Tree Lighting Installation in London
As well as our typical tree surgery services, GraftinGardeners can install tree lighting in trees. This can be decorative lighting, spot light or flood lights. There are many different affects to achieve from tree lighting, depending on the size, shape and form of the tree. There are many different types of lighting and colours which can add drama and emphasis to the tree.
How we install tree lighting
We will install the lighting system in the correct way, branch wrapping should begin at a branch collar coming from the main trunk (stem) so a power supply can be easily connected to the tree and it looks tidy at the same time.
Long term lighting installations
If the lighting system is to be left long term, it is important to leave a tolerance in the wrapping which will allow the tree to grow without the tree ingesting the lighting system. It is also worth investing in a good lighting system as in some systems bulb failure can cause the whole lighting system to fail.
Pollarding creates a dense canopy of vigorous new growth which looks attractive and creates less shade. Since the leaf-carrying branches are thin, there is less crown weight and therefore less wind resistance and of course less to fall on the heads of passers by! The act of pollarding a tree also is said to increase its lifespan as it keeps the tree in a partially young state.
