About Us

We are a friendly Stirling based Arboricultural Company, which is commonly referred to as Tree Surgery. Although we primarily specialise in large and dangerous tree works we undertake a huge variety of other tasks such as formative pruning of small trees & hedges to yearly maintenance contracts.


Heartwood Trees Scotland Ltd was established in 2006 and became a Limited Company in 2014. We are currently enjoying year on year growth based on two very simple criteria: hard work and efficiency, which insures value for money at every turn for all of our customers.

We at Heartwood Trees Scotland Ltd pride ourselves on our ethos:

  • Maintain 100% customer satisfaction at all times with zero exceptions.
  • Excellent communication throughout
  • Our application and knowledge of current and up to date best arboricultural practices
  • Value for money
  • Meeting deadlines at all times
