  • Pruning some of London largest trees!

    We have been very pleased to be asked to maintain the trees for the (Duke of) Bedford Estates in central London. The Bedford Estates own a much of Bloomsbury and this includes famous garden squares (Russell, Gordon, Bloomsbury, Tavistock and Bedford) as well as large private gardens (Montague Street and Ridgmount). In the squares are some of London largest trees – towering London planes of 30m in height! We recently pruned some of these at Montague street and were so awestruck with their size that we thought we should take some photos of the view from the crown. The contract involved detailed planning and...

I am pleased to say that the statistics showed that most of our clients came to us by way of referral and repeat business – not through advertising! So in the end the best way to pick up new business is to do a good job. One example was Cairn Avenue, in Ealing where we were asked to undertake tree works for three residents in the space of just one month! Similarly at Strawberry Hill in Twickenham...

  • Oak Processionary Moth in West London

    During a recent job to crown reduce an oak tree in Grove Park, Chiswick we found several Oak Processionary Moth (OPM) nests. Complete Tree Care is experienced in dealing with this virulent pest and so were able to remove the nests in accordance with FC Guidelines, then complete the tree works. We would advise any client in the OPM control area of LBs Hounslow, Brent, Richmond and Hammersmith to inspect their oak trees for the caterpillar and/or its nests since they represent an unpleasant health hazard. The larvae (caterpillars) are covered in irritating hairs that contain a toxin and contact...
