Dave Ford Tree Care is one of the leading arborist companies in the South East, and we take trees seriously. Our Surrey-based teams of arborists and tree surgeons are all fully trained, fully insured and undergo continual training to ensure that every piece of work is carried out to respect the environment and perfectly fit the client’s brief.
We are proud to be Arboricultural Association Approved Contractors, one of the most highly recognised standards for professional tree work in the UK
The Arboricultural Association Approved Contractors standard recognises our commitment to safety standards and the quality of our work. We are fully insured and work to industry standard BS3998. We prioritise health and safety and ensure we keep fully up-to-date with all industry legislation as well as ensuring that all works are carefully risk assessed both at the quotation stage and also on the day of works.
Our fully trained and accredited tree surgeons and arborists provide a comprehensive range of services
Our services include tree inspections, tree surgery, tree felling and removal, pruning, crown lifting, crown reduction and shaping, crown thinning, tree pollarding, crown clearing, deadwood removal, hedgerow management, stump removal, tree replacement, planting schemes and emergency tree work.
We are also recognised local experts in Ash Dieback and can identify and advise on Oak Processionary Moth (OPM) and various tree-related fungal diseases, which have become more common in recent years across Surrey, West Sussex and South London.
We offer a complimentary inspection and quote from a fully trained arborist/tree surgeon for all new enquiries to ensure that we fully understand your needs and can deliver the best service for your situation, using the most up-to-date practices and industry knowledge. We also carry out local authority checks for Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs) and Conservation Areas and submit all of the relevant applications for your works in good time.
From our teams of experienced arborists to our top-of-the-range specialist equipment, our investment is in the resources to make each job as safe, efficient and as professional as possible. Your job may require a mobile elevated work platform (cherry picker or MEWP), ropes and harnesses for the climbers, a crane to remove large limbs or trunk sections, a chipper to quickly clear and recycle the wood from the tree and a stump grinder. Whether we are working in a garden, commercial property, school or academy, our aim is always to carry out the works safely and leave the site looking as good as possible and to recycle as much of the wood as we can.
