What is Tree Surgery?

Tree Surgery, Arborists, Tree Care – what’s it all about?

Tree surgery is a large feature in the cultivation, management and study of trees, shrubs and other plants. This means that it is a professional practice within arboriculture. Arborists do not work with forests or large areas of plants, but continually focus on the health of individual trees and plants. More specifically, a tree surgeon is a horticultural engineer who is responsible for the maintenance and repair of trees. This often includes the climbing of trees to reach the area that needs attention.

Woodland Planting Yorkshire

Looking for woodland planting in Yorkshire?

For many years, S&D Landscapes have undertaken a whole range of woodland planting and hedgerow planting on reclamation projects across the Yorkshire region. This process is typically used where the land is not suitable for general cropping, marginal land, to disguise buildings and roadways, or could be to create a shelter belt/wind protection.


Domestic Landscaping & Driveway Yorkshire

Here is an example of a major driveway refurbishment for a local GP at his home. The brief was to create an extensive parking area and driveway to access the property, also to reduce the gradient on the existing ramp to the house and garage which was very steep. It involved demolition of the existing hard surface and walls and was followed by cutting and filling the area to create new levels and a gradual slope to access the elevated site.

The compacted sub-base was overlaid using Marshall’s Tegula paving retained by brick walls and the surrounding area planted with new trees and shrubs to form a transition from paving to lawn level.
