Crown clean: This means removing dead, dying or diseased wood, stubs of broken branches, crossing/rubbing branches, unwanted epicormic shoots and climbing plants, e.g. Ivy.

 

Crown reduction and/or reshaping: Some trees can be reduced in height and/or spread while preserving a natural tree shape by crown reduction and/or reshaping. This should be carried out by pruning back to a suitable growth point, side bud or branch to retain a natural shaped crown. Please note that all reductions are in keeping with British Standards.

 

Crown thinning: Crown thinning involves the removal of a specified proportion of secondary and small, live branch growth from throughout the crown to produce an even density of foliage around a well-spaced and balanced branch structure.

 

Crown lifting: Crown lifting or raising means the removal of lower branches, to a given height above ground level.

 

Stump and root removal: The stump and main roots in close proximity to the stump may be removed by digging or using a stump grinder to a specified depth.

 

Hedge cutting and light pruning: We are more than happy to trim the smallest bush and have the equipment to trim the largest hedge. We know how important it is to have your garden looking smart. We also prune fruit trees, rose’s climbing plants and more by hand ensuring the correct pruning cuts are made.

 

Mobile log splitting service: With our custom made log splitter we can now not only just carry out your tree works …we can split all your wood on site too. Whether you are having a tree taken down and you would like the wood for logs or you have a pile of wood and just no time to split it, our splitter will do the job for you thus saving you time and a lot of money to keep you warm this winter. Please contact us for details.

 

Disposal of resulting waste: Branch debris will be processed into wood chip to be recycled. Wood may be stacked for habitat, left for firewood or removed from site to be recycled. Any waste that is contaminated with stone, glass, metal etc and are not safe to process through a wood chipper will be removed to a waste recycling depot. The site will be left safe, clean and tidy.

 

Tree surveys: At Jenks we carry out tree safety assessments, full arboricultural surveys and BS5837:2005 Trees in Relation to Construction reports for planning and construction.

 

We can provide a simple written report containing basic tree details or full arboricultural or tree surveys which are similar but much more in-depth and are typically applied to single trees.

 

All our arboriculturists have professional indemnity insurance to protect tree owners against legal claims resulting from errors in assessment. Please note, however that the insurance will not cover you if you fail to act on recommendations contained in the report.

 

Why Do I Need to Have a Survey Done?

Tree owners have a duty to ensure they have taken reasonable steps to ensure the safety of their trees. Early consultation with someone with knowledge of the planning process, the British Standard and tree physiology is the best way to avoid costly mistakes and delays.

 

The British Standard (BS5837:2005 ) means that where a tree or trees are likely to be affected by a planned build, extension or demolition an assessment report conforming to the requirements of the BS5837:2005 has to be produced outlining specific criteria about the tree or trees, their management, viability and protection throughout construction/demolition.
