Many of us put off dealing with overgrown trees for fear of cost, difficulty with access or the mess it could leave behind.
Or simply because we have a soft spot for it!
We approach every job with care and respect, not only for the garden and property but for the tree itself.
We work with small domestic gardens through to large country estates; each customer has their own set of challenges to overcome and objectives to meet.
We will assess the situation and recommend a course of action that incurs minimal disruption and cost, whilst acting in the best interests of the tree.
How we work
Upon enquiry, we’ll arrange a site visit, which will be promptly followed up with a written quote. Once our quote has been accepted, we’ll agree a mutually convenient date and time to undertake the work.
We’ll come when we say we’re going to, and we’ll do what we said we would do. And we always aim to leave the site as tidy, if not tidier, than we found it. The work will be carried out by Martin himself, along with younger brother Stewart and other trained and trusted associates if required.
Only once all agreed works have been completed will you be sent an invoice to be paid via electronic bank transfer or cheque within 14 days.
We carry aboricultural-specific public liability insurance to the value of £5m. All team members hold industry recognised NPTC City & Guilds qualifications, and our work is carried out to British Standards BS3998.
We use a wide range of tools, which are regularly maintained, and climbing and rigging equipment, which is LOLER inspected every 6 months.
About Martin Findlay
I grew up on our small family farm in rural Angus. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do at school, except getting outside to work. Leaving school at 16, I went to work on local farms and in quarries driving tractors and machinery.
It wasn't until a few years later a life-changing event came about that led me to meet a chap who earned his living climbing trees. Within a few months I had sourced employment with a local tree surgeon and got stuck into the graft. A passion for the work led me to a passion for the trees.
After years of working and learning the trade, I took the jump to self-employment in 2010. I worked at home and abroad as a freelance cutter and climber before starting a small tree surgery business of my own in 2017.
When I’m not up a tree, I help out on the farm where I live, and enjoy rock climbing and yoga. My border collie, Dog, is usually by my side and enjoys making friends with customers.
