Tree Removal & Stump Grinding

It doesn’t matter how big or small your tree is, removal requires extensive tree surgery experience and specialist equipment to safely ensure minimal damage to the surrounding area. Our objective is to do exactly that whilst keeping everyone safe and out of harm’s way. A falling branch weighing as little as 10lbs can cause serious injury when dropped from a height of as little as 20 feet.

​When we remove a tree, all wood chippings, wood and debris are removed from site. If necessary, stumps and near surface roots are ground out and removed.

​In most cases, removing a tree requires logging and if you prefer, these can be left on-site. Alternatively, we could deliver them to a local friend or a neighbour.

We can advise you of your options in the event that one of your trees has a Tree Preservation Order on it.

Tree crown reduction and shaping improves the health of your tree and surrounding plants allowing increased light and air. It also increases a tree’s vigour and stimulates new, strong growth. Pollarding is another form of reduction, as are crown thinning and lifting. We can advise you of the various options to achieve the appearance you want.

​Working at heights in excess of 50 feet isn’t for the inexperienced, particularly when using a chain saw or pole saw. Only an arborist or tree surgeon can safely remove branches from a large established tree.

When a tree is not properly cared for, it can result in damage to property as well as possible injuries to people. Either of these will inevitably result in considerable financial cost, including any necessary remedial work. Lack of proper care could also result in the death of the tree.

​Tree maintenance consists of a combination of trimming, overall health care and preventative treatments for diseases and insects. Such tree work promotes a healthy tree with strong bark and increased foliage of a consistent shape and colour.

​When you don’t regularly trim trees, the aesthetics of your surrounding garden can be affected. Densely packed branches can block sun and prevent rain from reaching the grass and flowers growing beneath.

​Trimming is like a much-needed haircut, one that enhances the tree’s natural shape. Thinning out limbs and cutting back unwieldly branches is beneficial because it improves a tree’s appearance.

Hedge Cutting

Hedges generally have two growth phases a year, one in spring and another in late summer. Hedge trimming and shaping has a number of benefits:

  • Regular trimming promotes growth and therefore thickening of the hedge.

  • It keeps the hedge under control. For many hedges, particularly conifers, it is only the outer few inches that are green, anything deeper into the hedge can be brown and appear dead. Once cut back beyond the greenery, the hedge will never look green and fresh.

  • The hedge’s shape can be retained being a valuable feature of your property.

  • Security

  • Noise and wind reduction.

Tall or overgrown hedges can be a nuisance or cause for complaint, especially if they form a barrier or mark the boundary of an area, such as between neighbouring properties. Keeping your hedges trimmed and controlled can minimise potential problems.

Emergency Services

 The need to have urgent tree work done isn’t just because of storm damage. Your tree can become a hazard, whether minor or of a serious nature during its life. Recognising many of these hazards requires experience and knowledge which is why tree maintenance is important. However even the healthiest of trees can succumb to disease, dead branches, storm and flood damage. Here are just a few of the causes that can make a tree or a branch become a hazard:

  • Rain sodden ground weakening the root strength.

  • Branches dying due to age, disease, insufficient light and nutrients.

  • Storm damage

  • Lightning strike

  • Branches becoming an obstruction to both you and neighbours.

  • Lack of proper maintenance

Trees can weigh in excess of 10 tonnes, even branches can be as much as a tonne. Don’t wait until you have an emergency: follow good tree management practice to protect you and your family. That is what we are here for, to help keep you safe.
