What We Do

Tree Surgery Services

We specialise in all aspects of Landscaping and Tree Surgery

Domestic And Commercial Tree Surgery

Our team includes highly skilled operatives that specialise in the felling and removal of dead, dying or hazardous trees. Trees may need to be felled due to death, their location or if their structural integrity has been comprised. This can be achieved through clear felling or more often than not by section felling when operating in built up areas or confined spaces. This process involves the tree being climbed and taken down in sections in a safe and controlled manner.

We also carry out tree pruning, shaping, dead-wooding and crown lifting to remove dead, dying or obstructing branches which maintains tree health and sustainability.

Tree Surgery FAQ

What is tree surgery?

Tree surgery, also known as arboriculture, is the practice of cultivating, managing, and caring for individual trees. It involves the application of scientific techniques to promote the health and safety of trees, as well as to enhance their aesthetic and functional qualities within a specific environment. Tree surgeons, or arborists, are professionals trained in the field of arboriculture and are responsible for the care and maintenance of trees.

The tasks performed by tree surgeons include:

  • Pruning: This involves selectively removing branches or parts of a tree to improve its structure, shape, and health. Pruning can also be done for safety reasons, to eliminate dead or hazardous branches.
  • Tree Removal: Sometimes, trees need to be removed due to disease, damage, or safety concerns. Tree surgeons use specialised equipment and techniques to safely fell and remove trees.
  • Tree Planting: Arborists may be involved in selecting appropriate tree species for a particular location and planting them correctly to ensure healthy growth.
  • Tree Health Care: Monitoring and treating trees for diseases, pests, and nutritional deficiencies are important aspects of tree surgery. This may involve applying pesticides, fertilizers, or other treatments.
  • Consultation and Assessment: Tree surgeons often assess the health and condition of trees, providing recommendations for maintenance or removal based on their findings. They may also advise on issues such as tree preservation during construction projects.
  • Emergency Services: In the case of storm damage or other emergencies, tree surgeons may be called upon to remove fallen or hazardous trees quickly and safely.
  • It’s important to note that tree surgery requires knowledge of tree biology, physiology, and safety protocols. Hiring a certified and experienced tree surgeon is recommended for proper tree care and maintenance.

How much does a tree surgeon cost?

The cost of tree surgery can vary widely depending on several factors. Some of the key factors influencing the cost of tree surgery include:

  • Tree Size and Type: Larger and more mature trees generally require more time, effort, and equipment to work on, leading to higher costs. The type of tree also matters, as different species may have different characteristics affecting the complexity of the job.
  • Tree Health and Condition: The overall health and condition of the tree can impact the cost. Diseased or damaged trees may require more extensive work, such as disease treatment, which can increase the overall cost.
  • Location and Accessibility: The location of the tree, as well as its accessibility, can affect the cost of tree surgery. Trees situated in hard-to-reach areas or close to structures may require more careful planning and specialised equipment.
  • Services Needed: The specific services required, such as pruning, removal, wood chipping or stump grinding will contribute to the overall cost. More complex tasks or additional services will generally result in higher prices.
  • Professional Qualifications: Hiring a certified and experienced arborist or tree surgeon may come with a higher cost, but it ensures quality work and adherence to safety standards.

What is a tree surgeon called?

A tree surgeon is also commonly referred to as an arborist. The term “arborist” is derived from the Latin word “arbor,” meaning tree. Arborists are trained professionals who specialise in the cultivation, management, and care of trees. They have expertise in tree biology, physiology, and proper tree care practices.

Arborists, or tree surgeons, perform a variety of tasks related to tree maintenance, including pruning, tree removal, tree planting, disease diagnosis and treatment and overall tree health assessment. They often work to ensure the well-being of individual trees in both urban and natural settings. Additionally, arborists may be involved in consulting on tree-related issues, such as planning for tree preservation in construction projects.

Hiring a certified arborist is recommended for all professional tree care services.

We contacted Elm after purchasing an old traditional cottage in West Clare that had huge overgrowth in the garden and several overhanging trees. To say they transformed the place would be an understatement. The tree surgery guys pruned back the boundary hedges and trees giving us access to a view we didn’t know we had and the entire site was cleared and prepped for a driveway. Site clearance was a massive job as the garden was completely out of control and had large rocks throughout. Once the area was flailed and cleared we could see what we were working with. We now have the perfect starting point to plan our landscaping. The work was completed in a couple of days and we were delighted with the results. Great service!

ELM Landscaping has been fabulous to work with! We cannot say enough about their professionalism, vision, creativity, responsiveness, and work ethic. We undertook a major holiday home renovation project and refreshing the extensive grounds was a major component. ELM Owner Michael Eustace was so responsive to our limited capacity to meet in person and thoughtfully listened to our very general ideas for the landscape, which were greatly enhanced by his vast knowledge of plantings, hardscape, view maximization, and understanding of how we wanted to use the space long term. We were thrilled with the plan and the execution was incredible...every person we have encountered on ELM's crew are hardworking, reliable, and kind. The transformation of the grounds was beyond our imagination and will contribute to the enjoyment of our family visits for years to come. We highly recommend ELM Landscaping!

Great company and service. Very efficient and accommodating. Did a great job of clearing out some old trees on a plot around our newly bought house. Very helpful with small jobs of carying or clearing out branches when my husband asked to lend a hand, not like our previous bad experience with different provider. Hope to work with Michael and his crew for many year to come.

I can highly recommend Elm Landscaping to anyone looking to transform your garden. Elm recently carried out a complete transformation of my garden and their work from start to finish was top class. Michael, Louise and the team were a pleasure to deal with and we couldn't be happier with the final product.

We contacted ELM for "saving" our backyard from a disaster caused by other works (made by another company) gone wrong. We are really happy of how all the works went in our backyard because: - we were followed and lead through the entire process from the first call down to the completion of the works, and perfectly understood what our needs and priorities were - communication and expectation management were absolutely amazing - the attention to the customer and for the details was great, - each employees acted in a very professional way and each one of them know exactly what, how and why was doing that - scheduling of the works were incredibly synchronised and finished in the agreed time, - we got the right advices constantly to avoid potential future issues and all the works were carried out in a very calm way. - we got the incredible opportunity to chose and plant 5 matures trees! In few words "TOP class company"
