Tree Removal​

We hate to cut trees down and would always try to preserve a tree and save it, if possible. But sometimes due to the size, condition or the location of a tree, a full removal can be the only option left on the table. We are specialists in the removal of trees and after years of studying, training, qualifications and actually felling thousands of unwanted trees over the years, we have got rather good at it. We have invested thousands of pounds on the latest technology that keeps us at the top of our profession and very efficient at removing these unwanted specimens.

Tree felling

This is our usual method of tree removal. It is a good way as long as there is sufficient open space around to drop the tree in one section, like field or wide open land. Other trees, that are situated near property, out buildings or utility cables need to be addressed differently as they could cause severe damage or loss of life. Dangerous and hazardous trees need to be cut down by sectional dismantling, basically removed piece by piece. This is the best and safest method. Every tree that we remove is always inspected first for all eventualities, the surrounding environment and heath and safety, we take nothing to chance. Our tree surgeons will only start felling the tree once we are satisfied and all our pre-checks have been completed.

Tree Trimming Service

We offer good selection of different maintenance services to take care of the local trees in the area. Whether you want a tree cut right back or just a light trim, pruning, trimming, deadwood removal or to just look more pleasing, then give us a call for a Free quote and site visit.

Maintaining Trees

The regular pruning and trimming of your trees will help and guarantee more light into your garden areas. This can be beneficial for all your other plants and smaller trees to grow correctly and stay strong as they will not be choked by lack of sunlight. Keeping up with this vital maintenance will also help reduce the density of the foliage of your trees allowing for the strong winds and storms to pass through without causing damage. 

Crown thinning

This is to remove and reduce parts of the smaller branches of the outer crown, thus creating a uniform of dense foliage with an even spaced branch structure.

Crown Reduction

This is a method to reduce a trees crown size but still keeping a good shape to the tree. It will take the weight off any heavy branches and can help and remedy the situation if the tree’s foliage is interfering with buildings, structures or utility power cables and line

Crown Cleaning

Cleaning the crown can be a great way to remove old deadwood, branches that may be diseased, or in bad condition.

Crown Lifting

The tree’s crown is lifted be removing the lower branches and limbs, this will change the trees look and structure allowing for more natural light to enter around the ground below. Especially good if the existing plants, shrubs grass or bushes were being starved of this light source previously.

Deadwood Removal

This service can be a good way of insuring against the issue from falling deadwood branches that could become detached through winds, disease or old age. Residential and commercial clients alike choose to use this service and have tree deadwood removed in high-risk areas that have a high footfall of people or fear of a falling branch could do serious damage to an expensive structure or building. This process involves climbing throughout the tree to locate dead or degrading branches and limbs and removing them before any danger happens.


To pollard is an ancient method used to cut a tree right back and control the size and shape. All the main branches are removed to just before the top of the trunk. This can be the desired method for many reasons including aesthetics, keeping trees in a juvenile state so they don’t get out of hand in the environment that they have been placed. Many local councils and government bodies use pollarding to stop trees in parks, by roadsides and public property to drastically reduce their growth and causing interference problems with power lines and encroaching over roads and buildings. Pollarding can only be used as a heavy pruning method for certain trees like willow, sycamore, elm, ash, oak, maple, yew, redbud, tulip tree.

Stump Removal/ Stump Grinding

We offer professional stump removal and stump grinding service around Stirling and all around the local areas.
This method is the safest and most reliable method of removing unwanted stumps, Once the ground has been cleared around the stump we will cut it down to an acceptable level ready for the grinding process to begin. The appropriate screening will be placed around the stump to prevent flying debris, this is necessary for health and safety and stops any stones from striking windows that may be close by. Our top of the range grinding machine with rotating tungsten blade cuts through the stump with ease turning the wood into sawdust and pulp. We can grind a stump up to 18″ inches below the surface and removing it leaving a hole which can then be back-filled with a mixture of topsoil and the leftover sawdust chipping’s, the residue from the grinding. What we do need from you is sufficient access for our machine to pass through to where the stump is situated, the gap needs to be at least 1 metre wide for this to happen.

Why remove a tree stump?

Stumps are not aesthetically pleasing by any means and can be a hazard as they are easy to overlook and trip over causing physical damage to yourself or a family member. 
Leaving a stump for a substantial length of time can sometimes cause regrowth and new sprouts can appear. These unwanted shoots can start growing into small trees around the stump and suck the nutrients from the adjacent plants in nearby areas. 
The leftover stumps while they are in a state of decay can harbour all sorts of unwanted insects, including termites, beetles, ants and other wood burrowing pests. These pests can spread to other parts of your garden and also your home.

It may cost a little to have your unwanted stumped removed and ground down, but I assure you that it will be worth the expense.
