There has been some debate as to the benefits of wind thinning or windsail reduction on trees. However, the scientific jury is still out. But, that doesn’t mean that we don’t see the benefits and that doesn’t mean that wind thinning isn’t a service that many contractors are providing in the local area and beyond. Ours is the best though - we submit - because we take into account scientific viewpoints and make sure that our techniques are the best ones for you, the ones with the highest possible success rate. Have a read through and we will explain our process, what we feel the benefits are and how to get in touch if you want to book a service!
What is the fuss about?
Well - put simply, wind thinning is the process by which the tops of your trees are cut down to size in order to allow more wind to pass through the area. Typically, trees form a barrier to the wind for obvious reasons. Therefore, if you want to increase wind movement in an area with trees, wind thinning is the answer! The main reason why controversy exists around the question of windsail reduction is because people disagree on whether it is a good idea for all tree types. Here in Kent, we know the landscape of trees very well and we are sure of good coverage of the types of trees that benefit from this service. Just get in touch and tell us about yours and we will be able to give you a pretty good idea if you should book the service or not.
Why Wind Thinning?
Well, the benefits of wind thinning or windsail reduction are many and varied. First of all, strong winds are liable to cause damage to trees that are thick and therefore take the full brunt of the hail forces coming their way. If you prune them properly, the wind will pass through more easily and leave your trees unharmed in its wake. Also, a good way to avoid large drooping branches and tree damage in general is to make sure that the trees can stand tall with minimal wind resistance. So - it could make all the difference and we would bet that it will!
One of the first things we will do if you get in touch with us is to book a conversation, meeting or an inspection. That way, we can hear about the type, size and location of your trees or we can come and have a look for ourselves. This will give us a pretty good idea of what kind of action we need to take and from there we will be able to sort out a time to come and do the work.
In the plan that we will present you, it will include pricing, time frames and any other pertinent information. It should give you all of the different points that you need to decide whether or not to book us!
