Tree surgery London

When we receive your enquiry, Certified Arborist Luke Geddes will contact you to arrange a visit to discuss your needs and evaluate the job. After the visit, he will then send you a quote by email that describes the proposed works and states the cost. If the site is close enough to us in N16, the quote is free and with no obligation. Most of our work is within about five miles.

If you accept the quote, Luke will lead the team on site that carries out the work. As well as ensuring a result that meets both your needs and that of the tree, the team will make every effort to protect your property. This means moving out of harms way anything that can be easily moved, and protecting and avoiding whatever can not. If the only way to remove the cuttings arising from the work is through your house, this includes putting dust sheets down to avoid damaging the floors. Before we leave, we will clear up and put everything back how it was before we started.

Please see below for an outline of our tree surgery services for London. Please note we do not currently carry out tree surveys or produce tree reports, nor do we supply wood chip or logs.

Planting trees

We are happy to advise on suitable species and to carry out this essential work. Successful planting comes down to using high quality trees and good planting procedures, and planting the right tree in the right place. See our Planting trees page for more details.

Tree pruning

Our pruning will maintain or improve the health, appearance and safety of your trees. For example, a tree’s canopy can be reduced or thinned out sensitively to leave a natural shape while increasing light penetration and reducing wind resistance. See our Tree pruning page for more details.

Tree removal and stump grinding

Sometimes trees must be removed. For example, a dead or dying tree might pose a danger, or perhaps a tree is just too big for its location and needs to be replaced by a more suitable specimen. See our Tree removal page for more details.

Applications for planning permission

If you accept our quote and your trees are within a conservation area and/or protected by Tree Preservation Orders then we will apply for planning permission on your behalf. We only ask for a modest deposit from you as submitting the application does take some time. The deposit amount will be deducted from the eventual invoice for the job itself, or refunded to you in the unlikely event that the council does not give permission.

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
