Home / Tree (Arboricultural) Services  / Tree Surgery

Our fully qualified and experienced tree surgeons will sympathetically carry out all tree surgery with minimal disruptions. We ensure full health and safety and environmental assessments are completed before starting any tree surgery work, following all relevant risk and method statements. We can access tree canopies using LOLER checked ropes and harnesses or mobile elevating work platforms.

Our proactive tree management plans help landowners to fulfil their “Duty of Care”. By using our managed programme of works, we can save you from having to pay over the odds for reactive callouts. A healthy looking tree can still be diseased from the inside and its collapse could cause property damage, life changing injuries or even death.

Common Tree Surgery tasks include:

Felling trees is not always as easy as it sounds – working within confined spaces with buildings nearby can often make tree felling seem like a tricky business.
 
Twig’s tree surgeons will always undertake a comprehensive risk assessment to minimise any chance of collateral damage and to ensure our clients are aware of any potential dangers.
 
To help protect Britain’s forests, a felling licence from the Forestry Commission can be required to fell larger quantities of trees. It is an offence to fell trees without a licence if any exemption does not apply. More commonly, trees have Tree Protection Orders (TPO’s) or are within Conservation areas. We can check both of these points with the local planning authority and obtain the relevant approval if required.

Some trees require a crown reduction, this means the reduction of the complete outline dimension of the canopy of the tree, from tips of limbs and branches towards the main trunk.

The removal of a proportion of the small secondary live woody growth (in addition to weak, damaged, dead, crossing or duplicated branches and soft growth) to reduce the leaf area of the canopy.

The removal of all soft growth and branches or parts thereof, within defined limits. Crown lifting may result in the canopy base being not at one single level but stepped to allow for different clearances, for example where a tree overhangs both a foot way and a road, where different height clearances are required.

Removal from the tree of dead, dying or diseased branch wood or broken branches. This wood can cause risks to those using the space below as it can become dislodged.

When trees are felled or fall, their stumps can be removed to enable further ground works. A stump grinder or stump cutter removes tree stumps by means of a rotating cutting disk that chips away the wood.

A veteran tree can be defined as: “a tree that is of interest biologically, culturally or aesthetically because of its age, size or condition” (visit Natural England website for more information on best practice guidelines on managing veteran trees), Twig can advise and prepare a management plan for ancient trees and woodland.
