Tree Removal & Pruning

We undertake all aerial operations and ground-based felling works.  Our team are experienced and hold NPTC qualifications relating to felling, aerial pruning and dismantling operations working from a rope and harness or MEWP, stump-grinding, wood-chipping and using cranes and forwarders.

Tree Planting

Tree planting is an important method of creating environmental sustainability and regeneration. At Silvawood we offer a comprehensive tree planting service to commercial clients, local authorities, estates and environmental schemes. We also provide a high level of after care and maintenance, ensuring the longevity and health of the newly planted trees.

Woodland Management

We work with woodland owners, estate managers and conservation groups to provide woodland management plans and carry out the required activities, for example thinning and planting. We can also provide advice on planting schemes, tree selection and wildlife habitat improvements.

Hedge Maintenance

Hedge-trimming can be a difficult and time-consuming activity, particularly if having to work at significant heights. Our team can perform regular maintenance for your hedges.  

Site Clearance

In the case of property developments, pipeline laying, highways, Rhododendron and Gorse clearance and other environmental schemes, sites often need to be completely cleared of trees, scrub areas and roots. Silvawood can provide non-burn site clearance services where timber can be forwarded for sale and stumps can be grubbed up and mulched along with the brash with various tracked mulching machines to leave a clean workable site.

 Ash Dieback

(Chalara fraxinea & Hymenoschyphus pseudoalbidus)

As ash dieback takes hold of more trees we’ve been noticing the decline and loss of many trees across our management sites in the Southwest of England. We’ve been working closely with our land owner and management clients to mitigate the affect of there imminent loss to reduce the risk for both roadside trees and public access as well as planning the work in stages to spread the cost; as trees decay further the use of MEWPs (Mobile Elevated Work Platforms) and Mechanical Dismantling (Use of tree shears) will become prevalent in tackling this problem due to the risk of tree failing when climbing with rope and harness and hand felling. Proactive management will both maintain safety and manage cost with predicted loss rates at 99%.
