Tree Preservation Orders and Conservation Areas

Local authorities use these statutory tools to control works to trees. The rules concerning TPO’s and Conservation Areas are quite specific and can seem complicated. We assess each tree with the relevant authority before works begin to ensure that we are compliant and can submit and administer the relevant applications on your behalf.

When is a felling licence required?

In some instances a felling licence may be required from the Forestry Commission. There are very specific requirements for a felling licence, call us if you are unsure and we can arrange the process on your behalf.

Why Choose Us For Your Tree Felling?

What other tree surgery services do you offer?


Pollarding keeps trees and shrubs smaller than they would naturally grow by removing the top of a tree at a specific height, this also encourages multi-stem branching.

Tree stump grinding

We can remove problematic tree stumps by grinding down the main stump to below ground level and removing any extensive root systems with specialist equipment.

Tree crown work

The purpose of tree crown work is to maintain the form and structural integrity of the tree by reducing its height or spread by pruning back the leaders and branch terminals.


Coppicing is a proven traditional woodland management method that focuses on stimulating new tree growth by repeatedly cutting it back to near ground level.

Avant hire

We also now offer our Avant 640 and 755i for hire with timber grab, tree shear attachment, log grapple, and materials bucket.
