about us

Friendly, professional and well-qualified tree surgeons, The Blue Tree Company provides tree surgery and garden maintenance services for homeowners in Hitchin, Hertfordshire and North London.

The Blue Tree Company takes pride in it's mission to be the best tree surgery business in Hitchin, ensuring attention to detail, reliability, quality of work and customer service is at its heart.

The tree surgery team can carry out a complete range of tree work and garden services to a high standard, and will always leave the work site clean and tidy.

Quality Promise

The Blue Tree Company has public liability insurance of £5 million and all staff have the relevant National Proficiency Test Council qualifications. All work will be conducted safely and to a high standard, to your complete satisfaction.

The Blue Tree Company is an environmentally-responsible tree care company that recycles 95% of the by-products they create, selling woodchips as bio-fuel and reclaiming logs for seasoning and resale as firewood. They also use the most fuel-efficient and quiet chainsaws available, and where possible use hand saws.

Tree Work

Tree Felling - Tree felling is what most tree surgeons get called out to do, since it is a skilled, physically-demanding job that often requires specialist equipment. The Blue Tree Company is experienced in tree felling and has the skills, experience and equipment to do the job properly and safely.

When arranging tree felling, permissions are often required from the local authorities in Hitchin; the team will apply for these on your behalf, at no additional cost. Emergency callouts are offered for storm-damaged trees.

Tree Pruning - Tree surgery is not all about felling trees – some trees just need some expert pruning (OK, sometimes with a chainsaw!) to reduce their height, remove dangerous overhanging branches, or reshape a tree if it’s overgrown. Tree surgeons always take great care to ensure that after pruning – the various techniques being crown reduction, crown thinning, crown lifting or dead-wooding - the tree will look natural and well-balanced.

Stump grinding - The stumps of felled trees can be sizeable and unsightly, and make it impossible to reuse the space in your garden where the tree stood. Stump grinding uses a powerful machine to grind away the remaining tree stump to below ground level, leaving a flat clear space for you to use.

Garden Services

The Blue Tree Company also provides garden services to homeowners in the Hitchin area. We undertake your more difficult garden maintenance jobs, including the trimming of large hedges andmanagement of climbing plants. Wisteria, for example, looks beautiful in the summer but left untamed it can cause damage to roofs, guttering and fascias. Pruning wisteria at roof level requires ladders and nerves of steel (if you've ever tried it you'll know!) and really is the kind of garden maintenance job you should leave to an expert.

Excellent communication, work ethic, knowledge and rates from this well run business. Fred and his hard-working team worked diligently over the course of a couple of days to include felling, pruning and stump grinding on some large trees in our garden. The work was carried out exactly as required and the clear-up afterwards left the site spotless. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and will be using them again in the future.

Fred and his team arrived today to take down a huge Scots Pine from our garden. I can't praise them enough for their professionalism, expertise, patience with the many questions we had, dealing with an eager audience and the way in which they left the garden. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Thank you very much.

Fred and his team were fabulous. These hard working boys scaled our massive trees like squirrels and speedily chopped back three large sycamores. They were professional, polite and friendly. We were very pleased with their work and their fee was extremely reasonable. Fred was very helpful when visiting to quote for the work and I found his advice useful. We will use them again and heartily recommend them.

The Blue Tree Co was askek to cut down, pollard and trim back various trees in our garden. They arrived at 8.30 a.m. and worked laboriously throughout. They were efficient did everything well and we were very pleased with their work. When they finished the site was left spotlessly clean and tidy. The crew were accommodating, very well spoken and had wonderful manners. I would not hesitate in recommending their work to anyone who needs their trees cut, trimmed or pollarded. Thank you Fred and the other members of The Blue Tree Co. Denzil.

In January 2014, said about The Blue Tree Company

A first class professional job from the initial very keenly priced quotation through to the completion of the work. Two full days from 9am to 5pm Friday and Saturday saw 4 large Ash trees pollarded, a very large Sycamore reduced by 30% and shaped and False Acacia cut down. Fred, Brian and co worked virtually non stop to do the work in the agreed time, they were very conscious and considerate of the neighbouring gardens and cleared all debris as they went. The wood has been cut into foot length logs and neatly stack as requested. I would have no hesitation in using the Blue Tree Company again and would recommend them to all.

The Blue Tree Company was recommended to me, and I'm hugely grateful. Just first class. Polite, efficient, cheerful and tidy. True professionals who clearly take pride in what they do and go the extra mile. I shall certainly be using them again, and after seeing their work over the last two days at my home so will many of my neighbours! If you’re looking for top class tree surgeons – look no further.

In November 2013, said about The Blue Tree Company

I would like to thank Brian and Fred for the excellent job they did for me. I had a tree that had fallen and was leaning on another tree. This was very dangerous as it was overhanging the road outside our house, and would have caused great injury if it fell. Brian and Fred came out at very short notice, dealt with the problem professionally and efficiently. The danger was got rid of and we could sleep at night knowing that no harm would come to anyone. They were polite, helpful and professional; and yes they did bend over backwards, I was very impressed. I would have no hesitation in recommending you, both to my friends and family. Many thanks and regards
