Tree Planning & Advice

Tree Planning

ACTG Services can complete applications concerning work needed/required when a Tree Preservation Order is in place or when the tree grows within a Conservation Area. Usually a response is received from the appropriate area Council within 6 weeks. A correctly completed Application Form/Notice of Intent Form can make the request/application smoother by using the correct terminology/description of work to done.

Tree Advice

We will fully assess and evaluate the health and condition of your trees and offer advice on all issues relevant to your tree and explain the reasons for work to be conducted.

Windblown/Dangerous Trees

Risk assessment, advice and treatment of wind damaged trees.

Tree Felling & Removal

A tree may become unsafe because it is dead/structurally defective caused by disease, old age or simply poor upkeep. When a tree requires removal we can dismantle it using correct rigging techniques, equipment and qualified personnel.

Stump Grinding

Solving the problem of a stump that may be unsightly or in the way of re-planting. We grind the remaining stump down below the soil level to a pre-agreed depth. Some tree stumps will produce shoots from the stump if left.

Wood Chipping

You may have started some tree work yourself and need some of the garden brash chipped and taken away. This is a service we offer. All our wood chips are recycled either at a local allotment or stock piled for future compost.

All tree surgery is conducted in line with the British Standard for tree work (BS3998), enabling safe and effective workmanship. All green waste will be taken off site and disposed of in an environmentally friendly way. We can also chop up/log any branches and trunks into firewood for you.

& Recommendations
Here's what our customers have to say about us...

"ACTG Services did some work for me to tame a large and unruly cherry tree. Alex provided a professional and friendly service, bringing back some much-needed light into the garden, whilst keeping the tree looking healthy and full. He has since returned to work on smaller jobs and has always been professional and accommodating"


"From consultation to work being carried out Alex was very professional, hard working and thorough. Our home was left spotless from carry cuttings through our house and the finished results were brilliant. We will always use Alex (ACTG Services) in the future and always highly recommend him to our friends and family"


"I urgently needed a sprawling ivy that climbs over my walls and gate tamed back into a sensible shape, and also help cutting up and disposing of some logs. Alex (ACTG Services) helped swiftly and efficiently with both"


"Excellent service! Alex went above and beyond what we asked for. It was so nice to get our garden space back. We're very grateful and would recommend ACTG Services to everyone"


"I am extreamly pleased with all aspects of Alex's work. He (and his team) are courteous, professional and provide informed and thoughtful advice when required. The garden is always left tidy and clear of any debris. From pruning, hedge cutting and removing trees, to mowing, garden clearance and general maintenance it is always completed in a thorough and efficient manner. Alex's work on our garden has spanned over 1 year and I can recommend him without hesitation"


"Alex carefully looked at each of the trees in turn to decide how best to deal with them. His remit was to lower the height and thin out the branches. I needed more light coming through to the garden. Alex tidied up the garden very well after all the cutting and pruning had taken place and all of the debris was removed from site. I am very pleased with the end result"


"Alex (ACTG Services) took down our large Ash tree, which was badly diseased. The work was completed in an extremely professional manner. He is a very clean and tidy worker and left us the logs, as requested, in manageable sections for firewood. He removed the whole stump (including buttress/side roots) using a stump grinding machine. Alex left the area in great order with no damage at all to the house"
