Firstly, there was a large Conifer in the front garden. The Conifer was a Leylandii tree and it was blocking the light from the property. This made the house dark during the day. The Tree needed a Crown Reduction. By trimming the tree we allowed more light into the house, which also made the front rooms warmer.

Reduction of Leylandii to allow more light into the front of the property and upstairs windows. The tree was reduced to a more manageable size for maintenance, and also causes an increase in foliage at the base of the tree so appears more healthy. This will need re-trimming if it becomes too unruly, but the base foliage is easily managed if trimmed regularly.
