Tree Removal in Dublin and Wicklow, Ireland

While we typically prefer retaining a tree in good health over removing or felling it, occasionally a tree may be considered to be in an incovenient or unsuitable location. A tree may otherwise be in poor health which may make it unsafe to keep. A variety of factors may determine certain trees as hazardous to people and property. For example, if they exhibit signs of waning health, decline or structural defects, an action such as tree removal may become necessary.

If your based in Dublin or Bray, Co. Wicklow, regardless of your tree problem can rest assured that Crown Tree Services have the means and experience to safely dismantle hazardous trees with expert efficiency. Contact us to find out more but first read on to discover some potential alternatives to tree removal.

Preventative pruning

Imagine if we removed every tree we perceived as a risk. Soon, there would be no trees left at all. Felling isn’t necessary in the majority of cases. Many trees situated closer to walls and houses can be safely maintained. We usually achieve this by keeping tree height and spread under control. I refer to this as preventative pruning. However it’s imperative you consult with an arborist to discuss options since a tree may appear healthy on the outside while defects and ailments may escape an untrained eye. Where trees are in closer proximity to people or property there is an elevated risk in the event of failure. Just because a tree is well maintained doesn’t preclude it from falling.

One way to reduce the size of a tree is with proper Pruning practices like ‘crown thinning’ and ‘crown reduction’. Crown reduction can reduce the levering effect the wind has on a tree as it blows up against it. Less overall area and density throughout the trees crown generally means wind can pass through it more easily. This can reduce the risk of the tree coming down in a storm or heavy boughs snapping off in strong winds. Contact a reputable Dublin tree surgeon or tree service provider such as Crown Tree Services. We’ll help establish which solution may be more suitable for your tree situation.


Unless the risk a tree poses clearly outweighs the benefit of keeping it I prefer considering less extreme options. Contact us to arrange an assessment of your trees health and its situation. Wherever possible I’ll discuss alternative solutions to making the difficult decision of taking a tree down altogether because once its gone, its gone. If required we can arrange for a surveying arborist to draw up a formal written assessment called a tree report. Tree surveys are a related service provided by Ciaran Keating of CMK Horticulture & Arboriculture.
