Last week we were asked to remove an old tree stump that was very rotten. Rather than dispose of it, we contacted a local farmer to see if they had anywhere we could leave the stump so it could continue to be a great habitat for all kinds of bugs! They agreed to keep the trunk near a woodland which made everyone very happy, especially the bugs!

This week we had some spare time to show our up and coming climber some lowering techniques. The correct techniques make working with trees safer and also easier on the climbers body, by letting the ropes do all the hard work! Jake performed brilliantly and we will continue to work together, always aiming to make a dangerous job, as safe as possible!

To top it off the neighbour had some incredible carvings t...

Yesterday we were in St Neots at the the tennis club. We had quite a task for the day, several large trees trees needed reducing in size and cutting back from the tennis courts. This was a particularly tricky job as we had to avoid damaging the new fence and court surface. The job was completed within the day and the tennis club and boat club behind were delighted. We also recieved additional work from the...

We attended a property in St Neots after being recommended by the customer's mum ( you can't get a better recommendation than that!) The area that we were working on needed a fair bit of attention. We began by removing the existing trees, which included the stumps, then we dismantled the old fence. We then excavated 16 tons of soil and erected new fencing. The customers were delighted with the work! Several...

We were recently called to a property in St Neots, Cambridgeshire. Our task was to remove a row of conifer trees including the stumps and to replace an old fence, which had seen better days! We find this works very well for our customers because instead of having to get in two contractors, they only need to call us! The finished result is a much neater, more spacious and a considerably lighter garden, but m...

We recently undertook an emergency job (excuse the pun!) in the grounds of Bassingbourn hospital, Royston.  

We were confronted with an extremely large Ash tree. One huge limb had completely failed and broken off, landing on another large limb, causing this limb to split. 

We used specific lowering techniques to ensure that both of these large limbs were lowered down safely,...

Today we were in Milton, Cambridgeshire to carry out work on three different properties!

                                                                                                                                                    We were called to the first house to discuss ways of creating more light in the garden....

On a beautiful day in sunny Girton, Cambridgeshire (it's days like this that I love my job!) we were working on a rather large Walnut tree, which, as you can see from the photograph, had massively outgrown its surroundings!

We reduced the Walnut tree to bring it back to its former glory.

The results were amazing.

It was the perfect day for tree surgery,which was topped of with coffee and homemade cakes from a...

This week we were working at a property in Caxton, Cambridgeshire. We were called to dismantle a large Sycamore tree, which sadly had declined over the years and was in a very poor state. Due to its condition and its proximity to a busy public highway, we had no choice but to completely remove it, which for a dedicated tree surgeon, is always a last resort.

If you need a tree surgeon please feel free to get...
