We offer a range of services but can appreciate that tree surgery jargon can be a little bit confusing. Below is a list of some of the most popular services that we offer.
Our highly knowledgeable tree surgery consultants will be happy to advise our clients on how to best achieve their goals.
All of our tree surgeons are professional, polite and respectful of our clients, their needs and their property.
Felling can be done in two ways – straight felling or via a section fell. A straight fell will only be carried out if the surrounding space allows. A section fell involves removing the branches one at a time and lowering them to the ground before removing the trunk (also in sections if necessary). This is a useful method of felling in tight and confined spaces.
We can purchase and plant most trees, shrubs and hedging as well as offering advice on species in relation to the location for planting.
We are experienced in working for commercial clients and businesses. One of our clients has been using our services for over 11 years. We will provide all risk assessments and method statements and will provide proof of public liability and waste carriers licence upon request.
This involves raising the canopy by the removal of the lowest branches either to achieve a uniform height or for access, which for pedestrians on a public footpath is 2.5m/8ft or for vehicles on a public highway is 5.2m/17ft.
Pollarding refers to the removal of all the branches of a tree, leaving only the main trunk in place. Sometimes this can be necessary if you have a badly misshapen and unbalanced crown. This can occur through storm damage or through a crown that has been partly suppressed due to close proximity to buildings or other trees.
The re-growth after pollard will form a more balanced crown but may require re-pollarding every few years.
On most occasions poisoning a stump with non toxic systemic poison is sufficient. However if the client requires the stump to be below ground level eg. for paving, turfing or simply re-planting then we have various sized stump grinders for access to any tree stump, whether through or round the property. Our grinders can grind a stump to 1ft below ground level.
If you have a situation with a tree that is urgent please call us for advice. We will send out an operative to evaluate and where possible immediately carry out works to ensure public health and safety as well as the safety to your property.
