Tree stump removal is one of the most difficult tasks facing the hands-on gardener and is definitely a job reserved for folks who don’t mind hard exercise – especially when dealing with established stumps. There are several ways to remove a tree stump and some methods are more suitable than others depending on the size, position, species and age of the stump.

We use 3 main methods

  • 1. Digging it out
  • 2. Splitting the stump then digging it out
  • 3.Using a stump grinder

For larger stumps in awkward positions such as close to walls, paths and foundations, a stump grinder is the best option. A stump grinder uses a spinning blade fitted with carbide tipped teeth that scrape away at the stump. Bear in mind that a stump grinder can only work to a limited depth, normally up to 10-12 inches. Stump grinders are notorious for sending stones and debris flying all over the place at high speed so we recommend you keep pets indoors.



As expert tree surgeons we use this method when a tree has grown too large for the area it was intended. Crown reduction is a reduction in the total size of the tree from height width and thickness of foliage . This service is used for a variety of reasons from wind reduction or to let more light through. It is a combination of crown thinning, crown lifting and crown re shaping.



Hedge pruning and cutting can be done all year round with some species requiring up to 3 times a year . We have all the right equipment from the right ladders and scaffold to the correct cutting devices. When required we are also able to completely dismantle the hedge but please be aware that some hedges and pivots can have similar laws to them as trees . If a complete removal is required please make sure no laws are broken.
