Had a surprise visit from one of the allotments we supply with woodchip!

Thanks very much to Eddie and the residents of Harrison Fields allotments for putting together such an amazing array of home grown veg.

I'll make sure Andy and Dylan get some when they get back from today's First Aid Course!

We had the absolute pleasure of working in the beautiful Cambo in Northumberland earlier this month. Our client – Cambo Community Orchard – required the tree removal of two Lawson Cypress (Chamaecyparis lawsoniana) trees which had outgrown their space in the graveyard, and the crown lift of two large Sycamore (Acer pseudoplatanus) overshadowing the newly planted orchard. #arborist #cambo #crownlift #northumberland #treepruning #treeremoval

20 mature beech reductions in a day has to be our record! πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯

Conservation area work in Fawdon, Newcastle. Using a MEWP and the new truck we nailed in in 8 hours.

Epic work by the team.

Really pleased with the sign-writing! Thanks @hoopersigns πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ»β€οΈ

Spotted us out and about yet?

We dismantled this large sycamore using a Mobile Elevated Working Platform (MEWP).

A large wound had resulted in major decay leaving the tree vulnerable to failure.

A few weeks ago we took most of the weight out of the crown and we popped back today finish off while traffic management was in place.

Big day today with the team tackling a dangerous tree removal, and two big overhanging poplars. 🌳🌳

Timing the work with the road closure on Moore Lane meant less inconvenience for drivers too. πŸ‘πŸ»

Making the most of these two conifers to get some rigging practice in for Dylan. Balancing quality slow-paced learning time with costs and productivity is Simon's biggest scheduling challenge to date.

Following a thorough check for nesting birds, 🐣🐀 we removed this hedge for a customer in Boldon safely. 🌲❌

Over the last two rainy days, we've completed a crown reduction on this mature beech and reduced a large willow tree. Wet and cold for the crew. Tops off a fantastic year for @thetreefellane. Thanks to the team for all their hard work and to our customers for being patient and helping us work through a complex 2020 with the rest of the nations small businesses. Have a great holiday season everyone!

Hello my little feathered friend 🐦. See you in a month or two πŸ‘πŸ»

Nesting season might be "over", but it's always important to carry out a nesting bird check before 🌳 work starts!

Carefully does it! Rigged removal of a storm damaged limb from a Poplar in Cleadon today.

Following a 5-day notice to South Tyneside Council and planning we've removed a large hazardous Ash tree removed in Monkton, Jarrow. 🌳

Sad to see it go, but you just can't take the risk in such a built up area and so close to a road. 😒

Crown redcution carried out on a silver birch in Shiney Row. Reducing the size whilst keeping a natural shape.

Rigging allows for safe removal of sections of a tree without damaging objects in the immediate vicinity.

Ooohh. I'm glad that weather's picked up again. Roll on summer!🌳

The flowers were a lovely touch with today's tea and biscuits! New entry into our top ten πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸΌ

Our new Arb truck would be ideal for a trip to Asda. Perfect parking bay size πŸ˜‚

Frequently Asked Questions about Tree Surgery

There are a lot of tree surgeons to choose from. Here’s some information to help you make an informed decision.

What’s the difference between a Tree Surgeon and an Arborist?

In some ways the terms are interchangeable. Tree Surgeon is a commonly used & less formal term referring to an Arborist.

In practice, however, an Arborist should be a professional in the field of arboriculture, which is the cultivation, management, and study of individual trees & shrubs, etc., and should hold professional qualifications. In the UK these terms are widely used and confused.

As a company, we much prefer the terms used by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) who differentiate between Tree Workers and Arborists.

Here at The Tree Fella NE Ltd, we are proud Tree Workers able to carry out tree pruning and tree removal work expertly. When expert scientific knowledge is required, we’d always refer our customers to an Arborist qualified to Level 4 or Level 5 for a professional survey back up by Professional Indemnity Insurance. Once the study has been carried out, and the doctor has prescribed the solution – we’ll carry out the work.

Why do I need a tree surgeon?

Tree work requires technical competence supported by a high level of training and lots of experience. For these reasons, tree work should only be undertaken by a qualified tree worker or arborist, with expertise in the area of work to be conducted.

If not carried out by a professional, tree work can lead to injuries to people, damage to property or severe harm to your trees.

No matter how small the job – it’s worth consulting a tree surgeon. Here at The Tree Fella NE Ltd, we’re not afraid to suggest if something can be done yourself to keep costs down – but equally, we’ll always be honest and inform you if it’s a task where you should seek professional advice.
