Welcome To The Original Tree Surgeons

Hello, and welcome to The Original Tree Surgeons‘ website. My name is Robert (Bob) Noakes and I am the company proprietor. To give you a little information about me and my background, I should explain that after completing my apprenticeship with the ‘City of London’ in Grounds Maintenance and Landscaping, I chose to specialise in arboriculture and work within the tree industry. I subsequently spent twenty years climbing and pruning trees before moving into arboriculture management. I have now been in the industry for over 35 years.

Throughout my career I have continued with regular professional development, acquiring most of the certificates of competence in the trade. My qualifications culminate in the highly regarded ABC Level 4 Technical Certificate in Arboriculture. As regards experience, I have had the privilege of working at a number of high profile sites in London, but I have also maintained trees and shrubs in private properties, companies and schools throughout London, Essex and Kent.The Original Tree Surgeons was formed as a family business to offer a personal first class service to both domestic and commercial clients. Being locally based allows me to personally oversee tree work onsite, answer clients’ questions and give you peace of mind that contracted work is receiving a comprehensive, quality service. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service, and repeat business is the key to our success so every visit to your home or premises is treated with the utmost importance by our staff.Our clients range from domestic clients with a single tree or shrub in their garden, to large estates with multiple trees, shrubs and hedges. A typical commercial client for example, is a school site. A highly sensitive site where safe trees are of the highest importance. A free annual safety visual tree assessment is essential here for the safety of the children and staff. Typically I am on these sites a few times a year at no cost to give visual tree assessments. My team are very familiar with the code of conduct for working in such an environment. This gives our clients peace of mind and the confidence to ask us back for future works.That all important question ‘Are you insured?’ springs to mind for many customers. Yes, we are fully insured with public liability insurance up to £5,000,000, as well as employees’ liability for a similar amount.The Original Tree Surgeons is not a ‘one hit wonder’! From the first occasion that we carry out work for you, we will provide an ongoing service where I will visit your property at least once a year free of charge to inspect your trees to give you full reassurance regarding their safety and maintenance requirements.Based in Tunbridge Wells we offer tree services and grounds maintenance to both domestic and commercial clients in the following areas, Tonbridge, Sevenoaks, Tunbridge Wells and surrounding areas. We guarantee a reliable service with a quick response to every call.With all this in mind, take up our offer of a free site visit to give you advice on your tree or trees and provide you with a free estimate.
