All our arborists are NPTC trained, experienced and have a real passion for tree surgery. We genuinely care about preserving and conserving trees, so we always try to balance your requirements with what is best for the environment and the long term health of your tree. 

As professional arborists, we also understand the implications and dangers of poor pruning practices and substandard tree work. This in-depth understanding of arboricultural drives our high standards, and we complete all projects using BS3998:2010 British Standard guidelines for tree work.

Tree surgery is inherently dangerous, so we take every precaution to protect our staff, the public and your property. Besides having £10 public and £10 employer liability insurance, we also adhere to strict health and safety practices, employing the latest tree surgeon tools and equipment. 

You may or may not be aware that specific trees will be protected by TPO's (tree preservation orders) or located within a conservation area. If either of these is the case, you must be sure to apply to the local planning authority before any work commences. Failure to obtain permission can lead to criminal prosecution and hefty fines for both you and the contractor. 

Foremans Tree Specialists Ltd will check all the trees' status at the point of quotation, and provided we are instructed to complete the work can even apply on your behalf. Our staff have extensive knowledge of the application process and an excellent success rate. We are also happy to submit TPO applications as a standalone process if you already have a contractor you wish to use.

Tree Felling and Tree Removal Crawley

Do you have an unwanted, dangerous or dead tree you require felling and removing in Crawley? Foremans Tree Specialists Ltd have the expertise and equipment to fell trees of all shapes and sizes in even the most challenging locations. If space allows, the quickest and safest way to fell a tree is to "straight fell" it as a whole. However, there is rarely room for straight felling in built-up areas, so most trees are climbed and felled in sections. Our experienced arborists use a combination of precision cuts and freefall techniques along with recognised rigging and lowering systems to dismantle the tree safely and efficiently.

Crown Reductions & Tree Pruning Crawley 

The first stage of any tree pruning service should be an in-depth assessment carried out by a qualified tree surgeon. Our NPTC trained arborists will make vital considerations for the trees' size, shape, species, age and health before suggesting any maintenance schedule or tree work. We carry out all our tree pruning operations to the highest standard possible using the "British Standard" guidelines for tree work (BS3998). 

Some of the tree pruning services we offer include:

  • Crown Reduction/s
  • Crown Lifting/Lifts
  • Crown Thinning
  • Crown Cleaning
  • Pollarding (see below)
  • Limb Removal
  • Branch Removal

Tree Pollarding Crawley

Pollarding is a drastic tree pruning procedure that involves removing all the upper branches leaving a bare framework. Pollarding is primarily used to suppress growth and the overall size of a tree, but it may also promote new growth and denser foliage. The act of pollarding is so severe you should only pollard healthy trees of certain age and species. Pollard the wrong tree, and you risk making it unsafe or killing it entirely. The most common species suitable for pollarding include Willow, Ash, Horse Chesnut, London Plane, Sycamore, Maple and Lime. When it comes to the pollarding trees in Crawley, Foremans Tree Specialists Ltd are incredibly well-versed and knowledgable, with numerous satisfied customers throughout the region. 

Tree Stump Removal and Stump Grinding Crawley 

The process of removing a tree stump without the proper training and equipment can not only be extremely challenging but, in some cases, hazardous. Foremans Tree Specialists Ltd have a range of powerful stump grinders to remove stumps of any size in any location. Our insured tree surgeons also have all the necessary training and experience to safely and efficiently operate these potentially hazardous machines, minimising the risk of damage and disruption to your day. Once we've ground out the stump, we use tree stump grindings to backfill the hole making the area safe, tidy and ready for whatever you plan next.
