Jake Shepherd Arboricultural Services - Offering a wide range of affordable tree surgery services


We are highly trained, experience and insured to do all aspects of the tree surgery trade.

The areas we cover are:

Tree felling / dismantling - The safe and gentle way of taking a tree to ground level. This generally allows more light into surrounding areas. It also means that danger is removed, for example if a tree is dead or dying or has had server storm damage. Amongst other things, sometimes, trees unfortunately are just in the wrong place, so perhaps it just needs to be taken out. We do plant trees though so if you\\\'d like us to re-plant, just let us know!

Crown Reduction - The reduction in height and/or spread of the crown of a tree. Crown reduction may be used to reduce mechanical stress on individual branches or the whole tree, make the tree more suited to its immediate environment or to reduce the effects of shading and light loss, etc. The final result should retain the main framework of the crown and leave a similar, although smaller outline.

Crown Thinning - Crown thinning is the removal of a portion of smaller branches, usually at the outer crown. This means there is evenly spaced branch structure. Crown thinning does not alter the overall size or shape of the tree. Common reasons for crown thinning are to allow more light to pass through the tree, reduce wind resistance, reduce weight is rarely a once-only operation so you would tend to thin every 3-5 years depending on species.

Crown Lifting - Crown lifting is the removal of the lowest branches and/or preparing of lower branches for future removal. Crown lifting is an effective way of allowing more light to areas under the tree and allow dense areas to get more airflow and light.

Hedge Cutting - Hedge cutting makes the shrubs and boundary hedges in your green space look sharp and smart and keep everything looking tidy.

Stump Grinding - Stump grinding is the mechanical removal of a tree stump, whether we remove the tree or whether it is a tree that a previous company has felled. We have a pedestrian stump grinder that will go through a standard door way or a larger grinder that will require slightly wider access.

Site Clearance - If you require a site to be cleared for building works or have just moved into a property that has been let go, we can come in and clean the canvas for you to see what space has been taken over by weeds and trees.

Planting - Although we are very good at working on well established trees, we make sure that if people are looking to help the environment by planting new ones, the skills we have ensure that the tree will have a good chance of flourishing into a tree that future generations of arborists will be able to one day work on. We can offer advice on what to plant and where, all you need to do is ask one of our friendly staff members for advice.
