If you would like a whole tree to be removed, we can provide different services specific to your needs. These include felling or dismantling, depending on which is more appropriate for your tree and the environment. Any size tree can be taken down and all materials and waste taken away.



If a tree is becoming too big and you would like to reduce it, we can help. It may be blocking out the light. growing too close to your property or buildings, or just getting out of hand. Services include crown lifting, crown thinning, crown reduction, all will serve to suit you whilst being sympathetic to the tree health and ensuring proper tree care. These services will allow you to have a beautiful tree to enjoy. a) crown lifting – this involves removing the bottom branches. This is usually done in order to clear space for a pathway or driveway. b) crown thinning – this involves decreasing the leaf area. This will allow a lot more light into your property and solve the issue if the tree is blocking your views. c) crown reduction – this involves taking back the outer parts of the canopy. This will make the overall size of the tree smaller.
