Our Services

The services that Taylor-Day Tree Services provide include pruning, removal, emergency tree care (storm damage) and various other services.

If you are unsure which services you require, call us and we can assist you.

You may have trees that interfere with overhead wires, building facades, gutters, roofs, chimneys, windows, or those that obstruct streets or pavements. We can also advise you on preventive maintenance to keep trees in good health which will help the tree better defend itself against insects, disease and site problems.

Tree Surgery

Tree Felling

This is the complete removal of a tree. It is necessary to do this to dead, dying or diseased trees to prevent damage or injuries. This can be done by straight felling (where space permits) or by dismantling the tree in sections, we are fully experienced in directional and controlled felling of a tree using winching techniques.

Crown Reductions

Crown Reduction is used to reduce the height and/or spread of the crown of a tree by the removal of the ends of the branches whilst maintaining the trees natural shape as far as possible.

Crown Thinning

This is the removal of selected live branches growing throughout the crown of the tree. Crown Thinning can result in an even distribution of foliage therefore allowing light penetration and reducing wind resistance on the tree. This type of pruning can reduce the potential for storm damage.

Crown Lifting

This is the selective removal of the lower branches of the trees crown. This is done to prevent danger to pedestrians or vehicles which may pass the tree, or it can be done to allow light through.


This is a heavy crown reduction technique and is appropriate where the crown of a tree is too large for its location or in some instances where extensive defects and weaknesses might make the tree unstable. Severe pruning of this type can cause vigorous re-growth on the tree.

Tree Felling

Deadwood Pruning

Removing dead, insect-infested or weak limbs that pose a hazard or may lead to decay. Performing this kind of pruning can prolong the life of a tree and prevent damage to property as well as prevent injuries to anyone who may be struck by a falling dead branch.

Tree Preservation Orders/Conservation Areas

If you have a tree which is covered by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) or you are located in a Conservation Area then you will need to get permission from your local council before any work can take place, failure to do so may end in a big fine for both the tree surgeon and the trees owner. We can apply for the work via your local council on your behalf free of charge.
