Although we always try to preserve the lives of healthy trees, safety remains our paramount concern. Our goal is to eliminate the dangers that affect the safety of property and people.

After felling, we use specialist machinery to remove stump remnants and make surrounding areas as safe as possible.

What We Offer
Holding over 18 years of experience, our experienced tree surgeons have a plethora of skills capable of completing a wide range of tree services across Guildford. Our professional team undertakes work for both commercial and private clients, check out our extensive range of quality services below:
The crown lifting procedure covers the removal of lower limbs and prepares for the removal of other branches in the future. It's also used to reduce the weight of a tree and allow more light to pass through the branches.
This service is perfect if trees are preventing light from getting through, or if they’re obstructing traffic or pedestrians, so contact us today for help!
Crown thinning allows for the removal of secondary branches to achieve uniform limb structures without affecting the size or shape of a tree. The process improves light penetration and lowers wind resistance.
Tree surgeons use crown reduction to reduce the size of the trees overall canopy, which is the natural spread and height of the tree crown. The process sees the ends of selected branches removed practically without compromising the tree shape, and can help minimise the possibility of pathogens and disease infecting the tree.
Traditionally, pollarding refers to the removal of limbs and branches from the trunk. If a mature specimen hasn’t undergone the procedure in the past, it’s unwise to use it in the future due to the large wounds that can endanger long-term tree health.
A more up-to-date definition of pollarding covers the regular cutting back of small branches on an annual or biannual basis to form a pollard head at a specific point.
Formative pruning establishes a solid branch structure or creates a desired shape during the earlier years of tree growth. It also corrects weaknesses and defects as early as possible to prevent problems from arising in the future.
Drop Crotch Pruning
Tree surgeons use drop crotch pruning to shorten branches by pruning back to a lateral limb. The remaining limb must be a minimum of one-third in diameter of the removed section.
Tree surgeons sometimes recommend branch removal to eliminate potential hazards, improve lines of vision, or allow access for vehicles and machinery. This is often done in conjunction with detailed surveys and an arboricultural report.
Deadwood removal is a procedure that sees dead limbs and branches cut from the tree canopy. The process covers everything from small branches to the biggest limbs and creates safer woodland environments for people and wildlife.
The target pruning method is an overall pattern of care that focuses on the needs of the tree, directing pruning by removing material that is no longer contributing to the tree’s health or beauty.
Shade-out Die Back
Rubbing and Crossing Branches
Narrow Crocheting Structures
Root Crown Shoots
The largest cuts are made first. As the deadwood is removed the tree is reduced to a more sustainable form and it is easier to assess its needs. This is a continuing process throughout the pruning. As material is removed, the tree is observed and more corrections are identified.
Tree Felling Guildford
This is the complete felling of a tree to ground level and often includes the careful removal and lowering of branches to minimise impact. Rigging techniques and equipment help the work team to do this safely. Cranes are used in situations where it is otherwise not possible to safely remove trees and branches.
Tree Stump Removal in guildford
Stump removal may be done by hand or machine, depending on size. It is not always appropriate to remove every stump, as they provide an important habitat for some endangered UK insects, including stag beetles.
Stumps infected with honey fungus should always be removed to avoid the propagation and spread of this aggressive pathogen.
