Tree Services

Tree Management Est 1989.   “Getting the job done”.
Tree work.
Tree management staff are trained, qualified and equipped to carry out all types of arboricultural operations, from pruning small ornamental or fruit trees, trimming, reducing or shaping hedges to large technically difficult sectional dismantling operations on tree’s  in confined spaces. Most staff qualifications are NPTC based with a few LANTRA certificates for any courses not covered by NPTC, our staff also hold IPAF MEWP certificates essential to carry out safe oTree Services 1perations from our land Rover access platform.
Our Mewp often gives us the edge over our competitors as we can regularly do twice as much in half the time with less collateral damage.  All tools, equipment and vehicles are regularly inspected, cleaned and serviced ensuring that the customers money is spent on getting the job done and not waiting for a repair or breakdown.
All Tree management vehicles are fully compliant with chapter 8 regulations and our relationship with the County Highways ensures we have a sign or traffic management solution for every eventuality.
We are main contractors to the Stroud district Council Housing department, and Approved contractors to Gloucestershire County Council and Gloucestershire County Highways, we supply a 24/7 emergency call out service to all of our local, district and County Authorities, this regularly has us working alongside the Police and occasionally with the Ambulance and Fire brigade services as well.
Tree Management also supplies Gloucestershire County Highways with a local Snow plough and gritting service for the Wotton under Edge area.
In 2012 (after years of saying we were going to do it) we Applied for our Arboricultural Association “approved Contractor” (AAC) status, this involved a very thorough, day long inspection by an AA Inspector. All of our company paperwork was minutely scrutinised, our premises, yards buildings and workshops plus our waste and composting sites were inspected followed by our vehicles, tools and equipment and all of the service and inspection schedules for each machine, Finally our work sites, current and past were closely scrutinised for safety and quality…
The final result was, we passed first time with just a couple of items to tidy up so we could met meet the required standards.  A good day!
In 2016 however, we withdrew from the AAC scheme finding it made very little difference to our business as only about 4% of our customers knew what it meant. That’s not to say we will never return mind, The AAC accreditation was a great place to be and we still maintain the same standards. If the public awareness of the accreditation rises to a reasonable level we will re enter the scheme. I would still encourage all tree workers to aim for the quality levels to acquire and maintain AAC status, achievement is very self rewarding.
