Tree Removal and Tree Felling Needs?
Tree felling (likewise referred to as Tree Cutting)
is that perfect situation where there is nothing in the location that an entire tree's felling could impact.
The typical scenario, though, is that the tree or trees are in close proximity to housing, cables, fences, railways, etc. In this instance, "section felling" is executed where we remove a section at a time, gradually and safely, until we are down at ground level.
When safely down, we slice and chip the tree and take it away from the site. Should you want to keep the tree in the shape of roundels, then for an additional cost, we can saw the tree to roundel size for you.
Please keep in mind that only parts of the tree will be suitable for logs, so chipping and removal will still be required.
A number of points to note.
We can't cut a tree down if birds or bats currently live there. Only when the tree is empty can we start the tree cutting service
2) If there is any type of doubt about the tree being removed/reduced then the local authority should grant permission to remove/reduce it. There may be a conservation order or similar. If you acquire approval prior to us attending, it could save you money and time.
Should you require any support in submitting your request, we can assist.
Sometimes trees have to be removed. It's a sad but unfortunate fact. To ease our conscience, we plant two trees for every one we cut down.
It's good for sustainability and the environment.

How about some Tree Surgery?
The majority of the growth occurs in the upper crown of a tree, and crown lifting, removal of some of the lower branches, leads to the following :
- Enhanced light for your property or any shrubs and plants hiding below
- Simpler access to roads, footpaths, etc
- Extra clearance from overhead lines etc
It should be kept in mind that, for the wellbeing of the tree, a complete and thorough investigation should be carried out prior. Older fully grown trees, for example, should seldom be lifted. Similarly, special care needs to be taken when larger branches are removed, which could affect the look, balance, and health of the tree.
Crown thinning the canopy of a tree is an acknowledged, recognised method to improve its wellness and aesthetics.
The benefits of crown thinning consist of :
Enhanced light to your garden and property
Allows wind to flow better through the canopy of the tree (less resistance)
Decreased load on the tree
There are circumstances where crown thinning is not suggested. For example, the tree has root problems, and here we would consider a crown reduction.
For forming, shaping, and crown reduction, specific methods are used when the tree would benefit from a height or spread reduction. We utilise selective trimming techniques that are determined by the species of the tree.
Decreasing the tree's size and weight makes the tree more robust and more capable of surviving in adverse weather conditions.
At Lanarkshire Tree Servicing, we will advise on the most suitable way to shape or reduce, which will meet your needs and the tree's health needs.
Dead wooding is crucial in any tree to remove the danger of potential injury to someone or potential property damage. It is likewise essential for the tree's health. We focus on the dead, damaged, or infected branches and decayed and structurally weak limbs.
Stump Removal - What's the Best Way?
There are numerous methods to remove those pesky tree stumps.
- The manual, intensive, and painful way. -
Not always effective if the tree roots are long, strong, and deep.
- The toxic way. - (Stump Killer, Root Tree Killer, etc.)
Not something we advise due to ecological issues but definitely something we can advise on
- Using a Stump Grinder -
Our favoured and recommended option for tree stump elimination.
Our team has access to the most current range of Stump Grinding devices, including those small machines able to access confined areas and with restricted access. Using Stump Grinding machines, we can quickly remove the offending stumps allowing your ground to be returned to grass, planting, or re-landscaping. It also eliminates any trip hazards and removes areas that could damage your garden machinery.
It takes a very long time for a tree stump to rot away on its own. In some cases, fresh roots appear, and it starts to sprout growth all over again. More likely, it will become infested with rodents and pests and could potentially be contaminated by a disease, the most common being honey fungus. Removing the stump has many benefits.
Hedge Cutting and Hedge Trimming Required?
There's nothing quite like a garden that has well-maintained and trimmed hedging. It gives beautiful framing to the rest of the garden area.
We offer a breadth of bush cutting and bush trimming services. Our skilled and professional team takes great satisfaction in meeting or surpassing your expectations. We offer competitive pricing, which we ensure we stick to, as we know this helps you plan and keep to your budget.
Should your hedge or hedging be potentially dangerous in that it's blocking traffic sightlines or impinging in areas that it shouldn't, we can certainly advise if removal is the most suitable way forward. If removal is the preferred solution, we can rapidly eliminate the offending area leaving you with a blank canvas you can work on.
Bush Cutting and Bush Trimming Services
We have numerous regular hedge maintenance clientele where the tree/bush is either too high or too long a boundary for them to keep under control. We are pretty confident they have better things to do with their precious time. Our services include trimming, pruning, reshaping, or thinning to make your hedging so much more attractive and appealing.
Conifer Cutting and Conifer Trimming Services
Conifers are fantastic for personal privacy and blocking sound, however you don't want them getting out of control or removing light from your neighbours.
Conifer (coniferous) cutting, trimming, and shaping can make such a difference. Proper maintenance of conifers (and others in the conifer family) means there is more chance to retain their natural colour and beauty while keeping their size under control.
We pride ourselves on being the best local tree surgeons in the area for all types of garden service solutions.
We have clients in all types of environments, from Private House Owners, Landlords, National House Builders and small Commercial Companies.
