Trees contribute greatly to Singapore’s environment and landscape, whether through giving us shady spots to spend our days in, adding beauty to a garden view, or providing natural habitats for native wildlife. In order to ensure that these majestic plants can continue to enhance our day-to-day life, they must be regularly trimmed, pruned, or cut to keep them healthy and manageable.

GreenSpade offers tree trimming, tree pruning, and tree cutting services islandwide. Our team consists of professional landscapers, horticulturists, and arborists trained in tree care in order to provide you with the best advice on keeping trees healthy and well-maintained. Our professionals are able to advise you on whether certain parts of the tree could pose a risk to people or animals, and can provide follow-up services to remove any dead or dying branches and leaves.

What is Tree Pruning?

Tree pruning is the process of selective removal of tree branches. It is done for a variety of reasons, including to improve the tree’s appearance, remove diseased or damaged branches, promote fruit production, or reduce the tree’s size. When done correctly, tree pruning can be beneficial for the health and vigour of the tree. Incorrect pruning, on the other hand, can result in damage or even the death of the tree.

Our Tree Cutting Services

1. Crown reduction

Crown reduction is a type of tree cutting involving reducing the height and/or spread of the tree canopy. This service is often done to provide clearance for buildings, power lines, or other structures surrounding the tree. Crown reduction also helps reduce the weight of the tree’s branches, making it less likely to uproot or cause property damage during heavy rainstorms.

2. Tree trimming

Tree trimming involves trimming or removing excess branches from a tree. This ensures that your tree is neatly shaped, and can also help to enhance the tree’s health and growth. Regular tree trimming is key to maintaining the size and shape of your trees or shrubs, and can help prevent overgrowth that could endanger others.

3. Deadwood removal

Deadwood removal is a tree cutting technique that involves removing dead or dying branches from a tree. This is often done to improve the tree’s appearance or to prevent the spread of disease to other parts of the tree. It can also help reduce the risk of wind damage by reducing the amount of surface area that the wind can catch.

4. Thinning

Thinning is a tree cutting service that involves removing some of the branches from a tree. This service is often done to improve the tree’s appearance or to allow more light to reach other plants underneath it. Not only that, but it also helps reduce the risk of wind damage by reducing the amount of surface area that the wind can catch.

5. Tree elevation

When your trees start to show signs of stress, it may be time to consider a tree-elevation service. This type of tree cutting service improves the health of your trees by raising them off the ground. This allows for better drainage and aeration around the roots, which helps to reduce stress and improve overall tree health. In addition, it helps improve the appearance of your trees by giving them a more aesthetically pleasing look.
