Stephen Bacon Tree Surgeons hhave been providing a professional and insured services to clients in and around Chichester, West Sussex and Hampshire for over 10 years.
We pride ourselves on the work we do and offer Free Quotations on all jobs.
We work on all size of hedgerows, helping to maintain both the look and health of the hedge. As long as the hedge is maintained from the beginning, it can be controlled and be a feature of your garden for a very long time.
We are qualified and trained to deal with all issues relating to trees, their maintenance and removal. Depending on the needs of the client based on changes to their garden layout, an extension or indeed an unhealthy or dying tree it may be that work has to be carried out so we’ve listed the differing types of tree surgeon job.
Crown reductions – this is where we reduce the size of the top of the tree by removing the limbs and branches at the top of the tree, to give the tree a healthier and cleaner look, also allowing more light into the canopy and your garden.
Crown thinning – a common job in older trees or trees that have not had work carried out before is to reduce the density of the branches. This is a valuable service to the tree as it allows it to breath and lose dead wood.
Crown lifting – we often find trees that have filled out in the lower stump area and this becomes a problem as it fills out and blocks access around the tree. By thinning these branches we help by lifting the lower section.
Felling – it may be you’re building and need the space or the tree is unwell, so for whatever reason we would need to fell the tree and remove it completely. This is a dangerous job and requires specialist equipment as it may result in injury to person or property.
Pruning and shaping – as a tree or bushes are reshaped and pruned it reduces the leaf area and that sends a growth spurt to new areas so your tree will look and feel healthier whilst visually the tree or edge will look tidy.
Stump grinding – the stump and root system of a tree can be huge and either after a storm or other damage this may be an eye sore in your garden, so we aim to dispose of the stump with specialist equipment that let’s us grind it down to wood chip letting you regain that lost space.
Dead wood – we’ve all seen trees that look tired and broken, but it’s often areas that are dead. By carefully assessing the tree we can selectively cut out those areas hopefully bringing the tree back to life and giving it a smarter and healthier look. Dead wood is very unpredictable and must not be handled by an inexperienced person.
Pollarding – we use this method to bring trees into line by removing branches that give the look of reducing height that in turn encourages growth.
Tree planting – assessing where and how to plant the required tree based on the surroundings and soil types, we will provide a full service from assessment to providing the trees and planting.
