Domestic Tree Surgery Aldershot

We’re deeply passionate about arboriculture, which is why we aim to educate our customers on how they can maintain their trees in a safe and accessible way. Before starting any project, we’ll work with you to advise on the most suitable course of action while also trying to understand the vision you have for your garden.

Here are just some of the services available from County Tree Care:

Tree Removal & Tree Felling Aldershot

While often seen as a last resort, tree felling and removal is a complex and labour-intensive task. It also requires a very high skill level to be carried out safely. If you have dangerous trees posing a threat to your property or wish to open up additional space, tree removal could be the perfect solution.

Crown Reductions & Tree Pruning Aldershot

County Tree Care provides tree pruning Surrey wide and across the southeast. Tree pruning is one of the most common arboreal tasks that we carry out. Regular canopy maintenance keeps trees in immaculate condition and helps to ensure their long-term health.

Tree Pollarding Aldershot

Pollarding a tree is a process that helps to reduce the density of the upper canopy area, preserving its natural shape for years to come. You can also use this method to control the level of light and visibility that floods your garden space.

Emergency Tree Surgeon Aldershot (24 hour call out)

Given the unpredictable British weather, it’s incredibly difficult to guarantee trees’ safety in your garden from one year to another. Surrey emergency tree work will ensure that any threats to your property are dealt with quickly and professionally with short notice bookings available where needed.

Stump Grinding Aldershot

Removing problem stumps from your garden can be incredibly tricky, particularly without the tools or training. Every arborist is trained to the highest standard, and we use modern equipment so that every stump grinding project can be completed quickly, with a minimum of fuss.

Hedge Cutting Aldershot

Keeping your hedges under control can often be as big a challenge as maintaining your trees! From garden borders to ornamental hedges, our staff can help you to keep these beautiful plants in check all year round.

Tree Planting Aldershot

We’ve already touched on tree removal as being a last resort, but if you wish to keep your trees, we offer a full replanting service. Transplanting means you don’t have to say goodbye to your much loved and established trees.

Land, Garden & Site Clearance Aldershot

Our expert site & garden clearance service is most commonly used to prepare land for development or to reclaim overgrown gardens. We use compact hand tools such as chainsaws and brush cutters for small residential projects. When tackling large clearance projects, we use plant machinery to speed up the process.

Commercial Tree Surgery Aldershot

In addition to our residential services, we also provide expert tree surgery to the commercial sector. We strongly believe keeping your property looking pristine is the perfect way to impart a great impression. County Tree Cares commercial services are available on both an ad hoc and contractual basis.

How Much Does It Cost To Hire A Tree Surgeon In Aldershot?

The cost of tree surgery in Aldershot and across Southeast England can vary greatly, but at County Tree Care we always provide the most competitive price without making allowances for the quality of the work. Some so-called tree surgeons may offer to complete the work cheaper, but this is often because they don’t have the right training or insurance or because they plan to cut corners.

Below we have put together a rough guideline of how much we charge for tree removaltree fellingstump grinding and hedge cutting. However, please remember that every job has its own challenges and considerations, which we must make allow for in the final price.

Unfortunately, there is no easy or definitive answer regarding how much it costs to remove a tree. The lack of a clear answer can be frustrating for people as work cost is probably the most critical factor for some.

In monetary terms, how much it costs to remove a tree is heavily dependent on numerous factors (outlined below) but generally starts around £100+VAT, but this increases with the complexity and size of the job.

How Big or Tall is the Tree?

As a rule of thumb, the larger the tree, the more complicated, time-consuming and expensive the job. If a tree is tall or widespread, the tree surgeon will take more time accessing parts of the canopy. The contractor will require extra care as the dismantled pieces will be more substantial or have further to fall.

Do parts of the tree overhang buildings or property?

If parts of the tree overhang any buildings or property, we will have to implement additional measures and take more time to help ensure nothing is damaged. For example, we may have to lower using ropes and rigging techniques instead of letting branches free fall, or we may have to take time preparing the ground with ground protection mats.

Is the tree easy to access?

In an ideal world, we could position our truck and chipper as close to the tree as possible to minimise transport of the dismantled tree. This is rarely the case in Surrey and Hampshire, and we will often have to move the tree sections some distance. The level of awkwardness and distance from the tree to the truck will considerably impact the job’s price.

Will the process of removing the tree pose a risk to the public?

If your tree is near a path/road, we may need permission to close the path or implement traffic management. As expected, there are increased costs associated with granting a path closure and traffic management.

Will you dispose of the tree waste?

Like trees, the waste can take up a lot of room, so more often than not, we are asked to remove all the debris from the site. We can, of course, leave the chippings or cordwood if you have use for them, but if you require disposal, we will need to factor that into the price.

Could I not just borrow a chainsaw and fell the tree myself?

DIY tree surgery is certainly NOT something we would advise. Using a chainsaw without the proper training and PPE is dangerous enough, and when you combine that with felling a large tree, it will most likely end in disaster. At County Tree Care, our qualified arborists have the relevant training and experience to tackle any tree safely and with minimum risk to persons or property.

Now we will address the key factors that will affect the cost of the stump grinding job:

What is the diameter of the stump?

As you would expect, the bigger the diameter of the stump, the larger the cost. Stumps of size will take more time due to grinding a higher volume of material, and it will also require a more expensive, powerful grinder. In contrast, smaller stumps will cost much, much less. As a rough guide, we charge from £10 (+VAT) per inch in diameter (a minimum call-out charge may apply).

What is the tree species, and how big are the roots?

Different tree species have different types of root systems; some species’ roots are shallow and short, whereas others can be deep and widespread. For example, cherry tree roots are generally broad, whereas conifers are relatively stubby. Trees with expansive or deep root systems can take several hours to grind out, and this increase in time will increase the price. The species of tree will also determine how hard or soft the wood is, and this, in turn, will also impact the cost. When we price our stump grinding service, we only price for the main body of the stump (the buttress) and the primary lateral roots, but if you require any other root removal, we are more than happy to do this for an added cost.

Where is the stump’s location, and is it easy to access?

The location plays an integral part in calculating the tree stump removal cost. Access difficulties are more noticeable, but we must also consider the ground’s topography and the bedrock’s level. Any uneven ground may pose a safety risk, and high levels of rock in the soil can cause damage to the stump grinder teeth, which will slow down the grinding process.

How many stumps do you require grinding?

We can offer great discounts for grinding multiple stumps on the same day if you have numerous stumps to remove.

Can I not just hire a stump grinder and do it myself?

Stump grinders are available to hire from many tool hire shops throughout Hampshire, Surrey and the South East, but we would certainly NOT recommend hiring one without adequate training. Stump grinders are dangerous pieces of machinery and, if misused, may cause severe injury or damage to property. Stump grinding also requires skill and experience to do it efficiently, so why not leave it to County Tree Care as this will save you effort, time, and risk.

When calculating how much it is to cut a hedge, it’s essential to remember that there are quite a few things that can affect the price, and as a result, there is no universal price for cutting hedges. As tree professionals, we assess these considerations autonomously, but we appreciate that these factors may not always be visible. To give you an insight into our pricing process and a rough idea of the costs involved, we have listed some considerations below.

How big is the hedge you require cutting?

The most obvious and vital factor to consider when calculating the hedge cutting cost is the size of the hedge. A large hedge has a more significant surface area to trim and more material to dispose of, which will take more time and increase the price. If your hedge is gigantic, we may also need to use a rope and harness or even a cherry picker (MEWP) to safely access it, all of which will involve added costs.

Where is your hedge located, and is it easy to access?

Secondly, the location of your hedge is also a crucial consideration as, quite often, obstructions make the job more tricky. Common obstacles we have to tackle are garden ornaments, ponds, sheds and greenhouses, all of which will need to be moved or avoided and slow the process down. Likewise, if there are pinch points, slopes, tight corners or narrow access, this tends to make projects longer as it will take more time to get the debris out. Equally, if your hedge is in the rear garden, the trimmings will have further to travel, which will take longer and increase the job’s price.

So how much is it to have a hedge cut?

As previously indicated, there is no average price for cutting hedges, so each hedge will need to be priced individually. To give you a rough idea, we generally charge our hedge trimming service at £90 (+VAT) per hour for a two-person team. If we require climbing equipment, then it will cost roughly £120 (+VAT) per hour. Finally, if we need to use a MEWP (cherry picker), there will be an additional cost of around £350 (+VAT)

Could I not just cut the hedge myself?

If your hedge is relatively small, you could always attempt to cut the hedging yourself, but you will find it very difficult to reach the standard of finish achieved by our skilled arborists. When it comes to larger hedges, this is, without doubt, something you should leave to trained professionals. County Tree Care’s surgeons have all the equipment and knowledge needed to safely and efficiently tackle the most significant hedges.
