Tree Surgery - arborology

Crown reduction, thinning

and raising

These 3 techniques are used to enhance existing trees. They are designed to improve the look of your trees, promote healthy growth, stop over growing and allow more light to reach both inner branches and the ground beneath the tree.

Confined space felling

The felling of trees in restricted spaces, usually near outbuildings or houses. Trees are felled in sections and lowered to the ground. This procedure is carried out by professionals ensuring correct techniques and safety.

Stump grinding

We have a range of three RAYCO stump grinding machines available. The equipment is used to remove stumps of any shape and size. The stump will be ground down to approximately 12” below ground level allowing planting or hard landscaping on the area.
