We offer a free, no-obligation consultation so please feel free to contact us to arrange a suitable time and discuss your tree surgery project.

An arborist or tree surgeon can be defined as:

"A person who prunes and treats old or damaged trees in order to preserve them."

We can remove all the waste and dispose of it ethically by shredding all material to make a high-quality garden mulch or we can cut the wood/branches to the size you require for your own woodpile.

Health & Safety

We take our Health and Safety of your tree surgery project very seriously and if we can't complete the project safely (as highlighted in our risk assessment policy), we won't start until the health and safety issue is resolved. We have public liability insurance.

tree pruning & tree crowning

tree pruning Edinburgh

We are friendly tree surgeons, and carry out tree pruning / tree crowning across Edinburgh and Midlothian.

Each tree will be assessed in relation to its size, shape, condition, species and surrounding trees. All tree crowning and tree pruning will be carried out to ensure the tree is left in a acceptable, well balanced and safe condition. All large limbs will be lowered to the ground using ropes / slings. Diseased, damaged and dead branches will be pruned, crowned back to its collar. With crossed branches they will be pruned / crowned appropriately.

stump removal

Stump grinding and tree stump removal consists of the removal of the tree stump and any lateral roots of the tree. We use a combination of hand tools or a machine (stump grinder) to remove your tree stump. Stump removal / stump grinding removes the stump to a depth of 150mm through 300mm. We will backfill the resulting hole with soil or stump grinding waste.

tree planting

We plant many trees across Edinburgh and Midlothian every year. We can provide a variety of tree planting and tree sourcing options using only the finest quality products. Our friendly & professional tree surgeons can plant trees at your private or commercial property in Edinburgh and Midlothian.

We will dig a hole that is bigger than the root ball - generally 1 and 2/3rds the size of the root ball. This tree will be planted into the hole and then back-filled with soil, compost and bone meal. The tree will then be twin staked with two ties. High-quality mulch will be added to your newly planted tree pit to minimise water loss and prevent weed growth.

tree pollarding Edinburgh

tree pollarding

We cover the whole of Edinburgh and Midlothian for your tree pollarding project.

Pollarding of a tree is the most drastic form of tree pruning. For some species (such as poplar or willow) in the wrong environment, this form of pruning is essential so as they do not become a nuisance.

Tree Preservation Order (TPO)

During our estimate we can help you decide weather the tree services you require are protected by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) or if your property is in a Conservation Area. If the tree is not covered by a TPO or in a Conservation Area you do not require permission from the Council. The council web site has some information about tree services.
