We use ropes and harnesses to access and work in the trees.  We are qualified to use mobile access platforms where it may be deemed necessary.

Our Transit Tippers are the workhorses of the company and are specially designed to carry wood chippings, which are always recycled locally at allotments and stables.

We use Timberwolf Woodchippers that are ideal for working on the roadside or home driveways.  Blades are regularly sharpened to maintain top quality wood chips.
The Tree GP  respects its obligations in matters of Health and Safety.  A site specific risk assessment is completed before work starts on any job, to ensure workers are aware of the risks associated with the work to be done.  This includes potential hazards such as overhead cables, school children, traffic, etc.
All are briefed regarding the method of work to be carried out, and the location of the First Aid kit and mobile phones.  First Aid kits are always carried on harnesses with climbers, and there is a comprehensive kit in each vehicle.  All work is carried out to British Standards 3998.

Dear Sir, please accept this cheque for the work done on my Oak tree.  On behalf of myself & my neighbours, I would like to thank you & your team for a great job.  We are delighted with the result !  Yours,     D. Edward  {Alpe St., Ipswich} 

Just a quick line to say thank you for a brilliant job today, not only pruning the two trees in the garden, but managing to unravel the out-of-control vine running through the cherry tree.  The work was carried out in a professional, efficient and tidy manner - much appreciated !  Yours sincerely,     Mrs. S. {Tuddenham Ave., Ipswich}
