Local Glasgow Tree Surgeon and Arborist Services

  • Tree Pruning & Climbing Tree Surgeons

Tree Pruning & Tree SurgeryTree pruning can sometimes be done from the ground or with the aid of mobile elevating work platforms. (MEWPs) But for many trees, pruning will involve a climber tree surgeon. This is a specialist tree surgeon who can climb high into the tree canopy with ropes a harness and a chainsaw.

There are a range of different types of pruning from crown reduction, crown shaping, crown thinning, and crown raising.

Depending on the type of tree, its health the light desired to pass through the canopy for the clearance required beneath the canopy our expert Glasgow tree surgeons can guide you to the best solution.

  • Tree Felling & Tree Removal

tree felling and tree removalTree felling services, sometimes called tree cutting services, are involved when an entire tree is either cut down in one piece if there is enough space to do so safely, or by dismantling the tree, branch by branch and section by section.

Usually working from the top down, a climbing tree surgeon can cut the tree into small sections and each section can be lowered to the ground with ropes. This is much safer than bringing down the whole tree in one go.

Once on the ground the branches and trunk sections can be further cut up if required and remove from the site.

  • Tree Stump Removal

tree stump removalOnce a tree has been felled and removed from site, the tree stump is still left in the ground. This can either be left in place or removed.

But if left in place it can sometimes become infected by a fungus which can kill neighboring trees and plants.

Tree surgeons can remove the stump with different methods depending on the size and situation of the tree. For smaller roots systems, they may be dug out or pulled out with a winch. Larger stumps can be mechanically ground down using a stump grinder or excavator.
