Why do trees sometimes need to be felled?2020-11-10T16:52:00+00:00

Tree felling is the action of cutting down a tree to improve the safety an area or to prevent disease from spreading. Removing a tree from a public space or near a home is often a last resort when remedial work will not be enough to ensure safety for people, property or plants.

When is the best time to prune a tree?2020-11-10T16:51:40+00:00

We generally advise against pruning trees in spring, this is when the sap rises up and the leaves begin to come out. During autumn, trees draw back in the nutrients they need to survive the winter. Pruning in autumn can cause stress, resulting in disease or even death of the tree.

Customer testimonials

Three trees shortened in height quickly, and tidily. Couldn’t have been easier to deal with, and the bill even came down with slightly less work than anticipated! Highly recommended.

Anthony Robinson

Ali did a great job of trimming our tree. He was really friendly and helpful, arrived on time and cleared everything away afterwards, what more could you want? Highly recommended!
