What do tree surgeon services include?

Tree surgeon services include pruning, removing tree limbs or stumps, and cutting down trees. These specialists handle the dirty work and dangerous tasks related to tree removal. Often, tree surgeon services involve using hazardous equipment and climbing at great heights.

A tree surgeon may remove unsafe, diseased or dead trees. In other situations, a tree surgeon may prune a tree to control its growth and shape. Tree surgeon services keep your premises safe and your landscape looking beautiful. 

Tree felling

Felling involves cutting down a tree that is diseased, dead, or unsafe. When a tree is sick, a tree surgeon may have to remove it altogether to prevent the disease from spreading to surrounding trees. A tree surgeon may also fell a tree in a weak condition to ensure safety. For extra peace of mind, you can hire an arborist to work alongside your tree surgeon. Arborists are specially trained to diagnose trees and recommend safe solutions.

Tree cutting, pruning & lopping

Cutting, pruning, or lopping stimulates or controls growth in trees. Tree pruning is the process of removing diseased or dead wood. What’s more, tree pruning stimulates the growth of fruit and flower buds.

Meanwhile, tree lopping is an effective way to modify the shape of a tree. The method involves cutting branches and training them to grow in a specific direction. A tree surgeon may also do crown thinning on a tree. This consists of removing select branches to increase light penetration and reduce crown weight. 

Tree service & maintenance

Tree maintenance tasks include pruning, using mulch, and trimming. A tree surgeon may also perform preventative treatments for insects and diseases. Tree services & maintenance can keep a tree looking healthy and beautiful. To complement your tree services, book lawn care and garden maintenance for the upkeep of your outdoor space. 

Stump removal

Tree surgeons can grind down and remove unsightly or bulky stumps. The process may require a specialised stump grinding machine. With this machine, both the stump and root system can be completely destroyed. 

When the job is done, some tree surgeons may also clear out the debris from your garden or yard. If you have other clutter lying around, you can book a clearance service on our platform. Once the task is done, you can get on with your building or replanting plans. Or enjoy your newly cleared outdoor space.

Tree pollarding

Pollarding a tree involves removing all branches and most of the limbs of a tree, leaving only the trunk. Through pollarding, the tree eventually produces dense branches and foliage. For aesthetic purposes, pollarding can grow unique-looking “lollipop trees.” 

What’s more, pollarding keeps a tree from outgrowing its bounds on a private landscape or encroaching on electrical wires. The method also keeps trees compact on city streets, parks, or small spaces. Once you pollard a tree, you’ll have to repeat the process every year or two throughout the tree’s life. This means you may need constant landscaping and garden maintenance.

Remove/prune tree branches (possible tree removal)


Tempe NSW, Australia

We have a tree that is in close proximity to the house that we would like trimmed/branches removed for 2 reasons. Firstly, the leaves are clogging up our gutters. Secondly, as you can see the tree has grown up through electricity lines. Ideally we would like to remove the tree, however it is just over 3 metres from the house and we are in a heritage conservation street. So a quote for removal (if possible) would be great too. - Due date: Flexible
