Trees are a fantastic addition to any garden but if left unmaintained they can quickly get out of hand and cause problems for your home. Where possible we’ll always recommend against the complete removal of a tree as there are often far better alternatives such as crown trimming or crown reductions which will bring your trees back under control and looking great.

After going through the hassle and expense of having trees removed from your garden, why leave unsightly tree stumps in their place? Grinding those stumps down below the surface of the topsoil allows for effective repair and replanting of the area and prevents the spread of fungi. Stump grinding is much less expensive than stump removal processes and it eliminates the disturbance of the surrounding lawn area. Call today for stump grinder prices in Wigan & Manchester.
Make light work of even the biggest of jobs with our wood chipping service to turn waste materials such as branches into quality, saleable wood chip. Wood chippings can be used as mulch for plant beds and is a great way of reducing the size and volume of garden waste. A necessity for any big pruning, felling or crown reduction job, our wood chipping service is available to customers in Wigan and throughout Greater Manchester.
There are three forms of crowning: crown thinning, crown lifting and crown reduction. Crown thinning removes the density of the branches and removes anything dangerous whilst keeping the attractive shape of the tree. Crown lifting removes the lower branches. Crown reduction reduces the height and spread of the tree whilst minimising the natural shape of the species.
Although usually applied to bushes, trees can also benefit from judicious pruning. This includes the removal of suckers growing from the base of a tree. If your bush or tree grows over a public highway (including a pavement) it will need to conform to the Highways Act. We can advise what is necessary and carry out the work required. Read more on our tree pruning service page.
How a tree is felled depends on where it is. If there is sufficient space, the tree can be straight felled so the whole tree falls from its base guided by ropes and wedges. Even if there is space and it is to fall on a lawn, we take care to minimise the damage and repair the surface after removal. If there is insufficient space, we section fell the tree, that is, take it down bit by bit.
Once a tree has been felled we can also remove the stump to leave you with a fresh start. There are a couple of options for doing this: digging the stump out using hand tools and sometimes a winch or stump grinding which involves machine grinding the stump to about a foot below ground level and covering it over with soil to the required level.

“A really excellent team! No fuss. Just got on with the job of clearing the brambles that became an eyesore at the end of our garden. Then they paved it and we put a garden bench on it. Looks wonderful!”RDR, Standish
“We love our tree but it grew too tall and the neighbours complained. LTC came along and took great pains to give it a Crown Reduction. It was like it had a face lift! And the lads were so polite!”Ms MF, Liverpool
