Conifers can be problematic. If left unchecked, they could engulf entire properties and block out the light of the sun. They are also dangerous to humans if their growth is uncontrolled, because falling conifer branches pose a significantly higher risk than those shed by deciduous trees. For this reason, it’s important that you hire professionals like us to provide conifer reduction services in your area.

Conifer hedge removal​

If you are thinking of removing a conifer hedge, you will also need to check with your local council. In most cases, you will need planning permission to remove a conifer hedge, even if it is less than 5 metres high. There may be other restrictions on removing conifer hedges, such as a minimum distance that they must be kept from neighbouring properties. Again, it is always best to check with your local council before starting any work on a conifer hedge near your home.

Conifer turning brown

Conifers turning brown are usually caused by too much sunlight or not enough water; both issues can be solved easily without having to remove the tree completely. To give your conifer more sunlight, try trimming some of the branches that are blocking the light. If it’s not getting enough water, then make sure to water it regularly.

How to trim a conifer

If you need to trim a conifer tree, make sure you use the right tools and techniques. You will need a ladder, secateurs, loppers and optionally a chainsaw. Start by cutting off the lower branches with the secateurs, then move on to the loppers for the bigger branches. Finally, use the chainsaw to cut off any remaining branches. Be careful when using the chainsaw – always wear protective clothing and make sure nobody is standing underneath the tree. If you don’t have the right tools or feel comfortable trimming your conifers yourself, then please contact us at Glasgow Trees and we will arrange a free consultation and free quotation for the work.

Cost of conifer removal

There are a lot of variables on how much to cut down a conifer tree. In the UK, the cost of conifer removal can vary depending on the size and location of the tree. The average cost of removing a medium-sized conifer is around £450, while the cost of removing a large conifer can be as much as £1,000.

There are a few reasons for this high cost. The first reason is that the trees tend to be located in more built-up areas, where the space for removal is limited and access is difficult. Secondly, conifers are often planted close together, making them hard to take down without damaging neighbouring trees. Finally, many conifers are located near power lines or other infrastructure, which increases the cost of removal.

There are a few factors that can affect the price of conifer removal. The first is the accessibility of the tree. If the tree is situated in a difficult-to-access location, such as in a tight corner or up a steep hill, this will add to the cost of removal.

The height and weight of the tree can also affect the price. A tall or heavy tree will require manpower and equipment to remove, which will increase the cost.

Commercial conifer removal

The distance from the nearest road also affects the price, as this will determine how mobile the machinery used can be. For example, if a tree is situated deep in a wooded area and far from a road, it may have to be removed using hand tools or even lifted out by helicopter. This would significantly increase the cost of removal. However, if a path has already been made through the woods down to where the tree is situated, then removing it via machines such as excavators becomes an option and allows for more competitive pricing. Give us a call and we can give you a firm price on how much to cut down a conifer tree or multiple conifer trees on your land.

Law on Conifer Tree Height

In the UK, there is no law specifying a maximum height for conifer trees planted in residential gardens. However, local councils may have their own restrictions in place, so it’s best to check with your local authority before planting a conifer tree.

Generally, conifer trees are considered safe to grow up to 2 metres high, but they can grow taller than this depending on the species. If you’re concerned that your conifer tree might exceed the maximum height allowed by your council, you can ask a qualified arborist like Glasgow trees to prune it back.

It’s important to remember that when growing a conifer tree in a residential garden, you need to leave enough space for it to reach its full height and spread.  If you plant a tree too close to your house or another structure, it could cause damage in the event of high winds. It’s also important to consider the height of any overhead cables or telephone lines before planting a conifer tree.

How high can a neighbour’s conifers be?

If you want to keep your hedge below 2m tall, it’s important that the Leylandii trees are not taller than this height. If they’re still a nuisance and have been reported by neighbours as such-the council will ultimately decide what is an acceptable size limit for these plants in residential areas.

Conifer Problems in the UK

Conifers are trees that produce cones instead of flowers. They are often used in forestry because they grow quickly and have strong wood, which makes them ideal for use in construction or as pulpwood for paper manufacture. However, they can also be invasive and cause problems when they are planted in areas  where they are not native.

One such problem is that conifers can take over an area, shading out other plants and trees. They can also form a thick canopy that prevents light from reaching the ground, which can stop new trees from growing. This can be a particular problem in areas where biodiversity is important, such as nature reserves or woodland parks.

In these cases, it may be necessary to remove the conifers and replace them with native trees. This is a time-consuming and expensive process, and it can take several years for the new trees to become established.

The study was commissioned by the UK Forestry Standard. This has set out guidelines for sustainable forestry management in Britain. They say that conifers should only be used as a replacement for native trees if they were originally part of an established forest before they were cleared to make way for something else – such as agriculture or housing development.

However, this is not always possible, and some landowners may use conifers to landscape their property. This can be very costly because conifer plantations tend to be more densely planted than native forests. They also require regular maintenance so that individual trees don’t grow too high and damage power lines or block out light under them. A lack of light can stop other plants from  growing, making it impossible for saplings to take root.

The cost of removing trees is difficult to estimate since it can vary greatly depending on the species being removed and where they are located.

Do conifers grow back when cut down?

The short answer is no – they don’t grow back once they’ve been cut down. This is because, unlike deciduous trees, coniferous trees do not produce seeds that germinate to form new trees. Instead, conifers reproduce through cones that grow on the tree. The seeds inside the cones are dispersed by the wind and animals, and new trees grow from these seeds. When a conifer is cut down, its roots remain in the ground and die. Over time, these roots decompose and release nutrients back into the soil which can help support the growth of new trees. However, it typically takes many years for a conifer to grow back to its original size after being cut down.
