We are recruiting, get in touch.

We are recruiting a team member. If you think its you then get in touch. We are a hard working fun bunch, that love to work with trees and nature. Tree surgery can be both an incredibly rewarding job for the right person. 

It’s feeling Festive!

Here at Dedham Vale Tree Surgery we are already starting to feel the Christmas spirit as we notice more and more of our lovely customers in Essex and Suffolk have their Christmas decorations up. If like me your Christmas shopping is not yet complete what about considering a Forestry England membership as a gift? Research shows spending time in nature, especially woodlands, improves our health and wellbeing. If you would like to know more about this please use the link below:

As usual Dedham Vale Tree Surgery will close for a couple of weeks over Christmas to give everyone a chance to have a good rest and come back revived ready for 2021. We wish all our customers a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Dog Blog

As regular customers will know my rescue dog Shelby often comes out and about to work with me.
We always check before Shelby is permitted into a client’s garden and we understand if people do not want her to come out of the truck. However 99% of our clients are very happy to see Shelby and Shelby frequently makes new doggy friends with client’s dogs.
A quick google search will highlight the many studies that show the importance of pets as a support to mental health and a couple of our regular freelance climbers bring their dogs with them too which we are happy to support.
We often find that we have clients who adore dogs but for varying reasons are unable to have one of their own and it has been known to find Shelby on a client’s sofa being hand fed sausages watching tv with the client!
However please know that we totally appreciate that not everyone wants a dog in the garden and we always check before Shelby (or any other pooch) is released from the truck

Kielder Forest

As holidays in the UK grow more popular 1000s of people flock to traditional locations like Devon, Cornwall and Pembrokeshire. However a visit to Northumberland a couple of summers ago not only provided a welcome break from hordes of people but also enabled me to visit Kielder Water and Forest Park, which is England’s largest man made woodland at over 250 square miles. Additionally it is home to the biggest man made lake in Northern Europe so there is a lot to see and do here, best of all no mobile reception so you can really get away from the demands of life! Highly recommended even if you’re not as tree obsessed as me!
