I recently had the need to hire a bamboo removal company, and I couldn't be happier with the service from Devon Arborists. From the initial consultation to the final clean-up, they were professional, efficient, and knowledgeable. The team worked diligently to remove the bamboo without causing any damage to my property and also from my neighbours property as the bamboo had spread. It’s the second time I have used them and the second time of being highly impressed!! Highly recommend their services.

What a great bunch! Really friendly, professional team, super careful and tidy. We had a significant number of large leylandi removed and an ash crown reduced. Super smooth couple of days and the garden looks great. Highly recommended, you won’t be disappointed.

Max, Theo and the team have done a great job on our quite challenging property in Lyme Regis. Situated on a hill the team were still able to get their impressive equipment to do the necessary tree felling, stump grinding and general pruning. Their extremely positive attitude and helpfulness made the experience a real pleasure !! Thanks guys, keep up the good work.

Superb job, so much light let into the garden after 2 trees removed. Lots of other small jobs done leaving the garden much better for it. Rebooked already to do some more improvements. They also leave everything so clean and tidy, you wouldn’t know they had been.

I recommend this service. They are very knowledgeable of the East Devon area and can be trusted even when working at unoccupied properties or where a vulnerable person lives. The costs and timing are accurately described and they seem well equipped and skilled.

Max and his team did a wonderful job of thinning out the top of our birch tree and pruning some of our other trees. Very diligent and careful with their work, friendly team, punctual, and tidied up beautifully. They also very kindly did an extra prune on a bay tree which was a last minute request from me and did it with no fuss or bother at all. Will definitely use Devon Arborists again.

We were thoroughly delighted with the efficiency, tidyness and pleasant manner of Max and his team in carrying out what to us was a major exercise involving tree removal, stump grinding and extensive cutting back of conifers. They did exactly what we required, professionally and without fuss. We highly recommend Max and the team and we will not hesitate to use them again to help with our ash dieback and willow pollarding requirements! Peter & Lynda Desmond Aylesbeare

Devon Arborists – The Power To Deliver

Devon Arborists are at the forefront of tree surgery providing efficient and safe working methods.
On larger contracts and where space allows we utilise machinery wherever possible – We have the power to deliver.

Why The Use Of Machines ?

Using machines makes jobs more efficient, ultimately providing cost savings for our clients.
The use of machines, whether material handling or access also provides a safer work enviroment for our team.

MEWP –  providing the safest possible access for dangerous trees or to access parts of trees where climbing would not be possible.

Mechanical Tree Removal – Where there is a significant volume, or trees that are considered to be very dangerous, mechanical tree removal is absolutely the safest and prefered method.

Material Handling – The use of machines to move large volumes of waste and timber makes jobs safer and far more efficient. This reduces time on site and inconvenience to our clients and neighbours.

The safety benefits are great, with less movements of workers on the ground, the chance of potential accidents is reduced.
With hugely reduced physical handling the chance of injuries from lifting and moving heavy material is also very much lowered.

Crown Reductions

The basic process of reducing the total size of a tree. The tree is reduced by a specific amount, normally around 30%, whilst retaining or improving the natural shape of the tree.

Pruning points are chosen to ensure that the tree regenerates in a healthy manner and to prevent the ingress of pathogens or unhealthy growing paterns which will cause long term problems.

Crown Thinning

A technique to reduce the overall density of the tree canopy, to allow more light through the tree to reduce shading or to reduce the chance of wind damage. A proportion of secondary and small branches are removed. The tree retains is original size and overall shape.

Crown Lifting

A process for various reasons, to allow more light for the surrounding areas allowing other plants or grass to grow. Removing branches that are causing obstructions, perhaps over pathways or roads. To create desireable views or to remove branches that are cuasing problems with closeby buildings.

Pollarding is often used in pedestrian areas or confined spaces, a method to control the general size of a tree.

The technique removes branches at specific heights promoting the growth of new lateral branches. Pollarding will need to be done on a regular basis to contain the new tree size. Pollarding is best done to younger trees.

Tree Removal

Sometimes sadly there is no other option than to completely remove a tree, this can be done in two ways. Firstly if space allows, the quickest and most cost effective way is to simply fell the tree, this however is quite rare. Secondly, the tree will have to be dismantled sectionally. The tree is climbed and dismantled limb by limb, often lowering the waste material with rigging equipment. If the tree is too dangerous to climb the only option is to use Mobile Elevated Work Platforms (MEWP’s) to gain access to the canopy.

Dead Wooding

Dead wood in trees can very very dangerous, especially if the tree is in a public space, or over hangs footpaths or roads. This dead wood is prone to being dislodged in any bad weather with the obvious associated risks. The entire crown is checked and dead wood removed. It should be remembered though, that dead wood is an important habitat for wildlife, and some dead wood if safe to leave has great environmental benefits.
