Tree pruning

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Just a quick one this. Does anyone know of a competent and reliable tree surgeon type person that could cut back our ever expanding and triffid like leylandii type trees?

Would have it done some time early new year, but cannot seem to find anyone who knows what they are doing (as opposed to someone who can merely hack the trees to pieces) Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

Many thanks,

Re: Tree pruning

Very true Jamie, they are all butchers with a chain saw here. Best solution of course is to do borrow the kit and do it yourself.

You're correct about the time of year to do that here. I researched the rights & wrongs and learned February is about right here, after the frosts but before the sap starts to rise.

Now I don't want any comments on my ability to rise sap.

Re: Tree pruning

lf l was there Jamie.lt would have been a pleasure to help you out.
Leylandis are primitive plants and do not react like decidious trees do when pruned.

To hack them back will kill the foilage and never grow back.
l hope you can find someone,many do not know the make up of many woody trees and this is what will cause the problem.

Re: Tree pruning

Best to do it yourself, if they are cut back into old wood they will not regenerate and just stay brown sparse and horrible forever.
The trick is to gradually "shave" back the green growth to a level where you feel happy but NEVER cut into old wood if you do the damage is irreversible.

Re: Tree pruning

Thank you chaps, I'm a bit of caveman when it comes to any type of gardening so your advice is very helpful (plants/trees in ground grow - that's about my limit :-)) Rob, I would never question yr ability to rise (so to speak)
