Expert Arborist Services in Cambridgeshire

The Benefits of Arboriculture in Cambridgeshire


Arborists provide beneficial services for people in Cambridgeshire, improving the safety of their property. Arborists also help enhance your garden and landscape. They achieve this by expertly caring for mature trees, pruning overgrown shrubs, and ensuring their healthy growth and development for the future.

This service not only ensures the safety of large trees and shrubs but also promotes their effective management and conservation. Attempting to maintain them without previous experience can result in further damage to your green space and trees.


Arboriculture is a significant and intricate task that requires extensive knowledge and expertise in understanding the biology of trees, their life cycles, signs of health issues, and proper care techniques. This knowledge is needed to accurately assess the tree's condition, provide precise treatment and fertilisation as needed.

When should you call an arborist?


  • Tree Health Issues - if you notice signs of declining health in your trees, such as leaf discoloration, wilting, dieback, or extensive pest infestations, it's a good idea to consult an arborist, to get a diagnosis and treatment plan for your tree.

  • Structural Instability - if you observe leaning, significant trunk cracks, or root damage in a tree, it may pose a safety risk. Arborists can evaluate the tree's stability and determine whether it requires remedial actions or tree removal to prevent accidents.

  • Dead or Dying Trees - Such trees can be hazardous, especially if they are near structures, pathways, or power lines. An arborist can safely remove these trees and advise on suitable replacements or alternatives.

  • Overgrown Branches or Canopy - When tree branches become overly dense, obstructing sunlight or encroaching on buildings, it's essential to have them pruned by an arborist. Proper pruning techniques will improve the tree's health, shape, and overall safety.

  • Storm Damage: Following severe storms, trees may suffer from broken branches, split trunks, or uprooting. Arborists can assess the extent of the damage and perform necessary tree maintenance.

What do tree surgeons do with waste?

At Charlie Vince Tree Surgery, we are committed to eco-friendly practices, including the recycling of the majority of our tree waste. Once our professional arborists have completed the cleanup at the work site, the collected tree waste is transported to Stobart Energy, where it is efficiently converted into biomass. Additionally, the tree trunks are processed into logs that serve as a sustainable source of heating for homes.


What our local surgery customers say . . . 

We would recommend them to others.

Charlie Vince Tree Surgery removed 6 trees and ground out 8 stumps for us.  They turned up on time, got on with the job, cleaned up at the end and left the garden tidy.  They were friendly and communicative and their work was excellent.


They were also very competitive on price. We would use them again and recommend them to others.

Brilliant job - 6 very tall trees pollarded next to guided busway

Charlie and his team have done a fantastic job. This began with checking with the tree status with the council, arranging for access to the guided busway on a Sunday and then the actual work of pollarding 6 very tall, shaky poplar trees.


They were professional, enthusiastic and very pleasant to deal with. Finally the removal of debris and clean up was really top-notch, they cleaned up the garden very well and took some extra garden debris also! They come very highly recommended from us.
