    Reducing conifer height and width


    We have 2 conifers that need reducing in height and width. We also have a Blackberry bush that needs clearing back. What sort of price should i expect it to cost, including the removal of cuttings?

    "This would be roughly £150 and then you would need to add removal onto that at roughly £40-£50."

    "Hi there,
    The height and how much you need taking down affects the price considerably but expect anything from £200- 500."

    "It all depends on the size of the conifers. The bigger they are the more risk in doing the job so if they are massive it will be dear."

    "I would need to know how tall and wide your conifers are first as it's difficult to say without further information as I may need ladders, a platform or even a cherry picker if they're really tall."

    "The price will depend on the following factors which affect the requirements for working safely (ladder, tower, platform):
    1. Height and width of the plants.
    2. Position of the plants respect roads, buildings (including sheds), boundary, other plants/features.
    3. Species of the plants (few conifers can be cut back to the wood, most would die).
    4. How much you want reduce them.

    Other factors to consider are:
    1. Access.
    2. How to dispose of the waste.
    3. Where you live."
