T.P.O.’s and Conservation Areas
If you suspect that your trees are subject to a Preservation order (T.P.O) SDM Tree Services can contact your local authority and find out if your trees are protected. If your trees are protected, you need written permission to remove them, or to do any tree surgery, apart from dead wooding. If you remove trees or do work to them without permission you could be prosecuted.

SDM Tree Work Services  can upon request fill out your application form and add photos/ plans applying for the tree surgery work to be undertaken. There is a small charge of £50.00 for this service, but if our quote is accepted you can re-coup the costs of this service after the tree surgery is completed. This process usually takes 4-6 weeks for a decision. If you want to remove trees, you may be required to plant replacements of the same species/native species near to or in the same location.

Tree Felling/Dismantling
The removal of the whole tree to ground level. SDM Tree Work Services Wakefield are highly experienced in removing large, dangerous and problematic trees in unsuitable positions. We use a variety of the latest recognised methods, To control/lower sections of the tree to prevent damage to the ground and surrounding targets. i.e. patio lawn shed glasshouse decks and garages.

Tree Pollarding
The removal of the entire crown to either a framework or a single stem/main trunk. (Please note that this can only be done on certain species which can be discussed at the quotation stage) Pollarding is a good technique for trees in a tight or awkward spot, removing as much as possible without losing the tree completely.

Tree Crown Reduction
The removal of a percentage of the whole crown. This technique lowers the height and shortens the sides, whilst maintaining a natural form. We achieve this by pruning limbs back to side or at secondary growth points. The recommended percent of the crown to be removed would usually be between 20% and 30%.

End Weight Reduction
The removal of selected secondary branches to reduce the weight of a large limb. This technique is used mainly to help prevent large limbs falling from veteran trees. Without losing the original shape.

Cable Bracing
We use a non-invasive cable bracing system called “Cobra”. We use this on large heavy limbs that have faults or are liable to fail, the Cobra system attaches the problematic limbs to the main stem to reduce the risk of failure and prolong the life of the limb.

Crown Thinning and Deadwood Removal
A portion of the tree’s secondary or internal growth is removed without affecting the original shape, removing dead, diseased and weak branches. We also remove crossing and eccentric growth. The aim of thinning a tree is to keep a uniformed crown, reduce the risk of disease and the danger of falling dead branches.

Crown Lifting/Facing Back
The removal of the lowest branches to improve access or light around the tree’s base. Facing back is the reduction of a specific side of the tree without lowering the height, a technique usually carried out on tree’s encroaching on boundaries or properties.
