Crown thinning

The crown of a tree is the branches and leaves extending from the trunk or main stems. Crown thinning involves removing some branches from the tree in order to let in more light. Up to 30% of the branches may be removed, and His N Hers Tree Services in Caterham concentrate on removing dead branches or congested shoots first.

Crown cleaning and dead wooding

Dead wooding is the removal of dead, dying or diseased branches from the crown. It improves the appearance of the tree and dramatically reduces the danger of falling limbs. A full crown clean will involve the removal of dead wood, and also any other unwanted objects such as climbing plants, fungal fruit bodies, or man-made objects such as nails, rope swings or wind-blown debris.

Crown reducing

A crown reduction will reduce the height and/or the breadth of a tree while retaining the framework and shape of the crown. A more advanced form of reduction is called "drop crotching", which involves pruning branches back to a lateral branch which is at least 1/3 of the diameter of the removed branch. You will feel assured that our Tree Services in Caterham have dealt with your situation thoroughly and safely.

Target pruning

Target pruning is the removal of material that is no longer contributing to the tree’s health, like crossing or rubbing branches.

Crown raising

Crown raising is the removal of the lower branches of a tree, to leave a certain amount of clearance between the ground and the lowest branches.


Pollarding is a pruning system that aims to keep a tree to a manageable size, smaller than it would naturally grow. The upper branches of a tree are removed, promoting a dense head of foliage and branches, primarily to maintain trees at a predetermined height. Our Tree Services in Caterham can deal with this for you.

Tree felling/dismantling

Tree felling is exactly what it sounds like. In some cases, a large or very complex tree may need to be taken down in sections, by climbing the tree, cutting branches and lowering them by rope. Dismantling is most often done when trees are dead, dangerous, storm damaged, or overhanging buildings, or on sites that have difficult access and/or confined space. Our experienced team will complete the task in hand with safety and professionalism.

Hedge cutting

Cutting back hedges is essential to keep them looking neat and tidy.
