Tree Surgery

We provide emergency removal and remedial works to make areas safe from dangerous trees and obstructions. A comprehensive risk assessment is undertaken for all tree care and felling works.

The risk assessment also outlines how we manage obstructions such as overhead Utilities, public and private highways, buildings etc.

Warning signs and cordons are deployed to shut off any public areas. Tree felling is carefully planned and inclement weather conditions taken into account.

Conservation and TPO Trees

If your tree is in a conservation area or has a tree preservation order (TPO) applied to it, we can liaise with the local authority and their tree officer on your behalf.

We can apply for the planning application or simply undertake the resulting works once planning has been obtained.

Using machinery to remove trees

Tree Surgery

Tree cutting and removal of wind-fallen trees and branches is carried out using specialist cutting and safety equipment, for example: sectional dismantling which is the process of removing branches from a tree in a safe and controlled manner using certified techniques and industry specific ropes.

Formative tree pruning is sometimes necessary with some species to create a clear trunk and a well-spaced canopy of branches.

Crown Reduction

Tree crown reduction is the process of removing branch tips, pruning back to a growth point further down the branch. not often exceeding 100mm (4”)

This may be carried out to remove dead, diseased and damaged branches, or simply to reduce the overall size of the tree it does not always mean an asymmetrical finish is achieved – improves light and reduces shadowing.

Pollarding s a method of pruning that keeps trees and shrubs smaller than they would naturally grow. It is normally started once a tree or shrub reaches a certain height, and regular pollarding will restrict the plant to that height. The initial removal of the top of a young tree at a prescribed height to encourage multi stem branching from that point, or “bolling”.

Crown Lifting

Crown lifting is the removal of the lowest branches. Crown lifting should not normally include the removal of large branches growing directly from the stem as this can leave large wounds which can become extensively decayed jeopardising the trees health. – improves clearance for access and prevents damage to vehicles and the tree.

Crown Thinning

Crown thinning is the targeted removal of a specified (upto 30%) amount of smaller/tertiary branches, often at the outer crown, to produce a uniform canopy around an evenly spaced branch scaffold. It is mostly applied only to broad-leaved species -improves light penetration without reducing the height and stature of a tree.

Crown Cleaning – Deadwood Removal

This refers to the removal of dead, dying or diseased wood in the tree’s crown. It also involves attention to snags or re-pruning of branch stubs, unwanted climbing plants and accumulated wind-blown debris. Usually undertaken for safety reasons, dead wooding a tree prevents the failure of deceased branches. This prevents damage to cars and improves safety of the tree in high footfall areas.

Felling and Sectional Dismantle

Whilst we always try to maintain a healthy tree and environment, often a tree has been planted in the wrong location, is diseased or declining or is unsafe. Removal can be done with felling on certain site but often by sectional dismantle using climbers or a mobile elevated work platform (M.E.W.P).

Very impressed with Dr Stump; quick, professional, courteous, tidy and VERY good at what they do! – Very impressed with the way they work and the amount they can get done in a short time. – Highly recommended.

Paul Hallatt

Really good company, very reliable, came and removed quite a few stumps from our woodland very quickly and efficiently, and careful about not doing damage to the surrounding area. Highly recommended, we will use them again.

Jane Polden

I would recommend this company to anyone they have just taken 7 large poplar trees down for us. Arrived as arranged, a pleasure to have in our garden for several days, then left the site neat and tidy.

Mia Potter

A great company and excellent service, they were brilliant from quote to completion and would definitely use again!
