Find out more about us

Take a Bough Tree Care, was established in 2003 by Toby Douglas. After university in Aberystwyth, Toby made the decision to study Arboriculture at Merrist Wood, in Surrey. In 2001 he successfully completed a National Certificate in Horticulture, and a National Diploma in Arboriculture, then worked for two years subcontracting to large and respected companies in order to gain the practical experience to compete successfully for both private and corporate contacts once Take a Bough Tree Care was launched..

Take a Bough Tree Care is staffed with fully committed, professional, responsible and service driven tree surgeons. All are professionally trained, and have at least all relevant National Test Proficiency Certificates (NPTC 30, 31, 36, 38, 39), including first aid training. All works comply with British Standard 3998.

Health and safety and risk management for both employees and the public is of paramount importance, and Toby is available to discuss methods and procedures before, during and after the work.

Take a Bough Tree Care offers a comprehensive arboricultural service for those requiring tree surgeons in Wimbledon and the surrounding London boroughs. Trees, especially those in densely populated urban areas, need careful maintenance. We offer everything from formative pruning to complete felling and removal, dead-wooding to crown reductions/thinning/lifting. Also, we welcome enquiries about hedge-trimming, fruit tree pruning, stump grinding and for climbing shrub and ivy pruning.
