I can't suggest a company for your area. Yesterday I had 4 trees in my yard here in East Pathum Thani surveyed by an Arborist. They will provide an estimate today or tomorrow.  You might contact them for a more local recommendation to your area.

is there any trees left in Pattaya ?

Well in gardens you get them.... in fact they grow rather too well and need trimming back often. Perhaps why they got rid of them on the Beach Rd  and on The Beach, as they required too much work.. shame that.

Had a Banyan tree appear in my garden and in a few years it was all over the place.... had to cut it back and kill it off before it took walls out. Didn't plant it, just arrived by nature.

I still haven't found anyone, and I'm hoping someone has a good lead. Thanks in advance.

I do some tree care consulting and make referrals for tree work, mostly Chiang Mai and sometimes Bangkok.  I don't have a ready referral for Pattaya but I can try to help find someone for you.  I recommend certified arborists/tree workers from the TAA (Thai Arboriculture Association).  Urban Tree Care, previously mentioned by the Cowboy, is a Bangkok member but I don't know them. You can check to see if they go to Pattaya. 

Choosing a tree service that is right for the job and is affordable, depends on the location and the nature of the tree and the job.  If you post or PM a photo or two, and a description of what you want/expect to achieve it would help. Most people  are looking for cheap, crude work and you get what you pay for.  If you know the diffference, love your tree and know that quality professionalism sometimes costs a little more, then you are not as likely to have your tree mutilated and result in long term health and structural problems.

@drtreelove Thanks for your reply. It's not easy to take pictures, but I've tried.image.thumb.png.fd0a8de35a730954c030272925948c22.png

This is in the back of the house which doesn't have road access. The owner of the land the tree is on would of course be responsible in my home country, but I think that is a pipe dream here. From the front of the house, it looks like this:

Thanks in advance for any help.

I have put out an inquiry to the TAA organization leaders (and to the Urban Tree Care company) for a referral to a tree service in Pattaya area for an estimate. Sorry, I only know Nong Nooch Botanical Garden tree crew there, you could contact them for an estimate, but they are not oriented to this type of tree work as far as I know, mostly big tree moving and removals with crane assist. 

 

I assume that you want to clean, thin and reduce and shape the foliar crown of the tree to achieve clearance from the roof and allow air and light circulation to a patio or backyard living area, while maintaining the natural form and beauty of the tree.  And that you don't want an oversize hat-rack of bare stub-cuts. If so, ask for moderate crown reduction, crown cleaning, crown thinning and shaping using ISA Standards with maximum 25% foliage removal.  (Best Management Practices of the International Society of Arboriculture).  An educated certfied arborist will know what you mean. 

 

Even if your landlord would assume responsibility for tree maintenance pruning, they would likely hire a cheap local machete hacking job that reduced the tree to stubs. So if you care, and have funds for a professional job, it will be worth it to preserve your living enviroment.  

 

The attached list of TAA arborists does not have company locations.  I have recommended Nontri, and Friends of Trees for a similar pruning job for an expat friend in Bangkok.  Nontri bid 8000 baht, but Khun Oraya and crew of Friends did a satisfactory job for 4,500. Besides the technical climbing/pruning time, travel time, clean up and disposal are all considerations in cost.

Thanks for taking the time, I really appreciate it. I actually wouldn't mind if the tree was removed completely. It would save having to trim it periodically. It would also open up the back to more light. Perhaps in future a replacement with a species of tree more suited to the situation would be possible.
