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 means “a wooded hill”.

From tree removals to tree planting, hedge trimming to stump grinding, Foremans Tree Specialists Ltd’s friendly staff has the skill, tree surgeon equipment, and experience to complete the work quickly and efficiently, working to agreed time constraints and budgets. 

Our arborists have a thorough knowledge of arboriculture owing to their  NPTC  or LANTRA training partnered with years of experience within the industry. All the Foremans Tree Specialists team members also possess a real passion for preservation, conservation, and the environment. We always try to balance your project’s requirements with the trees’ health and surroundings.

As principled tree surgeons, we know the 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. In addition to our £10 employers and £10 public liability insurance, the Foremans Tree Specialists crew also follows stringent health and safety protocols, employing the latest tree surgery equipment and working practices.

We’ve also developed an outstanding local reputation for being trustworthy, friendly and completely transparent. But what’s best is you don’t have to take our word for it; we have a 5-star rating on Rated People and Google My Business

Furthermore, we’re CHASAlcumus SafeContractor and ISO9001 & ISO14001 approved contractors.

You may not be aware that specific trees may be preserved by TPOs (tree preservation orders) located in conservation areas covered by a blanket location-based TPO. If a tree is protected, applying to the local planning authority or council is imperative 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 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 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 fall a tree is to “straight fell” it. 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, and Tree Pollarding (see below)



Tree pollarding is a heavy pruning method involving 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 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 Chestnut. Foremans Tree Specialists have been 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 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 make the area safe, tidy and ready for the next stage of your project.



If you’ve found yourself with a tree emergency, Foremans Tree Specialists Ltd are here to help! From dangerous hanging branches to fallen trees against a building, our insured tree surgeons have the experience, training and equipment to tackle the problem and make the situation safe. Our emergency tree surgeon helpline is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, so you can rest assured, contact us at 01403 333142and we’ll get to you as soon as possible.



If ignored and left to grow, climbers, creepers and ivy can become an expensive and notable obstacle. They can damage your home, including window frames, soffits, render and brickwork, leaving you with a hefty bill of hundreds to thousands of pounds. Foremans Tree Specialists Ltd recommend regular pruning to keep ivy in control, or, if required, we offer total ivy removal in Midhurst, West Sussex and across the South-East. 



Foremans Tree Specialists Ltd’s bespoke planting services provide your trees, plants and hedges with the greatest chance of having a healthy, bright and bountiful future. We can physically plant the trees for you, suggest suitable species for desired locations, help source superior specimens, and give priceless aftercare advice.



It takes many years of practice to acquire masterful hedge-trimming skills, and larger hedges may prove out of reach for even the most accomplished gardeners. However, our well-equipped crew of highly professional hedge trimmers have many years of background in cutting hedges of all species, shapes and sizes. Foremans Tree Specialists Ltd will bestow our thorough understanding of the hedge trimming process and suggest the most fitting solutions for your project requirements. Our tree surgeons and arborists can accurately trim and fashion hedges in any style, from beautiful ornamental topiary to essential hedge height reductions and anything in between.



If you wish to have ANY tree surgery completed on your trees, you must check to see if a TPO protects them or if you’re in a conservation area. If you or someone you employ do any work on protected trees, you could risk substantial fines and criminal prosecution. At Foremans Tree Specialists Ltd, we always verify the status of trees when producing the quotation. If you choose us to perform the work, we can 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.

Oliver Foreman was excellent. He arrived on time every day, was polite and responsive to questions and requests for extra work while on site. He and the men who worked for him cleared away completely before leaving each day. Most importantly, the quality of the tree felling, hedge cutting,  general shrub and stump removal was first class. I cannot recommend Foremans Tree Specialists more highly.

Review from Katherine, GU27

Oliver and his team turned up on time worked hard all day in a small garden taking two 30ft conifers down. Clean tidy and very efficient highly recommend them.

Review from Robin, GU47

Excellent prompt response to my enquiry. Arrived to assess work at the exactly promised time, submitted quote within 24 hours. Work done on mutually agreed date and to our complete satisfaction. Would certainly use Oliver’s services again and can fully recommend them.

Review from Marilyn, GU24

Oliver and his colleague did an outstanding job on the silver birch in my back garden, it now has a good shape to it and now lets a lot more sunlight onto my lawn, which is just what I needed. They also removed the ivy which was slowly choking the tree.

Review from Richard, GU9

Did a fantastic job on my damson tree. Left it with a beautiful round shape and cut back some larger branches in a way that will ensure it will grow back into a lovely shape. Left garden clean and tidy. Nice guys. Will be using again.

Review from Donna, GU14

Super friendly and competent tree surgeon. I Will definitely use him again in future…he even left the garden tidier than when he arrived!

Review from David GU2

We got 3 quotes which were all very similar. We are very pleased with our choice. Most impressed with the work ethic, it was a big job with some very large trees to remove which took 3 days to complete. They were completely undeterred by the torrential rain on the second day, managed to Keep working and the job was finished on time. We will be using them again.

Review from Martin, GU47

Oliver and his team did an excellent job of felling a large leylandii tree from my garden. His price was very competitive, he was quick to answer questions by email, and turned up to do the job promptly. The tree was taken down in sections over two days, all the waste material was removed and the guys did a thorough job of cleaning the site afterwards. Highly recommended.

Review from Robert, TW12, Your Content Goes Here

Really nice guy, would definitely recommend and use again.

Review from Charlie, GU7

Oliver made an excellent job of cutting our tree. He was very knowledgeable and I was very confident he knew what he was doing. I cannot wait to see how the tree responds to this trim in the spring! There were a lot of cuttings to dispose of and he even “hoovered” the lawn afterwards! A very tidy job well priced, and would definitely use him again.

Review from Alison, GU2

Excellent job, very knowledgeable, skilful and helpful. Was prepared to wait for the right season to work, according to the trees we were dealing with. Punctual, tidy & efficient. Would have no hesitation in asking them back for further work and have already recommended to neighbours! Thanks :)

Review from Lesley TW14

All you need, quotes an acceptable price, turns up on time, does a great job and clears up both my garden and my neighbours. Many thanks for a job well done. Will certainly retain your number.
