Investing in and developing the About Trees team

We are now IPAF qualified tree surgeons -again!

Quite often we have to use Mobile Elevated Work Platforms (MEWP’s) to work on dangerous and unsafe trees. These are very specialist pieces of equipment and are very productive. However if used by someone who isn’t qualified they can be incredibly dangerous. We take safety very seriously and as such have just sent 2 members of the team on a training course to re fresh and learn the usage of the two types of machines we are most likely to use – Mobile Boom and Static Boom. About Trees are IPAF qualified tree surgeons.

The course was run by OTS in Ashford, it was a fun day, very informative and full of useful lessons. It’s hard to really get across how dangerous these machines are if used by un-trained people. Most importantly a decent lunch was put on, the way to all tradespeople’s hearts!

This means we can legally and safely use these invaluable pieces of kit for you. At your house, property or premises and you can be safe in the knowledge we know what we are doing


If you have a dangerous unsafe tree, it may need a MEWP to carry out the works safely, we can help. Contact us today
