Tree Surgery

Whilst we pride ourselves in all aspects of our work, it’s pruning in particular that we are most proud of.

Here are just a few methods of tree surgery to help keep your trees happy and healthy. 

Crown reduction

By pruning the outer branches, a crown reduction helps to reduce the overall size of the tree’s crown whilst ensuring the crown’s shape remains the same.

Crown lift

A crown lift involves carefully removing a tree’s lower branches. This can be aesthetic, to help to introduce more light, increase air flow or improve your view, for example. It may also need to be carried out for access or safety reasons.

Pollarding

Pollarding is a pruning system which helps you control the overall growth of the tree to ensure it does not outgrow its space. 

 

Fruit Tree Pruning

Pruning your fruit tree is vital. Not only does pruning help to boost fruit production, it helps to prevent disease, improves the structural integrity of your tree and will enhance its appearance. 

Deadwooding

Dead branches cause a tree to bear unnecessary additional weight which can cause significant stress. By removing deadwood, we can help the tree regain its balance, reduce wind resistance and minimise the risk of fallen branches.

This is the third time Bencombe Tree Care have carried out work in our garden. We are always 100% satisfied with the end result and would not hesitate to use them again. Thank you very much to Lawrence and Tom for their hard work.

Great communication and service. We had a tree come down on our drive during a stormy night and Maddy & Lawrence sorted us out straight away!

Fabulous service from the Bencombe team. Hedges have never looked better and all the clippings were taken away. Would heartily recommend them.

Very highly recommended. We've had around 10 trees managed by Lawrence and Tom so far, including crown reduction, lifting, thinning and felling. Each and every time they do a fantastic job, along with excellent communications, timely arrival, and everything left tidy afterwards. Will definitely be using again and would recommend with gusto.

Great job done by Bencombe Tree Care. Communications from the first contact were great, we even got an email the night before the due date reminding us they were coming. On the day the work was done quickly and to a high standard. Great tidy up afterwards as well. Thanks all, I will happily recommend you to anyone asking.

10/10 service from Lawrence and Tom. Excellent communication beforehand, arrived on time and they really did go above and beyond. Everything was left neat and tidy and they were especially polite. I’m so glad I got the job done and I’d definitely recommend them to anyone!

Could not have asked for a better service. The team at Bencombe are impressively efficient, taking 6 very tall conifers out of my garden in 2 days. Despite the very hard work in hot weather, Lawrence and his team were a joy to be around and clearly care deeply about their work. He knows so much about trees and their care, he was so conscientious in his approach and gave me a lot of advice on how to support the garden to flourish and grow. I will definitely be using Bencombe again in future.

Bencombe Tree Care undertook a survey of our older established fruit trees in our orchard to ensure they were safe. Lawrence and his team then pruned the trees back allowing them to produce an abundance of fruit for us. They were very professional to deal with and left the orchard very tidy. We highly recommend them to our friends and family and will not hesitate to use them again in the future.

Lawrence came to give our cherry tree some well overdue TLC! We had great communication from him before the date he was due to work. He arrived promptly and got the job done efficiently. Our tree is healthy and thriving. We will definitely be using Bencome tree care again and again. He is our go to tree surgeon and couldn’t recommend him more !!
