Tree Surgery


Never underestimate the importance of the formative pruning and long-term health management practices that make up our tree surgery services. Whereas woodland management and forestry services focus on crops, tree surgery applies to work on individual specimens in the Horsham area. Scale is the key difference between these three services.


Our tree surgeons offer a full and professional service range:


  • Tree Removal – Directional felling or sectional dismantling to clear land and properties of diseased and dangerous trees, or as part of a site clearance
  • Crown Lifting and Reduction – Formative pruning services to lighten the weight of the canopy, maintain shape and leave a safer, healthier tree
  • Stump Grinding – A mechanical tree surgery process, in which our tree surgeons have advanced training, using our own innovative machinery to reduce tree stumps


Forestry Services


This is a large-scale commercial service for landowners, estate owners and farmers in the Horsham area. We also provide forestry services for clients in the agricultural sector. Most types of forestry work make use of traditional tree surgery practices – such as removal and stump grinding – but with less focus on the formative side of the sector. Forestry services have important ties with woodland management and property development projects.


  • Site Clearances – Tree, plant and scrub removal to leave a clear working area for future development, for habitat improvement or for reforestation.
  • Timber Extraction – Removal of felled trees from forestry to the roadside using skidders, forwarders or cableways. This service includes sorting and loading
  • Chipping and Mulching – The use of crane-fed machinery to process limbs and branches to G30 standards for use in biomass boilers or as a mulch for gardens


Woodland Management


D. Howick Tree Surgery assists clients in the Horsham area with forestry ownership through woodland management services that help them understand their key aims and objectives. We develop detailed woodland management plans and help in the submission of grant applications. Forestry services play an integral role in management plans. Our tree surgeons make provisions for conservation areas and for land subject to tree preservation orders.


Our woodland management services include:


  • Short, medium and long-term forest development to optimise the growth of assets and income
  • Identification of structured practices to meet key aims and objectives
  • Protection of rare or protected habitats and species
  • Woodland management planning to encourage habitat biodiversity and reduce the impact of climate change
  • Measurement of crops and timber for harvesting
  • Integration of road and bridleways to accommodate timber sale, marketing and harvesting
  • Reforestation to reduce the environmental impact of timber harvesting
  • Invasive species and pest control
  • Development of new income opportunities unrelated to timber harvesting


Site Clearances


A site clearance is a combination of arboriculture and forestry services for land in Horsham that requires the removal of trees, plants and scrub. Where required, we prepare surveys and reports. D. Howick Tree Surgery also obtains the relevant permissions and provides a detailed timescale of completion. Our tree surgeons use compact equipment and machinery for domestic site clearances to remove bushes, brambles and all ground foliage types.


On large-scale developments and extensive vegetation clearances in the Horsham area, we utilise heavy plant and machinery to leave land clear for development, construction or landscaping.


We adopt a responsible outlook on site clearances and recycle all green waste derived from our projects. D. Howick Tree Surgery harvests timber for use as seasoned logs and firewood, processes smaller limbs to make G30 biomass standard woodchip and incorporates smaller volumes of waste into topsoil to sell to our retail customers as a landscaping mulch.
