Trees, particularly mature and veteran trees produce significant amounts of deadwood. In open spaces this is not a problem but in urban and built-up areas around schools, homes and businesses, deadwood falling from trees poses a problem. Deadwood is the branches that the tree has decided to compartmentalise and allow to die off for various reasons. Deadwood removal is simply the safe removal of this material in a controlled manner.
