Deadwood occurs naturally within the canopy of most trees. Some trees naturally have more deadwood in the canopy than others, for example ash often has a larger amount of deadwood.
Sometimes it is necessary to remove deadwood for safety in public spaces or gardens, or to improve the aesthetics of the tree. Deadwood removal is non invasive and doesn't affect the living parts of the tree. We usually use a MEWP (Mobile Elevated Work Platform) or climb the tree to carry out deadwood removal.
