In addition to this, he is able to diagnose any growths or diseases your trees might be suffering from and advise you on the best course of action.
Root and Branch have built up an excellent reputation over the past sixteen years and as a result has been able to expand, employing a team of incredibly hard working and enthusiastic tree surgeons.
Tom is keen to take on conservation work and forestry and owns a 6 tonne timber winch, which together with the Unimog, means that Root and Branch are equipped to remove whole trees.
