Deadwood Removal

Summit Trees offer a deadwood removal service to clear out all dead or dying branches from a tree, leaving it healthier and safer.

Occasionally trees will naturally shed small dead twigs and branches which is normally nothing to be concerned about.

However large quantities of deadwood in the tree can become hazardous either by being shed or blown out in strong winds.

Each tree will be inspected before works commences, a tree may not need all deadwood removed as it can be beneficial to species of insects and birds.

Large dead wood should be removed when a tree is overhanging targets such as roads, public footpaths, buildings etc.

When deadwood removal is carried out, a Summit Trees arboriculturist will inspect the crown for other potential hazards, they may also remove diseased, damaged, dying and crossing branches most of which are potential hazards if left in the crown.

When our tree surgeons carry out deadwood removal they will generally remove or stabilise large dead wood and also remove smaller dead wood down to approx 40mm. Deadwood removal can be carried out at any time of year and will not affect the health of the tree in any way.
