Choosing the Right Tree Surgery Service


Here at Surrey & Sussex Tree Surgery, we strive for 100% customer satisfaction on every project. To achieve this goal, we ensure our clients in Cranleigh or the surrounding locations of Esher, Guildford, Petworth and Ashtead receive the appropriate tree surgery work from the beginning.


Below, we have outlined what each service we undertake as tree surgeons consists of.


Crown Lifting – When undertaking this form of tree surgery, our personnel remove the lowermost branches of a tree’s crown. The removal of these branches helps to increase the amount of sunlight reaching the immediate areas around a tree as well as improving access in the vicinity. We carry out crown lifting to a specified height above ground level, ensuring not to remove large branches growing directly out of the trunk.


Crown Thinning – For this type of tree surgery, we usually target tertiary branches in the outer crown of trees in Cranleigh and the neighbouring areas. By removing branches in this area, we create a uniform density of foliage across the entire branch structure without altering the overall shape or size of a tree. This process reduces both weight and wind resistance while increasing the amount of light that can pass through the crown.


Crown Reduction – The third type of crown work we conduct in Cranleigh and the wider Surrey and Sussex area involves reducing the spread and/or height of a crown. Not only does this work reduce the loads placed on specific branches, it also plays a vital role in shaping a tree to suit its environment. As respected tree surgeons, we don’t undertake crown reduction for the sake of symmetry and we always retain the crown’s natural framework and outline, albeit in a smaller form.


Tree Pruning – In our role as tree surgeons of choice, we provide property owners in Cranleigh and the southern Home Counties with a complete range of tree pruning services. Whether as a one-off task or as part of ongoing maintenance, we use our expertise to apply pruning cuts that inflict small wounds that any species can swiftly recover from.


Tree Coppicing – As a traditional form of tree surgery, coppicing involves tree surgeons cutting a tree down to within 300mm of the soil line at regular intervals. This process, usually carried out on species including Hazel and Sweet Chestnut, provides wooden implements such as stakes.


Tree Pollarding – As tree surgeons, we undertake this tree surgery procedure in Cranleigh and the neighbouring locations of Esher, Guildford, Petworth and Ashtead in order to create multi-stem branching on young trees. By removing the top of such trees and making similar cuts on a cyclical basis, our clients can grow material for poles, fodder and firewood.


Deadwood Removal – Perhaps self-explanatory, deadwood removal consists of tree surgeons removing non-living stems or branches from trees. However, we only remove segments that represent a significant risk as deadwood acts as a habitat for a variety of wildlife.
