Hedge Services

Hedge services for residential home owners

Epic Tree Care provides hedge services throughout Moray, Banffshire, Aberdeenshire and Aberdeen city.

Do you have a hedge that is too big and blocking light, either to your garden or your neighbour’s garden? Is your hedge growing onto the highway and blocking the road or pavement? Whether your hedge needs to be trimmed or removed, Epic Tree Care can help.

We have a range of equipment for trimming high hedges or reducing the height of a hedge. Where necessary we can remove a hedge. As well as removing the hedge stumps so you can plant a different species of hedge or put up a fence.

If you have a hedge in northeast Scotland that needs to be trimmed or removed, contact us.

If you need help keeping your hedges in good order, please do not hesitate to call and tell us all about your requirements. We offer a comprehensive range of hedge services in Aberdeenshire, for both commercial and domestic customers. We are a team of qualified and experienced tree surgeons, which means we have the knowledge, expertise and equipment to tackle all manner of hedge maintenance jobs with ease. From small garden hedges to miles of open hedgerows, we’re highly capable and very efficient.

Our Range of Hedge Services in Aberdeenshire

The primary services we offer to our customers in Aberdeenshire and adjacent areas, include the following:


  • Hedge Trimming – A well-kept hedge is an asset to any residential or public garden but one that is growing out of control can be both an eyesore and a source of future problems. If you don’t have the time or tools to take care of your garden hedges, let the team at Epic Tree Care do it for you. We have years of experience and come fully equipped for all eventualities.
  • Hedge Reduction – When regular trimming fails to keep a mature hedge in check, more drastic action may be required. Our hedge reduction service is designed to help people with out-of-control hedges to get them back under control, without causing any lasting damage in the process. As some species are more amenable to this procedure than others, we suggest a site visit before making any concrete plans. As with all our hedge services in Aberdeenshire, our reduction service is available to domestic, commercial and public sector customers.
  • Hedge Removal – When larger hedges start to outgrow their surroundings and threaten to damage nearby buildings, complete removal is often the most practical solution. There are also cases where hedges in open spaces that have grown out of control cannot be saved, with removal being the preferred option in these cases too. We will always try to save a hedge if possible but some species are simply unable to recover from a hedge reduction procedure so we recommend removal as a more practical, long-term solution for these situations.
  • Hedge Stump Removal – After a hedge has been removed, stumps and root systems are left behind in the ground. Over a period of many years, these stumps and roots may naturally decay but if you want a faster solution, the best one is our hedge stump removal service. This service is performed by specialists, using state-of-the-art stump grinding machinery. Once they have finished, all that will be left is a nutritious mulch that will enrich the soil in the vicinity.


We also provide hedge and hedgerow survey & inspection services, principally to forestry organisations and commercial clients in the area but also to private individuals when required. Whatever your specific requirements may be, you are always welcome to call for more details about our hedge services in Aberdeenshire. We will be happy to answer any questions that you have and to prepare a quotation if requested.

I needed a 5 yearly pruning of my extensive trees and removal of 1 fir and 2 dead beech. I contacted Arborist Direct and they put me in touch with Epic Tree Care their agent for Aberdeenshire. Elaine came to view the trees and given her advice which was very helpful. The quote was a little higher than expected but the tree work was carried out excellently on the dates advised. The team leader George was very customer facing and helpful. The results were well worth the cost. A very professional service. I will use Epic again. If elsewhere in Scotland I will certainly contact Arborist Direct to see who their local agent is.
