Tree Surgeon Services in Kent

Full Crown Reductions

Kent Tree SurgeonReducing the overall volume and size of a tree’s crown, while maintaining the natural shape of the tree. It may be that you would like to keep your tree but you want more light in your garden, or you feel uncomfortable with the tree’s size given its proximity to your property. Typically we use a technique called drop crotching. This is where the arborist in the tree prunes to the most suitable growth removing the weaker leaders to produce both a natural and balanced crown. Don’t be fooled in to heavy reductions by other tree companies. This is a bad form of tree management, and doesn’t benefit the tree or you! Typically heavy pruning will produce heavy re-growth costing you as a Kent homeowner more in the long term and stressing the tree, making it more susceptible to disease and or die back.

Crown Thinning

Crown thinning leaves the overall size of the tree as it is, focusing more on selected branches within the crown. These branches are often those that are either dead, crossing another branch or growing in to the canopy with no future. Crown thinning reduces the risk of failure in heavy winds and also creates an evenly balanced crown.

Crown Lifting

To remove the lowest branches of the trees canopy creating a formal look. Often carried out on roadside trees, lifting is an effective and affordable way of increasing the light in to your garden or opening up a view once again. Lifting is more often than not done as an alternative to a full crown reduction. When light is an issue but height isn’t.

Hedge Trimming

Hedge Trimming in KentHedge trimming and shaping is a great way to improve the look of your garden. Broadleaf Tree Surgery have years of experience in all kinds of hedge trimming and shaping and a keen eye for detail. We take pride in each and every one of the hedges we maintain year in, year out. Hedges often provide a formal look to a garden,or give you an element of privacy. Another common hedging purpose is for noise reduction. Regardless if it’s a large leylandii tree hedge that needs trimming or a small beech hedge we will produce the best finish each and every time. We specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases that affect hedges such as conifer aphids. Conifer Aphids cause unsightly brown dead patches and can kill whole hedges if left untreated.

Deadwood Removal

Trees naturally produce deadwood as branches die over time. Indeed in an area of untravelled woodland this provides excellent wildlife habitat. Unfortunately for trees in the urban environment this is a problem if your tree is in a heavily used public area, or overhanging a road this can be a hazard.

Frequently Asked Questions

We do! All waste generated by the tree work we carry out is taken away from site. We use our wood chipper to mulch the arisings and this is taken directly to our yard where it is processed in to compost and re used on a local farm as fertiliser. Occasionally customers require the wood chip to be used on flower beds to suppress weed growth, or on paths. Just let us know what you require.  Any thing that we can’t chip because it’s too big is either taken to our yard and left to season for processing in to firewood, or chipped by a large biomass wood chipper and recycled. We try to be as green as possible at Broadleaf Tree Surgery And everything is done in as efficient a manner as possible to reduce our carbon footprint. If you require the wood from your job to be left for you to use as firewood that’s no problem either we will even cut it up and stack it for you! And just for some extra peace of mind we are fully licensed and regulated to carry waste and dispose of it.

Mulberry Tree Works – Mrs Wallis. Church St, Burham, Rochester

“Broadleaf tree Surgery gave 100% professional service when I contacted them regarding my Mulberry tree. From on-site consultation, where a fair price was given & formalised in a written quotation. An appointment was booked and the work carried out as agreed.
My tree now looks well balanced, lower limbs that were blocking my view over the downs were removed. My log cabin and decking where the tree is situated were completely unscathed by this work due to their care and attention.
The site was left clean and tidy and the work completed at the price quoted and agreed. I would highly recommend Aarons company to anyone seeking a professional tree surgeon.”

Aaron and his team were great!  We had a considerable amount of work done to the garden, including the felling and removal of 4 large trees and several smaller ones.

Throughout the time Broadleaf were with us they were polite, helpful and extremely professional in everything they did.  Aaron is very knowledgable and really passionate about what he does and this shines through not only in his work, but also in his team.

We were delighted with all aspects of the work they did for us and would recommend them unreservedly to any prospective customer.   Andy and Kay Hallett

Mr Clark. Tree pruning in Staplehurst

I thoroughly recommend Broadleaf Tree Surgery. On the day, Aaron and his colleague did a great job, cleaned up all the mess and made quick work of what is a very large oak tree. He made sure he clarified what we wanted on a couple of decisions which was important given the amount of other people’s land the tree goes over. They were very professional yet easy going.

Ms Hutton. Tree cutting in Maidstone

Good value for money, and a pleasant bunch to deal with!….Even though the weather was against them.

Mr and Mrs Pope. Tree pruning in Maidstone

I have a large Willow tree in the rear garden. We love the tree and see it as an asset to our property, because of this we were very careful about who we chose to use when we decided we wanted to reduce the crown.

We went with Broadleaf Tree surgery over 3 other local companies. Aaron was punctual, polite and knowledgeable when he came to quote the job, and on the day he and the team worked hard and left our garden in an immaculate state, better than it was before they started! We will certainly be using the company again
