Wherever possible, we aim to protect and preserve trees, however there are times when trees have to be removed to make way for construction projects or because they have become hazardous to public Health & Safety through storm damage, accidental trauma, structural weakness or disease.


Trees which are known to be dead, dying or damaged present a significant risk to the public, especially in urban areas and extreme care must be taken to dismantle or fell them safely. This is skilled work requiring specialist equipment, stringent health and safety procedures and a thorough knowledge of arboriculture.

Please note: Many trees are protected in the UK so before any work is undertaken, checks must be made to ensure it is not covered by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) or situated within a Conservation Area.

Sectional Dismantling


When a tree has to be removed in a confined space and felling is not an option, we undertake sectional dismantling instead, bringing the tree down a piece at a time. This is highly skilled work where experience and knowledge are needed and since each tree and its circumstances are unique, we must discuss the project, identify any particular hazards, then decide the most appropriate technique and equipment to use.

An arborist will usually climb to the top of the tree to anchor his main climbing rope, then come down to the lowest branch to begin cutting but if the tree is dead or dangerously unstable we use a Mobile Elevating Work Platform (MEWP) to access the tree.

Ropes are used to lower branches to the ground, where they are cut up into manageable sections and taken away to produce logs. Stringent health and safety procedures are adhered to throughout the process.


Felling

Felling is only possible where there is sufficient space around the tree to bring it down safely in one piece. A & M’s team of professional tree surgeons/arborists has the knowledge, experience and specialist equipment to fell and remove even the largest trees.

All material is removed and forwarded as timber or recycled as logs or wood chippings. Stump removal services are also offered if required.

Our quote includes the removal of all arisings produced from the work, however, we can provide logging if requested which may decrease the cost. (Please ask for this in the initial quotation)
Absolutely not, we provide free quotes not estimates which means the price we quote is the price customers pay. We don’t ask for payment until the customer has inspected and approved the finished work.
We predominately cover North Wales & North West England, however, work further afield when requested by customers.
Many factors affect the cost of tree work and it is impossible to predict the price prior to an inspection. All quotes are given after the tree has been inspected.
