The conifers are a group of approximately 588 species in total. All conifers species bear seeds inside cones that formulate wooden protective structures. In all, there are seven families of conifers with the largest being the Pine family (232 species). This includes familiar trees such as pine, spruce, fir, and larch.

The project

We regular visit many of our clients on an annual or bi-annual basis to trim back Conifers. This particular row of Conifers is used to provide a privacy border to the gardens, but if not managed, it can really get out of hand. The thick, dense foliage blocks out almost all sunlight, so making sure the height is perfect for providing privacy, but not to block out the sun makes the ideal border for our clients garden.

Trimming Conifers are an everyday job for our team, but do come with a sense of satisfaction. Sometimes we are asked to create shapes or topiary as it is technically called and sometimes arches to separate sections of the gardens. This particular project was a straight-forward trim to provide a neat and tidy border.

For this task, we use a Pole Hedge Trimmer. It really makes the job much more comfortable, and you don’t get tired arms from the constant movement across the hedge. It is an excellent tool for those who want to trim their own Conifer hedges, and the Elite team appreciate the speed and accuracy when using this type of trimmer.

The outcome

We suspect the Elite team are the most vociferous hedge trimmers in the region. It certainly is a regular project for us, and we are well versed at a straight trim and tidy, or indeed making incredible shapes and carvings with this versatile species. This project was a typical example of the former.

Elite carried out both fencing and tree work for us. The fencing work consisted of approximately 50 metres of new fencing and the removal of a 15m high Holly tree along with stump grinding ready for fresh planting during the spring. Really happy with the final result the team were friendly and made sure everything was left tidy afterwards. Work was competitively priced and clearly a professional business.

Elite Trees replaced my rear fence for me. They were very efficient and friendly from the quoting stage all the way through to finishing the job. Fence looks great and I would not hesitate in recommending them.

Dear Mr Thomas, thank you and your team for an exemplary job with which we are very satisfied. With the multi-stemmed Ash removed, we have been able to see the wood for the trees, so to speak. To avoid unnecessary constraints on future planting, we have decided to have the stump(s) ground out and I understand that you will arrange for that in the near future and look forward to hearing further from you.

Would like to say that the two guys who came to tackle felling of the Robinia here at my home have done an excellent job, making it all appear so easy
