In September 2017 we were contacted by a client living in Whickham, Gateshead as the canopy of their large mature beech tree was in direct contact with their neighbours property. The lower branches were also obstructing their neighbours windows and preventing them from getting any light. The client wanted to retain this magnificent old tree and wanted to ensure that any works carried out on the tree didn’t have a detrimental effect on its health.
Solution and outcome
Prior to any works taking place, we contacted Gateshead Council to confirm whether or not the tree had a Tree Preservation Order (TPO). Gateshead Council confirmed that there was no TPO on the tree and that we were free to proceed with any works that we deemed necessary.
In order to remove the direct contact issue between the tree and neighbouring property, we needed to crown reduce the tree by approximately 2m. Whilst undertaking the crown reduction works the tree was also crown raised to 5m in order to remove the branches which were obstructing the neighbours windows.

Cleared trees and shrubs from garden.
Liam and Stan did a great job removing many overgrown trees and shrubs from the garden. They worked extremely hard and efficiently, giving good advice based on detailed knowledge of the trees. They cleared up thoroughly and they were friendly and courteous. I was very pleased with the work.
The lads were extremely professional, friendly and helpful. We’re very impressed with the work done (It was awkward for them, as the tree was growing over a fence). Just as impressive was how tidy the place was afterwards. Recommended.
Halved two very large conifers. Hired through Checked and Vetted.
Liam came to give estimate, made arrangements to do the work. Text the night before with a time and they arrived at that time. Very pleasant, polite lads. They did the work without a fuss, cleared all the off-cuts and cleared up. I would recommend them to anyone , thank you.
Remove two conifers and grind down tree stumps.
In a word – efficient. From the prompt response to my initial enquiry, through the arranged site viewing to conifer removal I have found this company efficient and professional. All debris was removed completely and the tree stumps ground down to a very good depth, so that replanting this border can happen immediately. I would recommend this company.
Removal of approx 30 ft tree.
On Liam’s first visit to quote for the work, he gave us good advice and we could tell we were going to get a professional job. Arrived on time and did the work in the wet in a fairly tight space, with a shed close by. Cleared up and even did an extra small job not included in the original quote. Would definitely recommend.
