Here at Green Bear we have over 9 years of experience in all aspects of Tree Surgery and Arboriculture. We place great emphasis on health and safety and carry Public Health Insurance.
We love trees and can help you care for yours by checking and maintaining their health, condition and safety, as well as felling, pruning, shaping and trimming trees and hedges. No job is too big or small, so let us help you, call for a free quotation.
Some trees have a Tree Peservation Order (TPO) on them or are in conservation areas and require prior permission from your local council in order for work to be carried out. We abide by these laws as we understand the importance of protecting our environment.
We are NPTC qualified with a National Award in Forestry and Arboriculture and fully insured, so you can breathe easy knowing that we are covered by a £5,000,000 public liability insurance.
Trees may need to be felled to the ground due to disease, safety or development of the land.
All the debris of the felling can be removed from site, or if preferred, left in logs, or chipped for garden mulch.
Once a tree is felled we are able to take care of the removal of the stump, by grinding it below the surface of the ground.
This is perfect if the client wants to keep their tree long term but if it has become problematic in size, growing too big for its environment, for example overgrowing onto a building or neighbours property.
All necessary branches are carefully and considerably pruned allowing the tree to maintain a natural shape.
This procedure is normally carried out on mature trees where the client is happy with the size and shape, but the density of branches needs to be reduced in order to allow wind to pass through the crown with less resistance, reducing the risk of branch failure.
The overall shape is not altered, but the canopy is just thinned by removing secondary, crossing or rubbing branches.
To increase the space in a limited area it is important to cut the lower branches.
The maintenance or the reduction of hedge height is essential to control its growth. In particular species of trees trimming is important to retain its health and size.
Vines & Climbers
Climbing vines can soon get out of control without regular maintenance, at GreenBear we have plenty of experience reducing and controlling these plants to help keep your gutters and windows clear and safe.
