Can you spot Dylan or Simon?

The lads were carrying out three Sycamore reductions in Whitburn this morning with Andy on the ground. πŸ€™πŸΌ

The trees were cut to spec following a planning application as the trees were protected by a Tree Preservation Order.

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.

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!

A good days work today with these two mature sycamores receiving The Tree Fella attention to detail.

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. 😒

A crown reduction carried out in Whitley Bay recently

Here's hoping summer kicks in soon! Last weeks dose of the sun 🌞 has got us wanting more!

A perfect moment on this lovely sunny day to teach Dylan about the pivot point on a hedge trimmer and how to cut a square face.πŸŒ„πŸŒ²πŸŒ²πŸŒ²πŸŒ²

Where's that rain they mentioned? 🧐

Dylan's been tackling a nasty scratchy plum reduction in Whitley Bay. Poor previous pruning had led to a very dense crown. Safe to say it was a "fun" climb πŸ˜‚πŸ©Ή

The tree was located in a conservation area. Having completed the relevant planning application on behalf of our client we were able to crack straight on in today's glorious sun. 🌞🌳

The apprentice spent his Sunday afternoon washing the truck πŸ’¦. And wetting dad πŸ˜‚.

What a lovely day β˜€οΈπŸ˜ŽπŸŒ„

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.

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!

Spotted us out and about yet?

Sycamore gap? Almost. We've been in Whitburn this morning carrying out a crown reduction on this tree. The Tree was protected by a Tree Preservation Order we gained planning permission on behalf of our customer.

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

Every load tells a tale. This is the tale of a sweaty couple of days and a lot of bottles of water πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸŒ‘πŸŒž

Happy Friday bait thanks to @wolfmanns_eating_house 😍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.
