This is a common issue for tree surgeons in South West London, especially in densely built and populated areas, such as Kensington and Chelsea, Wandsworth and Lambeth, where space is at a premium.
It is always possible to remove or prune or reduce trees of any size in limited spaces and we have many years of experience in working in these areas so have all of the relevant skills and equipment to tackle projects in confined spaces without damage or undue inconvenience. By using a combination of roping systems and by dismantling trees in manageable sections, our professional tree surgeons can ensure the protection of paving, fences, greenhouses, planted areas and of course neighbouring properties.
We commonly work in trees above pavements and roads, where the protection of the public is a primary requirement. By having sufficient, qualified and experienced ground staff, we can manage traffic and pedestrians to ensure that all work is carried out whilst eliminating the risk to the public and their property in any situation. We of course also carry all of the relevant insurances for this type of work.
No Side Access to Garden
In situations where there is no alternative access other than through a property, we appreciate that it is imperative to treat this access with the utmost care. We respect our customer’s property and are very experienced at removing tree branches or debris whilst avoiding damage and limiting disruption. We take great pains to ensure that we leave your property as tidy, or even tidier than we found it.
Whether performing a tree removal or reducing and pruning a tree, we process all debris into bundles that can be wrapped up in bags and carried underarm. We tailor the size of these bundles to suit the access, taking huge care to ensure your home is protected. We use dust sheets to protect the floors from door to door and our previous customers have always been appreciative of our efforts to limit disruption and our respect for their property.
