" 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! "
" 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
" 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. "
" 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! "
" 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
" 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
" 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. "

" "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." "

Celebrating Trees at Chelsea 2019
The Chelsea Flower Show was not all about the blooms this year. There was a wide array of tree species on display, showing just how important they are to creating beautiful green spaces. Many featured in gardens that had sustainability and climate change resilience as core messages.
Gold medal winning The Resilience Garden (main photo, designed by Sarah Eberle) explored how forests and landscapes can be made resilient to the threats posed by a changing climate, pests and diseases. It had a mix of exotic and native plants especially chosen to thrive in habitats that mimic existing and possible effects of climate change. The Savills & David Harber Garden (another gold) was designed by Andrew Duff to be a celebration of the environmental benefit and beauty of trees, plants and grass in an urban setting. It included biodiverse large trees, a green wall and permeable surfaces.
Trees proved their value in the smaller Artisan and Space To Grow gardens too. The Family Monsters garden featured birch and hazel coppice to create a calming family space. The post-industrial Manchester Garden (photo below) promoted sustainability and climate change resilient plants and trees. The Art of Viking Garden (below) was designed as a water meadow and included multi-stem river beeches and pollarded Salix. It had a feature wall of logs to provide a striking backdrop to its seating area.
Tree Survive visited the show on a very busy Thursday but despite the crowds, once in front of any of the show gardens, big or small, the joy and calming effect caused by the trees and plants were a reminder of the powerful impact that green spaces can have on our wellbeing.
If you are planning a new planting scheme featuring trees, Tree Survive Ltd can advise on the best ones to choose for your garden size, local climate and soil conditions.
More information about all the gardens at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show can be found on the RHS web site.
