Stump Grinding

A stump grinder  is a power tool  that removes tree stumps by means of a rotating cutting disc that wears away the wood. This allows you to turf over the ground and helps prevent shoots growing back.

Tree Felling

Either Section Felling or straight tree felling, depending on conditions and location of houses, people, vehicles that could be damaged we will professionally fell the trees you require removed.


Large scale plantations and woodlands require regular checkups and maintenance, we check for disease, parasites and density among the trees and thin forests and woodlands to let other trees thrive.

Fully Qualified

Our staff are fully qualified and insured. There are many people out there who bought a chainsaw and claim to be tree surgeons. They are easy to spot, they have fingers and toes missing. All ourstaff are professional tree surgeons.

As tree surgeons in Hawick and surrounding areas, Lothian Tree Specialists also offer a tree surveying service. Mortgage providers often request a tree survey to assess the condition of trees within and beyond the land boundary of a property before the sale reaches completion. Roots from trees sited near to homes can undermine foundations, resulting in subsidence and loss of structural integrity to the property.

Local planning authorities often require tree surveys to protect important trees within a proposed development. Rare tree specimens and those classed as ancient, or within a conservation area, may require full surveys in order to receive the legal protection of a Tree Preservation Order.

Your tree surgeons in Peebles can also conduct tree risk surveys to check on the likelihood of a tree causing damage to people and property in the future, so give Lothian Tree Specialists a call. Better to be safe than sorry!
