Midhurst is a market town situated in West Sussex, England. It rests on the River Rother 32 kilometres (20 miles) from the English Channel and 19 kilometres (12 miles) north of Chichester. The name Midhurst means "Middle wooded hill" or "place amongst the wooded hills", which makes perfect sense as you will find it right in the centre of the South Downs National Park. Midhurst derives its name from two Old English words, Midd/mid, which means "in the middle", and Hyrst, which meant "a wooded hill".

As principled tree surgeons, we are well aware of the associated risks of substandard pruning practices and inferior tree surgery. With that in mind, we encourage our staff to work to the highest standard and carry out all duties using BS3998:2010 British Standard guidelines for tree work.
Tree surgery operations are inherently dangerous, so we place every precaution to safeguard our staff, the public, and their property.

You may not be aware that specific trees may be preserved by TPO's (tree preservation orders), located in conservation areas, covered by a blanket location-based TPO. If a tree is protected, it's imperative to apply to the local planning authority or council before any work commences. If you fail to obtain permission, you and the contractor may encounter hefty fines and criminal prosecution. There have been recent changes to the law, so the fine amount is unlimited, meaning you should think very carefully before commencing any unapproved tree work.
At Foremans Tree Specialists Ltd, we check all trees' status at the quotation stage, and if you instruct us to carry out the work, we can even make the application for you. Our staff are very familiar with the application process and have an impressive track record of getting applications approved. Please note: If you wish to use another contractor, we can also submit TPO applications as a chargeable standalone service.

Do you want tree felling and or tree removal in Midhurst? Foremans Tree Specialists Ltd's crew has the expertise, training and equipment to fell trees of every size, shape and condition in the most challenging locations. The swiftest and safest way to fell a tree is to "straight fell" it as a whole. That said, there is scarcely space for straight felling in developed areas, so most trees will require climbing and dismantling in segments. Our skilled arborists will combine precision cuts with freefall techniques and recognised lowering systems to efficiently and safely dismantle the tree.
The initial stage of any tree pruning project should entail an in-depth evaluation conducted by a qualified arborist or tree surgeon. Our NPTC or LANTRA certified arborists would make essential considerations for the trees' species, size, shape, age, and condition before suggesting any tree work or maintenance program. We perform every tree pruning duty to the highest standard using the British Standard guidelines for tree work (BS3998).
Tree pruning services we offer include: Crown Reduction/s, Crown Thinning, Crown Cleaning/Cleansing, Crown Lifting/Lifts, Individual Branch Reductions, Individual Branch Removal, Tree Pollarding (see below)
Tree pollarding is a heavy method of pruning that involves removing all the upper branches, leaving the basic framework. Pollarding is generally used to inhibit growth and decrease the size of a tree. It may also promote denser foliage and new growth. Please note that pollarding is so severe that only certain tree species in good health should be pollarded. If you pollard the wrong species, or if the tree is unhealthy, you risk killing it or making it unsafe. The most suitable tree species for pollarding are Ash, Sycamore, Willow, London Plane, Lime, Maple and Horse Chesnut. Foremans Tree Specialists have pollarding trees in Midhurst for many years and have the arboricultural knowledge required to advise if pollarding is suitable for your tree.
Removing a tree stump without the correct tools and training is not only very challenging but could also be very hazardous. We have several powerful stump grinders to remove tree stumps of all sizes in the most challenging locations. Foremans Tree Specialists Ltd's stump grinding operators have all undergone the requisite training to use tree stump grinders both safely and efficiently, which will minimise the danger of damage or injury and interruption to your day. Once we have ground the stump out, we use the stump grindings to refill the hole, to making the area safe, tidy and ready for the next stage of your project.

At Foremans Tree Specialists Ltd, we always verify the status of trees when producing the quotation, and provided you choose us to perform the work, we can even submit the required paperwork on your behalf. Our staff have an admirable track record of getting suitable tree work approved, helping to fast-track the application process.
