Trees



There are numerous ways of pruning Trees.

The most common is named “the tawanage”.

This technique consists in slaughtering Trees, refusing to consider there physiology, the risks for their health, neither the impact on their future mechanic structure. The only seeming advantage for the customer is the cost of the intervention… even if that has to be proved on the long view!

Shrubs



Do you know that a shrub can reach 7 meters high and look like a little Tree when it becomes an adult ?

A palm laurel, a sauce laurel or a hazelnut tree… All of them are shrubs.

As the thuja’s hedge is now outdated, we resort to – happily we must admit – flowered or rural hedges… cube-shaped …?!!

But do you know the light and arched carriage of a cotoneaster franchetti or the sumptuous carpophore of a European charcoal ?

Rehabilitation of areas


Management combine with pruning enable us to create coherent landscaped areas, answering to demands and “matters” on the very long view….

Concerning the appreciation of the aesthetic side, each one will decide.

Management of green waste





After pruning, dismantling or logging, different techniques of management of green waste exist :

Logging



Logging is a delicate operation consisting in the suppression of a Tree.

Reasons for logging can be various (health of the Tree, building or people security…) Some Trees can require a mechanic drawn. If the terms : directional cut, shoulder or escape way don’t mean anything to you… call a professional !

Dismantling



This operation, probably the most dangerous of the job of gardener, is chosen when the suppression of the Tree is necessary but the logging impossible (most of the time because of a lack of space).

In that case, the Tree has to be cut “in slices”, little by little, up to down. Here again, if you need some help, don’t hesitate to call a professional before fell as if you could fly…
