Trees are dynamic organisms and therefore no two trees are alike or are subject to exactly the same environmental and topographical influences. Therefore we at Modern Arb treat each individual situation and query as unique. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any advise or would like to organise a site visit.
Under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, if the tree/s are in a conservation area and are over 75mm in girth at 1.3m or are subject to a Tree Preservation Order, permission is required from the Local Planning Authority before works can commence. We can obtain this permission on your behalf free of charge.
Crown Reductions/ Hedge Trimming/ Topiary & Shaping
Trees can be reduced in size to contain their height and spread or for safety reasons. Many trees and hedges are trimmed or pruned for aesthetical reasons and can be beautiful garden features.
Tree Felling & Stump Grinding
Trees require removal for many reasons. We can safely dismantle any tree using proven lowering techniques. Stump Grinding removes the ‘bowl’ of the stump and can facilitate replanting.
Crown Thinning/ General Maintenance Schedules
Tree owners have a ‘duty of care’ to ensure the safety of their trees. Responsibility for tree safety can be alleviated by cyclical maintenance. The lack of light through shade is a regular problem and can be improved by thinning of the canopy.
Tree Planting/ Transplanting/ Mychorizae & De-compaction Treatments
Greater London is residence to more trees than people. Therefore to maintain this unique status as the greenest metropolis in the world we need to maintain our tree population by planting and improving soil conditions.
