We offer quick and cost effective master tree surgeons and tree felling / tree removal experts for both residential and commercial tree felling.
Section tree felling and tree removal will be used in situations where there is a risk of damage to property, harm to the public or specific requirements to your tree felling in Edinburgh project. This tree felling work consists of the entire removal of the tree, in sections. Each tree felling section will be dismantled using the step cut, break off and with the use of lowering ropes, ensuring the tree can be lowered to the ground safely.
Straight felling of trees in Edinburgh is the removal of a felled tree as a single unit. Straight felling trees process will be used in situations where there is no risk of damage to property or danger to the public. Straight felled trees will be guided by the use of pulling ropes and felling wedges to ensure a perfectly controlled fall is achieved.
We take great pride in our tree surgery work and will leave your completed Edinburgh tree surgeons project looking nice and tidy. We can remove all tree works materials and dispose of these materials ethically.
Through constant training in the latest tree surgery and tree crowning techniques, and investing / maintaining quality equipment we can offer tree pruning, tree care and tree crowning of the highest standard. This ensures the perfect result. 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 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.
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 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.
When your hedge or tree needs a back, top and sides trim we have years of experience trimming trees / hedge trimming. We constantly invest in training for the latest techniques of hedge / tree trimming and maintain our equipment to the highest standard.
Hedge trimming is an art form and we have worked on the most complex / high hedges and trees. We would love to discuss your hedge trimming and tree trimming project. So feel free to contact us.
Using the latest tree pollarding techniques and equipment our qualified & professional tree surgeons can perform the heaviest tree pollarding procedures. 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.
We invest heavily in professional shredding equipment and maintain our equipment to the highest standard.
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.
