Green Wood Tree Surgery is your local tree care company that is passionate about trees, their environment and the work we do with them. We cover a wide area, if you live in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire or Essex. We’ll come out and see you.
We endeavour to provide advice in a courteous and professional manner based on our knowledge and experience. Many of our customers are repeat customers, some of whom have been with us since the beginning. Much of our work comes from recommendation which is also testament to our level of service.
We hold Public Liability Insurance to the value of £10 million, and all our Tree Surgeons are NPTC-qualified. We provide continuous training to all staff to maintain and further develop their knowledge.
We offer quality advice and services. Our services include:
Crown thinning does not change the overall shape or size of the tree it is the removal of smaller branches usually within the outer crown, this is done to produce an even density of foliage and even spacing between branches. This type of tree surgery is normally carried out to allow more light to pass through the canopy or even to reduce weight and wind resistance.
Crown lifting is the removal of the lowest branches normally requested to improve access under the tree e.g. mowing the grass or increasing the light under the tree.
Crown Reduction is the removal of the outer most branches of the crown making the whole tree smaller.
When a tree has out grown its situation or has become dangerous then removal may be required. We specialise in carefully dismantling trees in confined spaces where care and consideration is paramount. So whether it’s a conservatory or green house, a phone wire or just not enough space to fell the tree we have all the necessary equipment, experience and expertise to work safely around or over any obstacle.
A heavy reduction, removing branches larger than a normal reduction. This is used to control a tree that would become far too big for its environment this process produces an abundance of new growth that will need to be removed on a routine basis. A pollarded weeping willow may have to be re-pollarded every three to five years. This procedure is not suitable for all species, species that respond best to pollarding are Willows, Limes and some other broad leaf species.
The removal of dead or dying branches is beneficial for the health of the tree. This is normally done for safety reasons especially within public areas or close to public highways.
Formative pruning is usually undertaken on younger trees and is used to produce a good shape and a healthier crown in the long term.
Bracing is used to minimise the risk carried by weak forks and or heavy limbs, we use a modern non-invasive method in line with current recommendations.
Whether it’s a tree that has beautiful spring flowers or stunning autumnal colour you want or a hedge with berries and fruit for the wildlife, we can advise, supply and plant any length of hedge and anything from single specimen trees to a small woodlands.
Tree Stump Removal
Tree stumps can be unsightly, get in the way or encourage harmful fungi. They are, by design often very difficult to dig out. We always look to minimise disruption to the surrounding ground. So instead of digging large holes, we grind out the stump, leaving you with a smooth, neat extraction, allowing you to grass over, re-plant or begin construction.
If you own land with trees growing on it you have a legal responsibility, A Duty of Care to ensure your trees do not injure or damage any third parties or property. Problems with trees can sometimes be hard to spot, GWTS works closely with an arboreal consultant with over 30 years’ experience to produce surveys that not only spot potential hazards but can also be used to plan work.
