Expert arboricultural advice


Unsure whether your tree needs attention?

Is my tree sick or dying? Can it be saved? Does it need pruning? Is it dangerous? Does it need to be removed? …These are some of the many questions that people can have, and of course we haven’t all been trained to know how to answer them. This lack of training can sometimes include a ‘tree lopper’ - who earns a living cutting down trees. Be careful when taking advice from someone who's livelihood depends on cutting a tree. Pruning or removal is not always necessary or the best option.
