Tree Surgery Services on Offer in Bishopbriggs

Trees are critical to the eco-balance of the planet. They consume carbon dioxide, the waste gas we give off when we breath.

But they need our help from time to time, as trees can grow in awkward places, their root systems can cause damage to property and they can become diseased and unsafe too.

Thankfully, these kinds of problems are rare in trees that have pride of place in your garden but, if you feel your trees are in need of care and attention, we offer a range of tree surgery services including;

1. Removing Trees

Sad to say, there ae times when a tree or trees need to be removed. This could be because they are way past their prime, no longer offering shade and protection, but are unsafe or causing structurally problems to building.

We can remove trees in two ways. We can…

  • Dismantle them – this is the modern method of removing a tree. It is considered the safest option because it means dismantling the tree bit by bit. We start at the top, taken down large branches and then taking off parts of the trunk in chunks.
  • Felling – this method works well when there are no properties, cars or people that could be damaged by a falling tree. This is the quickest method but even with the best plan to felt he tree and for it to fall in a certain direction, once the hefty trunk starts to fall, the results can be disastrous if it falls in the wrong direction…

2. Crown Reduction

Carried out on a regular basis, crown reduction encourages the tree to grow with a natural shape to it. Left to its own devices, some species of tree can become too straggly and lean, causing a top-heavy approach placing pressure on the roots. It needs to be reduced at the crown but not ‘lopped’.

3. Pruning

Trees and shrubs benefit from pruning, the skill of cutting back the tree in parts so that it grows well in the space it has. It also gives the tree a much-needed health boost.

4. Trimming Hedges

The hedge at your property shields it and your garden, giving you the much-needed privacy you crave to enjoy your garden without the feeling of being ‘watched’.

But, hedges need an annual trimming or they will protrude onto pathways and roads, causing a nuisance and can become to straggly, spoiling their appearance.

5. Emergency Tree Surgery Services

It is usually heavy winds and gales that cause trees problems more often and not. Hanging branches, as well as felled trees need to be dealt with promptly and that is why dealing with storm damage is one of the tree surgery services we offer in Bishopbriggs.
