About Us

This will give you an idea of the type of work that I can undertake for you, but the list is not exhaustive, so if you can’t see exactly what you think you need then please give me a call.

Pruning established trees - you may want to tidy up the ‘look’ of your trees (pruning is typically used for fruit trees)

Crown reduction / thinning - to let more light into your garden or home, by taking selective branches out of the top of the tree while maintaining the shape of the tree
   
Crown raising - this would remove the lower branches of the tree.  For example, you may not be able to get under a tree to mow the lawn, this would remove those low branches and make your garden space more usable

Pruning overhanging / dangerous branches - there may be branches overhanging your neighbour's garden, or branches that have become too heavy or damaged and are at risk of breaking off (which could be dangerous to anyone underneath and could also damage the health of the tree)

Dead wooding - removal of dead branches to reduce the risk of branches falling, and prevent decay progressing further into the tree

Tree felling - when you want to completely remove a tree, for example, if it’s in the wrong position or has grown too big for it’s environment

Tree dismantling - when you want a tree to be removed completely, but it’s in a confined space which would mean that ‘felling’ was not a safe option

Removal of hazardous trees - a risk assessment may be required depending upon the location of the tree, to ensure that a safe removal can be achieved and that the appropriate safety measures are taken

Stump grinding - this is the removal of the root ball.  The root ball is what is left in the ground once a tree has been felled or dismantled

Tree planting - you may want to plant a new tree, to replace one that has had to be removed

Hedge trimming - keeping hedges under control (typically conifer hedges).  This can be either reducing the height of the hedge, or reshaping the hedge.  If this is undertaken on a regular basis - once a year is usually sufficient - you will stop the hedge from becoming too wide or tall
