Symmetrees are qualified tree surgeons offering professional tree services in South London. We have over 15 years experience in the tree surgery industry and provide a reliable and knowledgeable service. All tree work we carry out will conform to British Standard 3998 Tree Work 2010. Our tree services include

Crown Reduction

Crown reduction and/or reshaping is the practice of cutting back to a side bud or branch to retain a flowing branch line, thus keeping the shape of the tree’s crown whilst reducing the size.

Crown Thinning

Involves the removal of a proportion of secondary and small branch growth from throughout the tree’s crown to produce an even density of foliage around a well-balanced branch structure.

Crown Lift

Removal of the tree’s lower limbs in order to raise head clearance and allow more light into a garden or building.

Tree Felling

This can be done by felling the tree as a whole if space and ground allows, or by dismantling the crown and stem in smaller pieces with the use of rigging techniques.

Tree Stump Removal

This can be done either by digging the stump out if small enough, or with the use of a stump grinder, a machine that progressively chips away at the stump until it’s removed.

Tree Inspection and Maintenance

As living organisms, trees suffer pests, fungal attack and general decline with age. They also have to cope with a changing environment. It’s advisable to have them checked over regularly (we recommend at least once a year).
