WM Tree Services provides a tree planting service trusted by local authorities and councils, landowners, property owners and agriculturalists. To optimise a tree’s lifespan, preparation is key. As such, our tree surgeons work closely with you from the outset to get a complete understanding of your vision.
For example, the soil at your site in Maidstone, Medway or the wider Kent area is key to choosing which trees you can plant. If the ground can’t support a tree’s roots, it likely won’t flourish.
Before planting any trees, you must also consider your future plans for the site. Introducing other vegetation or carrying out a construction project can have a serious impact on established trees.
Having chosen the area in which you want to plant your trees, and outlined any future plans, we focus on the most suitable species for your site. With our knowledge of trees and plants that thrive in Kent soils, we ensure the perfect fit.
With all decisions made, we move on to the physical planting stage. As you would expect from time-served tree surgeons, we plant your trees with the utmost care and attention to detail.
We happily provide professional advice on how to maintain your trees, including guidance on healthy growth. Of course, we can return to perform tree surgery services in the future too.
When well-maintained, hedges in Maidstone, Medway and across Kent are an aesthetically pleasing perimeter marker. However, if yours grows for too long, it soon becomes ragged, shaggy and unmanageable. Because hedges grow in height and width, they become dominant and, in some cases, overbearing.
The tree surgeons at WM Tree Services provide bespoke hedge trimming, either as a one-off or as part of ongoing maintenance. For optimal hedge control, not to mention visual appeal, we recommend trimming once a season – so 4 times a year.
To preserve the long-term health of your hedge, you must leave it to the professionals. Hedges come in an array of varieties, each one with their own needs. Simply hacking away at yours runs the risk of extensive damage, or even death.
Our personnel will identify the type of hedge you have before applying the relevant pruning and trimming techniques.
Alternatively, if you prefer, our tree surgeons can remove your hedge entirely, including the stumps. We then remove the waste materials, all of which we strive to recycle.
It’s a misconception that woodlands are wild places that look after themselves. In the natural world, woods are the climax vegetation. This means they find stability when death and renewal are perfectly balanced. In the past, natural events like fires and storms created holes in the canopy. These gaps allowed light to penetrate which, in turn, led to seed germination and woodland renewal.
Today, woodlands need management for this renewal process to take place. From Maidstone to Medway, each woodland in Kent has its own characteristics, so we provide bespoke solutions for managing them.
From conservation to recreation, our team adapts to your requirements without any compromise in standards.
As with woodland management, we tailor our forestry services to suit your individual needs. Forestry services is a broad term covering various specialisms. Some of the most popular work our tree surgeons carry out includes:
Mini Excavator Services
WM Tree Services owns a mini excavator with a wide range of attachments. Our highly trained team uses this machinery in arboriculture applications, such as mechanically feeding chippers, handling material and flailing, to name a few.
In addition, we also use our mini excavator for all general excavation works. By having our own machine in-house, we don’t have to rely on a third-party to deliver one to us on time. We also keep it serviced and maintained to the highest standards. This drastically reduces the likelihood of disruption and delays during your job.
