" Rudi and his team provided the following jobs for us: pollarding a massive holm oak, lifting the crown of 2 conifers and taking away a dead tree. They were very knowledgable, kept fully in line with the council's tree-maintenance terms and literally worked until is was dark to get the job done. The next day everything was cleared up and tidy - a job well done! "
" After getting a couple of quotes from local suppliers I went with Tree Survive for work in my back garden. We were very impressed by the professionalism and the way in which Tree Survive went about the quality of his work and attention to detail. I felt we got excellent value for a lot of hard work, performed tidily and in a timely manner. Highly recommended. "
" Rudi was very prompt both in providing the quote and in carrying out the work. He and his team worked very efficiently to deal quickly and thoroughly with two overgrown conifers. All debris was removed and the garden left tidy but much lighter! I would have no hesitation in recommending Tree Survive to anyone undertaking a similar task. Many thanks, Olwen Walker. "

" Rudi and Fynn have made such a difference to our woodland. They explained the process and the benefits of what they were doing - and were brilliant at ensuring specific areas that we use for the children have been made safe. We cannot recommend them highly enough for their expertise, professionalism and their enthusiasm for what they do. Thank you both for all you have done for our Enchanted Woodland. "
- Louise Neaves, Temple Hill Primary Academy
" You cannot fault the quality of work undertaken by Rudi and his team. Their attention to detail is fantastic and everything is done to the highest standard. It is not just a case of hiring a tree surgeon, in Rudi you find a man who is passionate about his work and explains all options before starting work on a tree. If there is a way to make a tree safe and extend its life then Rudi will find it where others would simply remove it from the landscape. "
- Stephen Harding, Head Gardener Puckle Hill House
" I was impressed with Rudi's work. He was punctual, efficient and quick. Two tall trees were sectionally felled and neatly stacked in a few hours. He was even kind enough to e-mail me a few pictures of the work including a great shot of the house from the top of the highest tree. Highly recommended. "
- Peter Holroyd
" We had some crazy quotes for the tree work from several other companies, but felt Rudi's approach and pricing was fair and reasonable for what was required. We will definitely ask Rudi to do the next tree work that we have. Our little boys had a great day too, watching all the hard work and chainsaw action in the garden! "
" "I had a large silver birch tree in my small garden that was starting to rot and therefore was concerned about its stability. Having found ‘Tree Survive’ on the web and the job now completed, I would have no problems recommending Rudi and his team. They are nice guys and very professional, furthermore they left my garden spotlessly clean, void of piles of sawdust." "

An Enchanted Woodland in Dartford
Our team have been working in woodland that is truly enchanted! Cared for by a team of volunteers from the Temple Hill Trust and the Temple Hill Primary Academy, the Enchanted Woodland in Dartford, Kent, provides a base for educational visits by local primary school children and is a haven for the local community and wildlife alike.
Following an earlier site inspection, our team spent time making trees close to the pathways safe by carrying out dead-wooding. Dead wooding takes place when the branches or limbs of a tree die and become vulnerable to breaking or can become susceptible to diseases and pests. This can lead to unpredictable branch falls especially during high winds and storms. If dead limbs are left, they can also affect the overall health of the tree as rot can set in and spread to healthy areas. This can eventually lead to further damage and potentially the loss of the whole tree.
If you own woodland that is visited by the public, it is important that regular assessments are carried out by qualified tree surgeons to avoid risk of injury to visitors and to maintain tree health.
Tree Survive’s work with Temple Hill Primary at the Enchanted Woodland is part of the company’s commitment to outdoor learning and the environment. We believe in the importance of engaging with the natural world, particularly for children. There are long term social, emotional and educational benefits from participating in outdoor learning and we aim to foster an interest, respect and curiosity for the environment through our educational work.
The Temple Hill Trust is a community group managed by a group of dedicated volunteers and trustees from Temple Hill Primary Academy and the local community. The woodlands are used extensively by Temple Hill Primary Academy pupils for outdoor learning all year round alongside community events for everyone in Temple Hill to attend. More information on the woodland is available here.
