About our Tree Surgery services

Trees are living organisms, susceptible to disease and ill health. Professional tree maintenance in the form of tree surgery is a reliable way to promote good health and longevity, which is great for the tree and reduces the risk of the tree becoming a risk for humans too.

What is tree surgery?

Tree surgery, also called arboriculture, is the professional management of individual trees. It differs from woodland management and forestry, which focus on collective tree management.

Arboricultural services are designed to keep trees healthy and safe, and cover all the basic skills of arboriculture, like crown reduction, crown thinning, hedge trimming and tree felling.

If you’re looking for tree maintenance in your area, our expert tree surgeons will be able to help. We’ll work with you to understand what needs doing, then we’ll explain to you in clear terms what the job will entail before providing a no obligation quote.

We are ARB approved tree surgeons with all the tools and expertise required to deliver results. We’ve carried out arboriculturalist jobs for domestic and commercial clients of all shapes and sizes, so whether you’re looking for aesthetically sensitive tree contractors or something else, get in touch with our team.

What do tree surgeons do?

Tree surgeons, also called arborists, do what needs to be done to keep trees healthy, including crown reduction, crown thinning, tree felling, pruning and more.

What is an arborist?

Arborist is the proper title for a tree surgeon, and denotes the requisite knowledge in all aspects of the profession including tree biology, aesthetics, climbing best practice, safety and aftercare.

Long term maintenance and tree care

Some jobs – for example those with heavy reductions and pollards, or those to manage subsidence issues – would require regular maintenance every 3-5 years.

As well as tree surgery we can offer advise on and action long term maintenance programs for your trees.
