A tree surgeon can carry out a huge range of tasks, varying in size and demand, so it is impossible to provide a confirmed quote or advise what the job may cost without knowing what the job entails. To provide an accurate quote based on the work you would like completed, we will send out one of our experienced surveyors to your property to carry out a site inspection. This service is completely free and with no obligation. 

Our professional services are priced fairly and competitively, and you are guaranteed to have complete peace of mind thanks to our years of knowledge and experience in the industry. Contact us today for a quote.

There are a few different methods on how to get a rid of a tree stump. If it is a small stump, this can be pulled out with a winch or by using a stump and root killer. These can be hired by gardeners with the knowledge to use them safely. 

For professional tree stump removal, we would highly recommend getting in touch with us to ensure that the process is carried out effectively and safely. For a no obligation stump grinding quote, please call us today on 01245 955117. 

If you would like to cut a hedge on your property, it’s important to make sure you trim the sides of the hedge at an angle, so that it is wider at the bottom and slightly narrower at the top. Doing so will allow the sunlight to reach the lower branches and root system, which will help the hedge to grow green and healthy. 

Here at Essex Tree Brothers, we provide a wide range of tree services, including hedge planting and maintenance, so if you are interested in having your hedges cut then we recommend getting in touch with us. 

Our experience and knowledge in the industry will allow us to advise you on the best way to tackle a hedge, and we will be able to carry out the work safely and efficiently – and for a competitive price too. 

When it comes to tree root removal, we would recommend this in instances when trees are felled or fall, so that the roots can be removed to prevent suckering and fungal root rots. We only recommend removing tree roots when they are damaging or infringing on a nearby structure. 

Tree root removal isn’t a process that we would recommend trying yourself. Instead, we would recommend you get in touch with our friendly team who will be able to arrange a free no-obligation site visit to assess the situation and provide you with a competitive quote. 

Yes, we do offer phone quotations here at Essex Tree Brothers! To provide a more accurate quote however, we can arrange a FREE site visit to accurately assess the area and provide the expert advice that you need. Call the team today on 07447 610527 to find out more.

The best time to prune your trees is in late Spring through to Summer, as it’s best to prune once the leaves have ‘flushed’ and hardened.

It’s important to prune your trees to ensure they stay healthy in the long-term and help to encourage growth.

A tree’s pruning cycle is typically 3 to 5 years, but this can differ depending on the species, size and health of the tree.

If you’re unsure, we’d recommend contacting us for further advice.

A tree felling licence is likely to be required for felling over 5 m³ per quarter, although private gardens and some commercial areas are normally exempt.

You will need permission to fell a tree in your garden or land if:

  • It is covered by a tree preservation order
  • It is within a designated conservation area
  • It is on a rented property
  • It is protected by a legal covenant

The first thing to do is to contact your neighbour for a chat as soon as possible to discuss the options.

Whether your neighbour things the hedge is too high, or the branches are overhanging into their garden for example, it’s important to find a solution to keep both parties happy.

You should mutually decide what to do, but if the problem escalates and has no outcome, then you may need to get a mediator to help or speak to the council.

For help and support, get in touch with the Essex Tree Brothers team today.
