Tree Pruning in Cardiff

Our tree pruning services are implemented to a high standard and in a fashion that minimises stress on the trees. All projects implemented use cuts to the branch collar , as specified in guidelines BS3998 Recommendations for tree work (2010), ensuring the avoidance of flush cuts.

In the case of dead, diseased or damaged tree branches, our Cardiff tree surgeons will ensure pruning is implemented back to the branch collar. Where branches are crossed or rubbing, we take great care to ensure we prune correctly; leaving a healthy, balanced and aesthetically pleasing final tree.

Tree Pruning Safety

City Tree Surgeons ensure every tree work project implemented is carried out with safety in mind. All large limbs are lowered by ropes and harnesses to our groundsmen in a controlled manner, ensuring safety for our Team, the tree being pruned, and any surrounding buildings or property. City Tree Surgeons take pride in ensuring our final site is cleared and of no obstruction to the property owner.

I only scored City Tree Surgeons 10 in all fields because it wouldn’t let me score any higher. To say that we are delighted with the work carried out would be an understatement and I can’t recommend City Tree Surgeons highly enough. I chose them because of the work they carried out on my neighbours trees, they’re also working on my next door but one neighbours trees as well. I will use no one else apart from City Tree Surgeons to carry out tree work in my garden in the future

Mr Roberts,

I can’t fault City Tree Surgeons , from the first visit to completing the work Henri was very helpful, extremely informative and professional, the work was done with skill and care on our 500 year old horse chestnut and the clean up was thorough, you wouldn’t know they had been. I would highly recommend City Tree Surgeons .

Mrs Morris,

I was very happy with the work done. They were quick, accurate and thoughtful. They cleared up after themselves, so much so that the garden was much more tidy than when they arrived! They worked very hard in extremely humid conditions but didn’t even stop for a break. I would be very happy to use City Tree Surgeons again and I thought their rates were very competitive

Mrs Andrew,
