A friendly and qualified team to serve your needs

Lodge Tree Services is experienced in all aspects of arboriculture and places a strong emphasis on health and safety. We take a proactive approach to ensuring tree surgery and felling is carried out safely and professionally at all times. We carry out full site specific risk assessments daily for all our works to ensure full protection for the public and all property in and around the work area. It goes without saying that we apply the same principles to our own team and equipment. All our staff receive appropriate and ongoing training to meet with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) requirements. Our climbers and chainsaw operators are assessed for competence by the NPTC, an independent, nationally-recognised and HSE-approved organisation. For more details, talk to our team today.

"Michael and his team did a great job. They carried out work safely and professionally and we are very pleased. Michael even offered to fell another tree which wasn't quoted for as he had time before his next job! What more can I say! We will definitely use Lodge Tree Services again and would highly recommend."
