Tree Removal

There are many occasions when a tree needs to be removed whether it is for safety or to create space. We can safely remove any tree regardless of it's size, condition or location.

With years worth of experience, you can rely on us to remove any tree safely and confidently.

Before starting the process, our team ensure to carry out thorough risk assessments to certify the safety of our customers, ourselves and the surrounding area.

Crown Reduction

This entails reducing the size of the tree by removing branches back to suitable growth points whilst at the same time, keeping a natural shape to the canopy. Reducing the crown alleviates stress and can allow retention of a tree within a confined space.

Once a tree has been reducing and reshaped, it will be left with a strong framework of healthy branches and twigs.

Crown Thinning

This involves the removal of secondary branches from within the crown to reduce it's density leaving a balanced tree with even growth throughout.

We use a systematic approach to remove branches throughout the tree to ensure a balanced result.

Crown Lifting

This is where we remove the soft growth and lower branches to increase the vertical clearance beneath the canopy. There are various solutions for crown lifting with some extensive lifting phased over a number of years.

The result of crown lifting may leave a tree with more than one level to accommodate for different clearance requirements.

Stump Grinding

If you have a tree stump that needs to be removed and access is a problem then please call (Active Tree Care Ltd) the tree and stump grinding specialists and we will try our best to assist you. We go the extra mile to ensure your garden is left neat and tidy when we've finished.

Site Clearance / Skanska

We provide a service to developers to clear a site of all unwanted trees and other vegetation. Stumps can either be removed or poisoned. We will initially take the time to survey and assess the site and generate an action plan involving the most environmentally friendly and effective methods.

We are licensed and insured to dispose of all waste cleared appropriately and safely.


Our customers can benefit from our wealth of experience and knowledge alongside a quick response for site reports, assistance and guidance. We provide friendly and professional advice for both commercial and domestic customers. From tree safety assessment, planning applications and subsidence risk evaluations, our team of arboricultural experts are here to help.

All trees which could potentially be affected by a development (including those off-site) should be assessed by an arboricultural consultant in accordance with British Standard BS5837. This assessment will consider tree condition, dimensions, likely retention span (years), and future growth potential, and will inform design in relation to how close you can build to trees. If the tree is to be retained, constraints to be considered are those below ground and above ground.
