" "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." "
- M Pryor, Tunbridge Wells
" 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. "

" 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
" 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 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! "

Restoring a Beech Hedge in Robertsbridge
Our tree surgeons have been reducing and renovating a lapsed beech hedge in Robertsbridge, Kent. The beeches were 9m in height and beginning to resemble a row of trees rather than the hedgerow effect that the client was seeking. This was not your typical domestic hedge reduction as the beech trees were so tall that they had to be climbed to reduce the heights. Our risk assessment identified that their height and location made using ladders too dangerous. Once our teams had reduced the heights of the beech trees down to 5.5m, they shaped the hedge with hedge cutters and long-reach hedge cutters.
Beech hedges are a very popular choice for homeowners. Although they are deciduous, if they are maintained well, they keep most of their leaves during Winter, ensuring great privacy. They also provide great natural habitats for a range of wildlife such as nesting birds, insects and small mammals. In our case, a sparrowhawk kept an eye on the team whilst they were working!
The work carried out will rejuvenate the hedgerow and ensure that it retains its shape for years to come. If you are concerned that your hedge is beginning to lapse, an experienced tree surgeon can bring it back to life.
