All aspects of tree work, countryside management, conservation and planting

carried out.


So need special care

After completing the prestigious Merrist Wood Arboriculture diploma, gaining my qualifications and  licences,  I went on to work for Epsom and Ewell local authority pruning street trees and caring for trees in parks and open spaces around Surrey.

I have all the relevant NPTCs necessary for tree works and Royal Horticultural Society level one and two certificates; my ground staff and labourers are also fully qualified.


After a few years I decided to expand my knowledge by working for various smaller domestic companies as a sub-contract climber. This is where I fine-tuned my  climbing and pruning skills before starting my own company.

Needless to say I am fully insured and qualified to provide all aspects of tree care and conservation. Customer satisfaction and care for the environment is at the heart of everything I do.


"Thank you for an excellent & very professional, clean & tidy job carried out by you & your team from your initial quotation to completion.

Here are just some of  the services I offer.  They range from planning to plant new trees to felling old and diseased ones..  No job, or tree, is too big or too small.


"From start to finish,this was a professional service.They did all that was agreed on time and on budget. I have never seen such tidy workers. I would thoroughly recommend Dan for any tree or hedge work"

Trimming the sides/face of a hedge of any size to create a neater shape. It not only helps the hedge but also adds aesthetic value.


Shrubs, particularly woody perennials, need reshaping and reducing to enhance life expediency, encourage new growth and promote flowering .


Some newly-established trees, usually when about a year old, need pruning. It determines their shape and structure when reaching full maturity.


Careful removal of selected branches inside the crown allows extra light in without effecting either the size or shape of the tree.


Involves the removal of dead, dying and diseased wood in the tree's crown as well as crossing branches. It greatly improves the appearance of your tree.


Taking down a tree requires both skill and expertise, No matter the size of tree or the available space it will be done swiftly and safely with no mess.




It is important to routinely keep your hedges trimmed, not just for aesthetics, but for their general condition and health. It is recommended to trim hedges at least once if not twice a year, depending on the weather.  This particular hedge was around the perimeter of a private swimming pool, and who wants to be laying by the pool, looking at shabby hedges?



Cannot be done on all trees but when available removing the whole crown encourages new growth producing a dense head of foliage and branches.


Installing habitats for animals and insects is more important that ever. We install bird, bat and owl boxes and habitat piles for hedgehogs and insects.


Much as we love a tree there are occasions when it blocks a desired view. The answer is vista pruning which leaves the tree looking beautiful in its setting. 


Whether it is for a woodland generation or just a single tree in your garden we offer a planning, sourcing, planting and full after-care service.


Fruit trees require specific pruning to promote production and increase harvests - you never need to be disappointed with the yield again.


A useful technique  for many situations such as when a tree is too large for its position. The tree is left looking natural with a strong framework of branches.


I  am based in Cheam, Surrey, but do regular work in the area shown on this map. On occasions I do go further afield so if you do live further away contact me and I am sure we will be able to arrange something suitable.

How can anyone not love trees? They give us oxygen to breathe and clean the air. They keep us cool, both physically and mentally, and give us heat. They give us wood to build  houses if we want to stay in one place, or boats for when we want to get away. They are our legacy to the future. They are also pretty good looking as well, All they ask in return is a bit of TLC.
