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
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 .
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
Stump Grinding in Cardiff
Stump grinders consist of a carbide toothed wheel powered by a petrol or diesel motor that spins at high speed and eats away the stump with a slewing action.
If the area is only being re-turfed then it is only really necessary to stump grind to a depth of approximately 6 inches. However sometimes complete removal is necessary and we can usually grind out the whole stump and, if needed, any surface roots. We have machines that will tackle any size of stump in almost any location. Please contact your local tree surgeons to discuss your requirements.
Stump Treatment in Cardiff
When a stump is being retained it can be treated to stop any regrowth (depending on species). Our tree surgeons can advise on which species will have a tendency to re-sprout and advise what action should be taken. There are a number of products on the market, some more environmentally friendly than others. We generally only use the least intrusive and damaging methods if chemical treatment is deemed necessary.

Winching or Digging
Depending on many factors including size of tree, species and situation, there are occasionally quicker and easier methods of stump removal in Cardiff than there are grinding. Sometimes our surgeons can winch over the whole tree using specialist equipment. The whole root system is quickly and easily removed along with the rest of the tree saving the time needed to grind the stump.
Equally if there are just a couple of very small stumps to remove, using a mattock and a spade can prove easier than getting heavy machinery involved. We have years of experience in choosing the most efficient and cost effective means of removing stumps in Cardiff.
