Specialists in all Species of Hedge Trimming

Our hedge trimming experts have specialist knowledge of all the common species of trees in the UK including the following:

Oak Tree Hedge Trimming

Our expertise in oak tree hedge trimming is well respected across Hertfordshire. The English oak is probably the best known tree in Britain and definitely the most common. Officially known by its Latin name as Quercus Robur, oak trees regularly grow in excess of 20 metres and sometimes up to 40 metres. The fact they grow so tall and have expansive canopies supported by strong branches is not an issue, as our in-depth experience in oak tree hedge trimming and our specialist equipment allow us to tackle any task with ease.

Willow Tree Hedge Trimming

There are around 400 species of willow tree, known in Latin as Salix meaning ‘sallow’. When mature, willow trees grow to around 10 metres tall and have long lifespans up to 300 years. We have particular expertise in dealing with willow tree hedge trimming in Hertfordshire. Due to the breadth of the hanging canopies, dealing with a willow tree that needs hedge trimming does require specific knowhow, which thanks to our long term and wide ranging experience as qualified tree surgeons, we can certainly offer.

Conifer Tree Hedge Trimming

Conifer trees are well known for growing to soaring heights, sometimes up to 100 metres. Of the Latin Pinophyta, there are many different types of conifer including yew, pine, cypress and Douglas fir. If you have any type of conifer on your land, perhaps as a hedge or even just a single tree and it needs pollarding, you can rely on our expertise to safely handle it. Even if you have a full row of exceptionally tall conifers, our Hertfordshire conifer hedge trimming experts will be able to find a solution to prune them back to perfection.

Eucalyptus Tree Hedge Trimming

The eucalyptus tree is an evergreen variety which benefits from expert attention including coppicing and pollarding. Providing they are regularly pruned, eucalyptus trees can be suitable for small gardens, but left unkempt they will grow to quite a height and even in normal conditions they will easily shed bark and branches. If you have a eucalyptus tree it is important to have any dead wood removed regularly and if the tree has grown quite big it is a good idea to have it trimmed. Our eucalyptus hedge trimming service is available in Hertfordshire and we are able to safely handle any job, regardless of the size of the tree or hedge.

Hedge Trimming

Hedge trimming involves the removal of annual growth from your hedges or conifers to make it easier to maintain the area in which they are situated, as well as maintaining an aesthetically pleasing shape. Hedge trimming is recommended once a year to maintain the best shape. Leaving it longer results in more expense due to the need to use chainsaws instead of hedge trimmers.
