Tree Surgeon

Selection of our tree surgeon work. All of the work below was carried out by Squirrel Tree Services by fully trained and insured staff. Any questions or if you would like us to work with you, please get in touch.

  • Pruning – Selecting and removing potentially weak branches to help promote good healthy growth and shape.

  • Dead Wooding – Involves the removal of deadwood either for aesthetic reasons or on the grounds of safety. This reduces the risk of wood falling and causing damage to persons or property.

  • Crown Cleaning – Removal of dead, dying, diseased, crowded, weakly attached and low-vigor branches from the crown of a tree.

  • Crown Lifting – Removes the lower branches from a tree in order to provide clearance for buildings, vehicles, pedestrians and vistas.

  • Crown Thining – Removal of certain branches throughout the crown to create an even structure that allows greater light penetration and reduced wind resistance.

  • Crown Reduction – Conserving a tree that may be outgrowing a confined space through carefully reducing its overall size whilst keeping it’s shape.

  • Pollarding – Removing a percentage (normally between 25% and 40%) of the crown of a semi-mature tree. The re-growth is then removed at regular intervals to restrict both the height and spread of the tree.

  • Stump Grinding and Removal – Grinding the stump using specialised machinery to remove all visible traces to allow hard surfacing or replanting.

  • Felling – A complete removal of a tree down to ground level – provides access and sunlight.

  • Dangerous Tree Work – The removal of some or the entire tree which prevents personal injury or damage to property.

  • Shaping – A combination of pruning activities to give an overall better looking shape.

  • Hedge Maintenance – Overgrown Hedge Shaping, Hedge Cutting, General Hedge Trimming, Hedgerow Maintenance.
