Unveiling the Art of Tree Surgery in Lincolnshire: How Springwood Tree Services Nurture Nature's Giants.

Have you ever wondered who takes care of the majestic trees that surround us?

Walking the Giants’ Trail in Sherwood Forest near Mansfield at the weekend, re-ignited my total awe of them - big and small, and it reaffirmed to me that the work we do here at Springwood Trees is meaningful. The silent guardians of our environment require careful attention and maintenance to ensure they remain in post for years to come and that is exactly what we do when we undertake our tree surgery services across Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire.

Damian and I wandered through the forest as the children excitedly read the storyboards about each giant and we chatted about the importance of “veteranisation” (the art of artificially encouraging trees to enter the veteran stages of their lives) as we have lost so much of our natural treescape that true veteran trees are now few and far between. This is just one of a plethora of responsibilities tree work professionals hold...

As skilled experts trained to diagnose, treat, and maintain trees in all landscapes, the team here at Springwood Tree Services genuinely care about the work we do. In this blog, we will dive into the world of tree surgery, discovering the important role us arboricultural experts play in preserving our green spaces.

What is Tree Surgery?

Tree surgery, also known as arboriculture, describes the practice of caring for individual trees Playing a crucial role in addressing various issues that can arise with trees, such as disease, pests, structural problems, and overgrowth tree surgery is a highly skilled and vital combination of science and art. By investing in professional tree surgery services, you can enhance the beauty of your landscape, ensure the safety of your property, and promote the long-term health of your trees.

Regular tree maintenance, including pruning and trimming, helps prevent the risk of branches falling and causing damage during storms or high winds. It also promotes proper growth and shape, enhances sunlight penetration, and improves air circulation within the tree canopy. Moreover, tree surgery can address issues like tree diseases and infestations, preventing them from spreading to other trees in the vicinity.

Tree surgery is not just about aesthetics; it is about preserving the natural beauty and health of your trees. By choosing professional tree surgery services, you can ensure that your trees receive the care they need to thrive for years to come.

The Role of a Tree Surgeon


1.⁠ ⁠Tree Health Assessment:

Our team of tree surgeons at Springwood have expertise in assessing tree health and identifying any signs of diseases, infestations, decay, or structural weakness. We use our knowledge and experience to determine the appropriate course of action to address these issues.


2.⁠ ⁠Pruning and Trimming Trees:

Pruning and trimming are often (but not always) vital to maintain a tree's form, improve its structural integrity, and promote healthy growth. Our arborists carefully trim branches to prevent hazards, eliminate disease, enhance sunlight penetration, and promote proper airflow.


3.⁠ ⁠Tree Removal:

When a tree becomes hazardous due to disease, damage, or other external environmental factors, our tree surgery teams are trained to safely remove it. We utilise specialised equipment and techniques to ensure minimal disruption to the surrounding environment and property.

4.⁠ ⁠Planting and Transplanting:

We have undertaken numerous large commercial, and smaller domestic, tree-planting schemes over the last 25+ years. Considering various factors such as soil conditions, tree size and species, and the suitability of location to ensure the successful establishment of the trees is always paramount.

5.⁠ ⁠Emergency Tree Surgery:

In the event of storms, accidents, or other emergencies, our tree surgeons are called upon to assess and address tree-related hazards promptly. Storm-damaged and windblown trees present a significant hazard to everything and everyone around them. Our team's expertise ensures the safe removal of fallen or damaged trees, preventing further harm to property and people.

Professional Training and Safety


Our teams undergo extensive and continuous professional development. As well as acquiring new qualifications, they refresh their existing arboricultural certificates regularly to ensure they retain the necessary skills to execute their work safely, quickly and to budget without the need for contingency.
