Welcome from Tom at GM Tree Services - we are your local Macclesfield tree surgeons, living and based in Macclesfield. Before starting GM Tree Services, I gained over 10 years experience as an arborist working for a large North West tree surgery company. Now I have the the skills and experience to help you with all of your tree service requirements.
GM Tree Services can take care of all your tree needs, whether that is pruning, trimming, removing or felling. We have worked on many types of trees, including fruit trees, silver birches, magnolias, sycamores, oaks, small trees, big trees; you name it, we have done it!
When it comes to hedge trimming, pruning or removing, we have the knowledge AND experience to make sure your hedges are maintained as well as they should be. The height will be exactly as you require, they will be neat, tidy and will have any neighbours or passers-by asking you for our phone number; we will ensure you are happy before leaving.
We have assembled a team that is not only experienced but also well-trained and qualified to carry out work with safety and quality in mind. Lantra Awards is one of the UK's and Ireland's leading awarding bodies in land-based industries and we are proud to demonstrate this badge of honour to all of our clients.
We always encourage our tree surgery clients in Macclesfield to retain trees wherever possible, but sometimes they have to be removed because either they are unsuitable for their space, or they pose a threat to surrounding buildings or for a variety of different reasons.
Tree pollarding is a pruning system where the upper branches of a tree are removed, promoting a dense head of foliage and branches. It has been common in Europe since medieval times and is practised today in urban areas worldwide, primarily to maintain trees at a predetermined height.
Performing tree crown reductions ensures that all the branches are cut back to a suitable length and back to a suitable growth point. The entire crown is thereby reduced in size and volume but maintains a pleasing shape in line with the natural profile for the species.
Cleaning out and thinning the crown of a tree removes the tree crown from within, in order to make it less dense. The natural size and shape of the tree is unaffected, but the wind resistance will be reduced and more light allowed to filter through. Tree crown thinning can also limit the amount of debris that is dropped naturally by the tree during gales or periods of extreme cold.
Tree crown lifting entails increasing the gap between ground level and the first branches on the trunk. This is normally achieved by removing the lowest branches of the crown to a specified height. In order to maintain a visually pleasing shape, a tree surgery expert like ourselves will be able to advise you of your options.
Tree stumps can either be left to form an attractive garden feature, or we can grind them down to below the ground to allow for planting, fencing or other landscaping to take place; and even to make less of a trip hazard!
We can top and trim your hedges to the size and shapen you require as well as providing a regular maintenance service. We can also organise a schedule to maintain your hedges every few months or year.
We can prune and maintain your shrubs to ensure they grow to a pleasing shape and maximise the production of flowers. Shrubs can brighten even the smallest spaces and can suit any conditions.
