When our tree surgeons undertake work in the Uckfield, East Grinstead and Crowborough areas, we make sure to look at the big picture. So before carrying out tree pruning, tree felling, tree removal or any of the other arboricultural services that we specialise in, we take the time to consider your own needs, those of the environment and, of course, the needs of your trees and shrubs.
We believe that a good tree surgeon should always care for the welfare of your trees in compliance with national standards and the best working practices. Here at Global Tree Care, we work safely and use the correct equipment when undertaking any project in Uckfield, East Grinstead, Crowborough or the wider local area.
Tree Removal – From time to time, a tree needs to be felled for the good of the wider environment, or the safety of those who live in/around it. For example, tree removal is often essential when a species is suffering from tree disease that weakens its boughs and branches, making them likely to fall and cause damage to people and property. In other situations, Uckfield, East Grinstead or Crowborough clients require tree felling to open up land for development or new planting.
Whatever the reason you require tree removal, call in Global Tree Care to take on the job. Our tree surgeons adhere to the most stringent of health and safety standards, and we have a wealth of experience dealing with trees of all shapes and sizes. We’re skilled in both directional tree felling and sectional tree removal, which you can learn more about by following this link. After completing a tree felling, we can carry out stump removal if you so require (also available on a standalone basis).
Crown Thinning & Reduction – These are two different but equally important types of tree pruning that our qualified tree surgeons have an exceptional amount of experience in. Crown thinning involves the removal of a percentage of smaller branches making up the outer crown. This form of tree pruning creates a consistent density of foliage around a carefully spaced branch structure, and never involves the removal of more than 30% of the crown. It increases light access, reduces wind resistance/weight and is a vital maintenance procedure for broad-leaved species in the Uckfield, East Grinstead and Crowborough areas.
Crown reduction sees our tree surgeons reduce the height/spread of the crown, reducing the amount of stress placed on branches and boughs. It can ensure a particular tree is well integrated within its wider environment, and reduce shading/light loss. After this type of tree pruning is complete, the specimen should still have the main framework of its crown intact, but merely have a smaller profile. Keep in mind that not all species can undergo crown reduction; our tree surgeons will consult with you on your needs and recommend a better course of action if it does turn out to be unsuitable.
Tree & Shrub Planting – While many landowners around Uckfield, East Grinstead and Crowborough handle tree and shrub planting on a DIY basis, there are situations in which hiring tree surgeons may be a better option. Our expertise ensures that trees and shrubs are planted properly and will be able to access all the nutrients needed to encourage healthy growth. Also, especially when planting a large number of shrubs or trees, you may need to make use of our specialist equipment and manpower to save yourself a huge amount of time and physical exertion.
Woodland Management – Do you own or operate a stretch of woodland in or around the Uckfield, East Grinstead or Crowborough areas? The tree surgeons at Global Tree Care can handle all aspects of woodland management on your behalf, periodically surveying and monitoring your trees, hedges and plants, and carrying out any needed maintenance procedures e.g tree pruning, tree removal and tree felling. Find out more here.
Tree Care & Protection – We’re able to provide and install cable bracing, supports and lightning protection systems which protect vulnerable trees from being blown over by high winds, or struck by lightning – eventualities which can lead to the need for tree felling / tree removal, while posing significant public safety risks.

Hedge Trimming Services – In addition to tree pruning, we offer both domestic and commercial clients around Uckfield, East Grinstead and Crowborough an affordable hedge trimming service. Whether it’s just a small hedge in your garden, or a number of large and ornate hedges covering a wide stretch of property, we’re more than happy to take on the job. Professional trimming ensures your hedges stay healthy and tidy all year round.
Firewood & Kindling – Due to nature of our work, we build up a lot of wood that we make available to the general public in and around Uckfield, East Grinstead and Crowborough. So if you have a fireplace, stove or fire pit and need fuel, give us a call. We’re a particularly eco-friendly fuel source, as we generate wood through tree pruning, tree removal etc. You won’t have to carry out a tree felling just to fill your stores!
Green Waste Chipping – Avid gardeners around Uckfield, East Grinstead and Crowborough should consider sourcing any compost they need from Global Tree Care. For example, green waste chipping which is biodegradable and can act an all-natural fertilizer for trees and plant beds.
Global Tree Care adopts a sustainable approach to tree surgery by recycling as much green and timber waste as possible. Firewood and kindling is derived from projects undertaken in the Uckfield, Crowborough and East Grinstead areas. Green waste, including hedge trimmings, is chipped by our tree surgeons to create biodegradable products for composting.
