Professional Tree Surgery Operations
All tree surgery work we carry out complies with industry best practice and the British Standard BS3998 Tree work – Recommendations (unless there is a valid arboricultural reason otherwise). Our team of arborists is fully qualified to NPTC standard and is experienced in carrying out a wide range of tree surgery operations.

|If a tree is dangerous, diseased, dead or dying, we can remove it either by felling it at ground level if there is enough space for the tree to fall in its entirety or by dismantling it in sections, a process known as sectional dismantling whereby branches are carefully and accurately lowered to the ground on ropes to be cut up into smaller pieces before being removed from site.
As the name suggests, crown reduction results in a tree with a more consolidated crown, which is achieved by cutting back selected side branches. It is used to reduce the overall size of a tree’s crown; lessen the end-weight of dangerous limbs to reduce the likelihood of failure; balance misshapen trees; reduce the conflict between trees and property and prevent branches interfering with power and telephone lines. Another benefit it lets more light in to your space.
Crown raising involves removing the lower branches of a tree to provide greater clearance between the ground and the spring of crown of the tree. It is used to improve views and light into a garden or home; prevent branches obstructing traffic on the public highway or pedestrians on a footpath and to prevent damage to buildings by tree branches.
Usually carried out on deciduous trees, crown thinning is the selective removal of small internal secondary branches while retaining the tree’s natural shape with the aim of increasing light penetration, reducing the weight of the crown and allowing more air movement through the tree to reduce the likelihood of storm damage.
Pollarding is a pruning system in which the upper branches of your tree are removed in order to promote a dense head of foliage and branches. It helps maintain trees at a predetermined height. This is also a cost effective way of retaining the tree and not having to reduce it as regularly as crown reduction. Removing branches also takes a lot of weight and windsail out of the canopy making the tree less likely to blow over or loose limbs, making it much safer and prolongs the lifetime of the tree.
Deadwood is valuable wildlife habitat but sometimes it can be an unacceptable hazard where there is a risk of it falling from the tree onto roads, footpaths and public places and causing injury to people or damaging buildings. During a deadwooding operation, we will climb throughout the entire canopy of the tree carefully removing the dangerous dead branches.
|You may want to remove a stump in order to make way for a new project or just to improve the overall look to your garden/space. Using professional high-spec arborist equipment we can quickly and easily remove stumps, roots and treat to ensure you don’t get regrowth once the job is done.
|At Stockley Park Tree Services, we offer domestic and agricultural hedge cutting services, trimming the side faces and top of the hedge with either a hand-held hedgecutter or agricultural flail as required. For overgrown hedges, we can undertake hedge reduction, reducing either the height of the hedge, the width or both, or hedge renovation, removing unwanted species and supplementary planting in gaps.
|Hedgelaying involves partially cutting through the stems of the hedgerow trees, laying them down and weaving them together to produce a thick and bushy hedgerow providing valuable wildlife habitat and a stockproof barrier (although it is advisable to back-fence the hedge).
Hedgelaying is the only hedgerow maintenance method currently available that promotes regrowth from ground level and will ensure the health and longevity of the hedgerow. Once the hedge has been layed, regular trimming will keep it in order for up to 50 years when it may be appropriate to lay it again.
If you are a landowner with a hedge to be laid, you may be eligible for a grant through the Countryside Stewardship Scheme.
We are a member of National Hedgelaying Society and carry out the Derbyshire style of hedgelaying.
COMMERCIAL TREE WORK
|We perform commercial tree site clearances, working on land for new homes, golf courses, local councils, schools, garden centres, utility companies etc. A complete risk assessment and an appropriate site specific method statement in accordance with industry regulations is taken out before we commence any work. All aspects of our work conform to BS3998 (British Standard 3998 recommendations for tree work) and work is carried out in a safe and professional manner adhering to health and safety regulations.
FARM, FORESTRY AND ESTATE MANAGEMENT
|Stockley Park Tree Services offer services to woodland owners to maximise their earning and wildlife habitat potential. We undertake woodland thinning which is suitable for younger woodlands to give trees space and maximise their growth rates. It also allows more light in to the woodland floor, which increases the diversity of plants on our woodlands and encourages more wildlife.
Scientists have found thinning early in forest growth creates tougher trees that can endure climate change, what’s more, these thinned forests can suck carbon out of the air just as fast as dense forests. If trees are too crowded, they compete for light and water – and stressed trees are more susceptible to drought and insect attacks.
EMERGENCY TREE WORK
|At Stockley Park Tree Services offer services we are always on call 24/7 to deal with emergency tree work. We have the specialist equipment, knowledge and skills to deal with dangerous trees safely and efficiently.
ROADSIDE TREE WORK
|At Stockley Park Tree Services we undertake roadside tree works for landowners/estates, commercial and residential premises. Tree owners have a duty of care to ensure that trees are not a risk to road users and may be liable if they fall on a road.
|We work closely with a professional tree inspector who can undertake tree surveys and reports to check the helth of the trees and recommend any work to be carried out. This helps to minimise hazards and the risk to property and individuals, as well as benefiting the health of the tree.
Professional, polite and did a great job. Cut the apple tree perfectly. Removed all the mess along with the apples and left the garden and drive spotless. Highly recommended. Thank you to Henry and his co-worker.
