As part of our garden maintenance and landscaping services, we provide expert tree care. We are experienced tree surgeons, carrying out all manner of arboriculture to keep domestic and commercial sites safe, functional and attractive. Tree maintenance is a difficult and dangerous task for those who aren’t properly trained, but we make sure all health and safety regulations are met whilst delivering professional services in Godalming and Guildford.
Tree surgeons perform a variety of tasks, which can form part of larger landscaping projects, or standalone services. There are many reasons why people require our skills, from diseased plants to overgrown foliage. Whatever issues you are experiencing, we have the solution.
Tree Felling & Removal – The Garden Tamer undertakes the removal of trees in small sections or by straight felling. Whilst we always aim to retain trees where possible, sometimes it is necessary to remove them. This could be because they are unsuitable for the space they are currently in, or because they pose a threat to nearby buildings.
Tree Pollarding – This is a heavy form of pruning where tree surgeons remove the upper branches, promoting dense foliage and primarily used as a way to maintain trees at a certain height. Not all trees are suitable for pollarding, and our specialist team will always advise on the best options for each site in Godalming and Guildford.
Crown Reduction – Branches are cut back to an appropriate length and growth point, controlling the height and spread of trees. We maintain a pleasing and natural shape, as well as ensuring a suitable size for the environment.
Crown Thinning – By selectively removing branches, we increase light penetration and air movement without affecting the natural size and shape of trees. Thinning includes the removal of dead wood and lowers the chances of a tree falling in high winds. It can also help slow down growth rate.
Regular thinning helps customers avoid unnecessary crown reductions and our experienced team advise on the appropriate level.
Stump Removal – There are several ways to remove tree stumps if they are too large to dig out by hand. A stump grinder is an effective tool that we regularly use to remove stumps and their roots. It is also possible to poison tree stumps, after which they slowly decay over time.
Tree & Shrub Pruning – Adopting a variety of techniques, our tree surgeons offer regular, considerate pruning to prolong the life and appearance of plants.
These are just some of the services we frequently provide as professional and reliable tree surgeons in Godalming and Guildford. For a comprehensive list and advice tailored to your needs, contact us today.
No matter the project, we always check if Tree Preservation Orders are in place, of if plants are in a conservation area, obtaining necessary permits before starting work.
