Forestry & tree surgery services in Edinburgh, The Lothians & Scottish Borders

We have a passion for trees! Whether it's small forestry or a big job we're here to help.

Our staff are fully trained with a wealth of experience in all aspects of forestry and tree work. We are also fully insured with up to £10,000,000 public liability cover.

Within our forestry division, we undertake small clear fell, thinning and woodland maintenance jobs as well as large tree surgery jobs and replanting.

We specialise in managing existing woodland contracts for landowners, large and small. By carefully managing the woodlands and extracting dead, diseased, and wind damaged trees, this then gives us a timber stock to recycle into premium logs, kindling and biomass to fuel our homes, and bespoke timber kiln. By thinking outside the box, Colin has taken what was previously deemed to be ‘commercially un-viable timber’, and he has turned it into a commercially viable and sustainable source of wood fuel. Re-planting the fallen timber ensures that this fuel source also becomes renewable.

Safety is always of the highest priority.

We have 24 hour emergency service cover available.

Working closely with Local Tree Officers and government agencies. We can arrange fell licenses and assist with trees in conservation areas or with a Tree Preservation Order.

We are NPTC qualified & members of the Arboriculture Association.

  • Tree Felling
    Removal of trees to ground level. Often required for diseased, dead, or dangerous trees.

  • Small Clear Fells
    Removal of a group of mature crop trees, once they are removed, they are usually replanted. This is done for a variety of reasons including ecology work and development.

  • Thinning work
    This is conducted to remove the poorer trees or a percentage of trees in a plantation and promote growing conditions for remaining trees improving the quality of the overall woodland.

  • Tree Surgery / Dismantling
    Trees can be removed in sections as needed. Maybe required if the trees are in confined spaces i.e., close to buildings or carriage ways.

  • Tree Planting
    We annually re plant more trees than we harvest. This is through various woodland creation and maintenance projects or after major weather events.

  • Hedge Reductions
