And When Not Climbing Trees …

So you ask your staff what they’d like to do on an evening out, and given the huge range of possibilities available to them what do they decide to do?  Yep you guessed it go climbing!  So when asked what do tree surgeons do when they are not climbing trees? the answer simply is they climb walls! So here are the team at Branching Out enjoying an evening of climbing and, although the harnesses were not quite a comfy as the ones they wear on a daily basis, it’s safe to say their tree climbing skills stood them in good stead.climbing 011 climbing 012 climbing 013 climbing 018

All Change

We’d like to wish a Happy New Year to all our past and future clients.

2015 brings a new year and some changes to the team at Branching Out as we said goodbye to our Arborist Lyndon, and welcomed Steve, our new Trainee Climber.  After 5 years working for the company, we were sad to say goodbye to Lyndon at the end of 2014, as he embarked on starting is own welding and fabrication company.  Lyndon has recently established Distinctive Metal Work based on Gower and we wish him all the luck in starting his business.

We are pleased to have Steve Hartnell join the Branching Out team as a Trainee climber.  Steve is from Swansea and has shown great enthusiasm and skill since starting with the company and has recently undertaken his tree climbing and aerial rescue qualification.  We have a feeling it won’t be long before Steve is as happy as Pete is hanging around in the trees, as he undertakes further training to become a fully qualified Arborist.

 

Winter

Snow, sleet, rain and wind – it must be winter!  Given the recent harsh weather conditions, it may seem like odd advice, but winter is actually a good time to start thinking about prunning trees and undertaking some garden maintenance before the spring arrives and vegetation comes into bud.  It’s also the time of year we find ourselves responding to emergency call outs for wind blown or damaged trees. So should you be in need of our services please contact us for a free quotation.
