Poplar Removal – Chislehurst Bromley

100ft Victorian Poplar brought down in storms

In the storms of early 2013 we had to deal with some interesting projects around the Bromley area, one of which was a very large Poplar tree that had fallen in the wooded area of a large Victorian back garden in Chislehurst BR7. It had taken down at least 20 other trees in its path, ranging from juvenile to mature. The challenge was to cut up and remove approx. 20 tonnes of timber straddling 3 rear gardens. It had also on its way down uplifted and shattered a culvert designed to remove flood waters which the area was prone to.

We had a challenge on our hand to say the least, so we got in a CAT 259 tracked loader with a grapple bucket to extract the timber and load our 7.5 tonne truck and trailer it proved invaluable although it did get stuck on a couple of occasions giving you some idea of the conditions we had to deal with.

Other than a few head scratching moments and a lot of equipment it all went to plan and on time.

Angelo had incredible patience while I was dealing with the insurance problems and once we were given the go-ahead to start removing the Poplar and other trees, Angelo and the team were incredible.

Jeremy Gibbon June 2021

Very positive experience all the way through. A small business that acts with clarity, acts as they say they will, friendly, respectful and reliable. Such a change compared to many other experiences in Bromley over the past 8 years here.

Keith Saunders May 2021

Good price and great service. A thorough survey was undertaken including photos and listening to what we wanted to achieve. Tree surgeons arrived on time, were careful and very tidy and achieved what we were after. Very happy to recommend Trees UK of Bromley!

Ralph White May 2021

Efficient, friendly and tidy crew who know what they are doing. I was especially pleased you were able to sort out the local council stuff although I knew this was not going to be contentious

Zara Sloane May 2021

Trees UK and the team we had were so professional and skilled, our giant oak has been trimmed back so that more light now comes in to the garden, while still preserving the beauty of the tree. The team couldn't have been more accommodating and responsive to any questions I had and left the garden tidier than it was when they arrived! It's also worth noting how well they managed and considered my neighbours in the process. I couldn't recommend them more highly.

Ben Howlett May 2021

Excellent service and delivered within timescales with no mess at all. Given that we live in a London terrace, equipment to access the house was found on the same day. The submission to the council in a conservation area was granted too. Highly recommend service.

Tony April 2021

The guys arrived punctually, were polite, friendly, carried out the work exactly as agreed, and cleaned up afterwards. Will definitely use Trees UK again, and would highly recommend.

Martin Cleveland April 2021

A very professional organisation right from the initial enquiry to completion of the work. The office staff are very helpful and friendly and the site operatives are very skilled in their work and leave everything neat and tidy before they leave.

Hannah Jordan February 2021

Trees UK completed works on several trees in my garden (removing a dead tree and reducing the height and shaping of several others). The whole process from quote to final invoice was seamless. Everyone was polite and knowledgable and arrived in the times they said they would. The actual tree works were carried out really efficiently, we recapped what was happening and then they just got on with it. They worked really tidily and afterwards checked we were happy with everything. All the branches were cleared away and the garden left tidy. I'm very happy to recommend Trees-UK of Bromley and would definitely use them again.

Antony Jardine February 2021

From start to finish Trees UK have been excellent to deal with; friendly, punctual, professional, very helpful and competitively priced. They made what could have been a stressful day very straightforward and the team that took our tree down were absolutely fantastic (as are all in the office)! They left the site spotless, were very mindful of our neighbours and were happy to help with any concerns I had. I would have no hesitation to use again. Many thanks Trees UK!
