Leicester Tree Surgery
It makes sense to use an experienced tree surgeon who works in harmony with the environment and has a high regard for safety and understands your requirements.
Leicester Tree Surgeons are efficient and organised and will take great care of your property to ensure you're satisfied with the work we do. We'll leave your site clean and tidy and make sure that you're happy with everything.
Although we'd usually rather leave trees in place because of their valuable contribution to our environment, there are occasions when it's necessary to remove one or more. When a tree becomes stressed, diseased or reaches the end of it's natural life it may start to die back leaving branches brittle and liable to snap. This can be dangerous so we can advise you on the best course of action - whether that's pruning to remove the dead branches in order to allow the tree to recover, or sometimes complete tree removal.
Removing trees can sometimes be the only option when they're blocking light from your property or perhaps hiding a beautiful view or undermining your buildings. Conifers can often grow much bigger than expected and cause problems within a few years, leaving tree felling as the only option.
We can fell a tree of any size with the minimum of disruption to your garden or land.
It pays to choose trees carefully before planting and consider how big they will grow over the years. Don't plant trees too close to buildings, especially those that will grow large or have intrusive roots like willow that can cause real damage to drains and foundations. If this happens it may be that the only solution is to remove the tree.
Some trees grow very fast, like Leylandii for example, which often cause problems across the country as they outgrow their welcome. These dense trees can block the sun and cast shade across your land and their shallow root balls means they can be unstable as they become very large, so seek professional advice if in doubt.
The tree specialists at Leicester Tree Surgeons can reduce the height or remove Leylandii according to your preference, leaving your garden lighter and more open.
Tree Cutting, Pruning and Trimming
Judicious pruning will be good for your trees and improve their appearance. It may be necessary to remove diseased and dying branches and some trees will benefit from thinning to improve the structure and encourage strong growth. Your local Leicester Tree Surgeons are happy to take care of every type of tree maintenance.
Whilst fruit trees and many smaller trees may be easily pruned by an amateur gardener, precious and large trees should be tackled by a professional tree surgeon. Our operatives are well trained and equipped with the proper safety equipment to look after every type of tree.
Here are three of the most common types of tree pruning:
Whilst an oak tree may live for hundreds of years, the average fruit or ornamental tree may have a lifespan nearer 30-50 years. It's always sad when a loved tree reaches the end of its life, but dying trees can be a real hazard and may need felling before they topple of their own accord.
Disease is another reason for having a tree felled, with some varieties falling victim to honey fungus or one of a myriad of infections when complete tree removal may be the only solution.
Sometimes, of course, a tree is just in the wrong place, damaging property or casting heavy shade or maybe just drawing too much water from the soil, preventing other plants from thriving.
As Leicester tree surgery specialists we are always able to advise and undertake tree felling to meet your requirements. And we'll clear your site or leave logs according to your wishes.
Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs)
Anyone may apply to have a tree preservation order placed by their local planning authority. Consequently trees that are considered to make a valuable contribution to the amenity of the area may be protected by TPOs. Trees in a conservation area may be offered similar protection, so if in doubt it's wise to check before doing any tree work.
It's an offence to fell, lop, top or wilfully damage any protected tree without written permission from the planning authority. You can avoid hassle by seeking permission in advance for remedial tree work and Leicester Tree Surgeons can help.

When you need site clearance for landscaping, development or simply to enhance your garden, we can help with the right equipment for the job.
We can remove undergrowth and old trees to prepare the ground for your project and we can also tackle invasive plants and old hedges that have outgrown their welcome!
Woodland Management and Coppicing
Whether you have a small corner of woodland or a larger plot covered in trees, these need careful management to look their best.
If you're looking for coppicing, replanting, undergrowth clearance or complete planting of new woodland, our experienced arboriculturists can help. Whether your woods require simple maintenance for amenity purposes or are to be used for logging, timber production or for sporting activities, we can help you produce and deliver the ideal plan for your needs.
With so many varieties of hedging plants, you can imagine that there is more than one way to trim a hedge! From mixed country hedges to trimmed box, we can trim and shape to your requirements. We'll help maintain a great appearance and advise on the best time to cut, depending on the type of hedge and to avoid the disturbance of nesting birds.
We can also remove hedges and replant where required. Trust us to leave your property with neat and beautiful boundary hedges.
There are different schools of thought about removing tree stumps and a variety of ways you can deal with them. Some people like to leave stumps to rot naturally if they're in a suitable location, leaving them to the insects and fungi that like to live off them.
If a large tree is removed from a prominent place in the garden, you might like to have an expert sculpt a wonderful feature, or turn it into a bird table or perhaps make it into a bench or garden seat.
But in many cases you're just left with an unattractive stump in an inappropriate situation and would rather not wait years for it to disappear naturally. In those cases we remove stumps or grind them to below ground level. That will allow you to replant in the area or return it to grass.
Site Inspections and Tree Surveys
Regular tree inspections are recommended to maintain the health of your trees and bring to your notice any problems before they become major.
Our qualified tree specialists are able to do tree surveys and conduct site inspections, just call us for further information on 0116 430 0435.
We advise you to have regular checks on your trees to maintain their health and to prevent any unforeseen problems. Damage can be caused to the strongest trees due to high winds and bad weather. Regular maintenance visits by Leicester Tree Surgeons will ensure your trees have the best chance of thriving as we inspect trees for broken and damaged branches, check their health and tidy up where necessary, always giving you expert advice.
In these days of the internet, it's easy to do a Google search to find out how to do just about anything. And looking after your precious trees is no exception. Every tree needs a different sort of care and whilst most are pretty tough and hands-free, some are far more needy and require frequent attention.
Before you plant a tree, do some research to discover whether it will like living in your garden and seek the advice of experts at the nursery or garden centre. It's all too easy to buy a tree for a small garden without realising it will grow to 30 feet within a few years.
When you need professional assistance with maintenance, call on the team at Leicester Tree Surgeons who can help with our expert local tree care services. We want your trees to be healthy and happy in a suitable environment.
When your trees and hedges are looked after by professional tree surgeons, you'll make the most of your garden and trees, protecting your valuable assets. So don't wait until you see problems or want a tree removed before calling on our services.
