One of our specialist areas, full crown reduction, part reductions, weight reductions.
Whilst we consider tree removal as the last resort, often there is no other alternative, we then offer sectional felling using hand held techniques, latest rigging equipment to ensure you get the very best and safest sectional fell. For the very dangerous tree we will sometimes use a mobile platform or cranes.
The removal of lower branches to lift the crown to the required height e.g. 5.2 m over a road for buses.
Branches are removed from within the tree crown in order to make it uniformly less dense. The natural shape of the tree is completely unaffected but the ‘Sail Effect’ (wind resistance) is reduced and more light allowed filtering through. This procedure is usually stipulated in terms of a percentage (rarely more than 30%).
Crown Clean & Dead Wooding
Crown clean is the removal of duplicating branches, crossing & defected branches.
The removal of dead or dying branches usually for safety and aesthetics reasons.
Removing a substantial amount of the tree crown to a good structure and then continuing with this management every 2-5 years.
Hedge Cutting & Trimming
Hedges of any size can be topped and trimmed to your specific dimensions.
Remove trees and shrub from brown field land or allocated construction sites – provides access for future construction and compliant with legal wildlife protection schemes
The formation of a healthy stem and branch framework in very young trees. Achieved by carefully selecting and removing diseased wood, congested and rubbing branches and weak branch unions. Correct formative pruning can dramatically reduce the chances of disease, structural weakness and branch failure as the tree matures.
Veteran Tree Management
Veteran trees are ancient specimens in the final stage of their life. Because of their old age they provide us with significant biological, aesthetic and cultural interest. The vitality of veteran trees is normally slowing and they are frequently in a dangerous condition. As a result the temptation is often to remove them.
However, with careful planning and ongoing management We help you safely preserve your old trees in an attractive state. One of the most recent developments in veteran tree management that we try and employ where possible, is the use of Natural Fracture Techniques (NFT).
NFT’s are pruning cuts that mimic the jagged edges seen on broken branches following storm damage. As well as looking more natural than conventional pruning cuts they provide wonderful habitat for a myriad of fungi, insects and birds whilst removing any structural weakness.

Green Waste Recycling
The EU Landfill Directive is driving local authorities to reduce biodegradable waste input into landfill. This is because when green waste decomposes in a landfill site, it produces methane, which is a dangerous ‘greenhouse’ gas. It also produces chemicals, called leachates, which can pollute the local land and water. The Arborist Ltd processes the leaves, twigs, and branches, the brash through a wood chipper this material is then either sent for use as fuel for power stations, used by the council, Allotment, landscapers, equestrian people, or you the client can keep any chippings for mulch around your garden.
Logs can be cut up and left for the client or removed from site, later used as fire wood, see or service page.
Fuel & Oils
We only use Aspen Fuel because
Better for your health, the engine and our environment
when you use Aspen environmental petrol, you avoid dangerous substances such as benzene and aromatic hydrocarbons, substances that can cause serious health problems. The engine is also treated more kindly; for example, the spark plug and combustion chamber are kept cleaner. The petrol can be stored and even after long periods of no use; your engine starts without any problem if your tank has been filled with Aspen environmental petrol. Environmentally, there are numerous benefits, e.g. the formation of ground-level ozone (smog) is reduced by more than 50 %.
And we only use Plant Oil, because Plant oil Chain Saw Oil is a rapidly biodegradable, low fling, ecologically compatible lubricant, based on rapeseed oil – a renewable resource. Plant oil Chain Saw Oil is non-toxic and more than 90% biodegradable within 21 days, according to the CEC-L-33 test method. It does not harm forests or waterways and using Plant oil Chain Saw Oil ensures that chain saw operators are not subjected to the health risks associated with mineral oils.
