commercial and domestictree felling

Thomson Trees specialise in the safe felling of trees in all environments. We are fully equipped with a range of machinery including tracked skid steer, 7.5t lorry and tractor/timber trailer. This makes us highly efficient and cost-effective, giving us a clear advantage over our competitors when quoting for tree removal in Edinburgh and surrounding areas.

Trained and experienced

Our team are qualified to safely and carefully remove trees from all types of situations. Often the trees are in a dangerous condition, meaning options for safe tree removal can be limited. Diverse working methods and experience mean that we will have the solution to your problem tree no matter the situation. We use various methods to do this including directional felling, specialist winching operations, sectional felling and advanced rigging techniques. Depending on the situation, we can access the tree using rope access systems or a Mobile Elevation Work Platform (MEWP) better known as a cherry picker. We then chip and remove the branches and timber where required or even process the timber as firewood for our clients.

In some situations, particularly for larger trees, it may prove more cost-effective to employ the use of a mobile crane. This can rapidly reduce the amount of time it takes to safely remove a tree, and often means less disruption to the client. Our teams are fully trained and experienced in the safe removal of trees using mobile cranes.

If necessary, we will obtain permission from the council on the client’s behalf if the trees are located in a Conservation Area or subject to a Tree Preservation Order (TPO). We also manage and arrange parking suspensions, traffic management and road closures where necessary allowing our clients to rest at ease.
