Planting Trees

If you are thinking of planting a tree in your garden then a tree surgeon would initially give you advice on the best type of tree for you to buy and the best area of your garden to plant the tree in. We can then will work to prepare the area the tree is going to be planted in by handling such things as the types of mulch and dirt preparation areas for the tree. This is important because the first few days of when a tree has been re-planted is one of the most important times of the tree’s life.

Mulching Services

Our tree surgery team can also advise you and help you with the correct type and amount of mulch required to keep your garden in tip top condition. We will deliver the mulch to your home and lay it for you. Mulch is ideal to be used around a tree to support its growth and stability.

Stump Grinding or Removal

If you have an old sump in your garden that has started to decay or is infested with bugs then we can remove the stump and treat the area if required. Depending on the size of the stump and the roots that are attached to it our tree surgeon will decide on whether to actually remove the stump completely or whether to grind the stump. In stump grinding your tree stump will be ground right down so that it is well below the surface of ur garden enabling you to develop any type of landscaping projects in that area.
