Deadwood Removal

Deadwood removal is usually completed as part of crown reduction or crown thinning operations. It’s important to ensure that the problem is dealt with promptly, if deadwood is removed early it can preserve the tree and promote healing at the removal site.

Our Approach

Roots & Shoots will assess the tree and determine the most appropriate course of action for deadwood removal.

The process is designed to prevent falling debris and is most likely to occur in high risk areas where falling branches pose a risk to the public. It involves assessing the canopy and determining which dead branches will degrade and eventually fall.

The Benefits

Deadwood provides essential habitats and its management should aim to leave as much as possible: only shortening or reducing branches that pose a significant risk.

Removing deadwood reduces the risk of decaying branches falling and causing damage and potential injuries. 

Choose Roots & Shoots

The durability and retention of the deadwood will vary by species, so it’s important to get it assessed by a professional.

It’s preferable to get potential deadwood assessed as early as possible; if removed early the tree has the chance to heal and remain healthy. We offer free quotes and consultations, so get in touch if you have any worries about deadwood.
