Tree surgery

All our work is undertaken to BS 3998.

Examples of the kinds of work we do are:

  • Crown reductions / thinning / cleaning / lifting
  • Pollarding
  • Dead wooding
  • Dismantling of large trees
  • Stump grinding
  • Formative pruning

Difficult Locations

Sylva Trees have recently invested in a specialised vessel that allows us to undertake all forms of arboriculture from the water. This gives us access to difficult locations such as canal and riversides, and also allows us to easily remove the waste.

Please see the waterside page for more information.


All our waste is removed from the site and recycled, please see the waste page for details.
