We aim to protect and look after trees whenever possible, especially mature specimens that may have been around for hundreds of years and have a really beneficial effect on our environment.
So you can guess that felling trees isn't always our favourite job, although there are many occasions where it is necessary and can be done without any detriment to nature.
We often remove trees that have outgrown their welcome, have been planted in the wrong place or need to be taken out for development purposes. That's why we advise you to think carefully before planting trees that could grow very large in a relatively short period of time. It's much cheaper and easier to plant in a suitable position than to remove mature trees at a later date!
Safe Tree Removal
You can imagine that chopping down trees can be a hazardous pursuit if not done properly with the appropriate safety gear and training. That's why we employ qualified tree surgeons who know what they're doing and have your safety and that of the team in mind at all times. Please don't employ untrained and reckless people to remove your trees.
Oak Tree Removal
All trees have a natural lifespan or can become diseased and when this happens we can remove oak trees in a safe and efficient manner. Some of our precious ancient trees are sadly being affected by environmental factors, such as pollution from aircraft dumping fuel or emissions from vehicles in some areas. And there are always plenty of insects and diseases ready to strike and cause damage. Sometimes these can be stopped before it's too late, but if necessary we can fell oaks when there's no option.
Ash Tree Removal
Unfortunately many of our beautiful ash trees are being affected by ash dieback. In bad cases they may have to be removed and we can accommodate this and dispose of the wood.
There are many types of hedging in the UK, from ancient country hedgerows that may have been around for hundreds of years, to formal box hedging and a multitude of hedges in between.
We can take care of your hedges, trimming and cutting as required, and grubbing out or removing them if necessary. It's important to take into account nesting birds when removing hedges, so this can't be done in the spring.
