Fell / dismantle: A fell is cutting a tree to its base, completely removing it from the environment. A dismantle is when a tree is taken down in pieces, sometimes using a method called “rigging” where the logs/branches are lowered on a series of ropes and pulleys to avoid damage to the surrounding environment e.g. a shed, fence or building, or even a prized shrub under the tree.
Selective reductions: A very delicate form of reduction where only selective branches that stick out are removed to make the tree aesthetically pleasing.
Crown clean: Removal of; foreign objects, dead dying or diseased branches, crossing branches or duplicate branches.
