an equal amount of tree’s that we have felled or removed. We have a very good relationship with some of the most well known local nursery’s and can often pass on our commercial discounts to our clients.
In the event of a Tree Emergency, we have our own Tree Team on standby 24 Hours a day, 365 days a year, ready for that unsuspected event. Our highly skilled Arborists are trained and qualified to the highest level to deal with even the most challenging scenario’s that may occur across Dorset.
Tree Preservation Order (TPO) is an order made by a Local Planning Authority with respect to trees or woodlands. A tree that is protected by a TPO requires consent before any works on the tree are undertaken.
We here at The Tree Musketeers are always happy to provide you with free information regarding TPO’s and will also complete all necessary documentation and Applications for any scheduled work’s FREE of charge!
In severe health and safety scenario’s, you are allowed to undertake certain works to a tree, without notice or application to either the Local Authority or the Forestry Commission. This is something one of our experienced staff can provide you with more information on.
Stump Grinding is a specialist service that we provide to remove any old or un-wanted stumps. This process is completed by our stump grinding machines that vary in size, from being capable of removing the very biggest of stumps on commercial projects to narrow garden gate access for small stumps typically found in your garden. The unwanted stumps are ground out and the mulch/chipping’s that are generated is typically backfilled to fill the hole of where the stump was previously, leaving a perfect replanting area for a new tree or flat base for new grass.
