Our tree surgery services include:
This is a specific type of tree work involving the removal of upper branches of species in the Surrey and West Sussex areas. Pollarding promotes the growth of a dense canopy. Traditionally, this practice occurs in pasture systems because pruning a tree at this height prevents wildlife from eating the fresh shoots.
This is a woodland management technique involving the regular cutting of trees to near-ground level and allowing them to regenerate. This practice produces a sustainable source of timber, which we can supply and deliver to customers in Cranleigh, Godalming and Guildford for a small, affordable fee.
A dense leaf and branch structure in the tree canopy can block out natural sunlight. Our tree surgery work sees selected branches removed to improve light filtration, and to reduce the sail effect of heavy crowns during windy conditions. This prevents the risk of trees falling on properties and passers-by.
This form of tree work enables us to reduce the amount of mechanical stress on individual limbs or even the entire tree. It also helps to control the spread and height of the canopy, ensuring it remains suitable for its immediate environment.
If other forms of tree surgery cannot save a tree from disease or damage, felling might be necessary. We perform directional felling in open spaces around Cranleigh, Godalming and Guildford, producing a safe fall in a predetermined direction without the added risk of personal injury or property damage.
If a tree that needs felling is too close to a home, an outbuilding or a public access route, we can perform sectional dismantling instead of directional felling. This tree surgery work sees operatives climbing the tree using rigging equipment, ropes and pulleys to take it down in sections, top to bottom.
We also perform stump grinding on felled trees to eliminate unsightly remnants and the associated tripping hazards.
