Case Study: Overgrown Walnut Tree Cleared for Landscaping


As one of the leading tree surgeons in Ipswich, we deal with a wide range of issues. One of our most recent jobs was for a domestic client who was experiencing issues with a walnut tree. Our tree surgeons know how to tackle trees of all sizes, and they were quickly dispatched to the client’s property to see what could be done.

The Challenge

The walnut tree in question was in the corner of a garden, and had a very low crown that prevented easy access. As a result, the area around the tree had become very overgrown, spoiling the overall look of the garden. The client didn’t want to sacrifice the tree, so we quickly came up with a plan that would leave the tree in place but would free up much more space in the garden, and allow the client to complete the vision that they had for their outside space. Luckily, our tree surgeons have seen plenty of cases like this before, and the solution was a simple one.

The Solution

We decided that the most appropriate course of action would be to lift the crown of the walnut tree. We’ve got plenty of experience when it comes to crown reductions, and we were able to remove the parts of the crown that were causing the access issues – all while ensuring that the tree retained a full, balanced look. When we were finished with the tree, we moved on to clearing the area below.  As you can see from the before and after photos this made a massive difference to the corner of the garden. The client was then able to landscape the area as they wanted to, bringing that part of the garden in line with the rest of their outdoor space.

Get in Touch

Whether you have a tree that you think could benefit from crown lifting or you are interested in any of our other services, please do not hesitate to get in touch with a member of our friendly team today. We’d be delighted to help you in any way that we can.

Elite carried out both fencing and tree work for us. The fencing work consisted of approximately 50 metres of new fencing and the removal of a 15m high Holly tree along with stump grinding ready for fresh planting during the spring. Really happy with the final result the team were friendly and made sure everything was left tidy afterwards. Work was competitively priced and clearly a professional business.

Elite Trees replaced my rear fence for me. They were very efficient and friendly from the quoting stage all the way through to finishing the job. Fence looks great and I would not hesitate in recommending them.

Dear Mr Thomas, thank you and your team for an exemplary job with which we are very satisfied. With the multi-stemmed Ash removed, we have been able to see the wood for the trees, so to speak. To avoid unnecessary constraints on future planting, we have decided to have the stump(s) ground out and I understand that you will arrange for that in the near future and look forward to hearing further from you.
