Benefits of Our Tree Inspection Services

If you have never previously considered having the trees on your land inspected or surveyed by a team of professionals, think about the benefits our inspection and survey services have to offer:


  • The Path to Compliance – Once your trees have been surveyed, we can prepare a detailed report for you to peruse at your leisure. The information contained in the report will depend on the particular service you choose but, in almost all cases, should include our recommended actions in the event any problems are discovered.
  • Avoiding Unnecessary Hassles and Expense – With regular inspections, you can keep a closer eye on your trees and take preventative action when early warning signs are spotted.
  • Smoother Planning Application Process – If you are applying for planning permission for a site on which trees are growing, you will almost certainly need a tree planning survey to support your application.
  • Actionable Information – Whatever your specific situation or requirements, a detailed tree survey from Epic Tree Care will provide you with the information you need to take decisive action.

I needed to thin an overcrowded small copse at the bottom of my garden. I am so glad I chose Epic Tree Care, as right from the beginning with the visit from Elaine to advise what the best solution would be, to the work being carried out by Jason and his team everything was excellent. The friendly men on site worked professionally and efficiently and with care to avoid any unnecessary damage to remaining trees and fences. They left the site clean and tidy, overall a pleasant experience. I would strongly recommend this company.

I recently bought a new home that had very tall, very unkempt hedges and a few rotten and self-seeded trees. Clive and Elaine's team were amazing from start to finish. Elaine came out to assess the job first and I told her my budget. She worked with it to get the maximum amount of work from it, and gave a timescale for the job to be completed by. The team appeared on time at the job and were polite, happy and very informative. They went over the job list to make sure I was happy. Then they got to work. Everything was done to an incredibly high standard. The equipment itself was very impressive. The professionalism of the team was really lovely to see. They even paused at regular intervals to tidy up around them! After they were finished, apart from a couple of pieces of twig that the wind caught, there was no evidence of them having been there! Three trees, one huge laurel type hedge cut back and a whopper of an evergreen hedge completely removed, roots and all, and all done in one day... An absolutely brilliant team. I won't need you again probably, but if I did I wouldn't hesitate to call, and I'll happily recommend you all day long. A trusted and reliable team and a truly epic service, thank you guys!

This company is to be commended! They have all the necessary equipment to make the project as seamless as possible, not to mention the safety gear provided to the staff. Jason was calm, polite and very approachable. Nothing was a problem. They removed a mature Sycamore in poor condition to a habitat stump for the birds and a Crown raise and sympathetic thin of mature Elm tree, which now looks amazing. I enquired about keeping the chippings from this tree and Jason advised to keep it if I had a place to spread it as hard wood timber makes great mulch. Be aware you need to leave it for 12 months if you want to used it around flowers/plants etc. They worked seamlessly and left the place immaculate. Considering the amount of shrubbery this was no mean feat. The costing was very reasonable and to my mind money well spent. Your business model is great!

Epic Tree Care have pollarded our big sycamore. They have done an excellent job, very quick and so careful of the surroundings that nothing in the garden was damaged despite the tree being surrounded by borders, sheds and garages. Thank you, guys and thank you, Elaine for the excellent customer service, it has been a good experience from the beginning to the end.

Carefully assessed the work to be done and promptly quoted. Agreed dates for the work to be done and came when they said. Carried out the work exactly as agreed. Team was organised and hard working. Tidied up well once the work was completed. I was particularly impressed with the stump removal and the care taken to make sure I was happy with the finished shape of the trimmed trees. Cost seemed high until I saw how many workers were in the team, what work was actually involved, how much wood had to be disposed of and the amount of equipment involved. I was completely satisfied with the work done and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

We operate with £5 million Public Liability Insurance and £10 million Employers Liability Insurance.
