Tree Surgery

Tree surgery is a general term that describes many services which help ensure the health and safety of trees, shrubs, and other plants. We are equipped with all necessary striking tools, aerial aids, climbing equipment and more to carry out delicate operations while maintaining the well-being of your trees. From selective crown reductions to corrective pruning and removal of deadwood, we have the expertise to provide a range of services to boost tree protection against diseases, pests and hazardous conditions. 

In addition to promoting tree growth, proper tree maintenance decreases the chances of property damage caused by falling branches or uprooted trees in severe weather or during flooding. As such, professional tree surgery services go beyond aesthetic purposes; they help safeguard trees from preventable damage.

The benefits of tree surgery

From a safety aspect of reducing branch overhangs that could cause damage to a property to increasing the value of a home due to improved aesthetics of your garden or landscape, tree surgery comes with many advantages. 

Tree surgery is an important and challenging task with which we have vast experience. It requires a great deal of knowledge and skill to understand the biology of trees, their productive life cycles, signs of health adversity, and how to take care of them properly. The process typically begins with an assessment phase to understand the tree’s current status, followed by using appropriate pruning and trimming tools and removing any diseased or damaged branches where necessary. Afterwards, healthcare, such as disease treatment or fertilisation, might be recommended. We will assess the condition and then act accordingly to extend the trees’ lifespan while minimising environmental disruption in a safe manner.

Tree Felling

What is tree felling?

Tree felling is performed by one of our dedicated arborists with years of experience and knowledge in understanding tree structures and best practices for removing them from their locations. Tree felling techniques involve either de-limbing a tree or directly cutting the trunk. These techniques require specialised equipment such as chainsaws, chippers or winches, depending on the size and condition of the tree being removed. 

Trees need to be felled responsibly to minimise soil erosion and habitat destruction. This means preserving surrounding trees, plants and wildlife while only removing what is necessary to create the desired outcome.

The process of tree felling

We are experts in tree felling. We’ll carefully assess the environment to evaluate various factors such as the species of tree, nearby hazards, and the clearance required for safe removal. We will then begin cutting down the tree precisely using specialised chainsaws, hand tools or machinery to ensure no additional damage occurs. Once the tree has been felled, we will remove it from site either in sections or by using our specialist chipping machine. We can completely remove the stump left over using our high-powered stump grinding machine, leaving you with a blank canvas.

Reasons to fell your trees

Felling trees can be an essential part of taking care of your property. Whether you’re preparing for a construction project or looking to improve the appearance and health of your garden and surroundings, we are equipped with the knowledge, experience and equipment necessary to remove any unwanted trees entirely. Additionally, regular maintenance from expert arborists helps ensure the safety and strength of surrounding trees by identifying potential hazards such as deadwood and misaligned branches. 

For those looking to maximise their land’s potential, felling trees can open up sunlit spaces that are difficult to reach and maintain. Beyond making room for new planting beds or outdoor features like patios, removing selected trees can make room for more usable green space. No matter what reasons you have for considering felling your trees, it’s important to consult experts before proceeding with your plans so that you can make informed decisions about their removal. We offer Free surveys and will be happy to discuss your needs at a convenient time.

Tree Cutting | Pruning and Trimming

When it comes to trees, it is essential to ensure they remain healthy and strong. Tree cutting, pruning and trimming are important steps in caring for trees as they help promote growth, safety and aesthetics. Trees that are not taken care of often suffer from disease or experience structural deficiencies, which may cause them to become a hazard within their surroundings. We offer an array of services that can help keep your trees in good health and condition for the long term. Our knowledgeable experts understand the importance of tree cutting, pruning and trimming alongside other techniques to ensure that each tree receives the treatments it needs for maintenance and overall longevity.

Cutting, pruning and trimming trees requires skill and precision to ensure they stay healthy while enhancing their aesthetics. Our operatives are trained in all aspects of tree management, providing removal and pruning services that will keep your outdoor space both safe and aesthetically pleasing. 

Our pruning services can help reduce the size of large branches, minimise the spread of dangerous or unwanted diseases, and provide better access to sunlight for healthier growth. Cutting a tree back from its surroundings can also help maintain visibility and improve the overall look of your landscaping. With professional cutting, pruning, and trimming services, you will get superior workmanship that keeps your trees healthy for years to come.

If you have any further questions about tree cutting, pruning or trimming or would like to book a free consultation with one of our arborists, please don’t hesitate to contact us anytime. We serve residential and commercial clients.

Crown Reduction

Crown reduction is a pruning technique used to reduce a tree’s crown’s overall size and density. Crown reduction can help to improve the growth of other branches by giving them more light and air exposure. Using crown reduction techniques on certain trees, such as maples, can also help reduce their sap production.

Our highly-trained experts are dedicated to providing our customers with the highest quality of service. When performing a crown reduction, we always strive to retain the natural aesthetic beauty of the tree while removing any dead or diseased branches. We will usually begin by gaining an overall view of the tree crown and then prune back extensively to thin out any dense areas. We also perform intentional shaping to balance out a lopsided crown. Depending on the situation, we may also insert metal frameworks (such as copper rods or braces) into strategic points and pruning techniques to create more volume and achieve the desired shape. As specialist tree surgeons, you can always trust us to ensure your treen crown lifting needs are taken care of quickly and efficiently.

After crown reduction, ensuring your trees are kept healthy and safe is a top priority. It’s essential to immediately address any newly exposed areas of the tree, especially where branches have been removed, as these spots are more prone to infection. Firstly, it’s vital that all cuts made to the tree during the crown reduction process are correctly sealed using a pruning sealer or wound dressing. If applicable, mulch should be applied around the base of the tree and any other exposed areas of the root system – this will help protect against weed growth and provide insulation and resource availability to keep your tree in good condition. Finally, bacterial diseases must be monitored during the following few years. If you suspect your tree may be suffering from infection or disease, contact us as soon as possible so we can come by and offer an expert diagnosis.

For all your crown reduction needs, we are here to help. We will work with you to determine if crown reduction is the right solution for your tree and then walk you through the process so that you know what to expect. After we are finished, we will provide you with aftercare instructions so that you can keep your tree healthy and happy for years to come. Give us a call today to schedule a free site survey.

Stump Grinding

Stump grinding is a fantastic service that provides a neat finish after removing a tree from its natural surroundings. The technique works by using a specialised grinding machine to grind the tree stump into small wood chips, which can be quickly and safely removed from your property. Not only does it make the tree roots easier to remove, but it also ensures that no stumps remain visible. Tree stumps can be very unsightly, but our stump removal service ensures you are left with a blank canvas, ready for whatever you have planned.

Tree stumps can be difficult to remove with conventional means, such as manual digging or introducing poisons which is not good practice. Our stump grinding equipment has cutting blades that grind the wood extremely quickly. The power of these machines enables our operatives to grind away at the stump until it is gone, leaving behind nothing but wood chips. It’s an effective and environmentally friendly way of removing an old stump without causing any damage to your property, thus making it a popular choice for many of our residential and commercial clients.

Our team is composed of experienced and knowledgeable professional arborists who are highly skilled in grinding stumps, both large and small. We offer competitive rates and use state-of-the-art machinery to ensure efficient and safe results with minimal disruption to the surrounding environment. All our work is carefully inspected, guaranteeing a quality service to all of our clients.

We have years of experience in stump grinding and can get the job done quickly, efficiently, and affordably. Contact us today for a free quote and to discuss your stump removal needs.

Hedge Cutting

Hedge cutting is an intricate process that requires the skill and precision of a specialist with the knowledge of the specific hedge variety and its individual needs and a well-honed sense of aesthetics to create a beautiful, even shape. To start with, our team will use a petrol strimmer or shears to cut back your hedge to refine its overall size and shape. We will remove any dead wood or diseased patches before commencing a final cut with sharp blades or shears for a crisp finish. Our careful process will ensure your hedge is left looking amazing, leaving you with neatly manicured shrubs that will enhance curb appeal and make your entire landscape stand out from the rest.

Knowing when and why to have your hedges cut is an integral part of correct garden maintenance. Hedges are essential borders for properties, offering privacy and an excellent aesthetic for your outdoor space. However, overgrown hedges can become unsightly, obstructive and even dangerous if not taken care of properly. Regular cutting of your hedges helps promote healthy growth and keeps them from becoming unmanageable.

Hedge cutting is an essential part of maintaining an attractive and healthy garden. As tree specialists we recommend having your hedges regularly cut to ensure they continue to look their best. This will also keep them from growing too wide or tall, allowing adequate light for your flowers and shrubs. It is always best to cut back any overhanging branches before the start of each new season.

Hedge cutting will ensure your hedges remain healthy and looking their best. Contact us today to learn more about our hedge-trimming services or to schedule a free consultation.
