Tree Surgeon Services in Kent
Full Crown ReductionsReducing the overall volume and size of a tree’s crown, while maintaining the natural shape of the tree. It may be that you would like to keep your tree but you want more light in your garden, or you feel uncomfortable with the tree’s size given its proximity to your property. Typically we use a technique called drop crotching. This is where the arborist in the tree prunes to the most suitable growth removing the weaker leaders to produce both a natural and balanced crown. Don’t be fooled in to heavy reductions by other tree companies. This is a bad form of tree management, and doesn’t benefit the tree or you! Typically heavy pruning will produce heavy re-growth costing you as a Kent homeowner more in the long term and stressing the tree, making it more susceptible to disease and or die back.
Crown ThinningCrown thinning leaves the overall size of the tree as it is, focusing more on selected branches within the crown. These branches are often those that are either dead, crossing another branch or growing in to the canopy with no future. Crown thinning reduces the risk of failure in heavy winds and also creates an evenly balanced crown.
Crown LiftingTo remove the lowest branches of the trees canopy creating a formal look. Often carried out on roadside trees, lifting is an effective and affordable way of increasing the light in to your garden or opening up a view once again. Lifting is more often than not done as an alternative to a full crown reduction. When light is an issue but height isn’t.

Broadleaf Tree Surgery have years of experience in all kinds of hedge trimming and shaping and a keen eye for detail. We take pride in each and every one of the hedges we maintain year in, year out. Hedges often provide a formal look to a garden,or give you an element of privacy. Another common hedging purpose is for noise reduction. Regardless if it’s a large leylandii tree hedge that needs trimming or a small beech hedge we will produce the best finish each and every time. We specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases that affect hedges such as conifer aphids. Conifer Aphids cause unsightly brown dead patches and can kill whole hedges if left untreated.

Aaron and his team were great! We had a considerable amount of work done to the garden, including the felling and removal of 4 large trees and several smaller ones.
Throughout the time Broadleaf were with us they were polite, helpful and extremely professional in everything they did. Aaron is very knowledgable and really passionate about what he does and this shines through not only in his work, but also in his team.

Mr Clark. Tree pruning in Staplehurst
I thoroughly recommend Broadleaf Tree Surgery. On the day, Aaron and his colleague did a great job, cleaned up all the mess and made quick work of what is a very large oak tree. He made sure he clarified what we wanted on a couple of decisions which was important given the amount of other people’s land the tree goes over. They were very professional yet easy going.

Good value for money, and a pleasant bunch to deal with!….Even though the weather was against them.
Mr and Mrs Pope. Tree pruning in Maidstone
I have a large Willow tree in the rear garden. We love the tree and see it as an asset to our property, because of this we were very careful about who we chose to use when we decided we wanted to reduce the crown.
We went with Broadleaf Tree surgery over 3 other local companies. Aaron was punctual, polite and knowledgeable when he came to quote the job, and on the day he and the team worked hard and left our garden in an immaculate state, better than it was before they started! We will certainly be using the company again
