Small Tree Removal

Self-seeding happens when the seeds of a larger tree spring up and start growing, often in inconvenient places like between paving and a fence or the side of a building. They can become an issue if they grow too close to a property or interfere with drainage or foundations as this could cause long terms problems and be very expensive to rectify.


When self-seeded trees go unnoticed or are repeatedly cut they can become out of control. The longer they are left, the more the roots develop and they become harder to remove especially if they are in an established planting area.

How we can help with small tree removal

We cut down and remove saplings of up to 10ft tall and then we treat the stumps with our safe, clean Ecoplugs. The active ingredient of the Ecoplug (granular glyphosate) is carried to the growth point of the tree. When correctly applied it will reach the entire root system right to the end to prevent regrowth. Having applied an appropriate treatment there is no regrowth in at least 95% of cases, and the stump remains until it decomposes. This treatment can be applied all year round.
