Consultant in the impact of trees on buildings and people - Sheffield based, operating nationwide.
Pruning and felling to the highest standards
Jon Coe Tree Services began as a tree surgery contractor, and we’re pleased to still offer the full range of tree surgery services listed below. With our high standards of customer service, and a depth of knowledge that helps us stand out from most contractors, we have a high proportion of regular and returning customers.
We limit our contracting work to south-west Sheffield (Totley, Dore, Fulwood, Beauchief, Millhouses, Bents Green, Greystones) and nearby parts of the Peak District. We offer a free quotation service in those areas. Our prices are competitive amongst other high quality operators, but in an industry where quality varies greatly, we don’t try to be the cheapest. We do however always strive to be the best.
All our workers have the necessary qualifications and experience, and we are strict in our compliance with current Health and Safety legislation and guidelines. The company is fully insured through Arborisk.co.uk - please feel free to request viewing of our insurance documents.
It may be that your trees are subject to tree preservation orders (TPOs), conservation area status or planning restrictions. We are happy to assist with the handling of applications for work on such trees.
Jon Coe Tree Services is an environmentally sensitive company, paying full attention to our obligations under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000, The Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2010, and The Conservation of Habitats and Species (Amendment) Regulations 2011.
There are many different forms of tree pruning, each appropriate
to different situations. The most common are described
below. We are happy to advise you on what is most suitable for you and your tree. The term ‘crown’
is often used when describing tree pruning techniques – it refers
to the tree’s leaf and branch area but not the
To reduce the overall volume and visible size of a tree's crown, while
maintaining the natural balance and shape – ensuring that it still
looks like a tree. It may be that you would like to keep your
tree but you need more light in your garden, or you feel uncomfortable with the tree's size given its proximity to your property. Sometimes
a tree with a potentially hazardous decay or cavity may
be spared removal by reducing its crown volume, and thus greatly reducing
its susceptibility to high winds.
To remove the lowest branches of a tree, providing increased
clearance below. Often carried out on roadside trees as there
are statutory height clearance requirements that local councils/highway
authorities can enforce. Can also be an effective and affordable way of increasing the
light below garden trees.
This process leaves the overall size of the tree as it is, but
removes selected branches within the crown. The branches that
are removed are often those that are dead, rubbing, split or defective
in some other way. Combined with increased airflow within the
canopy this is a good way to maintain the health of your tree,
while also increasing the light passing through to the ground
below. Crown thinning reduces the ‘cluttered’ appearance of an
overly thick canopy.
Removal (deadwood or other)
Trees naturally produce deadwood
as branches die and decay. Indeed in an area of untravelled woodland
this provides excellent wildlife habitat. Unfortunately, the deadwood
branches of certain species have a tendency to fall out of trees, and above heavily used public
areas, roads or gardens this can be a hazard. Having a tree cleaned
of deadwood can reduce the hazard to people and property below.
Individual selected live branches can also be removed if they
have grown in an overly extended or weakened manner, or if they cause
other problems such as light obstruction or rubbing on properties.
A traditional method of tree management, the term 'pollarding' is often mis-used to describe poor tree pruning. Where it is appropriate, pollarding involves pruning
the tree quite dramatically, often to only a few metres high,
from which shoots re-grow with surprising vigour. It
can be an effective way to greatly reduce the size of a tree while
also leaving it in an easily maintained condition (when done on a regular basis). While it is not appropriate
for all species, it can increase the health and longevity of other
species – indeed, some of our best known ancient trees are old
pollards. We can advise on whether pollarding is an appropriate course of action for your tree.

Tree removal (dismantling and felling)
Why might you want a tree removing?
Often trees are removed because they have simply outgrown
their situation. They may have become alarmingly large for
their proximity to your house, they may be interfering
with your property, or they may simply have grown to block
off so much light that they spoil your enjoyment of your home
We are fully competent, skilled and equipped to remove your
tree using whichever method is most appropriate. Our extensive
tree surgery experience and training means we are very happy
to provide our services handling all removals including big difficult trees, and
ensuring the safe completion of what is potentially very dangerous work.
Dismantling / Sectional Felling
Most likely your tree will require dismantling in manageable
pieces, enabling us to avoid obstacles and minimize disturbance.
Wherever necessary we use the latest rope rigging techniques
to cut and lower each branch safely to the ground. This is complex
and technical work for the tree surgeon, and you can rest assured
that we have been trained in the latest and safest techniques
|Normally we are working in restricted situations and avoiding
obstacles such as buildings which make straightforward felling
an unsuitable technique. However, where space allows and it
is appropriate, felling is a very skilled task requiring the precision
and experience that we bring to all our work.
