Tree Surgeon in North London – LG trees

Welcome to LG trees. Established in 2007, we are a personal, professional, fully qualified and fully insured team of tree surgeons. We are based in Hackney, and cover north, east, and central London. Our skills, experience and qualifications enable us to deliver a competitively priced solution to suit a customer’s needs.

After having evaluated the work, Luke Geddes will then email you a free, no obligation quote. If you accept that quote, he will lead the team that carries out the work. If climbing is involved, as it usually is, we will do so with rope and harness to complete the work safely, on time, and to budget.

We respect trees and take pride in leaving an attractive, healthy specimen with as natural a shape as possible, a tidy site having cleared all our cuttings, and a happy customer. Read testimonials from some of them here and on Google.

You can view a full list of our tree surgery services here.

If you need a Professional Tree Inspection with a written report and recommendations backed by professional indemnity insurance, we can recommend someone. This can be good for peace of mind if the risk posed by trees is a concern.

We do not supply wood chip, mulch, logs, or any other tree based material. It all goes from the jobs, onto the van, to a big compost/biomass/log business in Enfield.

Tree surgery qualifications

We have all the relevant City & Guilds qualifications or equivalent. These range from chainsaw maintenance to use of a chainsaw from a rope and harness and sectional felling operations. Luke is also an ISA Certified Arborist®. Our work complies with the British Standard’s recommendations. And we have had £5 million public liability and £10 million employers’ insurance since 2010, without the need for a single claim.

An environmentally-friendly approach

LG trees cares for the environment. We advise against removing healthy trees whenever possible and recommend replanting when removal is necessary. We recycle all our cuttings responsibly.

You may find our work surprisingly quiet. Using hand saws and secateurs facilitates our sensitive approach to tree work.

Most of our chainsaws and hedge trimmers are battery powered. They make considerably less noise than their petrol equivalents. They have also reduced our reliance on fossil fuels.

We make a monthly donation to The Woodland Trust.

Competitively priced tree surgery services

Our company is small enough that we are VAT exempt. So there is no additional 20% on the quoted amount when it comes time to pay the bill. And time and again our customers confirm that our work provides excellent value for money.

Luke and his team did a great job on a very large tree in my small garden. They sorted all the necessary permits and on... the day were punctual, friendly and surprisingly quiet. Access to the garden is only through the flat, so there was a lot of branches which had to be carried through to the street, which was all done with minimal mess and no damage to any of our walls. In fact, both garden and flat were tidier after they left than when they arrived!read more

I had a very tall eucalyptus tree fall in my garden. Luke and his colleague came along and expertly removed it. They... were professional, friendly and did a great job cleaning up the hallway that they carried the wood through, to the street. The communication from start to finish was clear, which always helps! Good value too. I thoroughly recommend more

Luke has done multiple jobs for us in front and back garden in Dalston involving tree reduction, wisteria and a vicious... kiftsgate rose. He was punctual, professional and did a superb job - all the plants look great and are thriving. He takes real care with wildlife and cleans up immaculately. Highly more

Outstanding service: friendly, tidy, very professional, and all communications were prompt and helpful. I was under... time pressure to have the job done quickly and they got it done faster than any other business was able to offer. I would strongly recommend more
