Due to factors such as the size, location, access of the tree and under lying features (ie fences, green houses and ponds etc.) it is impossible for us to give you a price over the phone. However, We offer a FREE no obligation quotation following a site visit arranged at a convenient time to you.

If your tree needs attention for safety reasons, we will make it our priority to get to you as soon as possible. However our lead time for tree work is approximately 3 weeks. It will take a minimum of 6 weeks if you live in a Conservation Area or your tree has a Tree Preservation Order ( TPO ) on it. This is due to planning permission having to be filed with the local planning authority to carry out certain work.

Following every site visit we will check with the local planning authority to see if you are in a Conservation Area or if your tree has a TPO covering it. If this is the case we will fill out the relevant forms and paper work on your behalf completely free of charge. It will take a minimum of 6 weeks for the planning process to run before works can commence. We will keep you informed and updated with the decisions of the LPA as we get them.

None of the tree/plant material we remove from your site goes into landfill. All the branches that can be are put through our wood chipper and recycled into woodchip/mulch. We take this to our holding yard where the chip is `turned over’ to help it break down evenly. After 6 weeks the woodchip/mulch is ready to go back onto borders as soil improving mulch. We sell seasoned split firewood by the truck load ( Approx 3m³ ) or by the dumpy bag ( Approx 1m³ ).

Under the Town and Country Act 1990, it is an offence to “cut down, top, lop, uproot, wilfully damage or wilfully destroy ‘’ your tree without Local Planning Authority permission.   We can apply for permission on your behalf to carry out the required works completely free of charge.

There are many species of trees and most can be pruned through out the year but there are a few exceptions.Prunus species such as Apple, Cherry, Plum and related trees should be pruned either during winter when the tree is dormant or after flowering to reduce the risk of bacterial infection, this can also help increase fruit production.Species such as Maple, Birch, Beech and Hornbeam should not be pruned in the spring to avoid rising sap loss (Bleeding), which although not considered damaging to the tree can be unsightly. Species such as Magnolia and Walnut should be pruned at the end of summer when in full leaf but before leaf drop.

You could be liable for any accident the operator may have. This could be to your property or your neighbour’s property. It could be personal injury to anyone, including any assistant with the operator or the operator himself.  The advice would be not to use uninsured tree surgeons. L & M Tree Services Ltd. have in place a £5 million public liability insurance policy giving you complete peace of mind.
