In August 2017 we were contacted by our client who was concerned about the safety of their beech situated in their small suburban front garden in Jesmond, Newcastle upon Tyne. They were concerned that the cracks in the boundary wall which were getting seriously worse as a result of the pressure that the trees roots were putting onto it and the amount of shade that the tree was casting onto the front of their property.


As this tree was protected by a tree preservation order (TPO), Stan Timmins consultant arborist for Stan Timmins and Sons Ltd had to compile an arboricultural report to justify the reasons for the removal of this tree. Stan also met with the arboricultural officer for Newcastle City Council on site to discuss the reasons and justification for the removal of this tree, it was agreed that this tree could be removed on the basis that a replacement tree was planted.

Beech Tree Removal Jesmond


This tree was sectionally dismantled by the operational team at Stan Timmins and Sons who had to carefully work around a number of telephone wires and other targets in order to ensure that the tree was brought down carefully in order to ensure that we didn’t cause any damage. This tree was removed in one day as a result of careful planning and through the utilisation of a hiab to remove the larger pieces of timber from site.

In order to comply with planning conditions we then planted an Acer platanoides ‘Drummondii’ as a replacement tree, this was agreed by the Arboricultural officer for Newcastle City Council.

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.

Tree felling.
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.

Customer in Westerhope

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.

Customer in Cramlington

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.
