Professional tree surgeon based in Fife

Since 2005, we've been using our skills, knowledge and specialist machinery to provide tree surgery services across Fife, and Tayside.

How often do you check the condition of your trees? Dangerous, dead or diseased trees can be a danger to your family, your property, to visiting friends or neighbours, and to anyone else using public right of way access on your land.

Speak to us today about tree planting, maintenance, diagnosis and treatment for disease, pruning, and tree removal. We can also deliver hedge care and trimming services. We offer our services to both domestic and commercial clients, and can provide one-off or long-term contract services for all your tree surgery requirements.

Safety is at the heart of what we do

Tree surgery often involves working at height and can include working with chainsaws. In this potentially dangerous profession, we take our jobs very seriously.

We are fully insured and always work to the British Standard (BS) 3998: 2010 Recommendations for Tree Work. We are also part of Fife Council and Police Scotland’s Fife Trusted Trader scheme, which means we’ve been fully vetted by Trading Standards.

All our tree surgeons are trained to City & Guilds NTPC level, and all our equipment has up-to-date LOLER certificates.

We place safety, conservation and excellence at the core of everything we offer.

Mr James / Fife.

"Special Branch are true professionals: from the thorough site visit discussing the relevant options to the speed and efficiency of the job itself, which was incredibly neat. Leaving the site totally debris free was an unexpected bonus."

Mrs Dodson / Balmullo, Fife.

"I am very grateful for all the hard work you and Pete put in, in taming the borders into a neat hedge. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to others."

Mrs Lindsay, Fife
