permission from your council, skill and experience. Green Onion Landscaping are passionate about tree surgery and the environment.

There are four types of tree pruning:
- Crown reduction and shaping – This means reducing the overall crown of a tree whilst still keeping its shape and appearance.
- Crown thinning – This method of pruning is used to remove branches within the tree crown without actually reducing the size or the shape of the tree. This method of pruning always more light penetration and also reduces wind resistance.
- Crown cleaning – This is the removal of dead, diseased or weak branches. We would also remove Epicormic shoots; a shoot that grows from an epicormic bud and lies underneath the bark of a tree trunk, stem, or branch of a tree. They lie dormant beneath the bark, their growth is suppressed by hormones from active shoots higher up the tree.
- Crown raising – This is when the lower branches of a tree are removed. This is usually done to reduce hazards near pathways or roads. This method of pruning is also used to increase visibility for example pruning back trees from windows or road signs.
Trees can be planted from October until April – If your tree is pot grown this can be transferred to the ground at any time of the year. Bare root and root ball trees can be planted in Autumn and Winter. Green Onion Landscaping under take Tree planting projects throughout Teesside, Tees Valley, Cleveland, Durham and The North East.
