Aged Tree Management

In our old age we all need a little help! Thanks to both invasive and non-invasive systems we can often prolong the life of the tree for future generations to enjoy. If you have concerns or would just like an expert view, then please do not hesitate to contact us. 

Branch Removal

The removal of branches can be necessary for a number of reasons, most typically, branches which have been damaged as a result of external forces such as wind, or being hit in some way.

In other instances, removing branches may stop the spread of disease. If you are unsure whether or not a tree requires branches removing for this reason, please feel free to contact us and we’ll happily address your concerns and see what, if any, work may be required. 

Consultancy And Advice

Our team understands that just as almost every job is different, our customers’ requirements can also differ. Indeed, sometimes it isn’t always clear what may be required.

Therefore, we are always pleased to carry out inspections and are happy to offer straightforward, friendly advice on the most suitable course of action to take, whilst we also take care of the paperwork; from any necessary risk management reports through to tree preservation order applications, we are here to help.

Feel free to contact us by phone or email for impartial advice, or a free consultation so that we can offer professional guidance. Alternatively, contact us via Twitter @cgslimited for a fast, free and friendly response.

Crown Lift

Similar to the process undertaken for Crown Reductions, Crown lifts involve processes which primarily focus on removing the lower limbs of a tree.

This process is used predominantly on lanes, road and highways in order that traffic may pass by safely, preventing damage to either the trees, vehicles or pedestrians. 

Crown Reductions

In certain circumstances, for safety, practicality or simply aesthetics, it may be necessary to reduce the overall height or ‘spread’ of a tree. For example, the wellbeing of a tree can occasionally be adversely affected by its limb weight (thick, heavy branches).  Shorting such branches at suitable points, whilst seeking to maintain the overall shape of a tree can significantly reduce such effects.

Sometimes it isn’t always clear what may be required. Feel free to contact us by phone or email for impartial advice, or a free consultation, so that we can offer professional guidance. Alternatively, contact us via Twitter @cgslimited for a fast, free and friendly response.


Effectively a form of pruning, this method is used to keep control of the size of trees. This work can effectively control the canopy of mature trees as part of an overall tree management plan. 

Stump Removal

A far more laborious, time consuming and arduous task than many anticipate.  Removing a stump can be made immeasurably more efficient by using one of our many pieces of specialist equipment. The use of a stump-grinding machine, does exactly what it says: it grinds out a tree stump in order to expedite access, egress and removal off-site. 

Tree Felling And Dismantling

At times we recognise that nature can be incompatible with the modern, urban environment in which many of us now live. Despite the best intentions, and often commendable efforts, sadly, there is no alternative other than to remove trees in certain circumstances.

For example, situations in which there may be a high degree of risk to the general public, or to property; or others in which it is necessary to remove diseased or dead trees which pose a hazard.

When, and if this is case, we are strongly committed to felling trees safely and in areas of restricted size will carry out systematic, sectional felling in order to reduce risk and damage to either life or the environment.

Tree Planting

This is an area of grounds maintenance in which we specialise, in large part due to the enthusiasm, expertise and interest which runs throughout our dedicated team of arboriculturists.
