Today’s a sad day and the end of an era as we shut down the tree surgery side of our business.

I started working in the industry in 1999 and set up East Devon Tree Care in 2005. I could never have imagined all those years ago that in my tree surgery career I would get the opportunity to work with some of the industries leading professionals and to work on projects in 5 different continents.

The times now come for a change to help us find a better work life balance and to focus 100% on the arboricultural consultancy side of the business.

I owe a huge debt of gratitude to all of our amazing clients, everybody who has worked with us over the years and all the people who have gone out of their way to help me. East Devon Tree Care wouldn’t have been the success it is without your help. 🙏🏼

The Flitton Oak

The Flitton Oak sits on a forgotten piece of land in North Devon. This ancient Oak is at least 700 years old possibly older but is now at risk of being smothered by younger trees. The tree has been propped but the prop is now failing putting it at risk of collapse. After a positive meeting with Bob Stevenson, Devon County Council’s Tree Officer, I’m hopeful that we can look at options to install a new prop and begin to clear the competing vegetation to save this historic tree.
