We Provide

Tree Pruning, Trimming, and Reduction in Dublin

Our tree surgeons in Dublin and the surrounding areas are highly qualified and can do tree pruning, trimming, and reductions.

For a variety of reasons, tree trimming may be necessary. Overgrown branches, for example, can crowd out other specimens and create a disorderly appearance, obstructing vital light to other trees, shrubs, plants, and even your garden space. Another reason to trim your tree/trees is to remove heavy branches that might be damaged by wind or simply by their own weight. Maintaining your trees will help you avoid damage from severe winds and storms.

How do we prune our trees?

Our tree surgeons will analyse your trees individually before doing any trimming to determine the best course of action based on their species, shape, size, and condition. Your trees will be trimmed effectively to keep them in a balanced and safe state. To limit the danger of ripping and infection, all branches will be clipped to their ideal length.

We utilise the most up-to-date tree surgery techniques to ensure the safe lowering of huge limbs and branches without causing damage to your trees or the surrounding region. All pruning will be done in a controlled way, with the use of lowering ropes and/or slings as needed. If there are any dead, storm-damaged, or diseased branches on your tree, they will be pruned down to the branch collar.

We’ll make the necessary cuts to the branch collar and always follow the Irish Standards’ rules. This will maintain the tree healthy and balanced while also allowing you to get the desired form.

Dublin Tree Pruning Services

Dublin Tree Pruning Services

“Pruning” is the official phrase for removing any live portion of a tree; it’s also called “tree trimming” or “tree cutting.” To offer the tree the best opportunity of mending the ensuing wound, it should be done with a branch collar. Pruning can be done in a variety of ways, including:

Dublin Tree Crown Cleaning

Dead and decaying wood must be removed, as well as stumps from broken or badly cut branches and undesired epicormic shoots. Unwanted plants, such as ivy, and other things, such as cables, can also be removed when cleaning the crown.

Crown Lifting of Dublin Trees

Lower branches are eliminated to raise the crown, which is the tree’s whole branch system. Because light can come in below the tree, this is a highly effective solution for large garden trees where shade is a concern.

Dublin Tree Crown Thinning

The crown density is lowered by removing chosen branches from the whole crown, while the tree’s general shape and size are preserved. If a considerable structural weakness in the stem or large branches is discovered, this is usually done as a weight-loss procedure. It’s also done to prevent damage from crown resistance to severe winds or to enable more light to pass through a tree.

Dublin Tree Crown Reduction and Reshaping

The crown is reduced in size without compromising the tree’s form. This is highly skilled job that frequently involves a pruning technique known as “drop-crotching.” It’s done to lower the weight of potentially dangerous trees, but it may also be advantageous if trees are obstructing or causing damage to structures or electricity lines.

In Dublin, tree pollarding is a common practise.

Tree pollarding is a management technique that involves removing the primary leading stem of a young tree to facilitate regeneration. When fresh growth appears, it can be pruned back to the same spot (called “re-pollarding”) (called the “pollard head”).

Avoid Tree Pruning!

Tree pruning may be done in a variety of ways, but not all of them are beneficial to the tree. Here’s an example of poor trimming technique:


A mature or semi-mature tree’s severe pruning entails the removal of virtually all of the tree’s limbs and leaves. Unless on dangerous trees, this is almost usually regarded an inappropriate practise and should not be confused with pollarding. This method of pruning alters the tree’s shape, causes decay, promotes the development of a weak branch structure, and can even kill some species like beech.

What are the benefits of tree pruning and trimming?

  • Trimming helps to remove dead or diseased branches, which may be a health danger as well as cause property damage.
  • Trees must be pruned while they are still young in order to establish a sturdy structure in the future.
  • Fruit trees that have been pruned produce more developed and healthier fruit.
  • Trimming back your trees enhances the amount of sunlight that reaches your garden. Smaller plants near the tree will get their fair amount of sunshine this way.
  • Heavy branches can be injured by wind or their own weight, so trimming them down might assist.
  • Trimming diseased branches will prevent the virus from spreading throughout the tree.
  • A well-kept tree is more appealing to the eye.

Why should you choose our Dublin tree trimming and pruning service?

Bulky Gardening has many years of expertise working with trees. We’ve done it everything, from tree pruning to tree trimming to total tree removal. Tree canopy reduction is one of the most challenging gardening activities that should only be handled by professional tree surgeons. And every single one of the arborists with whom we work fits that criteria to a tee. They’ve been taught and know how to properly prune and trim trees. They also have all of the necessary tools and equipment.

Putting tree care in the hands of persons who aren’t licenced might have unintended repercussions. Here are several examples:

  • The tree is injured because too much of it is trimmed.
  • Pruning practises that are incorrect might harm your tree.
  • A tree might be shocked if it is not chopped properly, which is harmful to its health.


Frequently Asked Questions

We recommend having your trees trimmed professionally at least twice a year and pruned once a year. However, keep in mind that in some circumstances, the frequency is totally dependent on the tree species.

Except in the winter, most trees may be trimmed all year.

Yes, it is possible to destroy a tree by over-pruning it. All of the tree surgeons we work with, on the other hand, have received professional training and understand how much pruning is too much and when to stop.

Pruning does not harm or damage trees when done correctly. It is, on the contrary, extremely useful to them.

Aesthetics, safety, and health are the key reasons. Your tree will be far more appealing to look at, the chance of a broken limb falling and injuring you or causing damage to your property will be decreased, and any diseases will be addressed before they spread to the rest of the tree.

Our services are offered across the city of Dublin.
