Tree Surgery.


With our team of experienced and qualified arborists we are capable of dealing with all of your tree surgery requirements. Our staff are fully qualified, and we are insured to £5 million. We have been on Shropshire Council’s list of approved contractors since 2013 and also have a Professional Tree Inspector qualification.

All of our work is carried out to British Standard 3998:2010 of Arboriculture.

All brash (branches) is chipped and removed from site unless otherwise requested. Although most customers choose to keep logs these days, we will also remove all timber where required.

Our team are qualified in advanced rigging techniques and in the use or MEWPs (mobile elevated work platforms) so no matter how tricky or dangerous that tree may look, you can feel confident in the knowledge we can handle it.

We carry out:

  • • Pruning and reductions.
  • • Felling and removal.
  • • Stump grinding.
  • • Wood chipping and removal for recycling.
  • • Tree planting.

Hedgerow Works.

At Hayton Tree Services we carry out any work required to both agricultural and domestic hedges.

Hedge work includes:

  • • Trimming
  • • Reduction
  • • Coppicing
  • • Laying
  • • Planting
  • • Maintenance

Agricultural hedges can be coppiced or reduced using excavator mounted shears which makes the job significantly safer and more efficient than using chainsaw operators, saving the customer time and money.


We carry out both agricultural and domestic fencing. This includes stock fencing, post and rail, feather edge and panels.

Earthworks, Tracks & Ditches.

Predominantly working on farms and rural estates, as well as forests, we are able install tracks and hard-standings, dig and clear ditches, fit culverts and drains, and carry out all your earthmoving needs.

We also carry out conservation work using excavators for scrub clearance, material handling, and restoration projects.
