A Closer Look at Our Services


As your tree surgeons of choice, the services we provide carry a range of advantages. To discover which service best fits the needs of your project, we have outlined what each consists of below.


Crown Thinning – This tree surgery service involves the removal of small or tertiary branches, primarily in the outer crown area, in order to create a uniform foliage density. Crown thinning undertaken by experienced tree surgeons in Woking and Guildford has no impact on the overall shape or size of a tree. When complete, crown thinning reduces wind resistance and weight, and allows an increased amount of light to pass through the tree.


Crown Reduction – When carried out by qualified tree surgeons, crown reduction reduces the overall height and spread of a tree’s crown. This procedure helps to lessen mechanical stress across the tree while also tackling issues related to light loss and shading. This type of tree surgery has no bearing on the framework of the crown, but it does produce a smaller outline.


Crown Lifting – Involving the removal of lowermost branches, crown lifting increases the space between the crown and the floor immediately beneath it. The primary motivation behind this type of tree surgery for clients in Woking, Guildford and the surrounding locations is increasing access in the areas beneath a tree as well as allowing for more light transmission in the immediate vicinity.


Directional Felling – If a tree looks to be at risk of falling, tree surgeons strongly recommend undertaking directional felling in order to protect the general public. Through the use of a precise directional notch and felling cut, tree surgeons bring down trees whole. The notch and cut procedure creates a hinge which allows our team to fell the tree in the safest direction possible. This can only be performed in areas with no surrounding property.


Sectional Dismantling – As tree surgeons, we undertake this procedure when an unhealthy, dying or dangerous tree needs to be felled in built-up areas of Woking, Guildford and the neighbouring areas. With little space to bring the tree down whole safely, we remove it in sections, working from the top down. We carefully lower each branch or segment with the use of ropes, ensuring that it reaches the ground without causing any damage or harm. As environmentally conscious tree surgeons, we recycle materials from tree felling in the form of firewood and log sales.


Stump Grinding – Through the use of specially-designed, high-power machinery, our tree surgeons grind unsightly, dangerous tree stumps to an agreed-upon depth below the soil line or remove them completely.


Dead Wooding – This procedure involves the removal of non-living branches that have succumbed to a natural ageing process or external influences. Due to deadwood providing essential habitats to a range of animals, we only remove areas that represent a risk to property and people in Woking, Guildford and across the Surrey area.


Formative Pruning – By undertaking formative pruning on young trees, experienced tree surgeons can begin the process of shaping a desired growth pattern. This tree surgery procedure is particularly useful for fruit trees that tend to produce crowded, cluttered crowns with low yields.
