Professional Tree Services

Driffield. East Yorkshire.

The Tree Walker Arborist Ltd' we understand our trees are assets, presenting some of the most beautiful, natural architecture we can enjoy in our countryside, urban forests, streets, parks and gardens. Like everything around us, trees need care if we are to enjoy them for years to come. Periodic inspection and when necessary, work to a tree is important to preserve it for future generations. Thats why we work with you, the customer, to achieve your desired outcome for your trees, while helping you to maintain any applicable  statutory obligations. (E.g. Clearances to highways).

For example, we could assist you by pruning your tree: Reducing it to an appropriate size for its location & position. Thinning a tree will reduce 'wind sail' effect. Removing some of the dead wood, can improve the health of the tree by reducing the risk of infection, leading to disease/decay & removing dangerous dead wood *which presents a hazard to people or property below*, is an exercise in due diligence. 

When a tree is no longer healthy, we can give advice and information, so you can make an informed decision about how to proceed and when a tree requires removal, we provide a safe, efficient and cost effective solution.
