Our Services

Tree Work

From complete removals to tree reductions, we offer an experienced and safe operation. Trees can very quickly out grow their situation which means they may need some attention. We provide a number of services for all types of tree work.

Tree & Shrub Reductions

Trees & Shrubs can very quickly become overgrown, touch buildings or block out light. If this is the case, we can “tastefully” reduce these for you, giving many more years of amenity value.

Stump Removal

Stumps can cause trip hazards in lawns and pathways, as well as preventing fences, paths and driveways being installed. If you are thinking of extending your house, it can often be beneficial to remove a tree completely to avoid additional building costs for deeper foundations.

Tree reduction

Stumps can cause trip hazards inn lawns and pathways. Be unsightly in borders and harbour pathogens and fungi than can cause surrounding plants and trees it become infected and dirty. Removing stumps can also facilitate the erecting of fences, walls and the laying of paths and driveways.

Stump grinding

In the case of building extensions it is very often better to get rid of nearby trees that may adversely effect the new building resulting in deeper foundations having to be built. Removing trees and stumps can save thousands of pounds in building costs.
