What should you expect from TTS Cambuslang?

1.  Pay Attention to the rules. There is a multitude of factors that come into play when it comes to removing a tree in the Cambuslang area, and we make sure that we pay attention to all of them. We always work quickly, safely, and effectively.

2.  Reasons for Removing a Tree. It is hard to tell whether a tree should be removed or not simply by looking at it. Only a certified and trained tree surgeon will be able to tell exactly when and why a tree should be removed. There is a variety of reasons that include the tree in itself posing a real threat such as:
•    Dying or dead tree

•    New construction being planned and the area requires clearing
•    Tree roots are interfering with foundations, retaining walls and pools, etc. 
•    Tree has become far too large or poses a serious safety hazard
•    Tree has become badly infected or is rotting

In all of the above cases, we suggest that the tree is removed as soon as possible. If there’s any doubt whatsoever, we will carry out a tree risk assessment to determine the exact risk that the tree poses to your Cambuslang  property. When removing your tree, every standard that is set by the International Society of Arboriculture will be met to ensure a safe and efficient removal. There is no tree too big or too small for our services as we treat them all with the same respect. If a tree risk assessment has determined that the tree must go, Cambuslang TTS Service’s will take care of the rest at an affordable tree removal cost.

Cambuslang - Tree Trimming and Tree Pruning

If Trimming and Pruning is required after trees have already started to bud, it’s best to delay any cuts until after all of the leaves have grown to their full size. Then low hanging and dead branches should be pruned straight away as they pose a safety risk. Minimal Trimming and Pruning if any is required in the first three years of a tree’s life.

What should you expect from Cambuslang TTS?

1.  Early prevention. Tree Trimming and Pruning can really benefit both the look of the surrounding area and also the health of the tree. Trimming and Pruning is an essential practice in order to extend the life of your trees and ensure that they don’t become overgrown. With our regular Trimming and Pruning in Cambuslang, the tree can be assessed, and any disease can be caught early or prevented from taking over not just the tree, but also surrounding trees.

2.  Trimming and Pruning Methods. Our first step to prune a tree is to create a customised plan that will leave the tree healthy, beautiful, and entirely protected from disease. It is essential that when your tree is pruned it is carefully planned and executed. When it’s not done correctly, Trimming and Pruning can wound a tree.

​2. Need to Remove it? There are some pretty obvious situations that require removing tree stumps. If it is dying or poses a safety hazard, it needs to go. Also, if other plants and trees are suffering around the stump due to lack of nutrients from the soil, then it would also make


Full removal of trees Sometimes there are no other options but to remove a tree. Tree felling, tree dismantling and tree removal are terms used to describe the complete removal of trees to ground level which can be carried out at any time of the year except in the presence of roosting bats or nesting birds.

No matter the location and with the correct permissions, we will safely remove your tree whether it is dead, diseased or dangerous, large or small. Where space permits, trees can be felled in one single section however some trees need to be dismantled in sections for a variety of reasons, such as their location to property and buildings, highways, gardens, and even other trees.

In these instances we work off a rope and harness within the tree the Tree Surgeon will carefully dismantle the tree crown and trunk into smaller sections. Rigging equipment and techniques may be used to carefully lower tree sections where there is potential for damage to people and/or property.

We are highly skilled, certified, well equipped, experienced and fully covered with Public Liability Insurance to give you the confidence in our services. The Glasgow Tree Surgeon will carry out all aspects of tree surgery to the latest relevant British standards ‘BS3998′ of tree work, as well as other industry regulations and all our staff are NPTC trained and qualified.


Lifting Removal of lower branches to a given height.

• Objective/Result: To give headroom for vehicles/pedestrians to open up a view to allow more light into a building or a shaded part of the garden. In many cases crown lifting won’t require a large amount of foliage removal. Taking off 3 or 4 lower branches is often enough to get the desired result.


Done primarily on broadleaved trees i.e. not conifers and many evergreens. This is achieved by reducing the density of the crown without reducing the size of the crown. Crown thinning is achieved by crown cleaning and then the removal of secondary growth to achieve an even crown density.

• Objective/result: Allows more light through the crown to reach buildings and plants etc. Reduces the wind resistance, sail and weight of the crown and therefore potentially improves the stability of the tree Improves structure of the tree overall


The general rule with all pruning works is not to remove more than 25-30% of the crown. More than this would have a negative impact on tree health and therefore the safety of the whole tree or parts of the tree. Over/incorrect pruning (such as topping) destroys the natural form of the tree and can cause accelerated re-growth. Here are the most commonly applied pruning operations. Crown Cleaning ‘The Safety Prune’ Usually includes the removal of dead, dying, diseased and dangerous branches but may also include the removal of climbing plants, foreign objects, crossing branches and epicormic growth. Crown cleaning may also be undertaken for aesthetic purposes. Objective: safety and/or aesthetic purposes.


Reducing the size of the crown without spoiling its shape and maintaining a natural, flowing appearance. The ground rules for a correct crown reduction are:

• Cuts should be made back to natural growth points or lateral branches. This will reduce the amount of decay resulting from the cut and reduce the amount of sprouting from dormant buds around the cut.

• The remaining lateral branch should be at least one-third the size of the branch removed.

• This will retain enough foliage to maintain the energy requirements of the branch and tree and will help maintain the natural form of the tree. The remaining branch will continue to grow at the normal rate so there will be no accelerated re-growth.

• Pruning cuts should be made to retain a flowing branch-line.


Ideally should be started when the tree is very young. Re-growth is removed on a regular basis (every 1, 2 or 3 years). Pollarding maintains the tree at a constant size. The re-growth has weak attachment points and should not be left to get too big as they will be more prone to failure. Pollarding was originally done for small size timber production at the height above the browsing line of cattle and livestock.

Nowadays it is primarily undertaken as an ornamental form of pruning to regulate tree size. Poor pruning practice – ‘Topping Topping is often confused with ‘pollarding’ or ‘crown reduction’, which are correct methods of reducing and maintaining the size of the crown of a tree. Topping is detrimental to the health and safety of the tree, both by the decay it causes and the disruption to its energy balance. If a topped tree has sufficient vigour it will throw out numerous shoots from where the cuts were made. These grow quickly to replace the lost foliage and can soon develop into branches that reach as far as the original crown of the tree. This accelerated re-growth soon negates the original objective of reducing the size of the crown. At the same time there will be pockets of decay developing where the cuts were made and these will continue to develop and deepen.


Accurate felling of the whole tree from ground level where space and safety allow. Section-fell. Required when space and safety do not allow for the tree to be felled from the ground. Working off a rope and harness within the tree the Tree Surgeon will carefully dismantle the tree crown and trunk into smaller sections. Rigging equipment and techniques may be used to carefully lower tree sections where there is potential for damage to people and/or property. Large and/or dangerous trees safely dealt with.
