Tree Surgeon - Midhurst, Petworth, Petersfield, Haslemere & Chichester

Richard Costello offering Tree Surgery & Arboricultural services is based in Midhurst, West Sussex, now part of the South Downs National Park, our tree services are available in the Petersfield to Petworth and Haslemere to Chichester area of West Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire (Hants), approximately in a 15 mile radius of Midhurst. Locations outside this area may be considered, please contact us for details.

High quality workmanship and an extensive knowledge of trees and tree surgery are combined to deliver a professional and realistic approach to the management of trees. We are able to offer a comprehensive service covering all aspects of tree surgery including:

Crown Reduction

The ends of all branches are reduced, in length, back to suitable 'growth points' (side branches). As a result the entire tree crown is reduced, in size and volume, whilst retaining the natural shape of the species.

Crown Thinning

Branches are removed from within the tree crown in order to make it consistently less dense. The natural shape of the tree is unaffected, but the 'Sail Effect' (wind resistance) is reduced and more light allowed to filter through.

Crown Lifting

Increasing the gap between ground level and the crown. This is normally achieved by removing the lowest branches of the crown to a specified height.

Tree Felling

Causing a tree to fall under control by carefully making a series of cuts at the base of the trunk.

Sectional Felling

Carefully dismantling a tree in small sections. This operation is usually undertaken using heavy duty rigging equipment, lowering ropes and skilled branch removal techniques.

Dead Wooding

The removal of dead or dying branches usually for safety and aesthetics. Larger dead branches can be safely retained (in order to provide habitat for birds and insects) by reducing their length and weight.

Hedge Cutting

Hedges of any size can be topped and trimmed to your specific dimensions.

Stump Removal

Either by 'grubbing out' by hand (if the stump is small enough), employing a stump grinding machine (if the stump is large) or poisoning the stump and allowing it to slowly decay over time. All pruning cuts comply to modern arboricultural principles which limit, as much as possible, the impact of tree surgery on tree health.
