These are some of the tree surgery tasks that we can carry out.

  • Crown reduction
    • Pruning back the ends of branches, reducing the crown of the tree to a more manageable size whilst retaining its natural shape.
  • Crown thinning
    • Selective removal of branches from the crown of the tree to increase light penetration.
  • Dead wood removal
    • We are careful only to remove dead, dying or diseased wood from the crown of the tree with the purpose being to maintain its health and safety.
  • Tree Felling
    • We can remove your tree to ground level. We do this by taking the tree down in stages carefully lowering branches and timber to prevent damage to the surrounding area.
  • Shaping and pruning
    • To maintain the natural shape and balance of your tree or to encourage new growth. Some trees require regular and remedial pruning, of which there are various training methods including formative pruning, which is carried out on younger trees to encourage a balanced structure to be formed as the tree matures. The result being a well balanced, mature tree with a sound structure. The added benefit of this technique is that if kept up every few years the size and growing habit of the tree can be managed.
  • Pollarding
    • We cut the heads of main branches back to promote a more bushy growth of foliage. This prevents them outgrowing their allotted space, casting shade, obstructing electric wires and streetlights or blocking gutters.
  • Stump grinding or poisoning
    • The removal of tree stumps after felling to below ground level. We can grind any size of stump using one of our stump grinders to below ground level causing minimal damage to the surrounding area.
      If the stump is not in the way, we can poison the tree stump to prevent re-growth and allowing the stump to slowly decay.
  • Hedge cutting
    • Trimming and shaping hedges to encourage thickness and maintain appearance.
