Here is a quick guide to some of the work we can provide:

Crown reduction

The crown refers to the branches and foliage that make up the top of the tree. Crown Reduction is carried out by removing dead or decaying branches within the crown itself. This process offers a number of benefits such as:

  • Boosts the overall health of the tree
  • Allows more light to pass through the branches
  • Manages the spread of your tree
  • Manages the height of your tree
  • Increases safety for people and property situated nearby

Crown lifting

The main benefit of this procedure is to keep your tree healthy. To carry out this task, Out on a Limb Tree Surgery’s team of specialists cuts back branches lower down the tree in order to boost the wellbeing of the uppermost part – the crown – of the tree.

Crown Lifting is most beneficial when:

  • It is important to retain the height and majesty of the tree
  • The tree is in a busy spot where buildings or people might become affected by its spread such as pedestrianised areas, school entrances and so on…

Our trusted local team has 20 years’ experience and we have yet to discover a horticultural headache that could not be cured with some tree-based TLC.

Crown thinning

This simple but effective method sees the branches removed from the inner portion of the tree which allows the crown to retain its shape and size. This practice too has many benefits, including:

  • A reduction of the density of the tree which will enable more sunlight to seep through its branches
  • Building resilience – by allowing wind to pass through the branches, your tree is less likely to adversely affected by the weather, therefore preserving its position and the safety of people and property


Popular with commercial clients and particularly useful in the more urban settings of Hertfordshire and Essex, Pollarding is used to curb future growth.

Although it is not suitable for all trees, it is ideal in formal gardens (for aesthetic purposes) or for public areas (safety reasons) where, for example, trees may be at risk of interfering with power cables or overhead train lines.
