Oak Tree Reduction in Layer-De-La-Haye, Essex

12th October 2015

In early October, Roman River Tree Care were tasked with reducing the size of a mature oak tree in Les Bois, Layer-De-La-Haye in Essex near Colchester.

This particular oak tree had grown larger than what was acceptable in the property, and the cleint required the tree crown to be reduced. A crown reduction is carried out to reduce the height or spread of a tree by pruning back the leader and branch terminals to lateral branches. By cutting back these tree branches the overall canopy of the tree is reduced in size helping to maintain the form and structural integrity of the tree. Crown reductions are particularly important where trees cause a safety issue, block our light or impose on residential developments and housing generally due to growing too large for the environment they are in.

As can be seen from the photo, the oak tree was much higher than the house roof. Our expert tree surgery techniques ensured that the property will be able to continue to enjoy this magnificent oak tree – but a tree which is more fitting in size to the property and its garden size.
