Most species are best planted between November and March, but some can safely be planted at other times of year. Feel free to get in touch for advice.


Most species can be pruned at any time of year. We can advise on the right time for specific trees.

This procedure can be carried out at any time of year.

Tree removal

This procedure is not season-dependent.

Tree inspections

Best done when the tree is in leaf, but can be carried out at any time.
