Sensitive reduction and reshaping of a Beech Tree in Suffolk

The Beech is a deciduous tree that belongs to the tree family Fagaceae. In all, there are 11 species of Beech that to be found in northern parts of Europe, Asia and North America. The Beech tree usually grows on chalk, limestone and other well-drained and fertile types of soil. Beeches are numerous, widely spread and can be found in many UK gardens.

The project

This particular Beech tree was in a perfect location to provide shade for a patio area in our clients back garden, but because of its size, it had become more intrusive, blocking out light to the rear of the house. Indeed, the Beech tree had grown so much it was starting to look far too large for the garden.

The customer got in touch with us first to come and assess the work required to maintain the tree’s beauty, but reduce it down in size sensitively. This is a standard piece of work for our team where trees have grown to become intrusive, and need a delicate hand to trim and shape them, allowing for future growth and height management.

Our team set to work on the Beech tree, which was in excellent health and condition. They started to remove the height of the tree, first using a rope and harness. Once the preferred height was in place, the Elite team then began to shape the tree to give a perfectly symmetrical look to the canopy. Although some considerable height and width had been removed, the images demonstrate a very clean and precisely trimmed tree, ready for new growth.

The outcome

The reshaping and considered trimming of a tree is undoubtedly a popular type of project with our team. It makes a change from having to remove dead or diseased trees, and the outcome is always rewarding. This particular Beech tree was no exception, and look very clean and tidy for our happy customer.
